Lawsuit filed against Wade by ex-wife dropped


Posted Jul 11, 2013 6:08 PM

CHICAGO (AP) -- Another chapter in the legal battle between NBA star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has ended with the dismissal of a lawsuit.

Funches-Wade had said Wade violated the terms of a 2008 agreement requiring cash from his endorsement deals be deposited into a joint account.

The lawsuit was filed in Chicago and named T-Mobile USA, Gatorade and Staples Office Superstore.

It was dismissed Thursday at Funches-Wade's request. No reason was given for the dismissal.

The lawsuit follows their divorce in 2010 and custody battle. Wade was awarded custody of the couple's two sons.

Funches-Wade was arrested last year on misdemeanor charges of attempted child abduction after failing to return the boys to Wade after they visited her.
