Miami Heat Rumors: Dwyane Wade Beat His Ex-Wife Siohvaughn Funches? [Interview]

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 09/17/12 10:36AM EDT

Here's an NBA rumor that Miami Heat fans probably do not want to read. Dwyane Wade's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, is claiming that the Heat superstar used to physically abuse her when the two were married.

Funches-Wade recently sat down with Kietta Gamble for a long appearance on her talk show Real Talk with Kietta which supposedly prides itself on focusing on "real people, real issues and helps to find real solutions."

You can watch a segment of the interview by watching the video at the end of this article. However, here is a transcript of a part of the interview that caught everyone's attention.

He picked me up and held me over his head literally in midair and threw me down in our bathroom. We had an ottoman in the bathroom and he slammed me down so hard that when my back hit the ottoman it broke into four pieces and my back and head hit the concrete, the marble floor, excuse me, in the bathroom.

After that I got up and immediately went--there's a cordless phone in the bathroom, I immediately went to that phone and I was crying, I was hysterical, I went to go call the police. At that point more hell broke loose because I suppose he was in fear of being exposed because I certainly was going to call the police.

I picked up the cordless phone, he snatched it out of my hand and he threw the cordless phone against my body so hard that the phone literally broke into pieces.

If Funches-Wade is being honest about Dwyane Wade beating her, that ruins the "good guy" image that the he has around the NBA universe. Wade has always been a fan favorite because he was always believed to be a nice, down to earth NBA player. Now people may be forced to look at him in a different light.

Wade and his ex-wife divorced in 2010 and they have two kids (10-year-old Zaire Blessing Dwyane Wade and five-year-old Zion Malachi Airamis Wade).
