Oh Boy, trouble in paradise for Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade! A video was recently posted on showing Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, former wife of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, holding a public protest on Friday in Chicago claiming that she had been forced on the streets, has created a new NBA crazy moment.

After leaving Friday's hearing, Funches-Wade sat down on a mat with her sign and began her antics. The former lovebirds split up in 2007 and have two sons, Zion and Zaire. The NBA star was awarded sole custody in March 2011 after the divorce, but his former wife has been a thorn in the foot ever since due to a series of custodial battles.

In the video, Funches-Wade is seen sitting next to a sign that reads: "NBA Miami Heat star mother of his children on the streets." Claiming that she was driven to anguish after losing a series of court battles, Funches-Wade told the Chicago Tribune she would live on the streets as she protested what she called the injustice of a failed lawsuit she filed in an effort to get money from her ex-husband's endorsement deals.

The lawsuit was filed earlier this month against Wade, who signed a six-year contract with the Heat in 2010 worth $107 million. However, court papers filed last week indicate that the lawsuit was dropped.

"Dwyane Wade is offering to pay only some of what he owes me if I sign an agreement never again to discuss what happened in our marriage or with our children. I refuse", the ex-wife said. "I finally told Carr I just wanted to end the case and keep my freedom and my voice. I told him I didn't want anything from Dwyane. The judge demanded the trial continue. I couldn't believe it."

There is no evidence that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade is actually living on the streets or is about to, but her latest stunt will surely stun the Miami Heat star who is currently dating actress Gabrielle Union.
