Siovaughn Funches Wade Breaks Her Silence


This week Dwyane Wade lashed out at his ex-wife, Siovaugh Funches Wade, after she filed to legally block their youngest child from changing their name and gender on their birth certificate [click here if you missed that]. 

Siovaughn stands her ground...
Siohvaughn Funches-Wade tells Page Six in a lenghty statement Friday that “countless full-grown famous adults” have suffered “severe consequences” from anxiety and depression — including taking their own lives — as a result of “public pressure and scrutiny.”
“I have both the mandate and privilege of protecting my children from these tragic events, well as the myriad of other negative things that have a tendency to impact those living in the limelight, but time will fail me to mention them all,” the author, 41, adds.
Funches-Wade points out that she believes God has called on her to “protect” her children.
“I’m by no means a perfect parent but I love my children with perfect unconditional love,” the mother of two says. “I will also continue to do what the laws of this land allow me to do as a parent with the parental right and power under the constitution in courts of law and not the court of public opinion.”
Wade-Funches tells us her ex-husband’s “derogatory” claims are “completely untrue” and “very hurtful” not only to her but also to their kids.
“I will not add to that pain by now responding publicly with malicious, or hate-filled, comments to Dwyane, despite his decision to say these harmful untruths about me, and despite the fact that I never went to the media or public about these sensitive private family matters affecting our minor child.”
Funches-Wade concludes by saying she will not speak “negatively” of her former spouse for their “babies’ sake,” adding, “If I had anything at all publicly to say to him it would only be one thing, ‘I forgive him again.'”

Great response and if she has anything else to say, I would only say it through my attorney and the courts. Praying for this mother.

I'm glad she's blocking their bag. If it was genuine concern for the welfare of the child, the transition would take place privately.

I applaud her. That's a decision that should only be made when that child is grown and prepared to handle any psychological consequences that go along with that decision. And no, I'm not homophobic but do believe that just like drinking is legal at the age of 21 so should decisions on changing one's name for whatever reason only be done when that person is of legal age.

Meanwhile, Dwade is all on social media getting strangers involved to side with him. We see it’s all about money and public’s opinions. Thinking he’s the better parent because he has more money! Child abuse!

I have always question Wade's motivation in putting his child's business out there. It's probably more about attention than money, but whatever. I don't blame Zaya's mom for trying to intervene. If Zaya is living her truth, then it will still be true when she turns 18 years old. There are a lot of children who know who they are (soldiers, gamblers, real estate agents, etc.), but they aren't allowed to make it official until they're legal adults. I don't see a problem with that. Zaya can wait a few more years. Plenty of people say, "It's his child, his business!" I agree. I also think that he (Zaya's dad) should have kept her business out of the court of public opinion. God bless the child.

How do you people have such strong opinions about something you know absolutely nothing about? The reason a parent puts a trans child “out there” is to let them and the world know you are not embarrassed by them and they have the family’s total support. You let your trans child accept modeling jobs not for the money (Wade is rich!), but to help them develop a positive self image. You change their name and gender at 15 because every day living in the wrong body and wrong identity is psychological torture and causes long term damage. Dwyane Wade did his homework as a parent. You people should do your homework as commenters.

I understand 8:15p but what is wrong giving the child some time and therapy to work out the dissonance first. We commenters just think this is a very rash decision and teenagers / young adults as well as adults go through many iterations before they land on who they truly are. What about emphasizing self-love, acceptance, integrity, character, service - anything else positive. It was like a full court press. Who are thinking these thought at ten - twelve and why? It seems terribly forced and reeks of an agenda. Zaya is a gifted child, no doubt. They are beautiful and amazing and brave and all of that. Give this precious human a chance to really grow and develop before making this the focus. That is all. All the public cheesin and grinnin while this person is trying to find their way is counter intuitive to healthy parenting.

8:15 you sound like a complete do-do bird. What kind of fool thinks it's necessary to put a kid who's just beginning to figure out themselves out there for the world to criticize, mock, tear down and clown? What planet do you live on where total family support is the same as support from the unknown general public? How does it help to develop a positive self image when the world is full of people who don't agree with that lifestyle? Are you thick, gaslighting or just plain dumb?

This child gotta go through puberty just like every other 15 y.o. So you telling me you think it's appropriate to publicly expose a kid that's still developing and figuring out all the little quirks and kinks going on with their ever changing bodies? See you fools really think yall gonna bully everybody into accepting this mess. Go sell that bridge to somebody else. The momma and the rest of us with common sense see through all that BS. And what the Wades are looking for is praise and money but Not happening, Not ta-day!

Who are thinking these thoughts at ten? Trans children, that's who. How to treat them is not new information.

Nobody owns their children. You're responsible for them.until the get a certain age.D Wade decided to put this child in the spot light taking her to gay parades and making all of this public knowledge. He wrote an essay on his ex wife to let the world know what a lousy mother she is why?because she wouldn't agree with him.How do you change your gender on your birth certificate?I hope she wins and keeps fighting for her son.
