Miami Heat
star Dwyane Wade put the nail in his divorce coffin ... finally reaching a financial settlement with his ex-wife, six years after their severely bitter split.

Wade's attorney released a statement earlier today saying the NBA champ "provided a very generous settlement" to Siohvaughn Funches. Wade filed for divorce in 2007 ... it was granted in 2010, and Wade was awarded sole custody of their two sons in 2011.

The divorce was brutal, especially regarding custody -- Siohvaughn was arrested last summer for allegedly attempting to abduct their kids. She subsequently accused Dwyane of all sorts of bad parenting, including depriving them of life-saving asthma medication.

On Friday, Funches publicly accused Wade of leaving her homeless and destitute, taking to the streets of Chicago with a sign that read, "NBA Miami Heat star, mother of his children on the streets.”.Wade claims he's been paying her $25,000 a month, and also paid for her mortgage and four cars.

As for custody, it's still a contentious issue -- Funches wants visitation again, but a court hasn't decided whether to give it to her.

Marriage ... it's fun, right?

IN MY OPINION    

She has money to get a weave but not to find her a place to stay. Girl please, GO WORK!

Sounds like Funches sold her kids for $25K a month plus her mortgage payment and those 4 cars. I''ll take being kinda poor, employed and having my kids full time.

If he's paying all that money to her (more than what some actual hardworking folks with kids are making) then she's got a lot of nerve trying to humiliate him with that sign. Get a job. I can't stand women or men who think they can continue to ride people's coat tails for cash. Take care of your kids and responsibilities. Move on people.

Nice clothing for a wannabe bum. You have a mat to sit on, at least do some break dancing while you wait for someone to care.
