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?

This isn't about marriage. It's about divorce. There is a difference.

mother of his children on the streets ...only until the pictures were taken then she got back in her nice car and drove back to her nice house. SHAME on this low down dirty ass skank faking like she's been tossed to the side worrying every night where her children's next meal will be coming from. there are real mothers out there with children who are truly homeless and in need and you got the balls to try playing off our sympathy!

It's sad to see a woman stoop to such "FOOLISH ANTICS" because she's not "WOMAN ENOUGH" to "LET GO" and "LEARN HOW TO LIVE"!!! Whatever she gets, financially, will probably be gone within 5 years!!! Women who suffer from "LOW SELF-ESTEEM" always attract "LEECHES" who will "DRAIN THEM DRY" then "MOVE ON"!!! Hopefully, "WHEN THE DUST SETTLES" they will be able to "AMICABLY CO-PARENT"!!!

I can't imagine how far you have to sink to make a spectacle of yourself on the street. Divorce makes people crazy.
Like everyone else on this post has said-
GET A JOB!

It amazes me that people make comments that are just uninformed and stupid. She and her mom sacrificed a lot to help him achieve his dream, while his mom was a crackhead in prison and his dad was somewhat committed. Once he achieves his dream,all of a sudden, Siovaughn is not enough anymore. She had his kid,married and supported him and then he dumps her for that hollywood whore. Then after shipping her and his son back home (she was pregnant at this time), he goes public with the whore. Now if she was such a bad mom, why did you send the kids with her when you kicked her out. Dwayne is a loser and his money will not stop karma from getting him. He used his ex and her family and that is shame.

What a gold digging azz broad. This chick has some nerve. Since when is it his responsibility to fund this ho's shopping habits and attraction to finer things? This chick feels entitled to it because she squeezed a few kids out her cooch? Really? Was she there with him taking free throws each night? I hate gold digging azz chicks like her. Any woman who sees nothing wrong with publicly bashing the father of your kids on the streets of Chicago (knowing that her kids are going to see this) does not deserve a dime. DWade needs to give this chick a dose of reality and file for sole custody so he won't have to ph her a dime. I hate chicks like this. They give independent women like me a bad name.
