Dwyane Wade's Ex-Wife

His Lawyers Schemed with Cops to Frame Me

Dwyane Wade
's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, is suing the NBA All-Star's team of lawyers and a bunch of Chicago-area cops for $50,000, accusing them of conspiring to lock her up for kidnapping.

Siovaughn filed a Federal lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, in which she claims she and a friend were called "bitches" by police during her 2012 arrest for child abduction and unlawful visitation with the ex-couple's 2 kids. 

Siohvaughn also accuses former cop Timothy Baldermann of pretending to be the Chief of the Chicago Ridge Police Department at the scene of the arrest. It's an interesting accusation ... since Baldermann used to be Chief, but retired back in 2010.

According to the court documents, obtained by TMZ, she also says cops wrenched her arm during the arrest and tore her rotator cuff.

Siohvaughn is suing for excessive force and false arrest, in addition to defamation of character.

The original kidnapping charges were dismissed last year, but Siohvaughn now wants justice.

So she is going to spend money on lawyers to collect $50k. She might end up spending $50k and lose.

This woman seems to have an endless amount of money to spend on lawyers. All of them can't take her cases on a contingency basis. She needs to find a way to move on wiht her life. It is becoming rather sad.

She deserves justice and it's said that her kids were taken away from her for no reason at all. Just because Wade is rich and paid the judge to rule in his favor is just dead wrong. God don't like ugly and that's why Gabrielle is feeling the same pain he caused his ex wife. I'm glad Wade made a baby on Gabrielle, that's what she get!!! That home wrecker!!!
