A Cook County judge really has the best interest of the children in mind, and to prove it Cook County Associate Judge Helaine Berger issued a stern warning to the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade: Trash him to your kids and you won’t be seeing them for a while.
Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was recently arrested for a delayed visitation hand-off over Fathers’ Day weekend.The divorced couple appeared in court this week to decide whether or now the former Mrs. Wade should have her visitation rights with the couple’s two sons revoked, or at least supervised, because of her non-compliance with the court’s visitation order. Dwyane Wade currently has custody of their two sons following a bitter custody war. No doubt the basketball’s superstar’s girlfriend, actress Gabriel Union may be a factor in Siovaughn’s contentious behavior. Now Judge Berger is making sure that Siovaughn leaves the kids out of her beef with her ex.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
“If you tell them, ‘Your daddy got me arrested,’ I take away visitation,” “The children should not be in the middle.”
The divorce of the Miami Heat star and Siohvaughn Funches-Wade may be long over, and the ink on the judge’s child custody order dry for more than a year, but the battle between the two continues.
Attorneys for both trotted out witnesses before the judge. The issue: Should the basketball star’s ex-wife have her visitation rights yanked or at least supervised in the wake of the delayed hand-off of the boys to their dad on Father’s Day weekend?
Associate Judge Berger put off ruling on the matter until July 9. However, she told Funches-Wade she can’t spend time with her kids in the Chicago area until she reaches her decision.
