CHICAGO — A legal battle that NBA star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife have been fighting for years has a new chapter.
The Chicago Sun-Times () reports that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that Wade is violating the terms of a 2008 agreement that requires his endorsement deals be fully deposited into a joint account they both control.
According to the paper, the lawsuit claims a total of $2 million in damages from Wade, four companies involved in endorsement deals, a financial adviser and an attorney.
James Pritikin, Wade’s attorney, said the lawsuit was without merit and that he expected it to be thrown out of court. He also said that the lawsuit “mischaracterizes” the terms of the agreement involving the joint account but declined to comment further.
