Funches-Wade talked to Kietta about a number of topics, many relating to her children (10-year-old Zaire Blessing Dwyane Wade and five-year-old Zion Malachi Airamis Wade) and her ex-husband.
He picked me up and held me over his head literally in midair and threw me down in our bathroom. We had an ottoman in the bathroom and he slammed me down so hard that when my back hit the ottoman it broke into four pieces and my back and head hit the concrete, the marble floor, excuse me, in the bathroom.
After that I got up and immediately went--there's a cordless phone in the bathroom, I immediately went to that phone and I was crying, I was hysterical, I went to go call the police. At that point more hell broke loose because I suppose he was in fear of being exposed because I certainly was going to call the police.
I picked up the cordless phone, he snatched it out of my hand and he threw the cordless phone against my body so hard that the phone literally broke into pieces.
The couple divorced in 2010 but has had a significant number of high-profile disputes, both during and after their marriage.
Back in June, during the 2012 NBA Finals, Dwyane Wade was simultaneously battling the Oklahoma City Thunder on the basketball court and his ex-wife in the court of law.
According to a CBSSports.com report, Funches-Wade was arrested in mid-June for child abduction and resisting arrest after attempting to kidnap the couple’s two children (who she had no custody of after a March 2011 ruling).
The professional basketball player and his wife were still battling in court over the financial terms of their divorce when the abduction incident took place.
Wade has yet to respond to the allegations; we will keep you updated here with any more news or information out of his camp as this story develops.
