This time, a Cook County judge ruled that his former wife would need to shift visits with their children from Chicago to Florida, until the court determines if she was involved with interfering with a previously arranged visitation schedule.
She was arrested June 16 for allegedly refusing to return their children to Wade’s sister for over eight hours. As a result, she’ll have to travel to Florida to see their two sons, who are 5 and 10 years old.
“Read my lips on this – you tell the kids: ‘I got arrested, your dad got me arrested’ … I take away your visitation,” Judge Leslie Berger told Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, who donned a blue sling on her right arm, reports the Chicago Tribune. “The children should not be in the middle of this.”
According to the athlete’s attorneys, the boys missed their flight that afternoon, prompting Wade to hire a private plane to transport the children so they could spend Father’s Day together.
However, Funches-Wade says it was all a misunderstanding and the situation has been blown out of proportion.
