Things between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches are becoming uglier when it comes to their daughter, Zaya Wade. 

The former basketball player is responding back to Funches, who has publicly gone against their daughter, Zaya’s, decision to legally change her gender and stated that Funches needs to “let her live her truth.” 

Legal documents state that Zaya’s mother is not thinking about her daughter’s best interest as he is fighting against her petition. We reported that Siohvaughn has filed court documents that accused Wade of pressuring Zaya to make this decision for money. 

Wade would respond to the allegations and say, “The petition is about empowering Zaya to live her truth. Allowing Zaya to take on the milestones of being a young adult with confidence and joy, and to ensure that those moments are not clouded by the self-doubt that comes from checking a box or signing a name that does not reflect her identity.” 

He also went on to say that the court order will allow Zaya, to “live more comfortably and honestly in all aspects of her life-from simple introductions and food orders, to applying for a driver’s license and filing out college applications.” 

Wade added, “Zaya should not be forced to put her life on hold while she waits for Siohavuahgn to acknowledge and accept her truth.”
