In court, Dwyane Wade defended legally changing his daughter Zaya Wade’s name, who identifies as transgender. Dwyane’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, filed a petition against her and wants her daughter to wait until she’s 18. Siohvaughn also claims Dwyane wants financial gain and violated their custody agreement. Dwyane has full custody, and although he must discuss “the major decisions,” it doesn’t say he needs approval for any medical decisions over their children. They head to trial next week.
