CHICAGO — Another chapter in the legal battle between NBA star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has ended with the dismissal of a lawsuit.
Funches-Wade had said Wade violated the terms of a 2008 agreement requiring cash from his endorsement deals be deposited into a joint account.
The lawsuit was filed in Chicago and named T-Mobile USA, Gatorade and Staples Office Superstore.
It was dismissed Thursday at Funches-Wade's request. No reason was given for the dismissal.
The lawsuit follows their divorce in 2010 and custody battle. Wade was awarded custody of the couple's two sons.
Funches-Wade was arrested last year on misdemeanor charges of attempted child abduction after failing to return the boys to Wade after they visited her.
