Ex-wife of Dwyane Wade abruptly drops lawsuit against Miami Heat star

Siohvaughn Wade drops lawsuit claiming that endorsement money was owed to her.

Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has voluntarily dropped a lawsuit that was filed on Tuesday against her ex-husband Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade.

No word on why it was dropped, just two days after filing the lawsuit.

The Chicago Sun-Times first reported the lawsuit, which was filed on July 9 in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois, that claimed the three-time champ was violating a 2008 agreement that future endorsement deals would be controlled by the both of them within a joint account.

Wade was eventually given full custody of both of their sons, Zaire and Zion Wade, in March 2011 after a bitter divorce battle between the former high school sweethearts. Funches-Wade was arrested last year during the 2012 NBA Finals after an incident in which she failed to return the two boys in a timely matter to their father. She had her visitation rights temporarily suspended.
