Dwayne Wade's Ex Accuses him of Parading Trans Son For Profit

Dwyane Wade with wife Gabrielle Union-WadeYou'd never know it from watching Saturday’s NAACP Image Awards, but not everybody approves of ex-NBA player Dwyane Wade exploiting his transgender son. and current wife Gabrielle Union-Wade received the NAACP's Presidents Award and took the opportunity to soak in the adoration of the alphabet mob. But Wade’s former wife accused him of grandstanding in hopes of gaining a financial windfall. 

Zion Malachi Airamis Wade is a biological male, who on Friday legally changed his name to Zaya. Since 2020, he has presented himself as a girl – against the wishes of his birth mother, now divorced from the father.

The former Miami Heat star, the ever-woke Wade, melted into mush as he explained to the NAACP awards audience that it is his duty to kneel to the wishes of his confused 15-year-old male child.: 

As your father, all I’ve wanted to do was get it right. I’ve sat back and watched how gracefully you’ve taken on a public scrutiny. And even though it’s not easy, I watched you walk out of that house every morning. As yourself. I admire how you’ve handled the ignorance in our world. I admire that you face every day. To say that your village is proud of you is an understatement. 

Actually, the ignorance is on the side of those who claim someone with male chromosomes mysteriously becomes a “female.” 

Union-Wade joined the mutual admiration society by linking black civil rights to LGBTQ rights, during her speech: 

Let’s just name a couple hard truths. First, the intersection of black rights and the rights of the LGBTQIA trans and gender non-conforming people continues to be rough — that’s a huge understatement. Even as we demand equality at the top of our lungs, we consistently failed to extend our advocacy to protect some of our most vulnerable among us. 

The alphabet movement has long attempted to compare their demands for special rights to those of black Americans seeking civil rights. It’s a mixture of apples and oranges. Black people were born that way; homosexuals and transgenders were not.  

Union-Wade wasn’t finished. We didn’t start racism, sexism, misogyny, anti-trans rhetoric and violence, she said, “but we damn well are going to be part of the army working to dismantle it. That’s what it had to be about.” 

“Yesterday was a big day for Zaya Wade,” Dwyane said. “And we wanted to make sure that the person who kickstarted us to even have an opportunity to be on this stage, heard directly from us.” 

That’s a load of bull, Zaya’s birth mother said. Siohvaughn Funches-Wade filed a lawsuit alleging that her ex-husband is hyping the child’s gender confusion to profit from his advocacy, at the expense of his son. There is a lot of money to be made from his endorsements of the alphabet lifestyle, the ex-wife charged. D-Wade “is positioned to profit from the minor child’s name and gender change with various companies through contacts and marketing opportunities including, but not limited to deals with Disney. 

“I have concerns that [Wade] may be pressuring our child to move forward with the name and gender change in order to capitalize on the financial opportunities that he has received from companies,” Funches-Wade said. Additionally, D-Wade admitted to his former wife that he expects to make a bundle of money over the son’s gender confusion. 

“[Wade] told me that he intended to make our child very famous due to the name and gender issue and also informed me that there would be endorsements/contracts associated therewith,” Funches-Wade commented. 

Wade denied the allegations, even though he’s turned public appearances with alphabet mob members, like Ellen DeGeneres and awards programs, into a cottage industry.
