Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade could end up paying $10 million in legal bills for his divorce. Two of the dozen or so lawyers in two states involved with Wade’s split from high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches tell Gossip Extra that the past few months in the six-year battle would undoubtedly make the meter reach that figure. “We were at about $8 million last year” said one lawyer who asked not to be named. “He’s paying more for lawyers than what he is paying his wife for the settlement. “It was a complicated case but it may have become personal.” Gossip Extra was told that D Wade has been paying for his and Funches’ attorneys from a special bank account funded partly with a small portion of his Heat salary and partly with endorsements. There have been several appeals in the case and Wade’s pending defamation lawsuit against Funches which also ran up the tab. James Pritikin Wade’s main attorney in Chicago did not respond to a request for comment.
