Dwyane Wade has fired back at his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade — who is trying to block their daughter Zaya Wade's name and gender change. According to TMZ, in new court docs, Wade calls his ex wife's objection to the court petition both “libelous” and “nonsensical.”
Wade said that his 15 year old trans daughter should be allowed to legally change hername and gender, despite Funches-Wade's objection.
Wade said, “A court order affirming her identity will allow Zaya to live more comfortably and honestly in all aspects of her life — from simple introductions and food orders, to applying for a driver's license and filling out college applications.”
He added, “This petition is about allowing Zaya to take on the milestones of being a young adult with confidence and joy.”
Earlier this month, Funches-Wade argued in that Dwyane “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.”
