Dwyane Wade goes to court against ex-wife’s opposition to their 15-year-old daughter gender change

Retired NBA star Dwyane Wade has gone back to court to fight his ex-wife’s petition to stop their transgender daughter from legally changing her name and gender. 

Wade, 40, argued that he had the ‘full authority’ to ‘make decisions on behalf’ of Zaya, 15, when he was awarded custody of his two children in 2011 against ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, RadarOnline reports. 

Funches-Wade had filed an objection to the Los Angeles County Superior Court in November over Zaya’s name change, accusing Wade of exploiting their daughter for financial gain. 

In his latest filing, Wade said the allegations were ‘unsubstantiated.’ He also claimed that his ex failed to prove why the name change wouldn’t be in Zaya’s best interest.

Wade argued that a name change would ultimately allow Zaya to have an easier time: ‘from simple introductions and food orders, to applying for a driver’s license and filling out college applications.’
