Dwyane Wade's custody battle with his ex-wife has taken its toll on the Miami Heat star.

CHICAGO (AP) -- The child custody battle between Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife returned to a Chicago courtroom where Siovaughn (shuh-VON') Funches-Wade invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination during a hearing on visitation rights.

Funches-Wade is accused of child abduction for allegedly failing to return their sons, ages 10 and five, to Wade in a timely manner over the Father's Day weekend.

She was supposed to give the boys to Wade's sister June 16 so that they could return to Miami to be with their father.

Wade is seeking a suspension of her visitation rights, or visitation only with supervision.

Funches-Wade's attorney, Michael Haber, said testifying Tuesday might hurt her defense against the criminal charges.

The couple was divorced in 2010, with Wade getting custody of the boys in 2011.
