Gabrielle Union on Drama with Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife: “I needed to protect myself and everything I built”
Gabrielle Union has no problem showing affection for her longtime love and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. In a recent interview with iPower 92′s T.T Torrez at this weekend’s Radio One Fest in Miami, the Think Like A Man actress addressed her boo’s split from ex-wife Siovaugh Funches and how it has affected her career.
The former Mrs. Wade has been generating headlines as of late after trying to abduct both of her children with Dwyane. While Union has distanced herself from the situation, she says that being labeled a “homewrecker” has been difficult to deal with.
“It’s hard because, aside from loving him, I want to protect myself. I’ve built my life. I built my own brand. I built my career and my career took a hit from that madness because some people refuse to see the truth, even when it’s presented to them time and time again. I love him but at some point it’s about self preservation,” she said candidly.
