Think what you may about her, but Gabrielle Union wants you to know that she wasn't the cause of a broken marriage!
Back in 2009, the actress started hooking up with Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade, sparking rumors that she broke up his marriage with now ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches!
Years later, Gabrielle is FINALLY speaking out in a recent interview, saying:
"I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt. Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity. And I kept feeling like the truth would come out. The problem is, when it did, nobody cared. What I discovered on social media is that people don't read the entire story."
In the past, Dwyane’s ex wife originally had it out for Gabby — filing a suit claiming Gabby was “detrimental” to her and Wade’s two children.
Gabrielle, who remained confident during this time, says:
"I did a lot of talking with girlfriends and sorting through my feelings about the madness. This kind of love is a gift. It's so consistent. There's no way that I would trade it for people who refuse to simply acknowledge the truth."
The case was eventually dismissed after the courts concluded Funches was being less than truthful.
Through it all, Gabrielle and Dwyane’s love has remained strong, with the two of them still happily together!
We're glad Gabby took a backseat to all the dramz and took the high road instead!!!
We wish her and Dwyane the best!
