: Gabby Union spoke out for the FIRST TIME EVER about her "break" with Dwyane Wade and his "on break baby" with Glamour Magazine. Here is what she said:
[When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling. I finished filming the [Being Mary Jane], then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn't take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed.
Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. I'd always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn't willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family. Bottom line: If an issue's a deal breaker, it's a deal breaker.
If your relationship isn't something you're willing to give up and you can compromise, do so.
Wow, we can't believe that she puts it on HERSELF. Busy or NOT busy dude should have at least used PROTECTION WITH THE SIDE PIECE!!
So he just goes raw in someone that he supposedly met on break briefly sometime in 2013 and then she has a baby that same year? Right. He's been in that chick plenty of times before. Guess she's a loyal, down a55 chick, that all the chicks want to be like.
I think Gabriel Union is getting a bad rap from the media and society as a hole, instead of society being so negative about her and D-Wade situation, they should appreciate her honesty, she couldâ€™ve easily swept the situation under the rug and turned away from the mirror, but instead she stood her ground and face the mirror, that is why she is a strong human being that will continue to excel in life, keep up the good work Gabriel.
Smh, she is the Bamma of the week. I love Gabby however; honey if work calls, please make your money. She said herself that she pays the entire bills for her family. Why is she now questioning her family and relationship commitments? Itâ€™s called balance love. This is reality and please be clear that a Baller is going to always do him regardless if you are ten seconds behind him or 100 miles away. Keep your head up and make communication your number one priority.
I feel like a unwanted black woman in America, I feel like the only thing I am good for is cleaning white people houses, taking care of white people kids and working at low level minimum wage jobs, do you thing as a black woman I will ever be on the level of a white woman or non black woman, maybe in 1 million years
Gabby please donâ€™t make me lose all respect I have for you.. Donâ€™t ever blame yourself for a manâ€™s faults.. stop it.. GROWN WOMAN donâ€™t do that.. This isnâ€™t THE GAME.. Melanie and Derwin style.. if you canâ€™t handle that new baby and baby momma you have time to bounce pull your life on track keep that mega million dollar career donâ€™t marry this man so that when his checks stop coming youâ€™re paying for his child support.. GO ON BOO BOO.. if you want a baby you have the money to have insemination or better yet adopt
This in my opinion is making matters worse. I wish Ms Union would just cease this so called damage control and blaming herself. I wish that she would truly understand that Dwyane is a MAN. Does not matter how available she would have made herself, facts remain he is still a MAN and regardless of any other precautions she would have taken 10x out of 10 he was still GONE CHEAT! So please go on with that oh it was me and not him BS .He sat up here and casually laid up with another chick and idc how long they been knowing each other and had a whole baby with her. Most ppl just have sex and keep it moving, but this man actually gave her something she has not even done and that is bear HIS child. That is supposed to be a sacred thing and I just do not think he is her match. Million billions who cares, he is a CHEAT and that trait does NOT go away. Do not matter if you have your own show on BET MTV Centric he still did what he wanted to. Life is about making good choices, she will forever be wondering if he is really where he says he is and always in the back of head ponder if he is truthful or not especially when he on them away games too! She is human and a woman and trust me even though on the exterior she appears fine, you have no clue what is really going on in their world. I would not trust him though, that CHEATING will forever be in his DNA. He might be sorry now that his business on front street but he was not too sorry when they was making a baby smh he should have known better. Same ol story got a gr8 woman by your side and still gone leave and have sex with these other women, like for real Dwyane, really? You need my Nikes all up in your behind you CHEATER! Oh my bad, Mr I was on break so that makes it ok. Like hell!
So i guess he gets a pass for this huh? Well my husband took a one year job transfer out of state, does that mean were "On Break"? Heck you make it work! fly back-in-forth. I mean does Dwayne not know how to jack-off!! phone sexx!! Gabby he isn't DISCIPLINE enough for marriage. What's going to happen if you take on another movie role or career decision? or does he get a pass again to screw women and not use protection. I'm Just Saying.............
Girl bye!!! If this is what will make her feel better at night so be it. He woulda been cheating even if she didn't have a career, don't make excuses for him. I doubt he would compromise his career for her.
She's 41 years old, she better make that money while she can....hopefully that wasn't a "Kobe" I'm sorry ring and he'll actually marry her.
THIS BISH.... HOW STUPID ARE YOU???? If it makes you feel good to blame yourself for his cheating on you then at least have the decency to keep that ish to yourself!!!! He has money... He could have flown to where ever you were if he wanted to get some... He didn't have to go to the next chick.... Denial is ugly!!!!
He just wasn't that into you Gabby. Dwayne could have jumped on a plane to visit you if he was lonely. A surprise weekend visit to spend with your Boo is romantic. Dwayne is still a boy and Gabs is a fool.
Broken hearted , confused, embarrassed ashamed, In love. You can never attract someone unlike yourself.. We give Gabrielle too much credit she attracted someone to her who is like her... We give too many celebrities too much credit for being the kind of people we wish them to be and not who they really are. We see her as a beautiful black women, but does she see herself as that? We see her a a valuable person but does she see herself as that? Obviously not so much...and honestly we can understand that as many of us are the same way.
Really? Gabby, stop making excuses for the situation you are in. Donâ€™t let a man, especially a cheating man, change you. You were working. You were getting your money. If D Wade was too selfish to understand that you had a career before you had him, then maybe he isnâ€™t the one for you. No matter how much he claims to love you, says he wonâ€™t do it again, apologizes and especially no matter how big that diamond is, he will cheat again and without a rubber. That makes it even harder on the woman who is trying to do everything right. Yes, he cheated. Sometimes, that can be worked throughâ€¦sometimes. But, he did it unprotected and made a baby from it. He didnâ€™t care about his life or hers. All he wanted was to feel a nut without a rubber getting in the way. And then he did it with a career baby mama. Come on men. Yâ€™all got to do better than this.
Gabby is an athletes dream (for all the wrong reasons). he can go raw in a groupie, knock her up, and still come home and be able to sleep comfortably at night after tellin her that he's havin an illigitiment. a pro athletes DREAM GIRL!
It's called being a real mature woman, not a stupid hoe who doesn't understand the meaning of culpability. Too many of these black woman have an ego complex, they have never apologized for a thing in their life, and they fuk up all the time. They go thru life blaming their problems on everyone else, and striving to be a victim in every circumstance. It is so pathetic, and that's why successful black men want no part of most of them...why would a man want a woman who blames HIM when SHE fuks up. Gabby knows what's up, cause she is successful herself, I applaud her, she is the definition of class for admitting this and being a real woman who accepts her responsibility, not a hood rat looking for a hand out and a never ending credit card. Keep tripping MTO, that's why all yo fat asses are so broke and bitter eating hostess cakes for breakfast ahhhaaaa
So sad that Gabby has such a low self esteem!!! First staying with a man that not only cheats but does not bother to wear a condom. Now she is blaming herself ?? A cheater is a cheater Boo Boo. Cheated on his baby mama with you now he's cheating on you. No one escapes Karma.
We must look at the facts here. This man cheated on his first wife with G.U. and he had two sons. He gets divorced and still has two sons to raise a NBA career and trying to balance a relationship with her. Then they take a break and GU gets to work on her career which she needs to focus on, and they take a break and during the break he impregnates some internet twitter type side piece. Hold up because that is a what I call a "deal breaker". It would have had to be a wrap for me. Part of it is karma for dealing with him while he was still in a marriage, messy or not, but the rest is just plain foolishness and drama. Now here's what's on the table for her DW, his three children, two baby mama's and GU has no children...at least not yet. This is why we as black women are in trouble. She should have never gotten involved with him while he was married because in my opinion, that engagement ring is a consolation prize for being a door mate. GU is a pretty, intelligent and successful woman who needs to focus on healing herself so she can avoid falling in these sink holes that keep appearing in the road on her journey. What is it with DW because I don't see it and it has to be more than his money because at the end of the day a man like that could never make me happy. All he could do is buy me things but things don't make you happy. I don't see any good coming out of this "union", no pun intended. She should not be afraid that if she is not with him he will be happy with someone else, because he has already shown her she can be with him and he will still be with another woman or women for that matter. Unprotected sex and a baby is a recipe for disaster and definitely not a good way to start off a second marriage for him or her.
...BECAUSE OF HER CAREER???
BET GIGS ARE NOT CONSIDERED A "CAREER" IN HOLLYWOOD.
"STRUGGLE" AND "HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE" CAREER IS MORE LIKE IT.
WHEN YOU'LL STAR IN A BLOCKBUSTER...OR GET ON "A" RATING SHOW LIKE "SCANDAL"...THEN YOU'LL BE ENTITLED TO USE THAT TERM.
FOR NOW YOU'RE JUST A STRUGGLE ACTRESS...STILL HOPING TO GET THAT BIG BREAK...AND WHO MOONLIGHTS AS A BABYSITTER.... FOR SIO.
AS FOR THAT "BIG BREAK"...MMM..IF I WAS YOU I WOULDN'T HOLD MY BREATH TOO LONG...
YOUR REPUTATION PRECEDES YOU HONEY...AND IF YOU WERE THAT GOOD OF AN ACTRESS...AND HAD THAT "IT" FACTOR...YOU WOULD'VE MADE IT A LONG TIME AGO.
TIME TO BRUSH UP ON YOUR BABYSITTING SKILLS...ANOTHER BUNDLE OF JOY JUST GOT ADDED TO YOUR TEAM.
GARCEILLE BEAVIS THAT BLACK B*TCH FROM THE JAMIE FOX SHOW THAT MARRIED THAT WHITE MAN WHOM CHEATED ON HER THE WHOLE TIME THEY WERE MARRIED SISTAS DONT TALK ABOUT THAT,STACEY DASH GOT HER AZZ BEAT BY HER EX WHITE HUSBAND,BLACK WOMEN WHO SLEEP WITH WHITE MEN ARE TRASH WHITE PEOPLE STINK LIKE DOGS WITH THAT AWFUL PINK FLESH!!
Okay! I am reading everyone comments and I just want to say!! Please understand me very well!! Everyone is so judgmental!!! Every female that is following this story is so full of shit! I've been in both their shoes and it's not easy when you have your heart and family and the respect for that person to just walk away. YUP! Men are going to do what we as females will allow them (men) too, but it's up to her (Union) make that choice,that does not mean she any less of a person (female) or she making the wrong choices. Let her make that choice for her self. The world is only looking in from the outside including myself... Believe me she make the right choices with this situation. Not us!!!
FYI: Please ladies being strong is one thing but following your heart does not make you weak.
I hate when people say "follow your heart" did you know that the heart is very deceptive? It canmake you do iirresponsible and rash moves when solely relied on. Logic and integrity is the balance not just acting on the fact that u just "love him"
ugh...you gonna take the whole blame for this?...he had unprotected sex during yal "break" ....i know men/women has needs but if you're not worth the short pause then...bounce out ...smh yal be safe..the pull out method barely works for avoiding pregnancy but it's not match for that monster
What about our daughters....Is this excuse really ok...this just makes it harder for our daughters to find a decent men when they grow up......she is too old for all this bull...I thought we mature with age...what is next sleeping with a married man is going to be a pass...
This is the kind of faulty blame that men put on women, and some women get caught up and start believing it also. Like critical theorists and many postmodernists in academia, one must ask, "whose interests does this serve?" when we come across such dynamics, whether it be in our own personal lives or even the media (such as stories like this and "lessons" found in movies, etc.). Be aware, because illogicality repeatedly fed becomes accepted without question.
that is so crazy that she would feel that way.. he just plain out messed around no hiding that.. i was reading an article on maniacalpress where this lady bit of her boyfriend's testicles in a domestic dispute because of something he did that was similar... sad world we live in
Chile unless a man is a virgin or celibate, he's going to fugg other women especially a celebrity male. A lot of you hoes are so delusional....come into reality b*tches! Most men are still attracted to multiple women even when they are in relationship. Women don't become ugly because a man is tied down but a lot of you hoes become more annoying.
Gabriel Union thinks she's
Hillary Clinton ...Beyonce
Desperate to marry Wade cause
- wants to make history / hall of fame
- more money
Gabriel loves attention .
An wants a family but she probably have infertility issues .
Or self absorbed she refuse to have a baby
Ignorant b ytch syndrome. Why the fugg would you blame your damn self for your man's indiscretions and procreation of a child while he was supposed to be with you. This chick is dumb, desperate or determined to keep this loser.
He probably crept out of their bed in the middle of the night or while they were together on some bs excursion to hit up homegirl to impregnate her. Union doesn't know when they were getting busy. So this mean Gabby got a pity ring.
1. this bish done lost it (nene voice) how you gonna blame yourself for working on your career? Your aspirations for success do not equate to compromising fidelity. What the fuck you gonna do if you get sick, or have a difficult pregnancy? Blame yourself for the flu? women are human. Dis nigga dwade travels to play bball for a living.. should she fuck another nigga cuz he's being a provider. please gtfoh with that, and take those subservient low self esteem bitches with you.
2.) id respect her more if she said.. he cheated. he lied. i love him and made a decision to take him back. how you feel about that, is unimportant to me. this is my mistake to make and i make it willingly. next question....
3.) his ex wife gave up her life to help him with his career.. where did that get her? #boomcak
She was supposed to be busy with her career, she's not married to him. Look what happened to Ashanti. He showed his "real character". He apologized by proposing (so lame). Gabrielle supports his career but he can't support hers. She hasn't done that much career wise since getting with him that can justify this. He portrays Mr. Perfect but at this point I'm not even sure if he is Mr. Right.
Lol....ahh..the drama continues..smh...

I love that her smug self has been taken down a peg.
She always around like her shit don't stink.
Now she knows how Wade's ex wife felt when she was dropped for her.
She can spin this all the way she likes but bottom line is she is sitting with egg on her face now.
All that sublimal tweeting and arrogance, LOL.
Who looks stupid now Gabby?
And by the way, this is not the last time this will happen. You may look good now, but 10 years down the line, age will catch up with you and you will become an old lady whilst Wade will be in his prime, dealing with pretty 20 something's throwing themselves at him. . What do u think will happen then?
I believe that Gabby has such low self esteem because she was once r _aped so she's use to blaming herself but it is NOT her fault that D-Wade basically cheated on her.D=Wade seems immature and quite seems quite selfish.
Gabby is an actress and he need to support her career just as she supports his career. When she made "Being Mary Jane" ,he could have flown out to see her and he also could have flown to Las Vegas when she made "Think Like a Man" because it's not as if he doesn't have the money to buy a plane ticket....
I feel for Gabby and any woman with such low self esteem.....
@Thandi...Girl bye! Go have several seats and while you're at it go deal with the man that cheated on you.I'm sick of dumb broads like you that always want to target Gabby for the fact that she had a relationship with a dude who was LEGALLY separated from his wife and had filed divorce papers.
It's time for bitter broads like you to get over it ...It's time for Gabby to choose to love herself and let D-Wade go because he's too immature and so selfish .He basically threw a tantrum because Gabby unlike his first wife actually have a career and instead of supporting their relationship by buying a ticket and going to her location,he cheats with some groupie.
where's your self respect Gabby? What dwade is doing is called emotional abuse. And she's subliminally letting the world know this whether she intended to or not. He's not ready for marriage. Especially with her, as a black actress she's known to be respected for her class and professionalism. But she starts dating a basketball player with money& fame and then she starts making choices that drastically change her image. People are starting to lose respect for her. Now she's just another black actress desperately trying to keep her man. When he's not really hers. He's only hers when he wants celebrity company, celebrity pussy and when the cameras are flashing.
What a lot of men are saying is that she's mature and they're happy she can take responsibility which is b.s cuz the least he could have done is use a condom, and he hasn't publicly taken any responsibility for any of it. Men on here saying "oh she's mature she understands that's why your all fat, broke porch monkeys you wouldn't understand" doesn't justify his actions at all. All that does is shows the world how like-minded men actually think. Gabrielle Union of all ppl deserves better. Right now she's settling. Is that what black men really feel black women deserve? A man who knocks up another woman while they're on a break. Flip the script and pretend it's the other way around. Imagine Gabby getting pregnant by another man cuz you couldn't find time in your extremely busy basketball schedule. Y'all would have BEEN called her a ho and said dueces.
D wade knew exactly what he was doing, he intentionally fucked up, cuz he didn't do it with some random stripper ho, he did with a girl he's been friends with for a long time. He specifically did it while they were on "break" and got the girl pregnant. This a NBA player he's been around he's not new to this. He wanted to find a way to make her pay for life for making him feel like he wasn't her first priority. He's like an angry kid.
And then I feel bad for her cuz her career isn't really going anywhere. She's making some pocket change doing some silly tv show, which doesn't compare to the movies she used to do. Then her very public and famous basketball player boyfriend/fiance knocks up a side piece. Now their saying that gabby is pregnant. There were RUMORS that he used to beat up his ex-wife so I USED to wonder and hope nothing happens to gabby cuz that would be tragic. If anything did happen I'd hope she had the courage and confidence to walk away if someone was mistreating her. Then he has the balls to publicly humiliate her and knock up another woman. Sad, sad, sad. So unfortunate.
To the dummy that said follow your heart, please, follow your brain not your heart. 1) that is no way to start off a marriage. If the first few years is usually the best, then the worst is coming. 2) there will be no trust. 3) he has no respect for himself or her by having unprotected sex. He could have gave her a std 4) she will forever be haunted by his infidelity every time this kid comes around. 5) I think she is desperate, not sure why she thinks she can't do better.
You all are not looking outside the box. Instead of her being accused of not being woman enough to embrace her body and carry a baby for 9 months, let's just get a seragant, and make it look like a jump-off, I applaud you all for falling for the jump-off story. Because... as a woman we all can deal with a jump-off there is sympathy in numbers. But as a woman it would be hard to have the world criticize you by not having time in your schedule to give the man you love a baby. This is the best cover-up story ever. I see them getting full custody of their own baby soon.
