Gabrielle Union doesn’t feel any remorse for cheating on her first husband, Media Take Out has learned. According to Gabrielle, “It was what it was.”
Gabrielle Union talked openly about her frequent past infidelities on the latest “Armchair Expert,” with Dax Shepard.
Gabrielle admitted to frequently cheating, and explained that she doesn’t feel any guilt for her infidelity during her marriage.
“I definitely was not getting Wife of the Year Awards,” Union said of her first marriage. “I had some focus issues, you know.” She was married to NFL running back Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006.
“In our first marriage, neither one of us felt like the marriage should get in the way of our dating,” Union explained. For her at the time, she says she was “battling her own sense of entitlement.”
Gabrielle suspected her husband of cheating – and started getting side d*** as revenge.
“I was like, Oh, that’s what you’re doing?” Gabrielle explained. In response, she’d hit back with, “You’re gonna feel this one.”
But not all of Gebrielle’s cheating was “revenge d***.” The gorgeous actress admitted that she also felt “entitled” to cheat because she was paying the bills and working hard in life.
“I felt that that’s what comes, the spoils of riches,” she said. “Like my dad before me, whoever has the most gets to do whatever the hell they want, is what I thought.”
According to Gabrielle, she was “horny for validation and having certain kinds of guys like me and want me. That made me feel like I was worthy and good and valuable and deserving.”
Gabrielle then turned the discussion to her relationship with current husband Dwyane Wade.
“We randomly came back around as more healed people and more open to understanding our complicity in some of the challenges that we created for ourselves,” she said.
“We are way easier to point the finger, you did this to me, you caused that, this person did this, and it’s like, okay, we’re grown,” Union added. “I’m super-grown at this– I’m 40+ at this point and it’s like, I don’t want to live like this. None of this feels good and it’s exhausting and I want a love that feels like freedom.”
She didn’t explain what “freedom” was, exactly.
“Now we’re both free and we are free to choose ourselves and free to choose each other every day, which is a completely different sentiment,” she told Shepard.
