Gabrielle Union On How D Wade’s Ex-Wife Drama Affected Her Career
My mother use to say leave well enough alone, and that’s exactly what Gabrielle Union should have done when asked about D Wade’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches. During an interview with TT Torrez at the Radio One Music Festival in Miami, Torrez asked Gabrielle Union about the drama and the negativity surrounding D Wade and his ex-wife. Of course Gabrielle Union answered:
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 and I needed to protect myself and everything I built.
I wonder what truth did people fail to see. I don’t care how crazy Siohvaughn Funches may come across, D Wade chose to marry her and have two kids with her. Before the couple was officially divorced, he was in a relationship with Gabrielle Union. I am sure the story is more complicated than that behind the scenes, but publicly it looked like a love triangle, even though Dwyane separated from his wife back in 2007. Anyway there’s more from the interview…
I pay for my family. I pay for my mommy and my daddy and my sisters and her family. ‘D’ doesn’t write those checks, I do, so when something is starting to affect the way I make a living, ‘no no no baby,’ let me figure out a way for me to protect our home that me and Dwyane have with the kids.
You have to put their love of their mom, their love of peace of mind and love of consistency first, and then I have to make sure I can still feed my own family. Luckily, by taking the high road and not engaging in the back and forth craziness, I was able to do both. Luckily, by doing the right thing and putting the children first, it worked out that I was able to save myself.
It didn’t help that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade were dodging cameras to protect their images and denying rumors publicly. The day the divorce was finalized they hit the red carpet as a couple. If there was nothing wrong or nothing to hide, then why hide it? I guess they did it to protect everyone involved. I think the best answer in this interview would have been no answer. Rehashing this nonsense can’t be good for anyone at this point. Not sure why it took Dwyane Wade’s divorce years to finalize, but he is single now and that’s all that matters. He can date whomever he wants. He was separated from his wife since 2007. So let’s all just move on for the sake of the kids and the drama.
