Gabrielle Union’s thoughts on Dwyane Wade’s Ex, Siohvaughn

The subject of exactly how and when Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade hooked up has been the subject of rumors for quite some time. At one point, DWade’s ex wife, Siohvaughn even made some pretty lofty allegations during the divorce proceedings including claims that Gabby was allegedly using foul language and dressing inappropriately around the boys and also brought a suit against her (that was dismissed by the judge)

Gabby has decided to clear the air in an interview, check out a few excerpts.

On why she didn’t publicly defend her reputation against rumors she cheated with Dwyane while he was married

“The kids.  For the people that hire me, it’s a non issue.  But at the end of the day, Dwyane’s kids are going to be the ones who really suffer.  They’re 10 and 4 and a half.  They’re old enough to understand the mean things that strangers can say.”

On feeling bullied by her fans who believed she was “the other woman”

“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.”

On handling Siohvaughn’s lawsuits alleging Gabby as a homewrecker and detrimental to her kids

“I fought it.  My life is just too easy to track.  So, we were submitting plenty of proof for the times she said I was in Miami.  So, it was like, obviously you’re not telling the truth.  And then the courts dismissed the case.”

On her current relationship with Siovaughn

“I’ve never had one.  I wasn’t involved then-because I wasn’t involved with their marriage–and I don’t have one now.”

On contemplating breaking up with Dwyane because of the divorce turmoil

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 bottom line is these two appear happy. If there is an alternate version of events than what Gabby is presenting, that’s their karma to deal with. It’s amazing that people feel they are “owed” an explanation on how a relationship evolved.

    Great story. People work hard to develop a career for themselves, “fans” and other highly opinionated individuals should not be so quick to judge without knowing the facts. P.S. I love Gabby & D-Wade as a couple #KUDOS
