Gabrielle Union Speaks On Dwyane Wade's Ex-Wife Siohvaughn...And Why She Kept Quiet About Homewrecker Rumors
Think Like A Man star Gabrielle Union is revealing for the first time her relationship with her boyfriend Dwyane Wade's ex-wife Siohvaughn...and why Gabby herself chose to keep quiet about those homewrecker rumors (but still fought the court battles against Sioh privately).
We've got the first glimpse into Gabby's upcoming JET magazine cover story about Sioh's lawsuits and Gabby's current relationship with her...
In the upcoming April 16th edition of JET Magazine, Ms. Union maintains that she's still every bit the girl next door she used to be. Despite the messy divorce her Miami Heat star boyfriend, Dwyane Wade, just tackled...with Gabby getting dragged into the mix as well. Siohvaughn sued Gabby for being an alleged homewrecker and for allegedly being detrimental to Dwyane & Sioh's 2 sons' well being. Sioh claimed that around the boys, Gabby allegedly used foul language and dressed inappropriately.
Gabby reveals for the first time, in a story title "Crazy Messy Love," that she didn't rebut the homewrecking rumors and lawsuit for the sake of the kids. And that she could related to Siovaughn's crazy antics since Gabby was "that" girl who attacked her own ex-husband's new girlfriend as well.
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.
