The world (especially the females) have been so confused after hearing Gabrielle Union is openly supporting her man, D. Wade, even after news broke that he had a child with a woman during his "break" from Union.
In a recent interview, the actress spoke out and explained her side of the story to clear up any confusion about their relationship.
“It was because of distance and scheduling,” the “Being Mary Jane”
star said. “I finished filming the show, 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.”
However, Union said that during the summer she “reassessed priorities”
and ultimately decided that she wanted to make their relationship
work. Wade, who also has two sons from a previous marriage and is
raising his nephew as well, felt the same way.
“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,”
she said. “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.”
Now, the two make sure to be affectionate with each other all the
time. Union said that Wade never leaves the house without kissing her
goodbye and saying, “I love you,” and added that she compliments him
“I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he’s so
delicious,” she said. “Watching him get out of the shower never gets
old. Never. It’s not like he ever wonders what I’m thinking, but
usually he’s thinking, She needs a cold shower!’”
