It looks like Gabrielle Union has finally let the smoke clear and decided to speak out about the controversy between her and her new boo Miami Heat Dwayne Wade’s ex wife. Gabrielle caught up with IPower 92′s T.T Torrez during Radio One Music Fest in Miami and in a quick interview she gave her insight on how she was able to resolve the issues and stay in love and sane while also protecting her career and family. Check out what she had to say.
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 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 effect 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 them first. 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.
