Those of you who don’t know much about actress Gabrielle Union’s love life, here’s something that would blow your mind. There had been rumors about Union that she was going to get married to a secret boyfriend, who was much younger than her. It’s not true!! Well… it’s partly true!! We are not trying to confuse you. What we are trying to say is that Union is not planning to get married to her alleged mystery boy because she is already married to him and he is three years younger than her. Surprised?
Here’s a few thing you should know about her and her husband, who you thought was her secret boyfriend. She is married to American professional basketball player, Dwyane Wade, aged 33. They started dating each other in 2009. The couple split in 2013 due to their career commitments. They later reconciled, shared rings in December 2013 and finally tied the knot on August 30, 2014 in Miami, Florida. Now, the couple are happy together and rocking their married life.
‘The Game’’ star believes that the reason behind their strong married life is the fact that she married Wade, not for money or fame, but for love. Wade is one of the most popular basketball players and is one of the highest paid athletes right now.
The beautiful actress said that she decided to have a pre-nuptial agreement before getting hitched to her husband. Union stated that both she and Wade are successful in their own field and her marriage to him was not intended for wealth, which is why the couple decided on a pre-nup.
'I have my own wagon and star,' said Union.
The actress also criticized celebs who hook up with someone just to become famous and swim in the pool of wealth.
'For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand,' she expressed her dissatisfaction.
'Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever.'
She added: 'I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means.'
As we mentioned before, Wade is one of the most successful player. But the Being Mary Jane fame claims that she was protecting her own brand and she didn’t have to hitch her wagon to his star to be successful. She has approximately 3 million and 4.7 million followers on Twitter and Instagram respectively and her net worth is $16 million.
'Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.'
It looks like the black beauty, who has appeared in several films, is very much in love with Wade himself rather than his success and wealth. We wish the beautiful pair a fruitful married life.
