The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress spoke out about her relationship with her fiancé, Dwyane Wade, for the first time in an interview since news broke he fathered a child with an ex while they were broken up. Gabrielle admitted she more career-focused than relationship-driven, and now she wants to focus on their family.
Gabrielle Union revealed in a new interview that her brief split with now fiancé Dwyane Wade came at a time when she was prioritizing her acting career over their relationship. During their split, Dwyane had a baby with his ex, Aja Metoyer, and now the possibly pregnant Gabrielle confessed she only blames herself for putting a strain on their love.

Gabrielle identified that the “original issue” of her brief split with Dwyane was she was putting her career first, she told Glamour.
“[When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling,” Gabrielle, 41, told Glamour. “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.”
“Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. 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,” Gabrielle admitted. “Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family.”
Gabi accepted Dwyane and Aya’s son, Xavier Zachariah Wade, now 1 month old, and seems happier than ever in her relationship.
