Gabrielle Union Says Dwyane Wade Appreciates Her Independence
Last night, Gabrielle Union wasn’t able to make it to husband Dwyane Wade’s Miami Heat game. As much as she likes to be courtside to cheer on him and his team, she loves that her other half understands her need to have her own life, too. “He appreciates my independence, and my high credit score, and the fact that if I want a Chanel bag, I’m not asking for his Amex; I’ve got my own,” she says, letting out a loud laugh. If there’s one thing you need to know about Gabrielle Union, it’s that she’s a self-made woman—always has been, always will be.
And though she’s been a Hollywood star for a while now, she has never forgotten how to hustle. On a break from filming her hit BET show, Being Mary Jane, and still on a creative high from January’s Sundance Film Festival—where her movie The Birth of a Nation was sold for $17.5 million, the largest deal ever made at the festival—Union is chilling in jogging pants and a Bob Marley T-shirt, taking a much-needed, and seldom had, moment to relax.
