Gabrielle Union Would Like You To Know She Did Not Steal Dwyane Wade From His Ex-Wife

"Home wrecker. Gold digger. Trifling."

That's how next week's Jet cover story on actress Gabrielle Union starts, but she would like to let you know, for the first time publicly, that she is not any of those things. She's been the target of rumors and online scuffles ever since she struck up a relationship with Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade shortly after he filed for divorce from ex-wife Siohvaughn.

"I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt," Union tells the magazine. "Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity. And I kept feeling like the truth would come out. The problem is, when it did, nobody cared. What I discovered on social media is that people don't read the entire story."

Wade filed for divorce from Siohvaughn in late 2007, and reportedly meet Union shortly after in 2008. By 2009 rumors of a full-on relationship were in the air, but the pair didn't go public with the relationship until 2010 just days before Wade's divorce became official. Wade's divorce was a pretty protracted affair that involved Siohvaughn dragging Union into the custody case, and eventually turning herself into police on charges of contempt of court.

Union denies any charges made against her by Siohvaughn's attorneys.

"My life is just too easy to track," Union says. "We were submitting plenty of proof for the times she said I was in Miami. So, it was like, obviously you're not telling the truth. And then the courts dismissed the case."

So there we have it. Gabrielle Union did not steal Dwyane Wade. So let's just move past that and concentrate on how adorable they are and how they probably know a love that us mere mortals will never truly understand.
