Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have formed one of pop culture’s biggest power couples for several years now.
However, the Hollywood actress recently had a telling admission on her relationship with the former NBA star.
Back in 2013, Wade fathered a child with another woman. Union admitted in a press tour for her book that she would not stay with him if that happened today.
“Who I am, the healing that I’ve fought for, the peace that I have fought for, I wouldn’t. I just wouldn’t,” Union said (per Brad Sullivan of Heat Nation). “That’s not what happened, but there is wisdom from perspective and time and therapy and personal evolution and accountability that changes things.”
“One of the things I learned about giving advice is don’t take advice from anyone doing something about anything that they haven’t succeeded at. So if you’re gonna ask me, a divorced woman who’s had a gang of relationship challenges about what you should do in a relationship, you’ve already failed. I could give you my coulda, woulda, shoulda, but at the end of the day, I didn’t. So be careful when and who you ask for advice about what to do in the moment.”
You have to respect the honesty.

Wade and Union were married in 2014.
While the happy couple might seem perfect from the outside, everyone has their own issues.
