Two years ago, my boyfriend at the time and I were watching the NBA finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder. Dwayne Wade's eyes pierced through the television screen as he stood at the foul line. They carried a smoldering yet dense look, like he didn't have a thought running through that gorgeous head of his. Without thinking I blurted, "he's a ho." My ex's eyes widened. He tried for about a good fifteen minutes to get me to provide some rationale behind my comment. All I could come up with was, "I don't know. He's really good looking and his eyes...I just know it. Trust me." Who would have known that my crazy, late night murmurings would have come to fruition.
If you haven't heard the news yet, Dwayne Wade fathered a child outside of his relationship with now fiance Gabrielle Union. Sources say that the child was conceived while Wade and Union were on a "break". Riiiiiggggghhhhttttttt....
Ibtimes reports Union knew about the love child prior to Wade's proposal. While she may have forgiven his indiscretion, let's take a step back here. Okay, what is this "we're on a break so I can do whatever I want" business? It seems to me that the whole "break" ideology is a cop out. It's a way for people (primarily men) to "take it to the hole" with whoever they want while keeping one foot in the door of their previous relationships. I don't buy it. If two people truly need time to find themselves and figure out if they want to be together, how is screwing another person helping?
And for goodness sake D. Wade, WRAP IT UP! For someone with millions, he doesn't seem to have much sense. One night of passion will affect him and his family for the rest of their lives. Hopefully they can all act like adults so as not to negatively impact the children. However, there are rumors floating around that she wrote a disrespectful open letter to Union earlier in the year (with poor grammar might I add...tsk tsk).
This will be marriage number two for both Wade and Union. Rumors of Wade cheating on his ex-wife with Union have resurfaced as a result of his recent indiscretion. The details surrounding that claim are unclear. It is public knowledge that his ex-wife sued Union for "Alienation of Affection", claiming that they were having an affair while the two were still married. Newsflash: past behaviors have a tendency to be repeated. If he did it to her, he'll do it to you. Oh wait...he kind of already did *slinks away quietly*
All in all, this story is no different than what we as women see and hear about everyday. The difference is these two are famous. While Union has decided to stand by her man, I can't help but wonder how the two can plan a wedding in he midst of all of this. I know that it's possible, but my spidey senses tell me that this is a recipe for disaster. That woman and child will be a constant reminder of his infidelity. I can't imagine how painful that would be. Of course, that's just my opinion.
To the ladies in this situation, keep it classy. Wade, keep it in your pants.
