Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union is opening up about her first marriage to NFL player Chris Howard. The Hollywood stars, who is currently married to NBA star Dwyane Wade, admitted on Monday in a podcast interview that she was not faithful in her marriage to Howard and claimed he wasn’t either.
In our first marriage, neither one of us felt like the marriage should get in the way of our dating,” Union told host Dax Shepard. “A part of it was keeping up with his activities and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s what you’re doing? Oh, you’re gonna feel this one.
Gabrielle and Howard were married in 2001, however, the couples parted ways in 2006.
Union went on to explain how, at the time, she felt justified in her actions, stating;
I just felt entitled to it, as well. I was paying all the bills, I was working my a** off and I felt like that’s what comes, the spoils of riches.
The 50 year-old mother of one went further, saying
Like my dad before me, whoever has the most gets to do whatever the hell they want is what I thought. I wish I had more guilt for some of that.
It was such a stupid relationship that should have never got out of the dating phase.
Gabrielle further stated her decision to opt for infidelity was because she was “horny for validation and having certain kinds of guys who “like me and want me.”
In hindsight, yes, I absolutely needed something from them that I was not providing for myself, and neither was my marriage, but I think I provided something for them too.
After parting ways with Howard, Gabrielle got married to 40 year old Wade in 2014. The couple’s welcome their first daughter Kaavia, who is currently 4-year-old.
