UPDATE 09/03/2014: In what is being described by many as one of the social events of Labor Day Weekend 2014, we can now officially call Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade's wife.
The star studded event included the usual family and friends, and the less usual celebrities, teammates, and former teammates including Ray Alen, Chris Bosh, John Legend, Carmelo Anthony, Ludacris, Shane Battier and LeBron.
Beyond that - you won't hear or see much about the affair at the Chateau Artisan in Miami. All guests were forced to sign confidentiality agreements and the use of cell phones in any capacity was expressly banned.
I know it was a big deal,... but seriously - who doesn't want to check Twitter during long and boring ass ceremonies? Bad form DWade.
12/25/2013: Dwyane Wade's girlfriend Gabrielle Union, can no longer be referred to as his girlfriend. After a recent turn of events, the proper title would be Dwyane Wade's fiancee Gabrielle Union.
Wade and Union got engaged just a few days before Christmas and took to Instagram and Twitter to announce the news. Wade dropped a massive ring on Union, who recently showed up at the Heat-Lakers Christmas day game with security in tow. With Siovaughn Wade's unpredictable-ness, I suppose those two bodyguards are a smart investment anytime in public, regardless of a 6 figure ring or not.
No word on when the couple will be getting married, but we'll be sure to keep you posted when we know.
Dwyane Wade's girlfriend Gabrielle Union is one heck of a way to get over an ex wife. The two have been rumored to be together since DWade and his ex-wife Siovaughn split up. They officially declared their relationship in July, 2010 when attending the comedy festival at Zo’s Annual Summer Groove together.
As outlined in the post we linked to above, but bears repeating, Gabrielle is currently being sued for $50K by DWade's ex-wife claiming that "Dwyane and Gabrielle's overt and explicit sexual behavior has brought significant emotional distress against Siovaughn and Dwyane's two children." The suit came during the throes of a nasty divorce proceeding where Dwyane was accused of passing an STD to Siovaughn (later revealed to have been passed from Siovaughn's new post marriage boyfriend), hiding money from her, and of course, making their children's hair fall out. Umm. Yup.
According to court documents, the suit claims that the overt sexual behaviors more or less boil down to Gabrielle giving Dwyane a kiss. Again according to court documents, these heinous actions have caused Dwyane's 8 year old to go through significant emotional distress and anxiety, and experience a pattern of hair loss.
