Gabrielle Union

When Dwyane Wade announced that he’d fathered a child with another woman during his relationship with Gabrielle Union, it was she who picked up the pieces to mend their public persona — and who even took responsibility for their split and the “break baby” that came out of it.

[When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling,” she told Glamour. I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn’t take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed. Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. I’d always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family. Bottom line: If an issue’s a deal breaker, it’s a deal breaker. If your relationship isn’t something you’re willing to give up and you can compromise, do so.
