18 Celebrity Relationships That Started As Affairs
Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union
Dwayne was married to his longtime partner, Siohvaughn Funches with two kids when he allegedly started an affair with actress Gabrielle Union. Dwayne apparently held a meeting between Gabrielle and his two sons, where he introduced her as his new girlfriend and explained that “this is why your mom and I are going to divorce.” This led to a pretty messy split that included a custody battle, Siohvaughn calling Gabrielle a homewrecker, and her suing the actress for causing the kids “emotional distress.”
To add to the drama, Gabrielle and Dwayne briefly separated for a while, and during that time, the athlete had another affair with someone else and even had a child. But Gabrielle chose to forgive him. They continued their relationship and went on to have a romantic wedding.
