Actress Gabrielle Union speaks out for the first time on Dwayane Wade’s ex-wife and the cheating rumors in Jet Magazine.

In her cover story, Crazy Messy Love, she expresses why she didn’t speak publicly on the home-wrecking rumors and lawsuit for the sake of the kids. She took the high road in the public eye and fought the legal battle privately. Read a few excerpts below from the issue that will be released next week.

On why she didn’t defend the rumors she cheated with Dwyane while he was married:

The kids.  For the people that hire me, it’s a non issue.  But at the end of the day, Dwyane’s kids are going to be the ones who really suffer.  They’re 10 and 4 and a half.  They’re old enough to understand the mean things that strangers can say.

On being labeled “the other woman”

I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt.  Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity.  And I kept feeling like the truth would come out.  The problem is, when it did, nobody cared.  What I discovered on social media is that people don’t read the entire story.

On handling Siohvaughn’s lawsuits alleging Gabby as a home-wrecker:

I fought it.  My life is just too easy to track.  So, we were submitting plenty of proof for the times she said I was in Miami.  So, it was like, obviously you’re not telling the truth. And then the courts dismissed the case.

On her current relationship with Siovaughn

I’ve never had one.  I wasn’t involved then-because I wasn’t involved with their marriage–and I don’t have one now.

On contemplating breaking up with Dwyane because of the divorce:

I did a lot of talking with girlfriends and sorting through my feelings about the madness.  This kind of love is a gift.  It’s so consistent.  There’s no way that I would trade it for people who refuse to simply acknowledge the truth.
