Gabrielle Union’s recent admission that she felt entitled to cheat on her first husband infuriated fans. Chris Howard who is a former NFL player was her husband for five years. Gabrielle is not backing down in the face of criticism and has some advice for people who are condemning her recent words regarding infidelity.

The Bring It On star told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday that, “if you’re gonna get your panties in a twist about something I’ve been talking about since 2005 — in not one but two New York Times best-selling books — at least listen to the whole thing.” Her comments came after her appearance on the Armchair Expert podcast sparked a barrage of criticism from keyboard warriors. “Just so you know where your anger actually is,” she went on rolling her eyes.

Union suggested that “people really felt anger that a woman would dare be just as dysfunctional as a man” referring to her own description of her “dysfunctional” past union. During an appearance on Dax Shepherd’s podcast on January 2, the actress stated that she was “paying all the bills” when married to former NFL player Howard from 2001 until 2006.

“I was working my ass off, and I felt like that’s what comes [with it],” she admitted, calling infidelity “the spoils of riches.” Union accused Howard of infidelity as well, claiming that neither of them believed their marriage “should get in the way of our dating.” The author of ‘We’re Going to Need More Wine’ went so far as to suggest her cheating phase began in part to “keep up” with her then-husband’s activities.

“I was like, ‘Oh, that’s what you’re doing? Oh, you’re gonna feel this one,’” she recalled before calling the relationship “stupid.” Shen then went on to say that “it should have never gotten out of the dating phase,” adding that the pair had “not one thing in common — no morals, no values, no scruples.” Union discovered love with former basketball star Dwyane Wade after her divorce from the retired athlete.

The couple married in 2014 and welcomed their daughter Kaavia through surrogacy in 2018. Let’s see how much hatred she receives in response to her latest comments aimed at her critics. Keep an eye on Thirsty for the most latest updates.
