I love Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union as a celebrity couple just as much as the next chick scanning over the monthly ‘Girl, You Better Suck That Meat From The Back To Keep Your Black Man’ article in Essence at the checkout line but this staged photo op is no more realistic as K. Michelle’s latest weave closure.
Photographers were on hand as the smiling duo frolicked around the beach in Malibu, California on Saturday. The Miami Heat star, 31, recently admitted that the couple took a break during the NBA Finals. How convenient.
“I’m going to tell you something personal,” D. Wade said when Jay Leno asked him about his relationship with his 40-year-old girlfriend on the ‘Tonight Show’ last week.
“Celebrity relationships is very hard. This was a big year for us in our relationship from the standpoint of she was shooting her show ‘Being Mary Jane.’ I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship. We kind of took a step back. We supported each other, but we took a step back for a little while. At the end of the day, we came back together and said, ‘Listen, we want to continue this. We want to try to continue to get better each day.’ She’s been with me and I’ve been with her all summer long. We’re going strong now.”
