‘I felt entitled to cheat’ — Gabrielle Union speaks on first marriage

Gabrielle Union, the American actress, opened up about her first marriage to NFL player Chris Howard.

In an interview with the ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast, the Hollywood star, who is currently married to NBA star Dwyane Wade, admitted that she was not faithful in her marriage to Howard.

Gabrielle got married to Howard in 2001. The duo, however, broke up in 2006.

The movie star said her love affair with Howard was not working properly while accusing the NFL star of infidelity as well.

The New York Times bestselling author also said she “felt entitled” to infidelity during the marriage.

“In my first marriage, neither one of us felt like the marriage should get in the way of our dating,” the 50-year-old said.

“So, keeping up with his activities, like, ‘Oh, that’s what you’re doing? You’re going to feel this one.’ And I just felt entitled to it as well.”

The actress said she believed it was her right to do what pleases her since she was the one footing the bills in the relationship.

“I was working my a** off, and I felt like that’s what comes, the spoils of riches,” she said.

“Like my dad before me, whoever has the most gets to do whatever the hell they want is what I thought. I wish I had more guilt for some of that.

“It was such a stupid relationship that should have never got out of the dating phase.”

The Nebraska-born movie star said her decision to opt for infidelity was because she was “horny for validation and having certain kinds of guys like me and want me”.

“In hindsight, yes, I absolutely needed something from them that I was not providing for myself, and neither was my marriage, but I think I provided something for them too,” she added.

Following her split from Howard, Gabrielle went on to marry Wade, 40, in 2014. The pair welcomed daughter Kaavia, 4, via surrogate in 2018.
