Relationship with Dwayne Wade explored

While the timeline of Dwayne and Aja’s encounter is not clear, in her interview, the reality star said that she had been friends with the NBA player for 10 years.

She revealed that back in 2013, before his marriage, Dwayne was having relationship problems with Gabrielle. According to the Basketball wives star, she and Dwayne found themselves single at the same time.

Sparks flew between them and they conceived a child, but Dwayne and Gabrielle patched things up soon after and he ended up proposing to her.

In her recent essay for Time magazine, Gabrielle, 48, addressed the matter and wrote: “In 2013, before we were married, Dwyane had a baby with another woman. It should go without saying that we were not in a good place at the time that child was conceived. But, we were doing much better when he finally told me about the pregnancy.”

“To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience,” the actress wrote.
