All basketball fans alike were given something to cheer about on Nov. 26 when it was announced that the NBA lockout was officially over. From concession stand employees to players, as of Dec. 25, everyone will have their jobs back. And no one is happier to see Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade hit the court than his longtime girlfriend, Gabrielle Union. In her words, “Somebody has got to pay the bills!”
Spending her time in between Los Angeles and Miami, who began dating Wade in 2008, Union says the Heat player isn’t the only reason she calls the 305 her second home. Having a “love affair” since filming Bad Boys II, she was in town this week to hit Art Basel and support local artists, like Miguel Paredes, which is where we caught up with her to have a quick chat.
