Dwyane Wade Clowned On For Flexing Porsche While Going 50/50 With Gabrielle Union
Former professional basketball player Dwyane Wade recently shared a clip showing off his Porsche. Social media users were quick to call out the athlete, whose wife recently revealed they split finances 50/50. Gabrielle Union shared in an interview that she struggles to feel financially secure, citing her fear of losing job opportunities. She explained that she fears having the "rug [being] pulled from under her," also claiming that if she loses a job, "somebody ain't gone eat." "Man's spoiling himself while his wife stressed about money," wrote one user alongside laughing emojis. Another adds, "Takes notes this [is what] 50/50 with ya wife can get ya." The comments section of the post also got heated among users, with several debates on whether Wade is in the right for flexing his wealth amidst his wife's claims.
Last week, Union elaborated on the comments she made during her appearance on the Bloomberg Originals series, Idea Generation. She followed up, claiming, "Every household is different and doing what's best for you and yours is the key." She also added, "And what some don't understand is that I'm 100% responsible for 3 other households and D has even more. The majority of those households are elderly ppl and minors."

"We both come from families that step up to help care for children or elderly relatives," Union also revealed. "So being able to be with someone who meets me half way and lightens my load gives me peace and support." She continued, explaining that it's her choice to split finances equally. "He's offered to cover me trust," she says, "but that's not my ministry nor brings me peace." "All that to say, I love how we recognize that there's billions of ways to exist." She added, "you just gotta find what's right for you that brings YOU peace. I found mine."
