“So its only right i put Dwayne Wade on blast. First and foremost i’d like to thank ***** Wade, his cousin for booking my numerous of flights.
Ohh yea, hi Ms. Union. Good too see you stuck around and have a few more pieces of clothing inside of his house. The kitchen looks great by the way. I love the new counter tops. I would also like to thank Rich, the chef for his amazing breakfast. His cookies are the best.
And last but not least I’d like to thank Dwayne for always making me feel comfortable on your side of the bed. Hiding pictures in your drawer. You know the night stand next to your side of the bed, the one with the two drawers. Think the picture is the one with you and Sanaa Lathan in it.
Also Gabrielle you are a little to old to be making Valentines day Photo albums. Leave that to the young girls your man cheats on you with. Dont believe me, i took a picture of the picture.”

The following was Gabrielle Union’s response on twitter:
I was quite impressed with her response as Union has been through a lot in her relationship with Dwayne Wade. When the two initially started dating, Wade was still married to ex-wife and mother of his children Siohvaughn Funches. In 2011, Wade’s wife sued Union for intentional infliction of emotional distress, alleging that Union and Wade engaged in extreme and outrageous conduct that they knew or should have known would have an adverse emotional effect on Wade’s minor sons. Funches claimed that this conduct caused her and Wade’s oldest son extreme stress and anxiety which led to nervous habits, headaches, and hair loss. The court eventually dismissed these claims as frivolous and unfounded.
Divorce can be an extremely emotional and heart breaking process. But when people start playing games in order to hurt each other, it makes you wonder if it’s actually a legal process or a war. Where a divorce is peaceful, a man can almost always be guaranteed a war should he openly begin a relationship with another woman. I don’t know what it is about seeing an ex-lover happy but it sure does seem to drive women all around the world crazy.
It seems that whenever a man in the spotlight appears to be happy, an ex jumps out of the woodwork, attempting to make the new woman look like a man thieving hussy. Most of the time the ex just ends up ridiculing herself and coming off as plain old bitter. They take to the news openly chastising these men. Some are more cowardly, secretly sending private information and pictures to bloggers who claim they obtained the information from an “anonymous but reliable source.” If he has moved on, why don’t you? Is it a cry for pity? Or is it an attempt to ruin the man or the new woman’s reputation?
Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz
Recently, Don Jazzy owned Mavin Record’s First Lady Tiwa Savage was proposed to by her long time boyfriend and manager, Tee Billz. In the middle of her birthday celebration at Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos, Nigeria, Tiwa’s long time bobo knelt before a room of celebrities and asked Savage to marry him. Although many people have insinuated that the two were secretly engaged long before the open proposal, the video below shows a surprised Savage rushing into her boyfriend’s arms where he knelt. If the rumors are true then Tiwa gets my vote for an Oscar this year.
It seemed that all was well in Savage land. Everyone was so happy for her; everyone except Tee Billz’s baby momma. There has been talk for the longest time about the complexity of Tee Billz’s relationship status and some clarity was recently delivered via Stella Dimokorkosus’s blog.
It would appear that Tee Billz’s baby momma has leaked personal pictures of herself and the children that she shares with Tee Billz, claiming that Billz used her and squatted with her in the US before leaving her for the greener shores of Nigeria (Naija). I am not sure what these pictures or these statements are supposed to mean. Did she really do this? If she didn’t, where did such personal pictures come from? Is this a jab at Tee Billz or a jab at Tiwa Savage because it sure looks like a jab to me. So in order to make this woman happy all of Tiwa’s fans should pull out the pitch forks and start a Mavin CD bonfire?
What does a celebrity do when faced with this kind of situation?
If you are the scorned lover or ex, it is better to just shut up. I know it hurts, we all do. Watching your ex happy with someone else makes you wonder what it was about you that just did not work. But the media is not the best place to voice your personal opinions. These gossip websites and bloggers do not care about your feelings. You end up making a spectacle of yourself, giving people fresh gist to spread about you.
Remember, unlike other people your life is lived in the spotlight and fans are not the ones to forget events or information that can be considered scandalous.
If you are the new lover, the same advice applies to you. Although I did like Gabrielle Union’s response, it can be interpreted as somewhat childish. I preferred Tiwa Savage’s response of silence. Sometime silence truly is the best answer for a fool.
