Gabrielle Union graces the cover of the latest edition of Essence Magazine. The actress opens up about gossip blogs and for the first time openly talks about her relationship with basketball player Dwayne Wade:

“The only marriage that I’ve ever been a part of destroying is my own, and it’s not my place to talk about anybody else’s…”

With a new sci-fi gig and a turn as a producer in the works, as well as finding a new love, the Hollywood starlet is busy reinventing her brand and enjoying the ride. But, as she tells ESSENCE in the article Living My Life, it’s the recent gossip about her love life from bloggers-claiming that she’s done everything from given birth to partying with a different man on her arm each night-that hurts the most. The actress says she’s not backing down, she is fighting back.
