'I felt justified in committing adultery': Gabrielle Union reveals infidelity in first marriage

American actress Gabrielle Union has spoken openly about her first marriage to Chris Howard, an NFL player.

The Hollywood beauty, who is currently married to NBA player Dwyane Wade, admitted in an interview with the podcast "Armchair Expert" that she was not faithful in her marriage to Howard.

Gabrielle and Howard were married in 2001 but separated in 2006.

The 50-year-old mother of one claimed that her relationship with Howard was not going well while accusing the NFL player of being unfaithful as well as adding that she felt "entitled" to adultery.

She said, "In my first marriage, neither of us felt that marriage should get in the way of our dating," she said.

"Keeping up with what he was doing, like, 'Oh, so that's what you're doing? You're going to feel that.' And I felt entitled to that, too."

The actress said she believed it was her right to do what she liked since she was the one paying the bills in the relationship.

"I worked my ass off, and I felt like that's what was coming, the spoils of wealth," she said.

"Like my father before me, I thought that whoever had the most could do whatever the hell they wanted. I wish I had more guilt about some of these things.

"It was such a stupid relationship that should have never gotten out of the dating phase."

Gabrielle went on to explain that she chose infidelity because she was "horny for validation and certain guys who "like me and want me."

"In hindsight, yes, I desperately needed something from them that I couldn't give myself, and neither could my marriage, but I think I gave something for them, too," she added.

After separating from Howard, Gabrielle married 40-year-old Wade in 2014. The couple has their first daughter Kaavia, who is currently 4 years old.
