From MadameNoire.com: I’m sure Gabrielle Union is telling the truth and is not at all amused by the blows dealt to her career as a result of her relationship with Dwyane Wade. But it’s almost comical that Hollywood and the entertainment/acting arena of all industries would try to limit someone’s exposure because of their suspect relationship, but that’s what Gabrielle Union says happened to her.

This weekend, the actress spoke with IPower 92′s T.T Torrez during the Radio One Music Fest in Miami, and said this about how her career has been affected by her love life:

“It’s hard because, aside from loving him, I want to protect myself. I’ve built my life. I built my own brand. I built my career and my career took a hit from that madness because some people refuse to see the truth, even when it’s presented to them time and time again. I love him but at some point it’s about self preservation and I needed to protect myself and everything I built.”
