Actress Gabrielle Union didn't waste any time rebounding from her old flame, Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat. I told you last week that the star and her longtime boyfriend split up. Gabby was noticeably absent from game 6 of the 2011 NBA Finals in Miami -- and now we know why!
Friends and fans of Union, 38, inundated my email Inbox with denials and excuses for her -- the main excuse being that she was out of the state making a movie -- as if planes don't fly on Sundays.
Has the movie wrapped already?
Gabby was seen out shopping with her new man in the "Meatpacking district" of New York City yesterday. The unidentified man seems to be a gentleman. He was very attentive to her, carrying her bags, opening doors for her and such. These are things you rarely see men do for women nowadays. Yes, he is a little on the geeky side. But it makes perfect sense. When you're Gabrielle Union -- a woman who requires a lot of attention -- it's hard to date a man who gets more attention than you do. Gabby's new dude is not flashy (get it?).
More on this story as it develops. Remember where you read it first!
