Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade

Actress Gabrielle Union, 40, and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, 31, spent the day staging a photo op for photographers on the beach in Malibu, California on Saturday. The photo op was necessary after Wade spilled the beans that he and Gabby took a break from each other this summer.

Wade, who reportedly cheated on Gabby with a NBA groupie during the 2013 NBA playoffs, placed the blame on Gabby.

“Celebrity relationships are very hard, and, for us, this was a big year for us in our relationship from the stand point of she was shooting her show Being Mary Jane, [she was] gone most of the year," Wade told Jay Leno last week.

Wade added: "I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship. So we kind of took a step back for a little while. But at the end of the day we came back together and said we want to continue this, and she’s been with me all summer long, and we’re going strong now.“

To prove to the blogs that she is still very much in control, Gabby called the paparazzi to arrange a photo shoot.

Gabby -- to whom image is everything -- took over the man's role by pulling Wade close to her and kissing him as the photog snapped away.

But once again, Wade's body language betrayed the real story.

On Friday night the couple attended a pre-Emmy Awards party in Los Angeles.

Gabby has a slew of movie projects to keep her busy, including the sequel Think Like a Man Too and Finally Famous, both scheduled for release in early 2014. And her TV series Being Mary Jane will premiere on BET in January 2014.

      I looked at the pictures first and was thinking was this a photo shoot :lol: But then I read :huh:
      Regardless both of their bodies :thumbsup: I think that they are compatible and want it to work. It just depends on ultimately what they want in the way of kids. If she wants none they might be okay. If he wants some and she doesn't :shrugs:

      She just looks so much more interested in him than he does her.
      Maybe I'm in the minority but I don't like them as a couple, maybe because I don't like them individually .

      This explains why she was seen dressing like old country bumpkin Gabby for a minute there. This nigra must me styling her or paying for someone to do it. I guess if he ain't around she said to hell with it.

      Sounds like a normal, working, adult relationship. Sometimes you have to step back & be grown about the situation. Everyday in a relationship won't be roses!

    • Brownskin Cutie (Carrington’s E-boo)

      @Donte, her name is Nicole Beharie(sp). That movie American Violet was very underrated.

      @ Bird. So you think DWade took her clothing and toe budget :hahaha: She might have also been a little down. That could have contributed.

      But overall there is nothing wrong with taking a moment to reassess if you are not married. Taking a break doesn’t work when you are married. You gotta work that ish out yo :nono: Best to do it before.

      I bet he was getting it in :hump: while they were split up. If you thought he was creeping before they split he probably was like
