Via Larry Brown Sports:

Dwyane Wade’s girlfriend Gabrielle Union may look sweet and innocent, but don’t let the looks fool you.

During an interview on “Conan,” Union, who is an actress, said Wade won’t let her sit courtside at his basketball games anymore because she is a vicious heckler.

Union admitted she becomes really into the games and that her heckling is not limited to the opposing team. Not only will she sometimes heckle the Heat, but she says she also goes pretty hard after the refs.

Union says she gave it pretty good to referee Dick Bavetta, telling him during a recent game, “blow your whistle and you get your Viagra!”

This woman is incredible. She should be available for hire as a professional heckler. And what is it about people close to Wade getting into trouble at games?

  • ignorant skank
  • She's not doing anything different than all the drunken idiots filling the seats. That neither makes her ignorant nor a skank. Skanks tend to be those women that can't keep their legs together and fail to wash between poundings. Just sayin'.
  • yes she does has a nice smile and is a gr8 actress,and who at home watching dosen't get on the ref'sand players of the team that u like.2 know y she is so admitt like she is,guess u would have 2know her?
  • I wouldn't think that type of behavior would come from her. Totally shocked by what I heard
  • It amazes me that people don't understand that there are women who are avid sports fans who cheer and jeer for their teams.Add in the fact that she's dating one of the players then her intensity is understandable. The real reason Wade doesn't want her there is because Miss Union has one of the most engaging smiles on earth. I'd bet that when he looks at her it throws him off his game.
  • jeering the other team is one thing. taking personal shots an a ref is something else. It shows the kind of character she has.

    I go to many baseball and football games and I have never taken to personal shots at the umps. Or even other players. Just because you're an advid sports fan doesn't mean you have to be obnoxious.
  • I saw this on Conan and I thought she was making it up so she had a story to tell on TV. However, if this is for real, she seems pretty obnoxious and rude. Whatever happened to just cheering for whoever you want to win and leaving personal attacks out of it. But it doesn't surprise me. These days, it's the bad apples that get the press.

    It makes me want to sit behind her and yell at her about my opinion of her as an actress and as a person. But I'd never stoop to her level............
  • *he says in a personal attacking way* lol
  • I am a 61 year old woman and I am the same way. Very vocal, it has to do with the excitement, not being rude or anything else. We just get into the game and hate mistakes by ref and/or players. I do not go to games have NBALP, nor do I invite people over to watch! Women are just like you guys when it comes to certain sports!
