On why she didn’t publicly defend her reputation against rumors she cheated with Dwyane while he was married:
“The kids. For the people that hire me, it’s a non issue. But at the end of the day, Dwyane’s kids are going to be the ones who really suffer. They’re 10 and 4 and a half. They’re old enough to understand the mean things that strangers can say.”
On feeling bullied by her fans who believed she was “the other woman”:
“I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt. Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity. And I kept feeling liek the truth would come out. The problem is, when it did, nobody cared. What I discovered on social media is that people don’t read the entire story.”
On handling Siohvaughn’s lawsuits alleging Gabby as a homewrecker and detrimental to her kids:
“I fought it. My life is just too easy to track. So, we were submitting plenty of proof for the times she said I was in Miami. So, it was like, obviously you’re not telling the truth. And then the courts dismissed the case.”
On her current relationship with Siovaughn:
I’ve never had one. I wasn’t involved then-because I wasn’t involved with their marriage–and I don’t have one now.
On contemplating breaking up with Dwyane because of the divorce turmoil:
I did a lot of talking with girlfriends and sorting through my feelings about the madness. This kind of love is a gift. It’s so consistent. There’s no way that I would trade it for people who refuse to simply acknowledge the truth.
