I've actually been told, "Gabrielle, you're absolutely perfect for the role, but the role is a girl who's most popular in school". I've been to the point where I brought in my yearbook. Meanwhile, Mr Wade married his childhood sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches, in 2002 and they split in 2007, but their divorce wasn't finalised until 2010.
Maybe it's cuz she's from the Bay, maybe it's just who she is or maybe it's her amazing parents…
Wade, 31, claims he fathered his son with a groupie, Aja Metoyer, while he was on a break from fiancée Gabrielle Union.
Among her notable roles is as a cheerleader opposite Kirsten Dunst in the 2000 film Bring It On and as Syd in the blockbuster Bad Boys II.
She is currently the star of the drama series, Being Mary Jane.
Her breakthrough role was in the 2000 teen comedy film Bring It On, after which she was female lead in the short-lived CBS medical drama series City of Angels later that year.
