Gabrielle Union has insisted that she did not steal boyfriend Dwyane Wade from his former wife Siohvaughn Funches.

The actress, who has been involved with NBA star Wade since 2009, was sued by Funches that same year on the basis that the couple's relationship caused her two sons "emotional distress", though the case was later dismissed.

While Union has remained quiet on allegations that she is a "homewrecker" who destroyed Wade's marriage to Funches, she has since spoken out on her romance in a new interview with JET.

"I think people mistook me taking the high road as an admission of guilt," Union recalled.

"Dwyane and I made a decision very early to not react to the negativity. And I kept feeling like 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."

Union went on to say that it was her close friends that she relied on for support during the height of her distress, adding: "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."

Wade's marriage to Funches was dissolved in June 2010.
