Actress Gabrielle Union has been banned from being seated in the front row at basketball games by her boyfriend, NBA star and Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade.
The actress confessed that her badgering of players went too far during her appearance Tuesday on Conan O’Brien’s late night show on TBS. She admitted that she heckles both sides during a game, as well as the referees. The actress also confessed to screaming ‘Airball’ whenever Wade misses a shot.
"I'm bad. A, I don't sit courtside, that got killed when I became as vocal," Union said.
She added that Wade told her that she would have to sit a few rows back because he could hear everything.
"I'm like dance mom. … I've become like Bobby Knight and like the Great Fettucini, it's bad. I scream like 'brick!' and 'air ball!'" she said.
Union and Wade have been dating since 2006.
Her movies include Bring It On (1999), The Brothers (2001) and The Honeymooners (2005). Her latest film, Think Like a Man, is in theaters now. She was previously married to former NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 until their divorce in 2006.
She is also set to play the lead in the upcoming BET show Being Mary Jane, in which she plays a talk show host looking for love.
