Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have sold their sprawling Sherman Oaks property for $ 5.7million, after slashing the asking price by half-a-million in January.

The five-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion was listed for $ 6.2million last March, just days before the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization

After more than a year on the market without any luck, the couple lowered the price to $ 5.995 million, which is $ 295,000 less than they paid for the 8,650-square-foot home in 2018.

Basketball player Dwyane is father to four children – Zaya, 12, and Zaire, 18, with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, as well as six-year-old Xavier with Aja Metoyer, and two-year-old Kaavia with Gabrielle. 

The mansion is of contemporary design and features an elaborate metal staircase which connects three levels, wrap around balconies and multiple French doors, which flood it with light.

Situated on a private road on a gated estate, the 8,500-square-foot Mediterranean-style property has dark wooden floors, French doors, a home theater and a temperature-controlled wine room.

Former America’s Got Talent judge Gabrielle, 49, and 39-year-old retired NBA star Dwyane bought the property for $ 6million in 2018.

At the time, the couple had recently supported Dwyane’s daughter Zaya in her decision to come out publicly as transgender, covering the topic in his documentary, D. Wade: Life Unexpected. 

Speaking on Good Morning America, Dwyane explained: ‘I struggled on how much I wanted to talk about it in the doc. I actually didn’t talk about it a lot, but I knew if I put it in the doc at all, it would be a big conversation.

‘We struggled with what people would say about a 12 year old making a decision about her life. But we also know our child.

‘We’ve been through so many different things that other people and other families go through and they thank us for speaking out on it.

‘That’s what we’re trying to do. We know there are other families out there dealing with their kid finding themselves and learning who they are.’

He said Zaya had come to him first.

‘Zaya, early on, knew two things: She knew straight and she knew gay.

‘But Zaya started doing more research. She is the one who sat down with us, as a family, and said, ‘Hey, I don’t think I’m gay.’ She went down a list and said, ‘This is how I identify myself. This is my gender identity. I identity myself as a young lady. I identify as straight trans because I like boys.’

‘It was a process for us to sit down with our daughter and find out who she is and what she likes and not put something on her because, as parents, we put our hopes and we put our fears on our kids.

‘With Zaya, we decided to listen to her and she’s leading us on this journey.’ 

The sports star recently said he’s proud of his wife – whom he married in 2014 – as he says the star works hard to be an independent woman. 

He told People magazine: ‘She is her own boss and has her own career, her own bank account and all that. [She] has her own life and she allows me to live my life and be me.

‘We both work very hard for our families and we love that about each other. We love that we grind, we go for it, we work, but we still find time for our family and find time to spend time together and love each other.’

Earlier this week, the L.A.’s Finest star told Gwyneth Paltrow on a recent episode of The Goop Podcast that her children thought she ‘should not’ work anymore because of how much money her husband was bringing in.  

‘They had gotten into this stage as pre-teens where they just wanted us to be like other families,’ Gabrielle explained. ‘They had looked up how much their dad made and they thought that I should not work — I should just be at home like the other moms of their friends.’

She added that she thought the kids got a sense of ‘relief’ after she and Dwyane got married in 2014, after four years of dating, though they still wanted the traditional family dynamics they had seen from some of their friends’ families.

Gabrielle had to explain to her children that women can have goals and passions beyond their families.

‘Sometimes, women want to work and have a career and just do other things and this is what makes me who I am,’ she told them. ‘It doesn’t mean I love you any less or I don’t want the job or I don’t love being your stepmother.’

She added: ‘I will do my best to be here for all of the things that you want me to be here [for] while at the same time, making sure that space for mom or dad is there. It is the golden seat of honor, always. And we just move that way.’

The Bring It On Star married Wade, 39, in 2014.
