If you don’t know the backstory by now, let’s get you up to speed.

Then-Miami Heat player D-Wade cheated on Gabrielle Union with Aja Metoyer, had a baby as a result, but to save face, Wade and Union told the world it happened when they were on a break. They are now married.

During a recent interview with BOSSIP, Aja Metoyer, who is starring on Basketball Wives, explained why her child is not just a break-baby.  She also talked about the deal she signed with the show, making it impossible for her to say Dwyane Wade’s name in public EVER AGAIN.

“My son’s not a break baby, I’m not a side chick or a homewrecker,” said Aja. “I would love for people to be able to relate to me as though I’m their sister or their friend. Life happens and sometimes you get dealt s****y cards and you just do the best you can do and make lemonade out of lemons.”

“Everyone’s like ‘Oh God, how did you get Damon Wayans Jr. and this other person?’ But it’s like Damon Wayans Jr. and I, we’ve known each other since I was 12. There’s no getting. And the other person, I’ve known for 10 years plus. There was no ‘getting’ in that either, we’re from a whole huge group of friends. We’ve been friends for a very long time.

There’s no getting, there’s no ho, there’s no anything. It’s like you meet the boy next door and y’all have been neighbors for years. It seems messy but if you compare it to any other situation, it’s no beef. Everybody’s good. Everyone’s extremely happy.”
