Gabrielle Union Opens Up About Being Raped at 19 Years Old

  During an interview on Monday on The View, Gabrielle Union candidly opened up about being raped at 19-years-old, and shared what helped her to overcome such a traumatic experience.   While working at a shoe store, Union and a co-worker were both held up at gunpoint and now, at 41-years-old, Dwyane Wade‘s fiancée reveals that not wanting to be treated like a victim helped her recover from the tragedy.   "I hated the cloak of victimhood. I realized they were going to allow me to be a victim, and not succeed and not achieve my goals. It makes you lazy, and I wanted that cloak of victimhood off. I wanted to embrace being a survivor. That’s who I am. I wasn’t raised to be coddled, I was raised to be an independent woman, standing on my own two feet, and that’s the road I opted to take.”   Watch the video below.     Source: GlobalGrind/ Image: Usmagazine.com   @sara-leerowe
