We have been saying that we are all in this COVID-19 pandemic struggle together no matter what your race, creed, color or financial situation is, however are we?
According to actress Gabrielle Union, wife of retired NBA star Dwyane Wade, financial struggles have gotten real, and she upset some folks when she went live with the financial woes of celebrities saying they are 2 pay checks away from being broke.
“For all of the Oprahs and the people who have just a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of money, most of us are one or two checks away from not having money to pay for all of our things, you know what I mean? So this stoppage of work and money is impacting marginalized celebrities the most,”
Gabrielle say’s that people mistaken celebrities being famous for being wealthy.
