Dwyane Wade is setting the record straight on why he and his wife Gabrielle Union split their finances 50/50.

During an appearance on the Club Shay Shay podcast, Wade broke down Union's viral comment on the couple's finance, per People. The 50/50 agreement came after the retired NBA star said he flippantly called their Miami home "my house."

“I said something about it being my house that I paid for. My wife looked at me and said 'you will never say that to me again when it’s something that we share,' " Wade told podcast host Shannon Sharpe. “So when we moved to [Los Angeles], my wife said ‘I got half on it you will never say my house again — you can say that in the arena!’"

The former Miami Heat player further explained that he and Union evenly split the finances to purchase their Los Angeles home. With their daughter Kaavia, “anything that goes on with her, 50/50 we share it together,” Wade added.

“We decided that certain pieces of our life, we would share in it,” he told Sharpe.

While Wade and Union split their finances evenly, he said they each provide for their loved ones 100 percent of the time.

“I have 20 to 50 responsibilities and my wife has 20 to 50 responsibilities and when I say that, that means she has her mother, she has her sisters, she has her dad so she has a lot of things she’s responsible for,” Wade said on the podcast. “She pays 100% of that and you know what I do? I pay 100% of my life.”

Wade also touched on their decision to sign a prenup.

“I told her the same way, ‘I’ll sign a prenup too. You’re a millionaire, you got money. You work hard for yourself.'"

Last month, Union went viral after revealing that she and her husband “split everything fifty-fifty” in their household.

"But in the other households that each of us have to support, there's always this like, gorilla on your back, that's like, 'You better work, b---, you better work. Oh, you're going to sleep in?' You know, somebody might not eat," the actress continued. "It's hard. It's hard to let that go. So I'm working on that."
