Dwyane Wade took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend wife Gabrielle Union (pics above) following her departure from “America’s Got Talent,” claiming that she had been fired by NBC.

Variety first reported last week that both Union and Julianne Hough’s contracts had not been renewed by the network.

A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment.
