Dwyane Wade is defending wife Gabrielle Union. Six months following her exit from America's Got Talent after one season, Union reportedly filed a discrimination complaint against Simon Cowell, NBC, FremantleMedia and Syco Entertainment with California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing in Los Angeles.

After NBC said in a statement that the actress' allegations were "categorically untrue," Wade couldn't help but speak out.

"Y’all have deemed her a liar after months of trying to inform y’all of the issues in the work place and also make sure other employees of color that comes after her won’t have the same experiences," the former NBA star tweeted. "So instead of making sure your work environment is a a better place for everyone. Y’all have decided that she what? Made it all up because she lost a job? She’s a black women in Hollywood she has lost out on many jobs."

Wade continued by claiming that after the negotiations started, his and Union's home "started being watched." He also claimed his family "started being followed. "My daughter couldn’t even go to swim class without us being trailed by people looking for answers. Well y’all have the answers and y’all still don’t wanna listen to them," he added.

In Union's complaint, filed by attorney Bryan Freedman, she also claimed NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy tried to "silence and intimidate" her, according to multiple reports. ET has reached out to Cowell, Fremantle and Syco for comment. 

In a statement to ET on Thursday, NBC said, "The allegation that anyone involved in this process threatened Ms. Union is categorically untrue. We took Ms. Union's concerns seriously, and engaged an outside investigator who found an overarching culture of diversity on the show. NBCUniversal remains committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect."
