Gabrielle Union's husband Dwyane Wade jokingly threatens Jimmy Butler after he leaves flirty comment on her photo

Their fourth anniversary is less than two weeks away.

And Dwyane Wade showed that he is still protective as ever of Gabrielle Union, 45, after another professional basketball player left a comment on his wife's Instagram.

The 36-year-old NBA star jokingly threatened Minnesota Timberwolves shooting guard Jimmy Butler on Friday.

Things started heating up when Union posted a picture of her gorgeous self walking out of a pool.

She was dressed in a cropped back top as well as bikini bottoms encrusted in gold sequins.

Butler took it upon himself to remark upon the Bad Boys II star's beauty, commenting, 'WELL DAMN!!' on the image.

The compliment didn't sit well with Wade who responded with a comment of his own on a video that Butler posted on Friday with the caption, 'The good, the bad, and the ugly aka @ayeyoomike__.'

'Put well damn in caps on my wife's photo again and you're gonna see what the good, the bad and the ugly is like,' wrote Union's husband.

Butler, of course, took the comment with a pinch of salt as he responded playfully, 'Well that escalated quickly. Point noted.. I'm still coming to the bbq tho.'

The pair are currently enjoying what the actress has dubbed the 'Wade World Tour 2018' on Instagram.

They enjoyed a vacation to Monte Carlo in May, to enjoy the annual Monaco Gran Prix, and then jetted to Ibiza from the south of France.

Union and Wade were in Venice, Italy on Friday, attending a wedding, and headed up to Lake Como on Saturday.

Gabrielle was married to ex-NFL running back Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006 before going down the aisle with her current NBA star husband.

The pair began dating in 2009, and officially tied the knot in August 2014 - spending their honeymoon in the Maldives and Tanzania.
