Adrienne Bailon Clarifies Relationship With Israel Houghton (VIDEO)
Adrienne Bailon has a new man in her life, but her love story with Gospel singer Israel Houghton has been riddled with scandal.
Upon news of their newfound relationship, fans quickly dug up a bit of dirt on the new couple, with the juiciest bit of gossip being that the 44-year-old crooner was once married — and announced his divorce just a month before he was spotted vacationing with The Real co-host.
Making things all the more scandalous, Israel and his wife were close friends with Adrienne and her former beau, Lenny Santiago, which caused many to wonder if the former 3LW singer was the cause for the “Moving Forward” star’s divorce.
Thankfully, the 32-year-old kept it “real” during an episode of her talk show where she broke her silence on the matter to clarify some misconceptions about her much talked-about relationship.
“I think I'm more than anything grateful that I have a platform like this, where I can be with my girls. The show is called The Real, it is a place where we can speak about the truth. With that being said, the man pictured here is not married. Praise God," she said.
“The other thing people were saying was that I was the cause of his divorce,” she continued, “and the truth of the matter is that is not the case.”
Adrienne went into greater detail regarding her relationship with Israel and how hurtful the accusations were.
