Adrienne bailon is dating
They began dating after he divorced his wife of 20 years earlier this year.
Adrienne Bailon is speaking out for the first time about the drama surrounding her realtionship with gospel artist Israel Houghton.
Praise God."The new romance sparked controversy because Houghton publicly repented and addressed his divorce in an open letter posted on Facebook earlier this year.
While the ladies of ' The Real' normally talk about other celebrities during the Hot Topic segment, co-host Adrienne Bailon’s romance with gospel singer Israel Houghton became a topic of conversation this week.
Find out why she says she's being judged unfairly inside... Because just one month prior, he came out about his marriage with his wife of two decades being newly dissolved.
Last month, "The Real" co-host Adrienne Bailon was spotted on a romantic vacay with Joel Osteen's employee and gospel artist Israel Houghton. He also admitted to cheating on her five years ago.
And I think the other thing that people were saying was that I was the cause of his divorce. I think you see an announcement made you know, at the top of this year and then you see these photos and you say to yourself, “Well let’s put this together.” But this is why I’m grateful for moments like this because it allows you to set the facts straight.
Which I think any divorce is obviously a sad thing people have to go through. And God forbid the facts get in the way of a really good juicy story.
I think I'm more than anything grateful that I have a platform like this, where I can be with my girls. But I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… The couple first went public with their relationship in April of this year and got engaged during a romantic trip to Paris.
Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me,” Israel wrote.
What started as rumors stemming from tabloid photos that Bailon and Houghton were dating were quickly confirmed and it came just a month after Houghton publicly announced that his marriage of some 20 years was legally over.
