Not long ago, worship leader, songwriter, producer and Gospel artist Israel Houghton shocked fans when he announced over Facebook that his divorce with his wife of over 20 years had been finalized. A few weeks later, Houghton has been seen in the arms of actress Adrienne Bailon vacationing in Mexico. Now, Bailon is clearing up the whole situation about his new boyfriend Israel Houghton.
"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," the 32-year-old TV personality explains during tomorrow's episode of the popular show. "With that being said, the man pictured here is not married. Praise God."
Bailon continued, "He had actually put out a statement. He is single, number one. The other thing people were saying was that I was the cause of the divorce, which I think any divorce is obviously a sad thing. People have to go through it, [it] takes time to get through that sort of thing, and I think no one put that time together. I think people see an announcement was made at the top of the year and then they see these photos and then they think well let's put this together but this is why I'm grateful for things like this because it allows you to set the facts straight and God forbid the facts get in the way of a really juicy story. I'm going to say the truth and the truth of the matter is he isn't married. He obviously is divorced."
Before moving on to another subject, Bailon had one final note to put an end to the speculation once and for all, saying, "He had put out a statement that he had failed in his marriage and it was five years back and I didn't know him at the time. So to put that on me was obviously hurtful."
