It’s #Baecation Season And Adrienne Bailon Has Debuted Her New Boo: Gospel Singer Israel Houghton

By  | 



My favorite Cheetah Girl was spotted (Get it? Spotted!) this week in Tulum living it up. Adrienne posted a couple selfies on her Instagram but neglected to post a pic of who she was on vacay with. Unfortunately for Adrienne, nothing gets by the paparazzi! The blogs went crazy when Adrienne’s mystery man was revealed to be Grammy-award winning Gospel artist, Israel Houghton. The two worked together in 2013 when Houghton produced the movie “I’m in Love with a Church Girl” starring Adrienne and rapper Ja Rule.

Their relationship is already under fire because Houghton just recently ended his 20 year marriage last month. He has admitted to being unfaithful in his marriage. People are speculating that his infidelity was with Adrienne, given the time frame. Israel took to Facebook to confirm his relationship with Adrienne and also deny that she was the reason for his divorce.

He had this to say:

In the midst of all that’s going on in the world… Suffering, terrorism, deciding a future for our country, and making the world safer; It is sad that I am even having to address this matter… I understand that gossip and salacious untrue speculative stories are far more interesting and entertaining than the truth & facts. But, it’s incredibly unfair to allow someone to carry the burden, blame & shame of something they had nothing to do with…

“I met Adrienne Bailon a bit over 2 years ago, we worked together & became friends… Our circles connected & we remained good friends. From a friendship, as two single adults we have very recently begun to explore a dating relationship.

As I previously wrote in a statement I released a while back, My marriage had been over for quite some time before going public with my divorce announcement.

Where I shared, or as some have pointed out ‘over-shared’ my failure in my marriage… From over 5 years prior. It seems to be simple math that I had not even yet met Adrienne during the time my marriage was falling apart.

It deeply saddens me that an innocent party would be dragged into this situation that I have taken personal responsibility for. Adrienne is a woman of integrity & character… Most of all she is a true friend, and she should not be blamed for my past indiscretions. I assure you – I am willing to own my wrongs and I have in the past. God knows & sees all things. I appreciate your prayers, and I join you in praying for the issues of life that truly matter today all over the world.”

Israel also seems to have been friends with Adrienne’s ex-fiance. He congratulated the two after their engagement.

I’m not sure what brought this two together, but Adrienne looks happy. I couldn’t help but notice that Adrienne is looking pretty thick. I call that happy weight and she is definitely owning it. Keep living baby girl, happiness looks good on you!
