After being dragged through Internet mud for reportedly breaking up Israel Hougton’s marriage, Adrienne Bailon addresses the rumors head on in an episode of The Real airing today.
The TV host will use her platform to make it clear—her boyfriend is not married.
“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.”
The 32-year-old continued defending her relationship, saying:
“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.”
See, nothing juicy happening over here. Just two people praying and dating.
