Adrienne Bailon Calls Off Engagement With Fiancé
Adrienne Bailon has confirmed that her engagement to Roc Nation exec Lenny Santiago has been called off. The two were engaged for seven months before ending things. Bailon confirmed the split in an interview with Us Weekly, saying in a statement:
“I am, of course, sad that things didn’t go as we planned, but we still remain close friends. Six years is a long time to be together, but we had to make the decision to go with our hearts and not be embarrassed or afraid of change. He absolutely helped make me a better person and I will forever cherish the time we shared together.”
“Right now I am taking time for myself and I’m glad to be back at work with my favorite ladies and the incredible crew of The Real. Life lessons are hard but I’m grateful that I have a platform to share my journey and hopefully encourage, inspire, or just let women know they are not alone and to never give up on finding love. I still believe. I feel so blessed and excited for the new season of The Real and I truly appreciate the support from everyone!”
Bailon began dating Santiago after her relationship with Rob Kardashian came to an end in 2010. If you’re confused by the math since Bailon said in her statement she dated Santiago for six years, we’re as confused as you since only five years have only passed since the Kardashian split.
