Adrienne Bailon  made headlines last month after being spotted on a romantic vacation in Tulum, Mexico with gospel singer, Israel Houghton. Turned out, Houghton was The Real host’s new beau.

But after a slew of beach paparazzi photos hit the web, Bailon became subject to rumors that she broke up Israel’s 20 year marriage with wife Meleasa, whom he split with back in February.

But now, after weeks of speculation, the 32-year-old is shedding some light on she and the Grammy Award winner’s relationship. “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,” Bailon said during an episode of The Real, set to air on Tuesday. “With that being said, the man pictured here is not married. Praise God.”

She 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.”

Adrienne further explained, “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.”

She concluded, “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.”

Adrienne and Houghton, 44, met on the set of the 2013 film, I’m in Love With a Church Girl. Bailon starred in the flick and her now new boo, was executive producer.

    That wasn’t even coherent. Try harder. If you think anyone is believing this Sesame Street Story you’ve put together…you really need more people…

      I’m so terribly disappointed.
      I realize that all sin and fall short of the glory of God however the leadership of the church community can not continue to white wash illicit behavior.
      Andrienne’s,statements are weak and convoluted.
      We can not keep confessing “Jesus is Lord” and worship our feelings.
      God is not blind. God is not confused about His truth. He is not mute nor paralyzed.
      God sees our actions. Spoke and continues speaking His truth. Gods character and mind set are not conflicted but set and permanate.
      It is not God’s place to move in agreement with our whims. It is our place and because we confess “He is Lord”, it is our obligation to do His will.
      God says “He hates divorce”. Yet within the church we a matter of factly accept with ease what He hates.
      Where is salt church? What is truth church? Who is God church? Why call Him Lord church?
      How can we convince the world to follow Christmas , when we dont?

        I agree with you highly you know I looked up to Israel as one of the pronoun leaving of faith-based music and to know that like a natural man with all the problems the demons inject into us really disappoints me

    I am saddened to hear that another man of God is struggling personally. However, God’s grace and love will never fail us, even when we fail. My heart goes out to Brother Houghton and his former wife. I pray God heal their broken hearts. I pray God help their children as well.

    And I pray for God’s grace and mercy for the new couple, Israel and Ms. Bailon.

    Not wishing any thing mean your way Adrienne ;however, that does not make any sense. It’s sounds like justification. So he cheated five years ago and three years ago you acted in one of his productions and early this year he got a divorce and then you and he quietly marry before the year ends?

    God does not lie and we can all agree that our sin actions like that are so to our own lust and when we do not resist the devil. The word says to resist the devil and he will flee from you- God will not allow you to be tempted above that which you are able to bear but with that temptation He will
    Make a way out for you- so there you have it . somebody is not truthful, but God is true!, merciful and forgiven to those chosen.
    See Romans 9.

    It amazes me how people live in glass houses themselves and still find every opportunity to throw stones. The word of God says all have sinned, not some, but all. So who are we to judge. At the end of it all, Israel will stsnd before God by himself. Not with the critics and naysayers. Maybe the problem is people looked up to the man and not the work that God has done through the man. Israel’s music has ministered me through the years and l will continue to lift him in prayer.
