The Real talk-show host, Adrienne Bailon and the gospel singer, Israel Houghton spent the week relaxing on the beach, unwinding at the spa and enjoying a tequila tasting, according to US Magazine.
Houghton recently announced his divorce from his wife, Meleasa, in February, after more than 20 years of marriage and a long separation. He also took to Facebook on Tuesday, March 22, to defend his relationship with Bailon.
…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.
Bailon, 32, and Houghton, 44, have known each other for a few years. He exec-produced her 2013 film I’m in Love With a Church Girl.
