Adrienne Bailon Explains Why She’s Still Talking About Rob Kardashian 4 Years Later
Since landing a spot on new daytime talk show The Real, it seems like we’ve heard more from Adrienne Bailon about her relationship with Rob Kardashian than we did during the past four years that they’ve been broken up and the time they were together combined. During a recent interview with the Jasmine Brand, the I’m in Love with a Church Girl actress shared why she’s still talking about that relationship so many years later, even though there’s a new man in her life. According to Adrienne, she never really discussed the relationship or break-up until now.
“I think, you know, as of lately, it takes a lot of courage to be real. And I think people don’t realize that it also takes an open heart and open mind and not to judge. You never know what somebody else’s life experiences, you know – what’s not and then there. It’s an hour’s show. I can’t tell you my whole life in an hour, but what I will say is that you know, I’ve also heard a lot of things like, ‘Why is she talking about Rob?’ I have to speak from a personal standpoint – I have only had 3 relationships in my entire life – like boyfriends. So it was my 1st boyfriend, that was there for 10 years, Rob and then the man I’m with now. I can’t speak to you about what someone else’s experience – I can only talk to you about my life, my experience and Rob happens to be a part of that,” she started.
The 29-year-old actress went on to say that she hopes her experiences can keep someone else from making similar mistakes.
“I think it’s sad that people will judge and be like ‘Well, why are you talking about him years later?’ Well, it’s actually my 1st time ever talking about it. He got his chance to speak about it on his reality show, where he read emails about me and talked about me – entire episodes that were about me that really didn’t get my approval. So four years later, for me to just share my experience, I’m not trying to hurt anybody. If anything, I want people to be able to learn from what I went through. Getting a tattoo on my A$$ – not the smartest idea. But hopefully there’s a young girl out there that is considering that, saying to herself ‘That’s not a smart idea. Adrienne did that. Rob did that – not a smart idea.'”
She adds that she believes Rob probably shares similar sentiments.
“I think he’d agree with that too so I’m sure he doesn’t want my name on his body either. Years later, I don’t think it’s saying anything negative but just keeping it real. And that’s my reality, that’s my life, that’s what I went through, and well, yeah.”
So what do you think of Adrienne’s explanation?
