Yesterday afternoon, some interesting pictures of Adrienne Bailon and a mystery man surfaced on Fameolous Ent.
Adrienne and this visibly older man were in Mexico, cuddled up in the pool. Not really wanting to believe what I was seeing, I assumed that the man, with a Santa Claus belly and a large bald spot, could have been her father. But it was my coworker who pointed out that no woman hugs up her father in the water, when they’re both half naked unless somebody’s drowning. It’s just inappropriate.
Plus, in the images it appears as if the two are wearing wedding rings.
Still, his identity was unknown so I went on about my night.
Then, earlier this morning, Fameolous confirmed that the man was none other than Grammy-award-winning gospel artist Israel Houghton. They matched tattoos, smiles and everything.
And in case you haven’t heard of Fameolous and don’t trust their receipts, TMZ, reported on it this morning as well.
This is exceptionally interesting. Particularly when, just last month, Houghton took to his Facebook page to announce that because of his infidelity he and his wife of 20 years, Meleasa Houghton, were getting a divorce.
Naturally, many are wondering if Bailon played a part in the ending of that marriage.
While I hate to call Chris Brown up as a witness, you will remember that when the women of “The Real,” discussed his relationship with Karrueche, he posted a long Instagram post in which he said Bailon was sleeping with a married man.
Again, Chris Brown is not the most reliable source but it’s certainly interesting, considering this Mexican vacation is not the first time Adrienne and Israel’s paths might have crossed. In 2013, he produced the movie I’m in Love With a Church Girl, starring Bailon and Ja-Rule.
And ironically, Houghton was one of the first people to congratulate Lenny and Adrienne on their engagement.
You know what they say about your replacement always being close by.
Since Lenny and Adrienne called off their engagement, many of us were surprised to hear Adrienne making references to her sex life and new boyfriend on “The Real.” I guess now we know who that man is.
Naturally, people have been all up in Adrienne’s comments and mentions trying to figure out what’s going on.
And in the comment section of her Instagram page, she issued this response.
Someone, in the comment section said, “Girl, don’t you know we can multitask?”
I have to agree. If my character were called into question in such a way, I would be very clear about my lack of involvement with a married man. Something to the tune of “I am not sleeping with a married man; I wasn’t messing with him when he was married; This is not my boyfriend, or This is my husband.” Anything else is just not enough in the face of all these receipts.
I’m sure the true story will come to light, one way or another.
As open and honest as Adrienne has been about her love life, I’d be surprised if she didn’t address this on “The Real.”
In the meantime, this whole story got us like
