Adrienne Bailon Dating Gospel Singer Israel Houghton
There’s nothing like an old friend who becomes your new boo.
The scoop on the beach is “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon is dating Grammy award-winning gospel recording artist Israel Houghton.
The duo jetted away on a bae-cation to Dreams Resort & Spa in Mexico, where they were spotted walking along the beach, snapping selfies, and getting up close and personal in the water.
Both Adrienne and Israel are fresh out of long-term marriages/relationships.
Israel ended his marriage of 20 years earlier this year.
In a post on his Facebook page (which has since been deleted) he admitted he had sinned in the marriage and apologized.
It is with a collective heavy heart that we announce that after over 20 years of marriage and a long separation, Meleasa and I are officially divorced. Several years ago I failed and sinned in my marriage. Though this is new to many, it is not new to us as we have been working through this for over 5 years. Although we tried, the challenges in our relationship have proven too much to overcome. We have always handled our family and ministry with grace and generosity toward others, discretion, and privacy. So, for the sake of our amazing kids, we are also handling this privately with pastoral oversight and assistance. We choose to remain friendly and kind to each other going forward. I am in the process of restoration and I have repented for my actions. Although I am sincerely sorry, and forgiven, I soberly realize that I will live with the consequences of my failings for the rest of my life. As this has become a public matter I want to apologize to the many who have supported my ministry through the years. I’m sorry for the many who will be hurt to learn of my personal failure. I regret any pain or disappointment that this news may cause you. We thank you for your prayers and for allowing us to handle this privately with those who are set over us in this process.
Adrienne called off her engagement to Lenny Santiago last September after an Eat, Pray, Love journey.

In 2013, Adrienne Bailon starred opposite JaRule in the movie, I’m in Love With a Church Girl, which was produced by Israel Houghton.
Look at life coming full circle for them.
I wish them the best.
