Singer/actress Adrienne Bailon was hurt by reports suggesting she had broken up her new boyfriend Israel Houghton's marriage.
The former 3LW and The Cheetah Girls beauty was snapped on vacation in Mexico with the Grammy-winning gospel singer in March (16) just a month after he confirmed his split from his wife of 20 years Meleasa.
The photos lead to speculation they had been having an affair and Adrienne was the reason for his marriage split, but Israel issued a statement on Facebook to deny the allegations.
Adrienne has now addressed the reports on her U.S. talk show The Real, confirming she is dating Israel but he is not married, and she had nothing to do with his divorce.
"People were saying was that I was the cause of his divorce, which I think any divorce is obviously a sad thing," she tells her co-hosts on Tuesday's (05Apr16) episode. "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," she continues. "This is why I'm grateful for things like this (the show) because it allows you to set the facts straight and God forbid the facts get in the way of a really good, juicy story.
"I'm going to say the truth and the truth of the matter is that isn't the case," she shared. "He obviously is divorced. He had put out a statement saying that he had failed in his marriage and it was about five years back. I didn't know him at the time. So to put that blame on me was obviously hurtful."
Adrienne, 32, previously dated Rob Kardashian from 2007 to 2009, and split from her music executive fiance Lenny Santiago last year (15).
