It has been revealed exclusively by TMZ that Israel is in a new relationship with non-other than singer and TV host Adrienne Bailon.

Adrienne Bailon, who is also Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend, was recently engaged to her boyfriend of 6 years Lenny Santiago but in September 2015 they announced that they had called off their relationship.

According to TMZ, Adrienne Bailon and Israel are currently on a Mexican holiday together. TMZ also reports that even though Israel just recently became officially available, he’s been seeing Adrienne for a while.

      Rob was hot when she was with him. It’s his recent depression that made him big.

    Isreal even when you announced that you cheated hence your divorce, I still supported you thinking we all fall short sometimes but God’s grace will lift us back up…. but Isreal if this is true you really really fall my hand fam, all I can say is I am not God and he is still gracious.

      It’s extremely irritating when people mistype the name of our Lord (assuming you’re Christain) in an attempt to be funny or silly. I honestly don’t know the motivation behind it.
      Pls stop it. It’s disrespectful.

      Well……. his real name was Yeshua so “Jesus” itself could be called a mistype #JustSaying

    I don’t get all these comment,
    Are you guys saying Adrienne isn’t a smart move, Why?
    Is it because she’s a pop star with tv show or is it that bikini picture?
    I really don’t get.
    She’s a really good girl, maybe not all “chineke like” but we can’t judge who we don’t know.
    Look at Russell (who’s a great catch), Ciara’s, good for him.
    Sometimes, opposite attract and that’s good too.

      @PoisonIvy, I don’t get it too o. What is wrong with Adrienne? Its not like there has been a gist that she’s a hoe or anything like. Undoubtedly, its an odd pairing, but why are people saying Isreal backslid? Is Adrienne a self-proclaimed atheist or sango worshipper? Is there something I am missing here?

    • lR

      March 24, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      Its not that she is not a good match he is supposed to be saved and she is still in the world.

    March 22, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    I really hope she is not the reason his marriage ended.

    Israel, Israel Israeliiiiiiiiiiii!!!! How many times did I call you! Iyen ni pe you’ve been seeing Adrienne before you made your divorce announcement. Ok na… How una take jam each other sef? As una dey so, you no fit talk say una no straff for this ya holiday.

    I have no problem with ‘ordinary christians’ doing whatever they like for God is the true judge. But when you are in a position where you are opportuned to minister worldwide, you’ve got to be careful with what you do and how you portray yourself… not necessarily because what you are doing is wrong, but because of how it negatively influences the not so strong/baby /new christians who you inspire or who look up to you….

    One little boy who is currently honing his musical skills in his church choir and who listens to your cd’s non stop and wants to be like you, may see/hear this and think ‘what the heck, it doesnt matter how annointed I am, if my marriage doesnt work out, I can get a divorce’ matter of fact, ‘ I can frolic with my girlfriend on the beach a couple of weeks after announcing my divorce and it’s airee.. then I can hit the studio afterwards and produce my best album yet, telling the world how I fell but I got up!

    What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

    I think premarital sex and adultery stopped being a sin long time ago. Same thing with what lies in the heart of a gospel artiste and a non-gospel artiste seem pretty same these days. Love to see such tales up in Nigeria though, wonder what self righteous cats would make of it.

    It’s very clear in the Bible. Christians should not be yoked with unbelievers. It’s not being judgemental to question what Houghton is doing with this lady. They both moved too fast. And she doesn’t strike me as a Christian. For God sakes, she was formerly dating a Kardashian! Lawd’a mercy

      She is just because she says she believes in God if you dont strive to live according to his will and his ways you are an unbeliever.

    I just finished reading Israel Houghton”s pathetic appology on his so called facebook, about how his marriage sadly came to an end after 5 years of trying to restore his marriage after his ADULTEROUS AFFAIR, maybe he was the reason all along that his marriage didn’t recover, hell maybe he didn’t put all the effort in winning his wife’s trust again. And now with this, he just filed for divorce about a month ago and he’s moved on really quick, maybe this is what he really wanted. I am tired of people who fall this way and then want to claim God’s grace. Please…. It looks like he used Gods grace to get unevenly yolked with an non-believer.

    By the way, we DO HAVE TO JUDGE……..Is this the right person for me? Is this the right thing for me to do? Are these people, good friends with good CARACTER?

    YES we must judge, The bible even says.. if some one calls themselves a brother and is: greedy, pround, arrogant, etc DONT EVEN EAT WITH THEM………So how do you figure this out, you JUDGE a person’s CHARACTER.

    @ *rme, I really HATE it too when people do that! It’s simply blasphemous! Using the name of Jesus in jest. Let what is sacred remain sacred, please.

    Okay this guy has just lost the plot. It all adds up now. I refused to believe the comments last week which stated that the apology was ‘damage control’ now i’m beginning to believe it. I guess when he was planning this trip he knew what the backlash would he would receive if nobody new that he was actually divorced. SMH. what has the world come to?

    In the midst of all that’s going on in the world… Suffering, terrorism, deciding a future for our country, and making the world safer; It is sad that I am even having to address this matter… I understand that gossip and salacious untrue speculative stories are far more interesting and entertaining than the truth & facts. But, it’s incredibly unfair to allow someone to carry the burden, blame & shame of something they had nothing to do with…
    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.

    Adrienne is not a child. She should be about 30 now. The marriage (relationship) was over. It’s just the papers that were pending. I don’t think she broke them up. Just last summer she was engaged to be married.

    My dear God does exist , but he gave men free will to chose him or the world….you were created to serve Jesus no matter what you do you will always feel an emptiness if you dont come to know him…Dont let the mistakes of men prevent you from seeking a true living God I have seen him do great things in my life….I have been out in the world there is nothing satisfying out there….I pray You seek him one day…

    It’s a sad shame that Israel Houghton may be the only Christ some people see. Yes, we all sin and come short of God’s glory but the issues come when you decide to Rep Jesus on a worldwide spectrum and then crumble to sin when we know that he that is within us is greater than he that is in the world. There’s no judgment given just great disappointment in him, Dietrick Haddon, preachers of LA…Atlanta and all people who are called with the purpose of winning souls to Christ and are actually turning people away. To hear someone say that makes them a happy atheist makes my heart very very sad. I will continue to believe that there are REAL, DEDICATED Christians who are willing to deny themselves for the kingdom of God. And I will pray that they stand up to change the stereotype of what the world sees from people like Israel. I am saddened that Like Dietrick Haddon I will not be able to support Israel. Sad day. Be Blessed. God loves you all and *Have a great day on purpose*
