Adrienne Bailon’s Boyfriend May Be Out Of A Job
It’s been a tough week for Adrienne Bailon and her new boo Israel Houghton, and the news just got worse as it’s just been revealed that he’s been released from his duties as a worship leader at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church and placed on indefinite leave after revealing he and his wife were divorcing over his infidelities.
According to RadarOnline reports:
Houghton, 44, worked as a minister at Lakewood Church as far back as 2011. But recently, Radar reported, he was mysteriously wiped from the website. A rep for the church confirmed to Radar that he is no longer part of the fold after announcing his divorce amid cheating rumors in February.
A rep for Lakewood told Radar exclusively, “Lakewood Church released Israel Houghton from his responsibilities as a worship leader [in February] and placed him on indefinite leave. Since that time, he has not been featured in any Lakewood Church related activities.”
The rep continued, “Lakewood Church is not at liberty to discuss publicly any details regarding Israel’s personal situation, but stands ready to provide Israel with spiritual counseling and guidance should he choose to seek it.”
As Radar reported, Houghton was spotted on a steamy Mexican getaway with Bailon at the Dreams resort in Tulum over the weekend. He was still wearing a wedding band, although he announced in February he and his wife Meleasa were splitting after 20 years. He admitted at the time that he had “failed and sinned” against his wife.
A defiant Houghton insisted yesterday, however, that Bailon, 32, was not the other woman responsible for the breakdown of his marriage.
Well the good news is it’s indefinite leave and not permanent. The bad news is Israel and Adrienne’s love has now been tainted with all this negativity. We just hope he doesn’t do her dirty like he did his wife.
Do you think Israel should seek counseling at Lakewood and try to get his job back? Or is it best for him to take some time off and let the congregation heal from the news of his sinful ways?
