Exclusive: Texas Attorney General Drops Israel Houghton Suit Over Secret Sons

Adrienne Bailon Israel Houghton

In June, the Texas State Attorney General’s Child Support Division sued Houghton to determine how much he should pay for the upkeep of the two love children, and asked the court to figure out whether both back and current child support for the two tots, as well as medical expenses and health insurance, needed to be paid.

The state wanted Houghton come up with his tax returns, checking and savings accounts statements, 401K info, proof of health insurance coverage and income history so that the court could figure out how much he possibly owed.

Houghton’s lawyer previously told BOSSIP that the dad of six was already financially supporting his sons, and had never actually been served with the suit.

The state generally brings cases like these to the courts when one parent tries to go on public assistance, according to the attorney general’s office.

The kids were born while Houghton was still married to his now ex-wife, Meleasa, and have his last name. They live with their mother in a Houston suburb.

Houghton later admitted his marriage was over and Joel Osteen’s megachurch put him on indefinite leave.

Houghton has since moved on from both Meleasa and Moreno, marrying “The Real’s” Adrienne Bailon last month in Paris.

We’ve reached out to Houghton and his lawyer for comment.
