Alright y’all so yesterday, Dreka Gates, the wife of rapper Kevin Gates posted a picture of her and her husband on a private jet where she was treating him to a foot massage.
Adrienne Bailon Houghton got called out on Media Takeout today after a lot of chitter chatter online claiming that she did a whole house tour of a house that she doesn’t even own.
Adrienne has a YouTube channel called “All Things Adrienne” where she opens up about her life and her home and things that her fans are interested in. After doing tour of her home in Bel Air (which is beautiful) Adrienne posted another house tour a few weeks later of her beach house in Malibu.
That house was beautiful as well. But what got people talking was the fact that the same beach house that she toured was also listed for rent on Air BnB! So it looked like Adrienne was trying to pull a fast one like celebrities used to do on MTV Cribs back in the day, and give a tour of a beautiful beach house that she didn’t even own.
Personally, I wasn’t surprised that the beach house was on Air BnB because the link to the Air BnB listing was actually in the description box of the video. Because I’m also a YouTube content creator I always read the description box of the videos I watch on YouTube, so I saw it there when she first posted the video.
And in the video she actually mentions that her husband built a studio in the house so you can rent it to use the studio.
So, of course, Adrienne had to clap back at people who claimed that she was fronting like she owned the house when she really doesn’t. When someone posted the MTO article in her Instagram comments she responded:
The story about Adrienne lying wasn’t entirely made up though. Yes, she was honest about it being her house that she rents out on Air BnB. But she left her own review on the house, as if she was a guest there and not the owner. Which is kinda like lying to me…
She posted a review saying:
Of course you’ve stayed there multiple times if you own it! That’s the whole point of owning a house. And I think it’s kind of deceptive to leave a review as a guest of a house that you actually own. But that’s just my opinion.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Talk show host and singer Adrienne Bailon Houghton revealed on The Real that she and husband Israel Houghton will be trying to have a baby in 2018!
The hosts were each taking turns sharing their New Year’s Resolutions and she breathlessly said hers was “to start a family”. She actually looked a little surprised and relieved once she said it, kinda like like it may have been the first time she’s said it out loud.
I’m so happy for her! This would be her first child and Israel Houghton’s fifth.
Check out this video from Daytime Tea Time for more on Adrienne & Israel Houghton’s baby plans!
For those of you who like to keep up with Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton, Bossip is reporting that Israel Houghton just narrowly escaped a foreclosure on the home he owned with his previous wife Meleasa. Bossip reports,
Earlier this year, Deutsche Bank sued Houghton and ex Meleasa to foreclose their one-time family home last week in Harris County, Tx. Court, contending that the father of five hadn’t paid the mortgage in several months. In total, the bank said Houghton owed $89,111.54 from 11 times he was supposed to pay but failed to, according to court papers. In order for Houghton to fix the foreclosure, he’d have to cough up the total amount he owes on the mortgage: $608,654.17, according to court documents obtained by BOSSIP. The exes took out the home loan in 2006, and agreed an adjustable interest rate mortgage with initial monthly payments of $4,687, court documents state.
HOWEVER, Israel Houghton has found a buyer for his mansion, and the home’s proposed sale price will absolve his nearly $90,000 debt on the place, according to public records. Late last month, the bank filed paperwork to “nonsuit” the Houghton’s – which made them no longer responsible in the suit or for the mortgage debt. The home’s pending sale likely means that the bank will get its money and Israel and Meleasa can simply walk away from the home.
Sidenote: How come when you Google Meleasa Houghton this picture shows up?
*Skip to the bottom of this article if you only want the info about Israel Houghton’s kids and the unpaid child support.* I like to tell stories from the beginning, so here we go…
Whew! So a few months ago I posted a YouTube video about how Israel Houghton proposed to talk show host Adrienne Bailon in Paris, France. In my video I only spoke about how in love the two seem to be, and not about the “dirt” surrounding Israel Houghton.
But now even more information is coming out about Israel Houghton that makes me wonder if Adrienne will be able to forgive Israel!
Israel Houghton has openly admitted to cheating on his first wife, Meleasa.
First, we all (may) know that Israel Houghton was married to his first wife for nearly 20 years before divorcing her earlier this year. He has publicly admitted to cheating on her. And he even wrote an open letter on Facebook apologizing for his indiscretions.
Here is the full text of that letter:
“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.
Bishop Joel Osteen placed Israel Houghton on “indefinite leave” because of Israel’s indiscretions”
In the letter he mentions he is in the process of being restored. This may be spiritual “restoration” or he may have been referring to being restored to ministry at Lakewood Church, where he previously was a minister. Due to his indiscretions in his marriage, he was placed on an “indefinite leave” by the church. Where I’m from, we call this being “sat down”. And when a minister is “sat down” he is sometimes “restored” to his position after things have settled down if he/she shows that they are truly remorseful and that they have changed their ways. Here is the official statement from Lakewood Church regarding Israel’s status:
We can confirm that Israel is on indefinite leave, but it is important to clarify that we still consider Israel to be a part of the Lakewood family and that his employment has not been terminated
Israel’s proposal to Adrienne looked like something out of a fairy tale.
He proposed to her at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and apparently it was magical!
The two held a co-ed bridal shower just a few days ago that was beautiful as well.
Although their celebrations of love have been beautiful, magical, and all of that. What’s been ugly is the truth about Israel Houghton and the kids he allegedly fathered outside of his marriage to his first wife Meleasa.
There are two children at the center of the child support case that has been filed against Israel Houghton by the Texas Attorney General. The oldest child is 4 years old, and the youngest is just 2! That means both children were born DURING the course of Israel’s first marriage to Meleasa Haughton. No wonder she didn’t want to take him back.
The alleged mother of the children is Devawn Moreno. I feel bad for this woman, so I am not going to put links to her social media here. But it sounds like she was with Israel during the tail end of his marriage and perhaps she thought they were going to be together after his marriage ended. With her having not one, but two of his children, it certainly sounds like they were in a serious relationship for several years.
The Texas Attorney General has an open case against Israel Houghton for child support.
Here’s what you need to know about the case:
- Allegedly Israel has confirmed paternity of the oldest child (4), and the motion for paternity is for the youngest (2) child.
- The mother, Devawn Moreno, has been served as of September 2, 2016.
- Israel Houghton has not yet been served (likely due to his travels.)
- The suit requests Israel Houghton pay back and current child support as well as health insurance and medical expenses for both children.
- Israel’s attorney has issued a statement saying that Israel Houghton has been financially providing for both of the children since their births.
Do ya’ll think Adrienne knew about this situation before she agreed to marry him?? It seems like there was not only a wife in the picture, but a mistress too!
Israel Houghton proposed to Adrienne Bailon in Paris recently and although I was happy for the couple, I see the Internet is not. Israel was previously married and divorced his wife just one month before announcing his relationship with Adrienne.
Was he dating Adrienne before his marriage ended? Many people say yes, but only God knows the truth. And only God knows what’s in their hearts. As for me, I wish them the best.
