Adrienne Bailon Revealed Details About Her Virginity When She Got Married to Israel Houghton

Actor, singer, and talk show host Adrienne Bailon has been in the spotlight for two decades and has captured the hearts of millions with her charming personality and undeniable talent. From her days of singing in the R&B girl group 3LW to the Disney pop sensation The Cheetah Girls and later into adulthood as a co-host on the popular talk show The Real, Bailon has always been upfront about who she is and where she comes from.

Throughout her time in the entertainment industry, Bailon has also been in a few relationships with other public figures.

Adrienne Bailon dated Rob Kardashian

In the late 2000s, Bailon famously dated Rob Kardashian — a romance that was captured by cameras in the early days of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Bailon was so dedicated to her lover that she even got his name tattooed on her butt. (She documented the process of having the large tattoo removed in a 2014 segment on Extra, five years after their split.)

“For me, I feel like getting the tattoo was painful, and I think living the last six years with somebody’s name on your body is a little weird, and that’s a bit more painful,” she chuckled.

Adrienne Bailon spoke about her virginity status at the time she married Israel Houghton

In April 2021, Bailon and the other co-hosts of The Real discussed the controversial topic of brides wearing pure white at weddings if they aren’t a virgin. The Cheetah Girls star weighed in on the issue from her own experience.

“I know this may come as a shock to so many of you: I was not a virgin when I got married,” Bailon laughed. She went on to describe her thought process when selecting the color of her dress for her big day.

“I didn’t wear white-white, but I will say this: I would have no problem wearing white-white if white-white was the color that I wanted to wear,” Bailon said honestly.

“I don’t think that it needs to be that deep,” she added. “I think you need to know who you’re marrying. I think that’s really what it comes down to.”
