In February top Gospel singer and pastor at Lakewood church Israel Houghton of Israel & The New Breed, announced he and his wife of 20 years Meleasa were divorcing after he had cheated on her.
He went public with his relationship with 32 year old singer & co host on The Real – Adrienne Bailon just a month after.
When people dragged her for being a homewrecker, 45 year old Houghton took to his facebook page to defend her and set a couple of rumours straight.
Well the couple aren’t letting all the drama surrounding their relationship hold them back…yesterday Bailon and Houghton took their love a step further to marriage by getting engaged in Paris.
She showed off photos of her gorgeous diamond ring in front of the Eiffel Tower with the caption, “You. Me. Oui.”
About their engagement Houghton had this to say,
I have seen and felt the essence of Gods grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman.
I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.
