Say it ain’t so!
On Wednesday, it was announced that Adrienne Bailon and her fianc├â┬⌐, Lenny Santiago, have called it quits. Oh no!
Miz Bailon and the Roc Nation exec first began dating six years ago following her high-profiled relationship with Rob Kardashian.
What’s sad is that the singer only announced her engagement seven-months-ago in a particularly gush-worthy statement.
At the time, she shared:
“I am so excited to be marrying my best friend. There’s nothing like having someone that makes you laugh, that encourages you, and motivates you…He’s such an incredible person and they say there’s always a great man behind a great woman and I say the same for him. He’s been that great motivation behind everything I do.”
Whomp, whomp. Well, it’s certainly been the year of celebrity breakups.
The former Disney darling revealed the heartbreaking split news in a new interview, saying:
“I am, of course, sad that things didn’t go as we planned, but we still remain close friends. Six years is a long time to be together, but we had to make the decision to go with our hearts and not be embarrassed or afraid of change. He absolutely helped make me a better person and I will forever cherish the time we shared together.”
What a graceful way to handle a broken engagement!
While parting ways is never easy, it appears that The Real host is looking to keep a “glass half-full” mentality.
“Right now I am taking time for myself and I’m glad to be back at work with my favorite ladies and the incredible crew of The Real. Life lessons are hard but I’m grateful that I have a platform to share my journey and hopefully encourage, inspire, or just let women know they are not alone and to never give up on finding love. I still believe. I feel so blessed and excited for the new season of The Real and I truly appreciate the support from everyone!”
Our thoughts are with the 3LW alum during this trying time.
Nonetheless, we bet things are about to get “real” on The Real now that the 31-year-old is single again — so be sure to stay tuned for more updates on Adrienne’s life after Lenny.
