So sad. Adrienne Bailon has called it quits with her fiance, Lenny Santiago, after six years. The actress and the entertainment exec have confirmed that they have ended their engagement, and Adrienne spoke about it on ‘The Real.’
Adrienne Bailon, 31, will not walk down the aisle with now-ex fiance, Lenny Santiago, 44. The couple had been together for an impressive six years, and are coming off of a seven-month engagement. Adrienne has spoken out on the breakup on the Sept. 16 episode of her talk show The Real, expressing her sadness about the breakup, and the love she still has for Lenny. Watch what she had to say!
“My prayer has always been that in not so great moments, you remind yourself that everything in life happens for a reason, and hopefully it will benefit somebody else, it will help somebody else,” she said. “I know a lot of you guys have been asking me… ‘Where is your ring? Are you still engaged?’ and it’s been a very hard decision for me to make… and I am not engaged anymore.”
Aw, such a bummer, especially considering the way Adrienne spoke about Lenny at the time of their engagement in February. “I am so excited to be marrying my best friend,” she told Us. “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.”
Adrienne previously dated Rob Kardashian back in 2007, and the two broke up publicly in 2009 before Adrienne began dating Lenny. Luckily, Adrienne has a lot of distractions to take her mind off the breakup, including her series, The Real, which you can hear her discuss with us on the HollywoodLife podcast, right here.
We’re wishing Adrienne and Lenny the best during this surely difficult time. Are you sad to see the couple split?
