Israel Houghton: Rep Says Texas is Not Suing Him for Back Child Support

*We previously reported that Adrienne Bailon’s fiancé Israel Houghton was being sued by the Texas State Attorney General for back and current child support for his two love children. Sources close to the situation say that he always goes “above and beyond” to take care of his children, and that the lawsuit was not filed by his ex.

BOSSIP was the first to break the news about Israel’s alleged child support drama with the state, but now, a Houghton rep, Jojo Pada of Ignition PR,  says BOSSIP’s article “was inaccurate and misleading,” and that “the case and filing by the Texas State Attorney General has absolutely nothing to do with child support.

The rep adds:

“Mr. Houghton has and continues to provide financial support for the children at issue. Nothing in the filing by the Texas State Attorney General states or alleges otherwise.  Thus, the statements in the original article, that the Attorney General “has sued the gospel singer to force him to pay for the upkeep” of the children, and that the “attorney general demanded in court papers recently that Houghton start paying both back and current child support,” are  totally false.”

Houghton has two children born out of wedlock during his 20-year marriage to his first wife — the one he allegedly left for “The Real” host Adrienne Bailon.

Speaking to Angie Martinez on her radio show about the constant gossip surrounding their relationship, Bailon said, “I’m getting (ready) to marry someone I’m really excited about. I’ve embraced all of that.”

She also addressed blogs that post “half-truths and lies” about her.

“They can’t stop, it’s one after the other. I hate that blogs don’t have journalistic integrity, and I hate that our audience right now doesn’t know that,” she says. “There’s constant half-truths and full lies.”
