Adrienne Bailon, now Adrienne Houghton, is a singer-songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, host and television personality hailing from New York City’s Lower East Side.
Her first claim to fame was acting as the lead singer of successful female R&B trio, 3LW. Their debut 2000 single “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)” quickly became a hit and is considered their signature song; the follow-up self-titled album also found critical and commercial success. After releasing 2 further studio albums, 3LW officially disbanded in 2006.
In the midst of 3LW, she was also involved in Disney’s international phenomenon The Cheetah Girls (for which she is perhaps best known), which she had been a member of since its launch in 2003. The franchise achieved several platinum-selling albums, iconic merchandise and of course, worldwide success as a result of the movie series. Bailon resultantly became an unstoppable force in the industry.
She is also recognized for her highly-publicized relationship with Rob Kardashian between 2007 and 2009, synonymously appearing on the hit reality show he shared with his family, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Bailon also dated (and was briefly engaged to) music executive Lenny Santiago from 2010 to 2015. However, she is currently married to renowned gospel singer Israel Houghton (hence her name change to Adrienne Houghton); they began their relationship in 2016.
Houghton has continued to solidify her career: mainly as a co-host on the Emmy-winning daytime talk show The Real; by releasing her acclaimed sole solo studio Latin-inspired, Christmas-themed album New Tradiciones (in 2017); appearing in and placing third as the Flamingo in the second series of The Masked Singer; her various acting appearances; and owning a vegan handbag line named La Voûte.
