Adrienne Bailon the 5th member of the hit show ‘The Real‘ announced that she broke off an engagement to her boyfriend of six years, music executive Lenny Santiago. Adrienne is a devout Christian girl who makes no secret of her faith commitment.
Bailon originally surprised her The Real co-hosts with the announcement (as well as the ring), and explained how the engagement went down. Apparently, Santiago “convinced” Bailon not to stay in one night and to go out to dinner with him and her family. When they got to the restaurant, however, it was empty, and Santiago gave a sweet speech to Bailon’s parents about how much he loves her before popping the question — with a box of carrots. When Bailon least expected it, however, Santiago presented the ring…and the rest is history.
Now, she is faced with taking her broken engagement to God. Here is what she said in a recent interview to The Christian Post:
‘It’s so funny because in that moment you think you’re going to die, you’re like ‘Oh my God, how am I going to live without this person.’ In those moments, cling to God and build your relationship with God. God gives you peace in a situation that’s meant for you. I feel like the moment that you don’t feel peace, you’re not where you should be. Being in a relationship that doesn’t give you peace, that makes you not want to sleep at night, that makes you want to go through their phone and all of those things … that’s not God’s perfect plan for your life.’
