If both life partners have the same profession, their life becomes easier and the couple tends to spend whole life together with fewer complications. I used to believe in this until I came to know about the life of American Gospel singer Meleasa Houghton and American Christian music singer Israel Houghton.
They both were happily married and also having children together until one day, their marriage came to an end with a divorce. But it didn’t happen overnight.
The married life of couple going smoothly with three children, Mariah, Israel II, and Milan Lily. The couple spent 20 years together but their marriage ended in the year 2016.
Meleasa Houghton came to know about the sin of her husband via Facebook post updated by her husband on 22 February 2016. In which he admitted of cheating on his wife and asked for forgiveness from his fans, friends, and family.
That Facebook post is not online but you can read the post in a below-added screenshot.
It requires great courage to go public with the personal information and apologize for the mistakes that a person has done. Israel Houghton has done that. But does this mean he deserves an instant apology or something like that? I don’t think so.
As this post went online the fans and followers wanted to know one thing and one thing only, the reason behind all this. Many people started to accuse Adrienne Bailon for the breakage of the sweet home of Houghton family.
Bailon was the co-host of Israel at that time, for the show The Real. Then Israel Houghton explained the situation by following words.
It deeply saddens me that an innocent party would be dragged into this situation that I have taken personal responsibility for. Adrienne is a woman of integrity and character. Most of all she is a true friend, and she should not be blamed for my past indiscretions.
According to RadarOnline.com, Israel Houghton was suspended from his position as a minister at Joel Osteen‘s Texas super-church. He has worked there as a minister and worshiper for consecutive five years.
He got suspended because of his sin of cheating on his wife. A rep from the Lakewood Church told following.
Lakewood Church is not at liberty to discuss publicly any details regarding Israel’s personal situation, but stands ready to provide Israel with spiritual counseling and guidance should he choose to seek it.
Later in 2016, the shocking fact was revealed that Israel has two children named Kingston and Khristian out of his marriage. Name of the mother of those children is DeVawn Moreno.
