Adrienne Bailon has decided to end her engagement to fiancé Lenny Santiago.
The former Cheetah Girl, who dated the 44-year-old Roc Nation executive for six years before becoming engaged seven months ago, told Us Weekly in a statement, “I am, of course, sad that things didn’t go as we planned, but we still remain close friends."
The 31-year-old added, "Six years is a long time to be together, but we had to make the decision to go with our hearts and not be embarrassed or afraid of change. He absolutely helped make me a better person and I will forever cherish the time we shared together.”
When she announced her engagement in February, Adrienne expressed how excited she was to "be marrying my best friend." The actress previously had a high-profile relationship with Rob Kardashian from 2007 to 2009.
“Right now I am taking time for myself and I'm glad to be back at work with my favorite ladies and the incredible crew of The Real,” the talk show co-host told the mag.
