Joel Osteen’s worship leader frolics on beach with Adrienne Bailon

Former Disney Cheetah Girl, Adrienne Bailon and Grammy-winning gospel singer Israel Houghton, were spotted on the beach in Tulum, Mexico, prompting fans to comment on the circumstances (and the surprise) of the situation.

Bailon was recently in Atlanta at Red Pepper Taqueria promoting her newish BET show, “The Real with castmate Tamar Braxton.

Bailon and Houghton met several years ago while working on the film, “I’m in Love with a Church Girl,” starring Bailon, rapper Ja-Rule and co-executive produced by Houghton.

In September, Bailon, who once dated Rob Kardashian, announced on an episode of “The Real” that she had ended her engagement with Lenny Santiago, an executive at Roc Nation.

In February, Houghton, worship leader at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, announced the end of his 20-year marriage to Meleasa Houghton. He wrote to fans on Facebook telling them he had failed and sinned in his marriage several years ago.

“Although we tried, the challenges in our relationship have proven too much to overcome. We have always handled our family and ministry with grace and generosity toward others, discretion, and privacy,” said the post.

Now TMZ has captured images of the happy couple enjoying a little fun in the sun.

And I did look it up and they didn't go to a religious college or got a ministry degree , de de de ah duh, and the catholic church is the oldest Christian church , and have started shelters, they have helped people out financially, do your education and read up on how much the catholic church has done good in many ways, no matter what your religion is, it is true, the catholic and united Methodist church do more than any other churches for charity and giving back.

Typical holy rollers what's ok for them to do is not appropriate for the rest of us to do !! Osteen isn't even a real preacher look it up , but yet him and creflo dollar needs mansion's, private jets, lavish clothing , jewelry, vacations, and these so called megachurches are hypocrites and should pay taxes!!! Only the enormous churches should pay !! But Osteen, and others with their big churches dont care about anyone else bit there selves!!!

You might want to do some research. All the money that comes in from the church stays in the church. His income comes from the sales of his books. What is wrong with making a living from motivating people to better themselves? Do you think Zig Ziglar is a hypocrite? The Catholic Church is one of the richest organizations in the world. This man has helped so many people. You might want to listen to him for a minute might help with that judgement issue of yours.

It's crazy how the AJC turns this into an attack against Joel Osteen's ministry!!!! Anything to discredit men of God!!! However it's an attempt to distract people from his ministry which is ultimately is the Word of God! Don't fall for it... Those are two adults on vacation.

You should really know what you are speaking about before commenting. Joel does not receive income from the church. It's good to know that some people don't rely solely on entertainment media networks to form our opinions.

My point was just to express how interesting it was for them to bring Joel Osteen into this story.

Philip Creviston yes! yes! yes! Best reply I've seen. Let's all follow a "man of the cloth" who pick's and chooses what works for his best interests, and forget's parts of "scripture" which was written by a man, and re-written by a king to fit his idealisms. Lol, I'll stick to Dan Brown and Michael Connolly for my fiction.
