Adrienne Bailon, the 29-year-old entertainer and co-host of "The Real" talk show, recently revealed how she broke free from ex-boyfriend and reality television star Rob Kardashian.
Bailon and Kardashian, 26, dated from 2007 to 2009. In a previous episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" three years ago, Kardashian admitted that he was not faithful to Bailon while they were in a relationship.
Bailon revealed the details about her breakup from Kardashian on her show "The Real" recently.
"Obviously America saw one of my breakups pan out on television, but you didn't see how it really went down. I know that I was asked... Rob and I when we broke up we were like we're not going to talk about it," Bailon said on the talk show. "It's private. We're going to keep it to ourselves. All good..."
Bailon admitted that some people expected her to speak negatively about her ex-boyfriend, which she never wanted to do.
"...I think people thought because I was cheated on that I would go out and be like 'he cheated on me.' Because honestly I was embarrassed," she said. "Pretty much I was like I don't want nothing to do with you, keep it pushing."
However Bailon admitted that Kardashian was not ready to let the relationship go. He shared an email that she wrote him on the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reality television series.
"Pretty much he read an email from me out loud on the show. The email was that he had been calling me non-stop to get back with me and I guess at this point this was my breakup letter to him," Bailon admitted. "Now what all of y'all thought was that it was written by my boyfriend. It was not written by a boyfriend."
The host explained why she was dishonest at the time.
"That was written by me and my girl sitting on a sofa one day deciding to ourselves 'well how do we make him stop calling me?' And we thought well the only way to make this guy stop calling me is if he thinks I have someone new," Bailon admitted. "If he thinks I have a new man and this new man is writing a letter like 'I need you to stay out of our lives... we've moved on' that he would get the point. Like move on. So that's what we did, he put it on t.v."
A few weeks ago it seemed Kardashian was still reminiscing about Bailon. He posted an old photograph of the pair during happier times with his two younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner.
In the photograph, Kardashian is embracing Bailon who is smiling happily while looking at her cell phone.
"Me chillin with some of my shorties way back when," the caption to Kardashian's Instagram image of Bailon reads.
