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.
