There is apparently another huge twist in the Israel Houghton story! To catch you up, the “Friend of God” singer released a statement last month revealing his divorce from his wife of over 20 years. A few days ago a story surfaced linking Hougton to “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon causing him to release another statement saying that they are indeed a couple but that their relationship is not the reason for his divorce.
Now comes word that Houghton who also served as Worship leader at Joel Osteen’s “Lakewood Church” in Houston has been fired from his position.
Houghton has not issued a statement regarding his employment with the church, however a Lakewood representative did issue this statement:
“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.”
