The 31-year-old singer, who revealed in September that she and longtime boyfriend Lenny Santiago had called off their engagement, addressed the recent speculation surrounding her dating life, and more specifically, the rumors claiming she and the 28-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star have gotten back together.
“I think he’s a great guy and I always wish him well, but the rumors are going to go crazy,” the former Cheetah Girl told reporters at the Latina magazine Hot List party on Tuesday night at The London West Hollywood.
She added of the recent reports, “It is what it is.”
Bailon and Kardashian broke up in 2009 after two years of dating. Last year, the Real co-host sparked a feud with the famous family when she said that she regrets any association with them.
“To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career,” Adrienne told Latina for the mag’s September 2014 issue. “I probably realized that too late—not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show. At the time, I didn’t think anyone would even care. To this day, people will still say, ‘You ruined Rob’s life!’ and I’ll think, Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him.”
After receiving backlash from Rob and his sisters, the actress changed her tune in an interview with E! News.
“I never meant any harm with anything I said,” she insisted, later adding, “I think they’re amazing people. For me, I just didn’t want to be known as anyone’s girlfriend. That could have been anyone’s girlfriend for that matter. I wanted to be known for the hard work I’ve been doing since I was 15 years old.”
