Emily B. Claims Fabolous Is NOT Tapping Adrienne Bailon
So "Love & Hip Hop" star Emily Bustamante has finally addressed the elephant in the room that is the popular thought--for good reason--that her on-again off-again man Fabolous is cheating with Adrienne Bailon.
Em and Adrienne are friends and have been for a long time. So Emily claims there just can't be any truth to the rumors. *eyebrows raised* Check out what she has to say inside...
On the heels of Emily finding out her sometime man and baby's daddy, rapper Fabolous, was cheating with castmate Kimbella while Em was pregnant with their son, she's attempting to debunk rumors he's also cheating with Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon.
Adrienne and Fab tend to pop up at all the same event together--sometimes with Emily but usually without--and also seem to be at least a little bit closer than "that's my homeboy/homegirl." Call it woman's intuition or whatever you want. But it's something that more than a couple people have noticed.
So in Emily's new interview with Loop 21, she claims there's no truth to there being a relationship. Why? Because Adrienne has been friends with both Em and Fab for a long time. Since that's always stopped folks from cheating before. And Fab is close to Adrienne's alleged boyfriend we've heard nothing about until this year. Word around the internets this "man" of hers is Lenny S., Fab's manager. How convenient.
Loop 21: On the blogs, we see you with Adrienne Bailon, who was rumored to be messing with Fabolous, your ex. What’s going on there?
Emily B.: I just left from being with her. We’ve been friends for years. We’re all friends. I think that when you see Fab and you see Adrienne, they’re both celebrities so you automatically assume that they’re together, but he’s actually friends with her boyfriend. And I won’t reveal her business. We were always together and that’s how that misconception started, but she is not dating Fab. I actually feel bad for her at this point because she can’t get rid of it, but we laugh at it. She comes to my house on Christmas...
Loop 21: So there’s nothing there?
Emily B.: No! (Laughs)
Loop 21: A lot of women identify with your story. What advice would you give to women who are dealing with trying to break away from an ex?
Emily B.: If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. You have to be strong. You have to love you first. When you go into your relationship know what you want and demand those things from the beginning. Set boundaries and if you do it from the beginning you’ll know if it’s going to work or not. But if you don’t, you’ll end up five, six years down the line like, ‘Well, wait a minute!’ That’s my problem. I always wanted to be cool, ride-or-die. I’m down for him. I wanted to be that chick, but somewhere along the line, I lost who I was and it was all about him. I realized that hmm, maybe this is not right. I had to set some boundaries.
By the way, despite all the independent woman stuff she's going on about in this new season of LAHH, she's already confirmed months ago she's back with Fab.
Believe what you want boo....
