Adrienne Bailon's Husband's Child Support Case Takes an Unexpected Turn

Good news for the singer.

Good news for Israel Houghton.

After being sued back in June by the Texas State Attorney General's Child Support Division for alleged child support issues, the gospel singer is now without worry as the case has been thrown out.

The case was filed to determine how much child support he would be required to pay for two children he was said to have fathered outisde of his marriage to his ex-wife, Meleasa Houghton

The two children's mother, DeVawn Moreno, reportedly explained to Bossip exactly why the case was dismissed.

"The suit was dropped because of misleading information," she said in an email. "Our children are well taken care of as it always has been."

The site reports that reps for the state's highest law enforcement office appeared in Harris County family Court on December 6 for the hearing. It was then that they requested that the judge list the case as "nonsuited," meaning they not longer sought to move forward with the case. Houghton did not appear for the hearing.

Houghton's lawyers also alleged that their client already supports the kids financially and was never even served with a lawsuit to begin with.
