They're just about to walk down the aisle, but it seems as Israel Houghton and Adrienne Bailon just had a wrench thrown in their relationship as the gospel singer is now being used by the Texas State Attorney General. He allegedly had two love children while still married to his wife of 20 years, and they're forcing him to pay up.
According to Bossip, The Texas State Attorney General's Child Support Division demanded in court documents that he immediately start paying both back and current child support for both children: Kingston, 4, and Khristian, 2. He's also required to cough up the money for their medical expenses and health insurance.
The court is really digging to make sure they find out exactly how much he owes as they are requiring that he provide his tax returns, checkings and savings accounts statements, 401K information, proof of health insurance coverage and income history.
If he chooses not to pay or ignores their request, the Attorney General's office has liberty to garnish his wages to cover his sons' needs.
According to Texas' top cop's office, there is proof that Houghton is the father of the older of the sons, Kingston. He even admitted that he is his father. However, the attorney general said the court is yet to determine whether he is the father of Khristian. The lawsuit shows, however, that both children have his last name.
Houghton is set to appear in Harris County Court in December. If he fails to appear, the judge can issue a default order.
