Don’t mess with the Kardashians! This may be something Rob Kardashian’s ex, Adrienne Bailon is learning the hard way.
The former Disney star dated the Dancing With the Stars contestant from 2007-2009, and now that he’s having some personal problems, she’s still getting asked about the relationship to this day. But this time, in an interview with Latina Magazine, Adrienne got real.
“To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and my career,” she told the mag. “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.'”
And while the stigma still seems to be that Adrienne was at fault in the breakup, she ranted that that’s far from the truth. “It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me, and it always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?'” she explained. “Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’ And, in my situation, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh my God! I made a mistake!’ He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that, to me, was so disloyal.”
Rob’s big sis Kim Kardashian caught wind of the interview, and took to Twitter to give the Cheetah Girl some harsh words of her own. “Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian,” she wrote. “So sad when people try to kick my brother when he is down
Khloe Kardashian also came to her brother’s defense. Aside from just retweeting Kim’s messages, she wrote, of Adrienne, “thought her and I were cool SMH.”
