(LOS ANGELES) — One thing’s for sure, Kim Kardashian is protective over her only brother, Rob. After his ex-girlfriend, Adrienne Bailon blasted him in a Latina magazine interview, Kim decided to fight back.
Bailon, who dated Rob from 2007 to 2009 and appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, said in the magazine that being “stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. 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.”
Kim spat back Wednesday, tweeting: “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.”
Bailon also said in Latina that people still aren’t sure why her and Rob broke up. “It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me,” Bailon clarified. “It always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?’ 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.'”
Bailon said she’s now happily dating Roc Nation executive Lenny Santiago, whom she’s been with for five years. The Real co-host added that she’s even considering marrying him.
“If by some miracle we started taping The Real in New York tomorrow, I’d marry him, like, right now,” she told Latina. “I want a family. I see my sister and she’s on her second baby, and I’m like, That’s success. Having a family — I can’t wait for that.”
The Real returns on Sept. 15.
