Israel Houghton clarifies that Texas is not suing him for back child support

Christian music singer-songwriter Israel Houghton, 45, denied claims he was being sued by the Texas Attorney General’s Office for not paying child support for his two children. Houghton is now engaged to recording artist Adrienne Bailon, 33.

Sources privy to the matter said Houghton always goes “above and beyond” to take care of his children and confirmed Houghton’s ex did not file any lawsuit implicating him of trying to neglect his parental duties. Jojo Pada, Houghton’s representative, said the rumor, which was first reported by entertainment news network Bossip, was “inaccurate and misleading.” Further, the case that the Texas Attorney General’s Office planned to file against Houghton had nothing to do with child support. Pada added, “Mr. Houghton has and continues to provide financial support for the children at issue. Nothing in the filing by the Texas State Attorney General states or alleges otherwise.”
