After six years together and a seven-month engagement, Adrienne Bailon and Lenny Santiago, a Roc Nation exec and manager to Fabolous, have decided to call it quits.

In the latest issue of US Magazine, “The Real” co-host opened up about her recent failed engagement.

“I am, of course, sad that things didn’t go as we planned, but we still remain close friends,” she explained. “Six years is a long time to be together, but we had to make the decision to go with our hearts and not be embarrassed or afraid of change. He absolutely helped make me a better person and I will forever cherish the time we shared together.”

She also explained that she plans to focus on herself and her career for the time being. “Right now I am taking time for myself and I’m glad to be back at work with my favorite ladies and the incredible crew of The Real. Life lessons are hard but I’m grateful that I have a platform to share my journey and hopefully encourage, inspire, or just let women know they are not alone and to never give up on finding love. I still believe. I feel so blessed and excited for the new season of The Real and I truly appreciate the support from everyone!”

We wish Adrienne the best!
