After saying that she regretted having a tattoo of Rob Kardashian, Adrienne Bailon now reveals the truth behind their breakup in 2010. The former Cheetah Girl star says she lied about having a new boyfriend so the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star would leave her alone.
On a 2010 episode of the E! reality TV series, Rob did read an email from Adrienne's supposed new boyfriend, telling him to stop calling her. Now, she reveals that she made that up with her girl pals.
"I was my own fake boyfriend," she admits while co-hosting "The Real". "What all ya'll thought was that it was written by my boyfriend. It was not written by a boyfriend. That was written by me and my girl sitting on the sofa one day deciding to ourselves, 'Well, how can we make him stop calling me?' "
"I got left alone. I think it worked!" Adrienne exclaims. Despite achieving her goal, she did feel some remorse about her dishonesty as she says, "I felt so bad because at the time there was so many rumors that I was dating [rapper] Fabolous. They actually pinned it on him."
Adrienne and Rob started dating in 2008, and broke up after two years of dating. She dumped him after he admitted to cheating on her. "I was embarrassed and basically said, 'I want nothing to do with you,' " she said.
She previously said that she was in the process of removing Rob tattoo. "It's awful. Ten-letter last name, Kardashian. ... It was sized down so much that it actually started almost looking like a black blob," she said. "Now that is a ratchet tattoo. I made a very bad decision. Don't follow my example."
Rob responded to her diss by posting a picture of her in his arms during their happier day. "Me chillin (sic) with some of my shorties way back when," he captioned the photo which also showed Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
Last year, Rob broke up with girlfriend Rita Ora. He hinted that she cheated on him.
