(LOS ANGELES) — After Kim Kardashian took Adrienne Bailon to task for mentioning her ex Rob Kardashian and how the family’s famous name may have hurt her career, the singer and current co-host of The Real responded on Instagram.
First, Kim Kardashian, 33, tweeted on Wednesday, “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 posted a picture of a message Thursday, saying “Fame and a Career are two different things. I’ve always had a career. I have been working hard since I was 15 years old. Being someone’s ‘girlfriend’ was never what I wanted to be famous for.”
She continued, “What makes you ‘famous’ isn’t always what you want to be ‘labeled’ as, or known for. If anyone should understand that… It should be you.I also stated in the article that none of this would have stopped me from being in love and being in that relationship. I just would have gone about it differently. You can love someone just as much in private. We all learn from our first loves.”
She hashtagged the post, “GodBless.”
The comments that started this back and forth were Bailon’s in Latina magazine that read, “To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career.”
Kim Kardashian told her to “LetItGoooooLetItGoooooo.”
Bailon and Rob Kardashian dated from 2007 to 2009.
