"I am, of course, sad that things didn’t go as we planned, but we still remain close friends,” Bailon says, adding:

“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.”

The artist, who famously dated Rob Kardashian from 2007 to 2009, is trying to focus on the positive as a result of this split.

“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,” she says.

"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."
