The 30-year-old singer and actress dated the reality star from 2007 to 2009, and got his name tattooed on her butt during the relationship. Kardashian chose to emblazon her name across his ribcage, and has since gotten the tattoo removed.
Bailon referred to her ink as the "ratchet-iest booty tattoo" last year on The Real, and bemoaned it as an "awful," "very bad decision." She has attempted to remove it on two previous occasions without result, but she tells Us Weekly a new technology called PicoSure may prove successful.
"I have not been in a relationship with Rob for six years, and I've been with my current boyfriend, [Roc Nation's Lenny S.], for five years. I think it's time to remove it," she asserts. "I think it's always been time, but there wasn't a procedure that I was sure would not only remove it properly but also not leave me with a worse situation than I started with."
"I'm so excited, you don't understand," she shares. "The other day I ran across some picture of myself in a bathing suit that had Brazilian high-cut bottoms, pre-Rob tattoo, and I couldn't wait to wear those again because they looked so cute."
The singer qualified she and Kardashian are still "super cool with each other," and that she was "genuinely in love with him" when she chose to get the tattoo.
