Rob Kardashian Shares Photo of Himself And Adrienne Bailon In Happier Times

The way they were.

Rob Kardashian was presumably feeling nostalgic Thursday when he shared a throwback photo of himself with ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon and his sock models sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner on Instragram.

"Me chillin with some of my shorties way back when," he affectionately captioned the picture, which was likely taken between 2007 and 2009, the years he and Bailon dated.

Bailon has also been reflecting on their two-year relationship, but for a different reason.

During a recent episode of "The Real," a new daytime talk show she is co-hosting, Bailon expressed regret over the decision to have "Robert A. Kardashian" tattooed on her derriere during their courtship.

"It's awful. Ten-letter last name, 'Kardashian.' It's pretty bad. Now that is a ratchet tattoo. I made a very bad decision. Don't follow my example," she said, adding that she is in the process of getting the ink removed. “You can smell your flesh burning, and it’s my ass flesh burning. All bad... Booty tattoos, names of other men: ratchet. Don’t do it!”

Sounds like smart advice to us.
