RadarOnline reports that during an appearance before a judge in the Mecklenburg County Court, Fantasia Barrino, winner of Season 3 of Fox’s American Idol, admitted that she not only conceived a child with her ex-boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, who was married at the time, but also had an abortion shortly before her August suicide attempt. Keep reading for the shocking details.
The 26-year-old singer made her explosive confession before a judge in the state of North Carolina on Monday, during her ex-lover, Antwaun Cook’s divorce proceedings with his ex-wife, Paula.
According to multiple sources, including those in the Cook family, Fantasia acknowledged that she did, in fact, have a relationship with Antwaun that lasted “off and on for about 11 months.”
Upon questioning about alleged hotel hookups that took place just days after the two met, Fantasia insists she was under the impression that Cook and his wife were separated at the time. But sources say, “Paula’s lawyer is arguing that they got the room because she [Fantasia] knew he was still married.”
Rumors of Fantasia’s scandalous affair were first reported when the singer had the name “Cook” tattooed on her collarbone. In August, Fantasia attempted to commit suicide by overdosing on aspirin after reading a court complaint filed by Antwaun’s ex-wife that referred to her as a “home wrecker.”
Sources say that it was also around this time that Fantasia had an abortion.
In a 12-hour long mediation session between the two parties on November 1, Fantasia and Paula failed to settle the their dispute, and Paula is considering suing the singer over the Alienation and Affection law, which allows an abandoned spouse to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for the failure of their marriage.
The Alienation and Affection law is only recognized by seven states in the U.S.
