Antwaun Cook Admits Fantasia Affair, Defends Singer

by at . Comments

Antwaun Cook has finally spoken out about his relationship with Fantasia Barrino.

Or at least Cooke's lawyer has done so on her client's behalf. In a statement released today, Nicole Sodoma writes that Cook wants to "address the criticism and judgment he has received" for cheating on his wife with the American Idol champion.

"He knew Fantasia Barrino, but the failure of his marriage can in no way be blamed on anyone except the two people that were a part of the union – Paula and Antwaun," the statement reads.

Paula Cook brought this affair to light when she filed court documents earlier this month alleging a sex tape exists between her husband and Fantasia.

Cooks admit to dating Barrino "on and off for about 11 months," but says Fantasia was under the impression his marriage was over during this time.

"[Paula and Antwaun] expected their marriage to stand the test of time," said Sodoma. "Unfortunately, like many marriages, it did not turn out as planned. In late summer 2009, after years of discussion, the parties separated with the intention of no longer being married."

Fantasia recently thanked fans for their support and confirmed a series of promotional appearances over the next few weeks on behalf of her new album.
