Fantasia in Court: I Aborted Antwaun Cook's Baby

by at . Comments

Fantasia Barrino may possess an incredible voice, but she's known more for her scandal-filled personal life than anything else these days.

The latest bombshell to drop from this former American Idol champion arrives courtesy of her recent court testimony, as Fantastia was a witness in boyfriend Antwaun Cook's divorce proceedings against ex-wife Paula yesterday.

Under oath, Barrino reportedly stated she got pregnant by Cook and had an abortion.

In August, Cook admitted he had been sleeping with the singer, but said Fantasia was unaware he was still married.

That was the focus of a line of questioning in front of a Mecklenburg County Court judge yesterday, as Paula Cook's attorney pressed Barrino on whether or not she knew her boyfriend was still living with his wife during their relationship.

Because reporters were barred from the courtroom, it's unknown exactly what exchange led to Fantasia's admission, but multiple sources told Radar Online she confirmed the abortion and said it took place around the time of her summer suicide attempt.

Antwaun and Paula are in court because they were unable to settle on terms of a divorce through private mediation.

Meanwhile, it's still conceivable that Paula could sue Fantasia over the unusual Alienation of Affection law, which North Carolina still has on the books and which states that an abandoned spouse can file lawsuit against the party responsible for the dissolution of a marriage.

I hope Fantasia does the right thing and dump this fool. I do believe that she was set up by two broke, money hungry married people. It's a shame that sucessful single peope have to watch their backs because of this alienation of affection law that is recognized in only 7 states ( 42 states have abolished this law).
This law is crazy. It's so crazy that Utah, which allows this alienation of affection law, also still allows common law marriage, crazy. I hope the best for Fantasia.

First she has an affair then she kills the baby to cover it up.So she commits two grave sins I wish her the best but she will answer to GOD for adultery and the murder of the baby. If our parents acted like this half of us would be dead.

I believe Antwaun and his wife were working together to get money from Fantasia. I truly think they saw an opportunity to make money and researched the laws of North Carolina. She just didn't see him as that type of dog that he was.

This woman and her drama!!! Fantasia pls keep singing and focus on getting together whatever is left of your career. It is sad that you came from rags to riches and you are allowing a man to screw up your name.

There is no way that a woman can date a man for months, and not ***know that he is married, and to think that a married man is who Fantasia chose to bring home knowing that she has a 10 year old daughter,who needs guidance and security in her mother's relationships.
