Fantasia Barrino just had a baby with shady boyfriend Antwaun Cook, but he's already running around, according to reports ... with his estranged wife.

According to insiders, Antwaun regrets giving up on Paula Cook and their two kids and while Paula is very hurt, relations are thawing between them.

Possibly while naked, we're saying.

"Paula and Antwaun both ended up at Club RE:Public in Charlotte over the weekend and things got a little cozy between the two," the source said.

"I don't know where Fantasia was, but she definitely wasn't in the club where they were! Antwaun was shoving his tongue down [Paula's] throat."

The source continued by saying that while Paula was receptive, she did not want to make a scene and was still a little gun-shy with all the PDA.

However, "he told Paula she belongs to him because she's still his wife!"

So according to this story, the home-wrecker, who was also accused of cheating on Fantasia in January, is wrecking a new home with his old one.

Fantasia Barrino is the recent mother of a baby sired by long-time, controversial boyfriend Antwaun Cook. So all must be right for these proud new parents, right? Sadly... wrong.

A friend tells Radar Online that Cook - who allegedly started his relationship with the former American Idol victor while still married - is the same dishonest man he's always been.

"Antwaun has been cheating on Fantasia all along, just like he cheated on his wife with Fantasia," this insider says. "She was silly to think he'd remain faithful... She purposely had this baby with him hoping he'd be a devoted father and boyfriend."

This pal says Cook isn't merely pulling a Tiger Woods, either, banging random cocktail waitresses: he's actually tried to reconcile with his ex-wife!

"He tries to get Paula to take him back all the time, but she wants nothing to do with him," the source claim,, adding that Fantasia turns a "blind eye" to the infidelity.

Barrino and Cook have made headlines for all the wrong reasons for over a year. The former was actually sued by Cook's former wife in late 2010, but a judge decreed that Fantasia was not legally a homewrecker and did not owe any damages.

Fantasia Barrino is not a homewrecker.

This is not just a random, uneducated opinion. This is an actual ruling for a North Carolina judge.

As part of Antwaun Cook's divorce proceedings in North Carolina this week - the same trial that recently forced Fantasia to admit she aborted her lover's baby - a judge found that Antwaun and Paula Cook separated on September 14, 2009.

Paula had claimed the date was June 2010, which prompted accusations of Fantasia stealing her man and possibly even a lawsuit under North Carolina’s unusual Alienation of Affection law.

While there's no official word on future legal proceedings yet, it's hard to imagine Paula having any case against Fantasia in light of this ruling.

Barrino may now return to her tour, which wraps up New Year's Day in St. Louis.

While Fantasia Barrino is out making the media rounds, promoting her new album and explaining her suicide attempt, she may also be having cravings for sushi.

That's because a report in The National Enquirer says the singer is pregnant. The baby daddy? Her married boyfriend Antwaun Cook.

Rocking the Palms

Insiders tell the tabloids that this is what Fantasia has wanted all along. It will ensure she'll end up with the man at the center of a divorce and sex tape scandal.

“She’s about three months along, and it’s definitely Antwaun’s baby,” a family friend says. “Right now she can’t show how happy she is in public - but she’s absolutely thrilled. Fantasia got what she wanted. She feels Antwaun will have to marry her now.”

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.

With Fantasia Barrino having been released from the hospital following her overdose on aspirin this week (manager Brian Dickens says his client "has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans"), celebrity gossip followers are left with one question:

Who, exactly, is Antwaun Cook?

This married man is at the center of the Fantasia drama, as a recent statement from the singer acknowledged an 11-month relationship him, one that definitely included matching tattoos and may have included a sex tape, at least according to Antwaun wife, Paula.

Here's what we can tell readers about Antwaun Cook:

  • He met Fantasia while managing a T-Mobile store in Charlotte.
  • The singer was interested in him because he was not in the music industry. "He's just a regular dude," she told People months ago.
  • He's an East Carolina University graduate and former member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.
  • He obtained his real estate license in 2006 and joined the firm Keller Williams Realty this month.

Despite Fantasia supposed belief that Cook and his wife separated last year, legal documents confirm they only started living apart in June 2010. They also have two kids together.

Barrino could also be in extra trouble due to the location of her residence: North Carolina is one of seven states that allows a party to sue a "home wrecker."

With a cheating scandal and even sex tape rumors floating around her, Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized with a "medical overdose" last night.

According to WCNC.com, the singer was taken to a North Carolina hospital around 9 p.m. with a condition the reports describes as NOT life-threatening.

At the moment, it's unclear whether or not this overdose was intentional.

As we've detailed over the last couple days, a woman named Paula Cook has accused Fantasia of sleeping with her husband. She even alleges that Barrino and Antwaun Cook made a sex tape together.

Through her reps, the former American Idol champion denied responsibility for ruining the Cook's marriage yesterday, though didn't entirely shoot down the affair accusation.

In mid-July, Fantasia abandoned her Twitter account with the following, cryptic message:  Learn How to up lift your People, pray 4 Them, and Not be so quick to Judge and put them Down And: I’m Only Human.

** UPDATE: Fantasia's rep has released the following statement on this incident and the rumored relationship with Antwaun Cook...

Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly.

Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it. She believed him when he told her he and Mrs. Cook separated in the late summer of 2009. She believed Mr. Cook when he told her he lived elsewhere.

He even took her there. One of Mr. Cook’s most redeeming qualities was his complete devotion to his children. Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her.

Is there really a Fantasia sex tape?

Earlier this week, Paula Cole filed for divorce from her husband and cited his affair with the former American Idol champion as the basis for their break-up. In court documents, she even claimed Fantasia and Antwaun Cook "recorded their illicit activity."

In other words: they went all Kim and Ray J on each other!

Now, through her reps, Barrino is speaking out against the allegations - and sort of, kind of, partially denying them.

Would you tape yourself hitting this? Possibly, if you're Antwaun Cook.

Fantasia's manager, Brian Dickens, has released a statement that says his client is "certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of the Cook's marriage." It also reads:

"Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges. Fantasia's faith in God, herself and family remain as strong as ever."

Speaking to TMZ, meanwhile, Fantasia's lawyer grew even harsher. Said Gena Morris: "Mrs. Cook gratuitously included claims about Fantasia to sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids."

THG is making no judgment, nor are we taking a side. But there's not actually a denial of relations between Barrino and Cook anywhere in here from Fantasia's team, is there?

Fantasia Barrino received solid reviews for starring turn on Broadway in The Color Purple.

But if new allegations prove correct, this won't be the singer's most memorable performance.

According to court documents filed by a woman named Paula Cook, the former American Idol champion carried on an affair with Cook's husband - and even made a sex tape with him!

North Carolina television station WCNC uncovered the divorce papers, filed by Cook, which demand child support payments from estranged husband Antwaun and cite a relationship between him and Fantasia. Paula states the two started sleeping with each other in August 2009.

Paula goes on to write: "Throughout the course of their adulterous affair... Defendant/Husband and Ms. Barrino have at times recorded their illicit activity."

She also claims that Fantasia once called her on the phone and taunted: "He don’t want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you'll know how to keep him. That's why he is here with me."

Rumors of an affair between Barrino and Antwaun Cook first surfaced late last year. They were the latest in a series of personal mishaps for the star, who has faced numerous financial problems, including foreclosure.

On the plus, side, though, if a sex tape truly exists, she can peddle the heck out of it and make millions. Just call Montana Fishburne for advice, Fantasia.

Take comfort, Taylor Hicks. You are no longer the least succesful American Idol champion of all-time.

Following her third season victory on the country's top-rated program, Fantasia Barrino has seen her life spiral downward. She starred in The Color Purple on Broadway, but recently faced foreclosure on her home, along with general financial problems.

Now, reports indicate that Fantasia's personal life has grown even messier.

According to Star, Barrino is living with Antwaun Cook, a married father of two that left his wife to be with her. She met the former college football player in August and sources say he abandoned his young sons to move into Fantasio's Charlotte mansion.

“I’m not going to deny that the word ‘homewrecker’ is floating around,” said a friend of the singer's.

Reportedly, Fantasia has even tattooed Antwaun name on her shoulder, always a good idea in any relationship. Those decisions never come back to haunt those that make them.
