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.
