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.
