Prior to meeting her husband she was a single parent to two young children and attempted suicide in 2010 while going through a divorce from Antwaun Cook.
Since marrying Taylor, Barrino has been publicly talking about her desire to record gospel music.
Fantasia's manager, Brian Dickens, just released a statement saying the former "American Idol" champ is "certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of the Cook's marriage."The statement goes on to say, "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.
As it turns out, they still aren’t divorced yet, according to Radar. Fantasia made headlines when she got Antwaun’s last name tattooed on her shoulder and first stepped out with the married man, but now that she’s pregnant by him, it’s adding to the heartache for Antwaun’s wife, Paula Cook.
The 27-year-old singer announced her pregnancy over the weekend during her Jacksonville, Florida, concert and although she didn’t say who the father is, Radar can confirm it is in fact Antwaun.
“Antwaun told Paula that Fantasia was pregnant early on,” a source close to the situation told Radar
The singer recently turned one of her concerts in Florida into a worship service in which people came to faith in Christ.
Now there’s word that the father of her baby is Antwaun Cook, the married man she was previously involved whose strained relationship reportedly caused her to take a nearly lethal number of pills.
