Fantasia Barrino’s baby-daddy Antwaun Cook is already fooling around on her

Back in December, Fantasia Barrino gave birth to a baby boy. She gave her newborn son her own name, not the father’s. It’s believed that the father is Antwaun Cook, Fantasia’s long-time married lover who has yet to formally procure a divorce from his wife Paula. This was at least the second time Fantasia had been pregnant with Antwaun’s love child – back in 2010, she said (under oath, appearing in court during Antwaun and Paula’s divorce case) that she had gotten pregnant with Antwaun’s baby, then attempted suicide (by taking aspirin) and then gotten an abortion. Basically, the whole thing was already an enormous, crazy, tragic mess. And it’s just gotten a lot worse. Radar’s sources claim that Antwaun has been fooling around on Fantasia this whole time AND that he’s been trying to get back with Paula.

Just one month after Fantasia had a baby with boyfriend Antwaun Cook, a pal close to the former American Idol winner exclusively tells that he’s been cheating on her — even before she was pregnant!

“Antwaun has been cheating on Fantasia all along, just like he cheated on his wife with Fantasia,” the source said. “She was silly to think he’d remain faithful but it was wishful thinking, I guess. She purposely had this baby with him hoping he’d be a devoted father and boyfriend.”

But the source exclusively tells, it’s not happening. Not only has Antwaun cheated on Fantasia with other women, but he’s even went crawling back to his estranged wife, Paula Cook, asking for another chance.

“He tries to get Paula to take him back all the time, but she wants nothing to do with him,” the source revealed. “Fantasia knows that Antwaun cheats, but she just turns a blind eye hoping for some fairytale turnout.”

As was first to report, Fantasia went into labor on December 12, 2011 in a North Carolina hospital and had son, Dallas, the next day.

Antwaun is currently still married to his estranged wife, Paula — who claims Fantasia and Antwaun began an affair together while she and her husband were trying to patch up their marriage.

Last November, Fantasia testified during a separation hearing between Antwaun and Paula that she had previously been pregnant by him and had an abortion.

“She kept this one to keep him,” the source said. reached out to Fantasia’s manager, who had no comment on the allegations.

Do I feel bad for Fantasia? Eh. I do, a little bit, but mostly because she just gave birth and she’s dealing with all of this crap while her hormones are probably still going crazy. But in general, no, I don’t feel bad for her. Fanny is cray-cray. When she decided she wanted Antwaun, she called Paula and harassed her on the phone. Fanny and Antwaun conducted their affair out in the open, and Fanny wasn’t concerned about the mess at the time. In fact, I suspect she thrives on the drama (or melodrama). It’s all very sad. I’ll save my sympathies for the kids who are caught up in this mess.

    Most shocking story of the year!

  2. brin says:

    Gee, this story sounds soooo familiar.

  3. kazoo says:

    i’m always dumbfounded when women who started seeing a married man are surprised when the dude cheats on them. like, did you think you were special and exempt to his cheating ways?

  4. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    The truth is Fantasia has a hood rat mentality that is bigger than her talent. I am not using my annual Captain Save-a-ho pass for her. She doesn’t deserve it. She has the opportunity of a life time to better her family and give her daughter the life she didn’t get as a child and she blew it. When I think about the talented brothas and sistas in our hoods across America who work hard and try to better themselves only to miss out on that big break, my soul cries.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yeah, it’s only January. Hold onto that pass, like I’m keeping mine. We never know what the rest of the year will bring. ;)

      I’m glad I’m not the only who got the hood-rat vibe from her.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Save-A-Ho Pass, ha! Yup. Such a huge, flippin’ waste. I’ve only seen clips of her show on The Soup, but I’m just thinking of the clip I saw that had her talking about her new ‘friend’ who happened to be married (although I think this was before they started in on doing the buck-nasty) and her aunt was dubious to say the least. I know, because they played the clip of her incredulous ‘Tsk, guuuuurrrl…’ for months. I’m not one of those people who thinks single people and non-single people of opposite sexes can’t be friends, I’ve done it many times and it’s been less than not an issue. I’m no hood rat, though.

      What’s his appeal though? What does he do but screw around on his estranged wife? He’s not famous, he’s probably being kept by her right now, but…this question doesn’t have an answer, forget I asked.

  5. Agnes says:

    So, that surprises no one… I feel bad for the kids, who are the only innocent parties in this mess (and in every such mess).

    Wendy Williams already TOLD her!

    I love it because it’s so dramatic and over the top :) .

    • Asli says:

      LOL! I love how Wendy always knows! Like she knew that Bey’s birthing was going to be all weird and covered up. She always tells it how it is!

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      T-Mobile? And her family blood sucks her? What are they sucking if she hasn’t sung in years? Free Yourself, Fanny, then grow the f*** up.

      • I Choose Me says:

        She has been performing just not at any big name venues. She performed at the St. Kitts Music Fest in June last year.

        Not sorry for this woman at all. She needs a knock upside the head with a clue-by-four.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        Oh, okay. My bad. I’m not her biographer or anything, but it’s not good practice to make assumptions just because I haven’t been paying attention, so I take responsibility for that. Thanks for clearing up my ignorance.

  7. outofafrica says:

    This headline should have come with a big fat DUH!!! Attached 2 it.. She is a mess.. She & leann crimes need 2 sing a duet together about the joys of married men!

  8. MyCatLoves TV says:

    As Nene Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta said “Close your legs to married men!” (And hell has officially frozen over since I actually agree with something said by a “real” housewife.)

  9. Me says:

    In my country, there’s a saying that, “the broom used to sweep one woman out, is usually used on the other woman as well”. I have no sympathies for her whatsoever, only the baby. It’s karma for her. Serves her right!

  10. Dibba says:

    Man, who cares about this chick?!

  11. icravefreshbrains says:

    seems like shes just creating material for another bad lifetime movie.

  12. Stacia says:

    “Fanny is cray-cray” LOL…Love how you sum it all up.

  13. Jezi says:

    Nope, don’t feel bad. I feel for the children. But that’s about it. She wanted him, she got him. This is what she got. Bet Paula is laughing her ass off.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    I feel sorry for the children. I don’t feel sorry for Fantasia.

  15. truthful says:

    she’s a laughing stock, and I am sure folks tried to tell her BUT as usual she did not listen. sad.

    she’s not the first and she won’t be the last. what a waste.

  16. the original bellaluna says:

    Is she really surprised by this? She blew whatever goodwill (from AI) she had left with this whole Antwaun mess.

    Those poor children.

  17. Laura says:

    She looks like a foot.

  18. Jessica says:

    I DO NOT feel sorry for this POS one bit. There is NO reason for an abortion, both of her kids should be taken away from her.

  19. Violet says:

    I feel sorry for her kids, because she is a selfish, crazy b*tch. Getting an abortion and then purposely getting pregnant a few months later? What a despicable and irresponsible thing to do.

    Also, she obviously didn’t get the memo: Once a cheater, always a cheater.

    • Just Lucy, for now. says:

      I agreed 100% With an attempt at suicide and a baby with a serial cheater in an move to make him stay with her, she’s obviously not thinking about her children’s lives and how this behavior will effect them.

  20. Dani says:

    Of course he’s cheating on her. I doubt he’s with her because he loves her.

  21. Just Lucy, for now. says:

    She sounds very immature and at 27, She should’ve been more capable to avoid this mess. I just feel sorry for her kids for having to deal with a mother so irresponsible and selfish when it comes to relationships.

  22. skuddles says:

    What a sad, sorry b*tch to have hooked up with this douchester in the first place. Their entire relationship was heaped in skeeve right from the get go.
