Fantasia has definitely been out there in negative news land for a minute, from being ridiculed about her struggles of not being the best reader, to her steamy love affair with married Antwaun Cook and their love child, to her money woes, Fanny is finally fighting back.
During a recent interview Fanny gives you a look at what’s going on now, she’s ended her relationship with Mr. Cook, raising her children as a single parent, and making music that best defines how she feels at the time…..therapy for the soul, and best of all she’s working with Missy Elliot for “Without Me”video.

On Her Relationship With Her Ex Antwaun Cook
You only heard what you heard, you only got what you got. But you never got to see that real love and that relationship, that friendship that we had. They kept running with this whole knowledge thing, and she stole somebody from some woman…Well, if everybody really looks at it and goes and does their research, I won that case. So obviously, if I won that case, it never was what they said it was. But once something gets out there, people believe everything they hear, or they just put their own twist, their own spin to it…Regardless of what you say, he’s still my son’s father. I still do love him. No, we’re not together, but he’s still a great father, a great friend, and nobody’s gonna change that.
On Internet Bullying
I sit and I watch these commercials. Especially when I’m home, I watch TV with my kids and I watch Disney. These commercials are about bullying in school and the sad part is the industry and the internet has become another form of bullying. It’s not about the artist anymore. It’s not about the music anymore. It’s just about I want to know what you do on your down time. I want to know who you’re dating. I want to catch you slipping.
It’s not about the music anymore. It’s about what kind of dirt can I dig up, what can I find out about you, where can I find you in the street or in the grocery store and zoom in on that zit that you got from wearing makeup and doing a whole press release and makeup effects your skin, how can I zoom in on that zit and make you look like the ugliest person in the world. Those are the kinds of things I look at and just shake my head. They have made artists unreal. We’re not human anymore. They make us like we don’t have feelings. They make us like we don’t have angry days and sad days. And they totally ignore the music and they focus on things like that. I’m a soul singer so I put my passion into my music. Are you gonna get that or are you just trying to figure out who I’m sleeping with next week?
On being hurt by the Industry
The industry was the main thing that hurt me. It wasn’t really the relationship. It was the world. It was me having to turn on my TV and seeing my name all over CNN, TMZ, all over the blogs, all over radio station. That hurt me the most. Some of the main people that sat and voted for me and said that they loved me, they were fickle. And stuff started happening, and people believed what they wanted to believe. And as far as putting all types of stuff out, that hurt me the most. But the industry hurt me the most…I never understood how someone could love you so much at one point, and then months down the line, everybody is against you, everybody’s trying to make a mockery of you.
Jet Magazine’s Chief Editor Mitzi Miller landed a death blow to Fantasia‘s ego. Fantasia conducted an interview with Jet that was recently published. Fanny was displeased to the fact that Jet decided to use an unflattering image of Fanny for their cover instead of choosing from the several images she provided.
Mitzi shot off a diplomatic public apology to Fantasia and her fans:
“JET magazine is honored to have Fantasia grace the cover of its March issue. It is unfortunate that Fantasia is displeased with the cover selection, however JET stands by its decision. As standard editorial practice, JET consulted with Fantasia’s team, but reserves the right to select the image we deem as most appropriate for JET’s brand and reflective of the cover story sentiment.
JET continues to root for Fantasia’s success and encourages her fans to pick up the new issue.”
but on the back end Mitzi took to her personal Facebook to unmask her true feelings:
“The fact that I wasted an hour of my workday writing a press release to address an issue created by a person who cannot even read it is just… #whyiwannaBahousewife.”
Mitzi’s lack of compassion and respect for others is causing her to eat crow, issuing out more apologies trickled with crocodile tears……all to save face and employment. This is what she had to say to Madame Noire:
“I apologize for the lack of sensitivity shown in my Facebook post. It was a thoughtless comment made during a moment of frustration. It was unprofessional and not representative of the JET mission, which is to uplift. I regret letting my emotions get the best of me. I am truly apologetic.“
Jet Magazine use to represent empowerment to our people but I guess since sales have been declining they are trying their best to stay in publication, and will do anything to remain in existence. They have conformed to eating their young and have become active participants in destroying African Americans who haven’t had the luxury to achieve higher education smh #crabsinabarrel
Fantasia tell em why you mad son tell em why you mad. Fanny is not feeling Jet magazine. Recently they did an interview and they placed her on the cover, however Fantasia provided them with pics and they decided to ditch her most current pictures and use a 10 year old photo that Fanny says doesn’t compliment her in any way fashion and form.
Fantasia is pregnant again, according to the rumor mill. Fanny is having baby #3 and all I can say is God Bless her. Antwuan Cook, babby daddy #2 and possibly #3 has allegedly ran off and found love and comfort with Bad Girls Club cast member Kendra James, they are posting cozy pics of the twosome all over the twittersphere.
So Fantasia decided to post her own pics via Instagram and she’s holding her belly as to say BAM Beotch, …….word to the wise Fanny you should already know women don’t care how many babies a man have, Antwuan left his wife and kids for you, fathered some more kids with you, and moved right along without skipping a beat to the next chick. I guess Antwaun never heard of condoms, nor Aids.
Fantasia a single mom left to raise three kids on her own……….Jesus please grab the wheel.
Fantasia left high and dry, rumor mill says Antwaun is trying hard to get back in the graces of his estranged wife….He made a mistake and wants back in. I wonder does Fantasia have any money left …..just a thought
American Idol Winner Fantasia snatched up a married man, had a baby with him ….hoping and wishing a baby would make him stay, finds out baby daddy cheating on her too, and now she is back down in the dumps. A man will only do what you allow him to do…..Karma is a B*tch
Just one month after Fantasia had a baby with boyfriend Antwaun Cook, a pal close to the former American Idol winner exclusively tells RadarOnline.com 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 RadarOnline.com, 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 RadarOnline.com 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.
Fantasia is living the American Dream she has a beautiful daughter and a handsome bouncing baby boy that she brought into this world yesterday in a North Carolina hospital. She named her Prince Dallas Xavier Barrino. Dallas weighed in at 7lbs, 9 ounces and he was 21 inches long. The baby arrived approximately two weeks ahead of schedule but just in time for Christmas.
“I feel so blessed that my son Dallas Xavier was born healthy, and is a wonderful new addition to our family,” the 27-year old tells People. “I thank all my fans for their well wishes and continued support.”
Antwaun and Fantasia have a blended family, this will be Fantasia’s 2nd and Antwaun’s 3rd. Congratulations to Fantasia and Antwaun, maybe this is the push he needed in order to make Fantasia a doting wife……. Now she can whip herself back in shape for that Mahalia Jackson role.
Fantasia Barrino landed the leading role in the self titled movie Mahalia Jackson. Fantasia and the movie producers have ironed out the details in her contract, however Fantasia left out one small minor (I’m 4 months pregnant) detail. She done went and got Mahalia Jackson’s family in an uproar. How dear Fantasia try to play the role of Mahalia Jackson. Mahalia was a Born Again Believer, A Sanctified Filled With The Holy Ghost Saint, not some floozey, trollip that’s knocked up by a married man, baby # 2 out-of-wedlock. Oh no, that’s not the image they were looking for, nor the character to play Mahalia Jackson.
Fantasia pregnancy has caused some conflicts already, they had to push back the start date wasting time, in other words wasting money, and to top it all off Fantasia has the nerve to ask for a little extra time on the set to breast feed the baby. They knew they was dealing with a Diva , but she has taking it too far. Breast feeding on the set, that’s a hell no why can’t Antwan do that? If a replacement is needed, just in case Fantasia doesn’t honor her contact or the producers find a loop-hole and kick her asz to the curb, poor Fantasia she just can’t catch a break. Who do you think could play the role of Mahalia Jackson? Now remember they have to be pure. Missy Elliot name was tossed around and she might get the part, if it all doesn’t go according to the original plan. Can you see Missy as Mahalia?
