ATLANTA (LALATE ) – Was Fantasia pregnant with a baby by Antwaun Cook (photos below)? Fantasia Barrino allegedly confessed to an abortion of Cook’s baby during testimony Monday. Fantasia is accused of picking up the married man after she visited his T-Mobile store in Charlotte, NC in 2009. Cook worked at the store in sales at the time.
In January, Fantasia denied any relationship with Cook.
Antwaun’s wife Paula Cook claimed the affair started in August 2009. “Beginning as early as August, 2009 and continuing up until the date of the parties’ separation, Defendant / Husband engaged in behavior that was inconsistent with his marital status and / or responsibilities to Plaintiff / Wife” reads her complaint.
Fantasia initially said that Paula Cook “gratuitously included claims about Fantasia to sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids. The fact that she would seek such publicity in a case involving her children is particularly disgraceful.”
But on Monday, Fantasia took the stand in a North Carolina courtroom. Fantasia was called to give testimony about her affair with Antwaun Cook. This follows months in which critics have said Fantasia has not been consistent in her statements about Antwaun Cook.
“Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly” said a Barrino representative in a news statement last summer. But in November 2009, Barrino denied a relationship with Cook to Honey Magazine. She even added “I’ve never even [met him] before. I think I’d want to be with a guy who’s in the same tax bracket as I am … or higher!”
Now Paula Cook is debating going after Barrino. Barrino’s attorney claims Paula Cook has threatened to sue Barrino.
On Monday, Radar Online claimed that Barrino “admitted she got pregnant by her married lover Antwaun Cook and had an abortion around the time of her failed suicide attempt.” Neither of the parties have yet to confirm that testimony given before a closed courtroom.
Paula Cook has previously claimed that Barrino told her about Antwaun “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.”
