ST LOUIS (LALATE) – The Fantasia Barrino, Antwaun Cook baby birth is expected for today. Fantasia Barrino is in labor with Antwaun Cook’s baby. The American Idol singer entered labor roughly two hours ago, reports claim. Antwaun is still married to his estranged wife, Paula Cook.
Antwaun’s wife Paula Cook claimed Fantasia had an affair with her husband starting 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” Paula Cook claimed in her divorce papers.
In 2009, pictures surfaced online of Antwaun Cook and Barrino dating. But in a Honey Magazine interview at the time, Barrino denied dating Cook at the time. “Yes, [the rumors] were all really cute to me. I guess it was something about a guy from T-Mobile? [Cook was a T-Mobile sales agent in a Charlotte, NC store in November 2009]. Inaccurate. He was hot, but I think I’m looking for my own man. There’s no boo in my life, I’m married to my career.”
Barrino went on to claim she didn’t even know Antwaun. Barrino told Honey that she had never even met Cook before. “Right now I’m not really focused on a boyfriend; we all know what happens when you get them … As a matter of fact, 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!”
Fantasia would later say that she was open book her fans. “Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly” said a Barrino representative in 2010.
Cook and Barrino previously were set to have a baby. Radar Online claimed that Barrino previously “admitted she got pregnant by her married lover Antwaun Cook and had an abortion around the time of her failed suicide attempt.”
