Fantasia Barrino claims that when she started a relationship with the father of her second child, Antwaun Cook, he had already separated from his wife. Unfortunately for Fantasia, RadarOnline.com is reporting that documents that say otherwise have surfaced.
According to RadarOnline.com, Paula Cook, Antwaun’s estranged wife, filed documents in court accusing her husband of having a “covert adulterous affair” with the American Idol star in August 2009. Both Fantasia and Antwaun have emphatically denied that they had an affair before Antwaun was sepaarted.
In January 2010, photos of Fantasia and Antwaun enjoying what looked like a romantic Barbados vacation were splashed across the media. When the two love birds were spotted in Barbados, it was six months before Antwaun admitted to being separated from his wife, a claim he made in court documents that were filed in North Carolina.
The documents state:
“The parties consent and agree that Palintiff [Paula] and Defendant [Antwaun] are husband and wife having been lawfully married to each other on October 1, 2005 and separated on June 16, 2010.”
By acknowledging that he was not separated from his wife until June 2010, Antwaun has inadvertently admitted that when he was seen in Barbados in January that same year, with Fantasia, he was being unfaithful to his wife.
In earlier court proceedings, 28 year old Fantasia admitted that she had had an abortion around the same time that she tried to end her life and ended up in the hospital. Her suicide attempt was highly publicized as was her return to the spotlight, supposedly having recovered from her troubles.
Fantasia went on to fall pregnant again and gave birth to a baby boy, fathered by Antwaun.
In light of Antwaun admitting that he cheated on his wife, his wife is now well within her rights to sue Fantasia for Alienation of Affection. In North Carolina, one spouse can sue a third party if they can reasonably prove that that person “alienated” the affections of one spouse from the other.
In North Carolina, an unnamed wife was jilted by her husband and just last year, a judge ordered that the third party pay her $30 million and in another similar case, a year before that, another jilted spouse was awarded $5.9 million.
