The former 'American Idol' star has been spotted having a deep conversation with Antwaun Cook at a park near her Charlotte, N.C., home on Friday, August 13.
Fantasia Barrino has met Antwaun Cook, a married man with whom she was accused of having an affair. Fantasia, who was just released from a Charlotte, North Carolina hospital on August 11 following a suicide attempt over a reported sex tape she has with Antwaun, was spotted having a deep conversation with him at a park near her Charlotte, N.C., home on Friday, August 13.
Sitting opposite each other, both Fantasia, who donned a sleeveless animal-print dress, and Antwaun, in his white T-shirt, looked serious while cameras captured the reunion. The meeting was presumably held for Fantasia's VH1 reality show, "Fantasia for Real."
However, one person has voiced his dislike for Fantasia and Antwaun's meeting. When informed that his daughter met Antwan shortly after released from hospital, Fantasia's father Joseph Barrino told Radar Online, "I do not think that can be real, it must be somebody else. I'm very displeased with that relationship because he is a married man and all of that has been discussed with Fantasia."
According to Antwaun's wife, Paula Cook, Fantasia and her husband began romantically involved after the two met in August 2009. Fantasia's manager, Brian Dickens himself admitted the relationship, saying "Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it."
"She believed him when he told her he and Mrs. Cook separated in the later summer of 2009. Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her. Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about 11 months," Brian added. "Fantasia is heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused."
