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."

Fantasia we all make mistakes and nobody is perfect. I understand what you are going through. Just know that you are not alone. The world loves you. Stay strong. I know you can do it. You have the strength and the power to "bounce back" from anything. Keep faith and everything is gonna be alright.

Fantasia, Fantasia, Fantasia! Girl, what were you thinking? You have a beautiful daughter, that's enough alone to live for. Married men lie, rather it's to their mistress or wife. I am married and have been in awful heartbreaking situations, but I will never take my life. No man is worth your life.I mean nooooooooo man. Get back out there, do your thang girl.Live for God, you and your daughter. You are talented. Most beautiful voice I have heard. You're talented and pretty. Stay grounded in God. The right man will come your way. Don't look for him. Let God send him to you. One thing we talked about in Sunday School Sunday......... I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me... take that with you forever..... I love you and God does too.....

Fantasia you knew that this man was still married and that should have been enough to make you back away. If you are the christian woman you claim to be. Cut the crap !

Fantasia, repent and return back to the Lord, being suicidal is a psychotic behavior, and giving yourself a bad name is simply stupid

Fantasia, God has a much bigger plan and purpose for your life than you know now. One that can bless and encourage many, so let go of the things that are pulling you from the destiny He has for you. Begin to seek Him and he will reveal that plan and purpose to you. Your life will bless many, but you have to stay in His will. He loves you and has better for you. I am praying for you.
