This week Fantasia Barrino tried to end it all. The American Idol singer was apparently so upset about allegations from her on-again-off again (married) boyfriend’s wife that she took a non-fatal mix of aspirin and sleeping aids. The lawsuit that makes bold claims about the two has taken a toll not just on her boyfriend’s family but on Fantasia herself. She “is heartbroken” and “was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention.” The man behind all the drama? Antwaun Cook. So who Antwaun Cook? Here are nine things about him you may not have known.
Antwaun Cook lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Antwaun was a T-Mobile salesmen and is now in management with the company.
He also has a real estate license and just became a Keller Williams Realtor this month. He also dabbles in real estate investing.

He has two sons named Christian and Jackson and he is “completely devoted to them.”
In 2001 Antwaun graduated from East Carolina University with a BA in business.
