Fantasia Barrino is denying allegations that she had an affair with a married man. The Season 3 American Idol winner issued a statement after Antwaun Cook’s soon-to-be ex-wife accused her of stealing her husband in her divorce filing.
“Fantasia is certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of [their] marriage,” her manager, Brian Dickens, said in a statement released this afternoon.
The allegations were made by Paula Cook in court documents filed last week. The documents allege that Barrino and Antwaun Cook began an adulterous affair in 2009.
Is Fantastia a homewrecker or is it a media ploy?
Barrino’s lawyers are firing back claiming that Ms. Cook is only making the allegations to garner media attention to assist her in her divorce action.
“Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges,” says her manager.
Paula and Antwaun Cook have been married since 2005 and separated earlier this year.
