Fantasia's boyfriend Antwaun Cook was legally separated earlier than wife claimed, judge reportedly rules

Fantasia Barrino Fantasia Barrino may have scored a legal break in the form of a judge's ruling in favor of onetime boyfriend Antwaun Cook regarding when he legally separated from his wife, TheYBF reported Wednesday. 

Antwaun was separated from wife Paula Cook as of Sept. 14, 2009, a North Carolina judge has determined. In filing for divorce, Paula had claimed she and Antwaun were together until June 2010, and had therefore targeted the "American Idol" winner as a homewrecker. Adultery is still a crime in North Carolina.

TheYBF, which first broke news of Fantasia's relationship with a "technically married man," cited Radar Online, which previously reported the singer had admitted on the stand that she'd been pregnant by Cook, but had terminated the pregnancy.

TheYBF exclusively reported Fantasia's relationship with Cook in November 2009, around the time she showed up in pictures with his name tattooed on her chest. According to the blog, the two met the second week of August 2009, while he was still living with his wife and two kids.

Fantasia attempted suicide on Aug. 9, 2010. That event and interaction with Antwaun were captured for her VH1 reality show, "Fantasia for Real."

Paula Cook was just going after Fantasia's money. End of story.

thats all that lady just wanted fantasia money

@i'm surprised at the judge's ruling. from the get go when Fant was spotted with antwn last summer it was known he was married. there is no 'technically married'. if antwan was separated why didnt he file and make it legit. he was still living with paula & their sons!

@ ras & jay: why do you say Paula is going after Fant's $?Fant started this all by going after a married man. 2 weeks after she met him she had tattooed Antwan's name on his shoulder. Fant was wrong. I feel she even knew this and that is why she aborted her/antwan's baby and attemped suicide//

Paula is after the money. Paula and her husband was separated. They were not together. Apparently Antwaun Cook was moving on and Paula wasn't. The fat lady hadn't sung her song but she was surly warming up.
