Fantasia Barrino again is making negative headlines. The “American Idol” winner and Broadway star is named in a North Carolina lawsuit, with Paula Cook claiming Barrino not only engaged in an affair with her husband, Antwaun Cook, but made a sex tape with him.
Mrs. Cook filed the suit to seek child support from her estranged husband, further charging Barrino and Antwaun Cook began their ”covert adulterous affair” in August 2009 — after meeting at a T-Mobile store.
Barrino has denied any romantic involvement with Cook and has not commented on the filing of the lawsuit.
North Carolina is one of seven states with ”home wrecker” laws on the books. However, no lawsuit specifically targeting Barrino has yet been filed.
Along with claiming Barrino and Cook ”recorded their illicit activity,” Paula Cook further claims Barrino told her in a phone conversation, ”He don’t want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you’ll know how to keep him. That’s why he is here with me.”
