Fantasia Barrino

Named in

Divorce/Sex Tape Scandal

8/7/2010 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Court documents filed this week by a woman in North Carolina allege her husband had an affair with former "American Idol" champ Fantasia Barrino -- and that the two made a sex tape.

According to docs obtained by WCNC, Paula Cook filed for child support against her estranged husband Antwaun Cook last week and cited an alleged affair between Cook and Barrino. She claims the two met at a T-Mobile store and, beginning in August 2009, began their "covert adulterous affair."

Cook goes on to claim, "Throughout the course of their adulterous affair ... Defendant/Husband and Ms. Barrino have at times recorded their illicit activity."

Rumors of an affair between Barrino and Cook have been around for months -- and Barrino has always denied them.

Calls to Fantasia's management were not immediately returned.

This situation is totally betwen Mr. and Mrs. and Fantasia. All of these negative comments about Fantasia are rude, hateful and ridiculous. The news media plays a big part in making famous people lives and open book. These people deserve to have some privacy and deserve respect also! I don't think the folks with the negative comments would like it if the shoe was on the other foot. I like Fantasia and definitely will keep her in my parayers. I I could say one thing to her, it would be, "let your haters be your motivaters!

Come on people the man worked at the T moble shop and it is nothing wrong working there he is nice looking but look at the whole picture. She is in a state were you can sue the other women in a divorce claim.The on again off relationship one of the times when it was off he told his wife a good idea to sue her and get the money HOW DID THE WIFE SEE THE TAPES. I am sure this is not the first time he cheated on his wife this just the first time he cheated with some one with MONEY this there way to a rich life. What is he saying he could clear all this up just by saying he lied to Fantasia.But it is more to this story CHECK THERE CREDIT REPORT. Keep your head held high Fantisia

Fantasia's family help Fantasia FIGHT BACK and Fantasia get off your rump and fight back girl,get a dream team of lawyers and oh yeah is it possible that cook dude TRICKED Fantasia,What is if he did show his wife the tapes ALLEGEDLY and all, he had the knowledge about taping and all-POSSIBLE-For it is said that He worked at T-MOBILE, No PUN INTENDED but Fantasia barely learned to read well and very seriously may not of had this knowledge. If he schemed on Fantasia and the Wife was in on it..Can't Fantasia counterSUE. Could the tapes have been secretly taped as a means to blackmail Fantasia-- who knows, but Fantasia's family should look into everything because there is more to this story than the pictures and so called tapes. I SMELL A RAT! There is a REASONABLE DOUBT that something is Fishy here! God Bless U Fantasia. Fantasia could you have been HAD. As in Fooled by this Guy? Now you see who the haters are Actually the same people who bring you up SOME ARE the same people who Love to see you fall. The same people you passed along the way to the top are the same people you meet again on the way to the bottem. It's a circle. There are some people who are your friends for life and you are about to find out who they are, people who stick with you through thick and thin. People who care about you whether you are rich or poor. DON'T BE THE WEAK LINK FANTASIA-- GIRL FIGHT! Just remember that song by "Bobby Womack" the singer-- called "DOWN AND OUT". Just don't give up --ReFocus and "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

Doesn't she get any sympathy, damn. She fell in love with a married man, that happens everyday and the people throwing stones probably have done the same, or known someone who did.
