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.

Why is it always the woman's fault? The man new he was married with 2 children. Was he playing her for her fame,why did it take so long before his wife filed for a divorce?

I am SOOO disappointed in Fantasia... what are you teaching your daughter? If he's cheating on his wife with you, what makes you think that he won't cheat on you? You reap what you sew! Believe you deserve better and don't settle for less. "Seperated" is NOT divorced!

This man wife is an opportunist! He is also. Fantasia has pure God given talent. Stop all the hating...and to the one who made comments about her singing gospel ha ha. Remember only God can judge. I am praying for her. We don't need to see anyone try to loose their lives because of foolishness.

To Fantasia: Keep your head up no one is perfect but remember that the devil is always lurking in different forms. I know your grandmother is praying and we all know she had a direct line to God...this too shall pass it is a part of your making

I hope Fantasia's lawyer will read this, Fantasia had a movie that has aired on Lifetime and it was telling how Fantasia got raped or something at her High School. allegedly Ok, if this happened like they said then she is VICTIM and this could account for her actions of being easily fooled. She is still a victim and needs help and should check into a facility, just like the rest of the celebrities. She so much wanted someone to love her for her, and she could have felt Raped all over again, when she found that he lied to her as she says. How she says that he told her that he was through with his relationship with his wife and was in love with her -- Fantasia-- I think that is the real reason she attempted suicide, she felt USED and then all the things she has been through made her feel like leaving this world in search of a better world. Fantasias lawyer need to look into this situation of her being raped in the past and how this had a role in her reaching out for love in someone who was as she says not honest with her. She is truly a talented and gifted. Fantasia when you sign the papers for you new Movie, You know they gone surround you with a Movie Deal proposition. I hope that you sit down and tell everything, like how things went at you High School and just because you win American Idol it does not take away what has happened in the past or the future for that matter. Why has not this Cook guy came forth to defend Fantasia. Why has he not at least made some comments or something. Why are all the news stories about Fantasia only. Why is this Cook guy not put on BLAST! TMZ why do you not put his picture up, equal treatment. It is so easy for everyone to put Fantasia's pictures up and one was not so flattering, Mouth all open and all and such NEGATIVITY came by judging her photo but that was cleaned up with better pics. What makes him so special that his picture cannot be put up. WHAT MAKES HIM SO SPECIAL HE CANNOT BE PUT ON BLAST. hmmmmmmm A single pic of him.

How could Fantasia think Mr. Cook was not so "involved" with his wife, and yet Fantasia taunted Mrs. Cook by saying, "He's my man now; he does not want you any more." I would like to ask if Mr. Cook will want Fantasia after Mrs. Cook wins the alienation of affection suit and is awarded everything Fantasia owns???
