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 she butt ugly? Is it because she don't have traces of white in her? Is her voice butt ugly beacause it has the old soulful sound? If you don't like Fantasia go on like someone else! Don't show signs of jeolousy and you won't be accussed of being. And she obviously has enough education to get her futher than you haters.And get this she has trmendous gift of talent so boo hoo,just hush,hush,silence.Let this beautiful lady do her thang!

Fantasia has been SET UP! The story of the affair between Antwan Cook and Fantasia Barrino has been disclosed a year ago. Photos were taken of the couple, as well as the ANTWAN tattoo that was displayed on Fantasia's lower neck/upper shoulder. Mrs. Cook wasn't aware that the story broke out a year ago? This isn't the Dark Ages. She's NOT living under a rock. It was all over the tabloids. I'm not buying her story. Why opt for a divorce now? I think the goal of Mr and Mrs Cook was to extort money from Fantasia. It's obvious. The sex tape allegations, emails, and texts? Tangible proof for the alien of affection lawsuit in the state of NC. The Cooks have done their homework, and Fantasia has been a mere naive puppet throughout this ordeal.

I guarantee all of you, the Cooks re-marry and unite after Mrs. Cook has been awarded Fantasia's money....

It's been known through friends and colleagues, that Mr. Cook is a con-man

What the hell is wrong with u people??? What does this story have to do with race?? Why is it that everytime they ask for people's comments on these stories people get racist!!!! If you don't have anything to say about the actual story, don't comment!!

And TMZ, why would you post up a comment by someone using "child abuser" as their name!!?? What is wrong with u, Harvey is a lawyer he should know better. Instead of posting his comment, maybe he should be reported!!!
