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.

she is not the first or last person to be involved in this type of relationship. who really cares? people need to stop calling her a slut and whore...the marriage was already over when he decided to go try someplace else...not her fault. no doubt, he did not tell her (like most married men do)until she got her feelings caught up into him...too late

ALLEGEDLY Fantasia has allegedly said that he was not with his wife, they were Seperated and she is not the cause of the seperation, Also that it's two kids he has NOT four kids. She said. Also about the seperation if this is found to be true, the ALLEGED sex tapes and the pictures of them on a jet ski and all the tatoos and stuff won't matter. He has to have been STOLEN from his wife. Now, all Fantasia gotta do is find this Wifes BOYFRIEND. YEPP because If there was ALLEGEDLY troubles before Fantasia met him it's a done deal. Especially if there MIGHT allegedly be a mystery man involved then Fantasia wins. Thing is all the smart comments Fantasia allegedly said about QUOTE!! HE DON'T WANT YOU, UNQUOTE!! If these comments are true this is MESSY, really MESSY and Fantasia needs a DREAM TEAM of lawyers. Fantasia is not the only person to let her HORMONES do the talking because in the celebrity world it goes on a lot. It just goes on a lot period!

My first time reading or posting here, looks like this site is for the truly ignorant, comments #42, 46, 54 etc. There are a few exceptions...very few. Don't bother to send that password TMZ, I'm gone to find some real news.

I hope Fan's attorneys tell her to avoid public discussions about her relationship with Cook.

A decent woman would N O T put such trash out that will make children targets of jokes later on.

More and more this sounds like a set up. What the hell did Mrs. Cook think was going on when her "husband" was M.I.A. "

She knew. I still cannot understand how she was aware of any tapes.

Fan, you are a celebrity now. Even the old school makes mistakes but be very careful who you let in your life.

Who knows what Mr. Cook has gathered from your home. He did not appear to be seperate from you holding hands etc.

If you haven't, KEEP THIS MAN OUT OF YOUR HOME AND LIFE.

SET-UP SET-UP SET-UP.

Being a celebrity does not automatically make you able to control your womanly feelings and know a slug when you see one.

The main thing is, never NEVER never think you have won the man and speak with his wife because now she has returned a major slap in your face.

Welcome to the life of a celebrity and a world of amature advisors!!! Keep your head up. Let your concern be about your precious daughter. Apparently the Cooks were not thinking of their children, but, you can.

Majorly remember who holds your future and what it takes to recieve the Perfect Eternal Award.

My prayers remain with all concerned, but especially the children.

P.S. Forget about the reality show. You have no idea if the Cooks have also recorded what was going on in your home or leading questions you may have answered during certain moments of closeness.

Should there be tapes of your family and your business, the law is in place to protect you also. If the lawsuit AGAINST you never makes the case, ..... ..... you will know why.

If people spent more time minding their own business they wouldn't have time to mind someone else's.
