To all the haters on here who can't find away to get a life! I am a musician also and I am 100% in my friend Fantasia's corner. Think about it you can't blame her for who she knows .... and you should'nt come down on her because she's successful, you all did Mr. Micheal Jackson the same way while he was here, and then when he was gone! Oh! Boy then the entire World was so full of sorrow! Everybody all of a suddened, cared for Micheal, but it was to late, you should have cared for him while he was here !!! The same rule apply's in Fantasia's case, I guess none of you listened, when Oprah said; You should give people roses while they are here, and not after they have gone on. But you probably don't even know what that means, because you spend too much and all of your time just hating !!! ~( DA ~ BIGDOGG )~ ........ In Drumming & Bass Guitar. *

#92 Alphonso Most musicians screw around, it's handed to them on a platter even if they're not famous lol!! How about you, is that why you feel so little for the wife's anger hm?! It doesn't matter what the guy told her, she knew he was still married with kids and if she thought that didn't matter perhaps she should have checked his pathetic story out a bit more before hopping into bed with him and making sex tapes (allegedly)!!
I do agree that it wasn't all her fault Paula Cook's marriage failed and I said so before Fantasia dramatically took an overdose! However, she was probably most certainly the nail in the coffin of that marriage, his wife is angry, her kids will not have anywhere near the same sort of life as if the parent's hadn't divorced! Since she has to name the person hubby's cheating with in order to get her divorce on the grounds of his adultery (which in some states can make a divorce settlement 90/10 not 50/50), then just because the media picked up on it so what!!
Fantasia has a daughter herself doesn't she? It was either a fake attempt at suicide to garner sympathy or the SELFISH act of a mother who didn't think how her daughter would feel or cope if mummy died!! Nobody's perfect, men have lied for hundreds of years to get women into bed - you pick yourself up, take a break for a while until the whole story dies down, then you move on with your life and stop trusting men, Jeez!!

truth hurts    

Tmz tries its best to find the ugliest pictures of people to embarrass them. All of a sudden you guys can find a very nice picture of Fantasia...Something tells me you all feel guilty (rightfully so) about creating this situation.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. We have forgotten about the many others who walked this path before Fantasia....Angelina Jolie, Alicia Keys, LeAnn Rimes, and a host of others. We should be praying for Fantasia and not wishing her death. Some of the things that I have read here about Fantasia are so cruel and mean. I do not condone what she did and her involvement with this married man was not a good thing to do. There is sanctity in marriage and family. But, Fantasia is unmarried, young and her childhood environment may not have presented this fact to her BEFORE she became involved with this guy. Hopefully, she will learn now that love makes you do strange things, some of which are not smart. Who of us has never been there?

Fantasia, if you are reading this, please know that God loves you regardless of what you do. Please take care of yourself and put your focus back where it should be ... your health child first.

Last, know that before you can love someone else, you have to love yourself first.

Um- doesn't she have a daughter? Thee is no more of a selfish thing to do as attempt suicide when you have a child that needs you. Shame on her for putting penis and her own feelings before her child.

Come on now Fantasia get it together girl please don't mess ur life up over a dude u got a beautiful God given voice and ur career is not over this maybe God's way of telling u to turn ur life back to him ur first love. U may think cuz u got so much that ur independent of God and u don't need him but this goes to show u that ur not. Just because people put u on a high horse there is always something to knock u back down and show u that ur not big at all. Remember that u r a child of God and no one/thing will come before him.

All you people saying, "it's not Fantasia's fault, that marriage was over", need to stop fooling yourselves. These hos do it time and time again, sure, a real man should be able to resist, but a lot of men are dogs and separate love and sex.....their judgment gets cloudy. Eventually, they realize they made a mistake, but it's too late to take it back; the trust is gone and the marriage ruined. Just ask Jesse James. I don't understand you people......are you all coming from broken homes or broken marriages yourselves and are you fooling yourselves into thinking this is natural? 50% of marriages in AMERICA end in divorce because we, as a nation, have compromised morals and think anything goes and it's okay..."do what you feel.....let your flesh rule you". It's DISGUSTING!!! If you can't keep your d*ck in your pants, don't get married!!
