I am praying for her and for her family. It is not for be to judge. Whatever her situation is, that is between her and God. Reading the many posts, it appears that society loves when people appear to fall from grace, but the catch here is we can all fall. Never forget this. Just because your turn has not come doesn't mean it won't come. Be hesitant to pile up on someone when they seem down. I will continue to lift her up in prayer.

There was a show on tele last night (I think Nancy Grace) that reported Barrino was denying this story of her affair but showed the two of them together, showed the tattoo of his name on her upper left chest (real class) and that the two of them were filmed having sex so the wife could see it. Barrino also reportedly told the wife "He don't want you no more". Perhaps the reports of the film and her statement were false but hard denying those pics. This happened in NC which is one of the only states that allows one to sue for alienation of affection in divorce cases. If she really did do and say those horrible things, I hope the wife sues the pants off this helium-voiced twit and the now ex-boyfriend.

I'm curious, why is it that everyone blames her and not the MARRIED man. It takes two people to have a relationship correct? Why all the hate? I'm not excusing her behavior by any means, but she is not in this alone. Infidelity is brutal and wreaks havoc on the injured spouse and children. I hope all of you with the hate never make a mistake. What does her voice have to do with the situation? Read between the lines; what is it REAL reason some of you feel she was not American Idol worthy? The American people voted as I recall.

She need jail time     

people need to leave this girl alone. she have had a lot of issues from her past .I watch/saw her story on lifetime and Oprah. No body is perfect why are people blaming her and not the man ? It takes two to break up a marriage . There are two sides to every story .Maybe the marriage was already over. Money and fame can't bring u happiness which is why most of hollywood stars are miserable and usually suffer from drugs issues , fail marriages/relationships, .....

What nasty comments. I'm sure you're lives are all without any complications. Have you ever watched her show and seen how much her family sucks the life out of her? She has real issues and I'm sorry it had to get to this. The nerve of some of you criticizing her for not being able to read. From the look of the grammar I'm seeing you all are not too far behind her. Nobody's perfect and relationships aren't perfect. Don't be so judgmental.

So the married man with will all those kids is getting off without any penalty? (Other than losing a marriage he did not honor in the first place.) Where is the outcry for his selfish disregard in this matter?

She may be a hot coochie queen-diva homewrecker. But, a MAN is supposed to govern his actions.

Dude, it isn't about you. It's about the people for whom you are responsible, not you getting a short rise.

We do not hear from Fantasia for months, years even, then when her CD is ready for release, she attempts suicide (or so we are told) and she has a porn tape. At least she is paying attention to what gets attention in our sad public culture, but why are young artists dependent on this nonsense for publicity. You are either talented or not. Stand on your own and stop with the sensationalism!
