Hey mjfan212, where did you go to school? I really think your elementary school spelling teacher fail you and about 98% of everyone else commenting on this story.

This lady was talking about her relationship with this man on a radio show and she sounded as if she didn't give a rat's ass about the wife or the children. I hope her baby girl doesn't get a hold of this cd if it exists. That would be a shame.

How I wish that Fantasia could read this. As human we seem to think that things like this will never happen to us. I donot know the full extent of her problems, however, it does take two to tangle, but when a person cheats on their wife or husband or lover, most of the time its not the first time. Fantasia may have been wrong, but was he that easy to do this to his wife. Come on people. I hope she will be able to find real love and happiness when this is all over. If she was not famous it would not be news. For everyone that have nasty remarks, remember we are all human. Maybe your secret is worst than her affair. Fantasia your daughter needs you, if you tried to take your life , never again. My son played russia roulette and that took his life. There are many unanswered questions but the void is like it was yesterday, its been four years. Your mother and daughter donot need this, they need you. only if my son was here. He was the one that told me you was going to win American Idol. stand up and live for hyour daughter, and her only. Let her know that we all make mistakes, live and learn.

I am sick of people always trying to judge people like they never had any issues.Check your own history before to trash someone else.She may already feel bad for what she has done so she don't need you critics riding her back and and you all don't even know the whole story.Thank God you all are not judges.Have a blessed day and continue to pray for her.

This message is from Fantasia's friend....Why the hell is it any of your business. Why you worried about her, your man is probably off doing the same thing...better are doing it. Get a life and stop judging people and listening to the MEDIA!!!! Fantasia has a GREAT voice and she is a beautiful person inside and out. I cannot believe "YOU PEOPLE" are being so UGLY!!!! Its always the same tired on folks that comments are negative. When a spouse want to blame the other person...blame the spouse. GO FANTASIA..MARRY HIM!!!!!

Fantasia, we make mistakes. There are alot of people in the world who cheat. Ask God for forgiveness, concentrate on your child and career. Your life does not have to be over if you don't want it to be. According to your TV show, you are under alot of stress, like alot of us are but you are a celebrity, you have to be very careful with the choices you make because the media is waiting for anything they can publish rather it's true of false. I pray you find strength and feminine power to pull yourself out of this and turn it into something positive.
"Thank God His spirit is not like humans who believe everything we hear, make negative comments and are quick to judge" as if they have never made any wronge choices. "KEEP YOUR HEAD UP, PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS, AND MOVE ON". You will be in my prayers.
LOVE YOU! PS make a huge comeback for your future!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dumb Comments    

Wow is all I will say; not to the Fantasia story but to all of the ignorant comments left by a lot of these idiots here. I agree with comment# 14, just because she doesn't sing your typr of music you all don't like her. I know that none of you are flawless. Only difference is she is under a microscope. You slugs are just mad because she did win American Idol against ALL odds and she's making more $$$ than you ever will ! HATERS !

If anyone is at fault for the marriage ending it is the cheating husband! A man can not be taken away unless he wants to. Why put all this blame on someone that wasn't even included in the marriage? Fantasia didn't cheat the man did!
