The former winner of American Idol, Fantasia Barrino has been in the news this week over allegations that she is having an affair with a married man, and now over the alleged overdose she has endured. According to a new report, Barrino’s manager, Brian Dickens addresses much of what is being written about in the media, and gives an update about her current condition.
According to Us Magazine, Dickens says of Barrino: “Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time. She is stable. She will be released from the hospital soon.”
Dickens went on to say of Barrino’s relationship with her boyfriend who is apparently married: “Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it. She knows some of the allegations …. are totally false.” the statement continues. “There are others she strongly doubts. There is plenty she does not know.”
Barrino has been in the public eye since her days on American Idol. It cannot be easy to go through certain things in one’s life with the entire world passing judgment. Some of the things that are currently being reported — as Dickens stated, have no truth to them. What is important now, and what is certain is that the fans can rest assured that Barrino will be fine, and in time, hopefully some of the “false” things will be clarified.
Have you been following the developments with the Barrino story? What do you think?
Court doc**ents 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.
