Fantasia is denying accusations that she’s a homewrecker after she was cited as the other woman in divorce papers filed last week.
Paula Cook filed for divorce from her husband Antwaun Cook last week, accusing Fantasia of having an affair with her husband.
But the former American Idol contestant’s manager, Brian Dickens, is defending his client, telling E! Online: “Fantasia is certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of the Cooks’ marriage.”
In her divorce petition filed last Wednesday, Paula Cook singles out Fantasia’s “covert adulterous affair” with her husband as the reason for their breakup, stating that Fantasia once told her over the phone, “He don’t want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you’ll know how to keep him. That’s why he is here with me.”
Paula claims that the affair began in August 2009 and that her “Husband and Ms. Barrino have at times recorded their illicit sexual activity.”
“Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges,” continued her manager’s statement regarding the allegations. “Fantasia’s faith in God, herself and family remain as strong as ever.”
