Fantasia Barrino’s love life has long been one suitable for a daytime soap opera. First there were reports that the 28-year-old singer was dating a married man, Antwuan Cook, who she met at a Verizon Wireless store. Following that the singer denied their relationship although she was seen sporting a tattoo of his last name across her shoulder. She would later be called out by Cook’s wife during the couple’s divorce proceedings and be forced to admit that she aborted Cook’s baby while he was still married. Now years later, many people are wondering if Fantasia is pregnant yet again.
In December of 2011, the singer gave birth to Cook’s son Dallas Xavier Barrino, after months of denying her pregnancy. Now rumors are running rampant that she and Cook are expecting yet again. Over the weekend the singer posted an Instagram photo showing her wrapped up in a robe and cradling her stomach. “Getting ready for Essence,” wrote Fantasia under the photo. “I’m nervous. Plus I had a ruff night!!! But I’m better today.”
The photo quickly became a hot topic of conversation with many wondering if the songstress was indeed with child. Also noted was the fact that her baby’s dad was recently spotted with a reality star sparking rumors that he was cheating. Last week, Kendra James of Oxygen’s ‘Bad Girls Club’ posted a picture online of her canoodling with Cook. After a number of people commented asking if they were a couple, the photo mysteriously disappeared.
While the question of her boyfriend’s fidelity remains unanswered, Fantasia has since spoken on the pregnancy rumors directly in a series of pictures. Click ‘continue’ to see what she said. -danielle canada
