It’ hasn’t even been a month since Fantasia gave birth to her son Dallas Xavier Dec. 13 and already there are issues. According to the St. Louis American, Fantasia doesn’t want to be separated from her newborn baby but she needs to work to support him and her 10-year-old daughter.
“Fantasia has a lot of people to support. She’s still financing an expensive lifestyle and touring constantly to pay for it,” according to an anonymous source. “She needs to work – but her baby needs her too!”
If you read between the lines, it sounds as though her boyfriend/baby daddy/cheating husband Antwaun Cook isn’t helping to support their child. He’s reportedly still married to his wife, Paula, and according to sources is not living with Fanny. You’d think those facts would be enough for Fantasia to get the hint but she’s supposedly still “hoping for the best.”
“What Fantasia really hopes is that he will step up now, marry her and help with the care of their family,” the source said. “She’s tired of carrying the whole load by herself.”
Good luck with that Fantasia, but I think it may be time to let the fantasy go. Wendy Williams mercilessly went in on Fantasia yesterday (as she does most people) and even rung up T-mobile where Antwaun supposedly works to see how much he brings home ($60K). But no matter how much he is or isn’t making he still needs to take responsibility for the child he created.
What do you think about Fantasia’s situation? Is she crazy to think Antwaun would step up and marry her now? Should she even want the cheater as her husband?
