Before there was the tumultuous relationship that was Antwaun Cook and Fantasia Barrino, there was Antwaun Cook the T-Mobile manager in Charlotte, NC, and his wife, Paula Cook. Unfortunately, Antwaun decided to roam to be with Fantasia, go on trips with her and (kind of) start a family with her (Barrino testified that she was pregnant more than once during their relationship). But Paula wasn’t going to stand for it. Not only did she try to get back at him in court, but Paula tried to take Fantasia down too, suing her in 2010 under the “alienation of affection” lawsuits that are still upheld in North Carolina and a few other states. Under such a tort action, she tried to sue Fantasia for $100,000 because she felt deserted and that Fanny was responsible for the failure of her marriage. However, she wound up not following through with it after all. Paula didn’t even go through with divorcing from her husband, and in the end, though Fantasia and Antwaun had their son Dallas, they couldn’t make things work.
According to a source “close to the situation,” after Antwaun’s father passed away this year around Father’s Day, he decided that he wanted to do right by his family, and things seem to be going well.
“Antwaun’s father passed away the week of Father’s Day and they were really close, so since then he’s been wanting to work on his marriage.
Technically he’s still married to Paula and they’re back together now. The only tie he still has to Fantasia is his son, Dallas.
Antwaun and Paula spent Thanksgiving together at his mother’s house in Wilmington,” the insider revealed, solidifying that they’re back together.
And in November they went on a trip together with a bunch of friends to the Bahamas for a birthday. Antwaun doesn’t really talk to Fantasia much anymore except about their son.”
As one person who commented on this story said, “When a dog’s lost he’ll find his way home…eventually.” If Paula really wants to work things out with Antwaun, then I wish them both the best of luck. However, if I was her, I wouldn’t touch that man with a ten-foot pole…
