Here’s why certain things need to be kept private.

Remember how we told you last week that Fantasia found love again with a man named Kendall Taylor? Well, after she posted images and heartfelt messages about finally finding the man she had been dreaming about, media outlets and everyday people had some questions about Taylor and dug up information on his past. People questioned whether or not he was a married man because of this picture, and Radar Online found out that Taylor has a criminal record, and had been arrested for possessing a weapon on a school campus when he was 16, assault against a female (twice) and possession of a firearm as a felon.

But Taylor has been open and honest about his past, mentoring young men and boys who are offenders through a program called MOVE that’s in Charlotte.  His detailed journey is shared through MOVE’s website:

Kendall began experimenting with sex, drugs and alcohol.  At the age of fifteen, he became a father.  Not only was he ill-prepared for life as a teenager, but he was also struggling with the difficulties of being a responsible parent.  Lacking maturity and strong male guidance, Kendall began walking deeper into dark places.  Places that robbed him of his education, his childhood and ultimately, his freedom.  He was arrested and incarcerated in a facility hundreds of miles from home and it was in that place, at that time, that he began to clearly hear and respond to the call of God on his life.  He laid down the failures of his past and began to carry his cross for the sake of Christ.  Kendall has worked hard to regain what was once lost to him.  He pursued his education; secured full-time employment; serves through the men’s fellowship in his church; restored his name and reputation in the community; and now works to deposit valuable wisdom and life principles into his son, Treyshaun – principles and support he lacked when he was his son’s age.

On Radar Online’s report about Taylor’s past, they said that Fantasia “may not know” about all he’s done and been through. But according to a post the singer put up last night, she’s aware, and is proud of him for changing his life.

This is the message she had for her man:

“YOU!!!…This man Past is why I fell for him. (He’s Just Like Me) I sit and watch a strong Black Man get ready for work EVERY MORNING (suited Up) and Running of a Company that a Husband and WIFE seen something inside of him to be able to do… Mrs.G and Mr. G we Love you.. Thank you so much for believing in those who have been thru something’s but have nothing but Favor over their lives… I think about all the things he has told me and I’m Like Man!!! Nothing but God.. This event was his lane and the GREAT PEOPLE HE WORKS WITH.. You Can’t tell me God won’t take something Out of Nothing and Turn it into SOMETHING I Love This Man And He is Crazy about me also he HATES WHEN I POST HIM cause he’s not about that life..”

It’s good to see Fanny so happy, and kudos to Mr. Taylor for turning his life around and using it to help other young people do the same.
