Fantasia’s Ex Files For Full Custody Of Their Daughter
Just when we thought Fantasia was starting to have some luck in the love department, her ex-boyfriend decides to shake things up again.
Her daughter’s father, Brandel Shouse has filed a lawsuit against Fantasia asking for full custody of their 13-year-old daughter! The couple began dating in 1998 and ended things in 2003. Fantasia has made it very clear that the relationship was extremely toxic. Shouse pleaded guilty to beating and choking her.
A rep for Fantasia stated,
Fantasia Barrino is currently involved in a Child Custody, Visitation, and Child Support legal proceeding filed in Mecklenburg, North Carolina. The lawsuit was filed by Mr. Brandel J. Shouse, the father of Fantasia’s 13-year-old daughter Zion. Despite living in North Carolina, Mr. Shouse had very little personal contact with Zion and has provided no financial support for her. The case will not be heard until 2015. Fantasia is confident that legal process will move forward smoothly and that the Court will make a decision that is in the best interest of Zion.”
Fantasia hopes that her fans understand the sensitive nature of these matters and that she cannot share with them all of the details at this time. Fantasia also knows that all of her ‘Baby Mama’ fans know exactly what she is going though and will support her as she continues to take wonderful and complete care of her daughter.
Brandel has not been present in their daughter’s life for the past 13 years. Why in the world is this man stirring up trouble for Fantasia?
