This is where he began his habit of always wearing sunglasses, made by designer Billy Stickles.Subsequently, she released her debut album, Free Yourself, which went on to be certified Platinum by the RIAA and earned Fantasia three Grammy nominations in 2006.The month of August 2010 also saw Fantasia — who later admitted to being pregnant (and having an abortion) at least once during her relationship with Cook — being hospitalized following a suicide attempt when she overdosed on aspirin and an unknown sleep aid. I wanted it to be over with….” A few months later, in December 2010, a judge ruled in Fantasia’s favor, claiming that Antwaun and his wife had already been separated once he and Fantasia began their relationship, and Paula decided against going through with divorcing Antwaun.
That man, a manager at a T-Mobile store in Charlotte, NC (we’ll call him “Antwaun Cook“) was married to a woman (who we’ll call “Paula“) with children. So she did what any self-respecting woman in her position would do: she took him away from his family and his home, just so that she could have him for her own.
But that didn’t stop Fantasia from getting what she wanted. All of this came to light in August 2010, after Paula filed for divorce from Antwaun and filed a $100,000 lawsuit against Fantasia, under allegations that the R&B singer had a year-long relationship with Antwaun, citing North Carolina’s alienation of affection laws and basically blaming Fantasia for ruining her marriage. Cook’s side of the story, Fantasia and Antwaun were dating while she and Antwaun were married, but Fantasia claimed that they didn’t start seeing each other until AFTER the Cooks separated.
On April 18, 2013, Fantasia returned to American Idol singing "Lose to Win." The performance dubbed "dynamic, passionate and powerful" won her fervent expressions of approval from the show's current judges and a wild ovation from the live audience.
As of February 2012, Fantasia has sold 2,842,000 albums and 1,425,000 tracks in the United States.
