EXCLUSIVE: Fantasia's New Man Is MARRIED?! And She Got His Name Tattoo'd On Her?!

@ the Thurgood Marshall event last week

I see dating a "technically" married man is what's hot in the celeb streets these days.  And Fantasia is allegedly the newest advocate of the trend. Now that she and rapper Young Dro are over, she has started dating North Carolina T-Mobile salesman Antwaun Cook. They actually met at his store in Charlotte back in August. "Cook" happens to still be legally married and we're told he didn't file for divorce until after he met Fanny. But she surely rushed to get his name tattooed on herself! Here's what we know--thanks to a source extremely close to Mr. Cook: Fantasia and Antwaun met the second week of August while he was still living with his wife and 2 young kids. By the end of August, they had been spending a lot of time together at a certain hotel in North Carolina. When she was performing in The Color Purple in Greensboro, NC,  he went to spend time with her in close by High Point, NC (where Fanny is from). Antwaun abruptly left his wife the second week in September, and the next week Fanny had his name tattooed on her shoulder!  He went with her to Atlanta for The Color Purple shows she was doing.  And the following week, he moved into her Charlotte, NC home where he is currently residing. He attended the Pink Party concert with her in Atlanta a few weeks ago where Fanny even called his name on stage. More on this situation after the cut...

MASSIVE RED CARPET FAB: 2009 Soul Train Music Awards

YBF hit the 2009 Soul Train Music Awards red carpet and show last night in Atlanta.  It was an overall feel of positivity and musical fabness.  And we've got 100+ exclusive pics of YBF celebs making their arrivals.  The hosts Taraji P. Henson (rocking the hot new Jimmy Choo bootie/sandals) and Terrence Howard made nice on the carpet.

Letoya Luckett looked fabulous in her silver Herve Leger dress.

Keisha Knight-Pulliam pulled off a chic and sophisticated all black look.  Nice. The ATL Housewives made an appearance of course:

A leather dress though Lisa?

The Holy Trinity of real R&B singers hit the carpet.  Kelly Price, Tamia, and Deborah Cox are all touring together right now and looked fabulous on the carpet.

And Tommy Davidson is still a fool for dressing like Bootsy Collins (who was also on the red carpet) after Halloween.

EXCLUSIVE: Sanaa's Man Steve Rifkind BLASTED For "Using" Black Women In The Industry?!

Looks like Sanaa Lathan's new music entrepreneur boo Steve Rifkind (Founder and CEO of SRC Records) is not the "lover of black women" people think he is. We spoke to a particular source who knows Steve intimately.  And said source alleges Steve purposely uses black women in the industry for sex and simply because he can. Steve's relationship with Sanaa caused a stir as folks around the net were surprised those two would even be a match. But our source tells YBF they're not surprised: "He's very shady. He gets with several black women. That's just his thing." How shady you ask?  Well we found out that his former girlfriend is well known publicist Sari Baez (pictured above with Steve)--Dir. of Marketing/Public Relations for RVC Enterprises who licenses for Dereon, Rocawear, and other clothing companies.  And we're told that the two dated for 2 years--while Steve was married!   She moved in to Steve's NYC pad as Steve told her he was in the midst of a divorce.  Except the divorce never happened, so Sari finally broke it off last year. Even worse--Steve's wife  Nicole (who is also black) filed depositioned Sari 5 times to testify during their divorce proceedings once she found out about his cheating. We've got the proof and more under the cut...
