LEGAL DRAMA: Court Finds Fantasia's Lover Was Separated From Wife During Time Of Affair?!

​ ​ ​ ​

Fantasia got some really great news for the holidays as a North Carolina court found that her lover Antwaun Cook was indeed separated from his wife during their affair.  Deets inside...

 

RadarOnline.com reports that a North Carolina judge ruled in favor of Antwaun Cook in his divorce proceeding against ex-wife Paula saying the pair’s separation date was September 14, 2009 and not June, 2010, as Paula had claimed.  Not sure which standards rthe court used, but I'm sure Paula (and others) beg to differ.

This is great news for Fantasia, though, as it allows her to argue she did not willingly or knowingly bust up the marriage of Paula and Antwaun.  Paula had claimed Fantasia knew Antwaun was married and went after him anyway.

How this finding will play out on Paula’s plan to sue Fanny under North Carolina’s unique Alienation of Affection law is not known.  But it's looking pretty good for ya girl right now.   Wives Club 1, Homewreckers Association 0.

Keke I agree with you... in

Keke I agree with you... in addition to that two types of women deal with married men... malicious/desperate or the truly unknowing... Gotta ask yourself which one is your friend and should you have a malicious vendictive person as a "friend" just saying... nobody's perfect but there should be some boundaries of the people we let in our fives... I hope she starts listening to your wisdom!

Women who knowingly date

Women who knowingly date married/separated/taken men are low self esteem chickenheads who don't believe they can get anything better, POINT BLANK PERIOD. There's no other excuse for it. Love? lol, they clearly don't know what that is, but heartache, I can guarantee they have known and will know lots of it with their legs open to married men. The truth hurts, literally. HELLO! Goodbye.

Newsflash! Separated means

Newsflash! Separated means you are still legally married. Ladies, please stop being so desperate and ghetto and close your legs (and doors) to married men. It's just not that serious, and if you think it's "love" - please check yourself until he's DIVORCED. Some of y'all are just ravenous and thirsty...not a good look for a queen. HELLO! Goodbye.

While I don't condone

While I don't condone adultery, I must say this is a lesson learned for both parties to never do this mess again. Fanny almost lost some of her money over this foolishness and the emotional scarring of having to abort a child. I don't think we should now turn on the wife and say she was salty and try to make her out to be desperate or something like she's the bad guy and had no right to trip. Legally separated or not he probably still was going back and forth tapping the wife and Fanny at the same time making the wife think that there might still be a chance. Straight trife! Her husband and Fanny were wrong she tried to make a point and probably did this to hold them accountable and be humiliated. Was it right? Technically no, but did it make her feel a little better? Maybe a little, but at the end of the day no cuz it doesn't change what happened. Yes she's a Christian but trying to be Christlike in situations like these isn't easy and I'm not mad at her for letting her flesh take over for a little revenge. Shoot she could have tried to beat Antwaun and Fanny down physically many women would have, but she acted like a lady when trying to be vengeful and took this thing to court. I hope all parties involved can move on as gracefully as possible from this situation.

Good! Fanny has been through

Good! Fanny has been through enough. People always want what others have worked hard to get. And for many years in the Black community people have been seperating with actually going through the divorce procedures. Some don't have the money to divorce and some have false hope that they will be together again.

lol while it's "stupid" to

lol while it's "stupid" to you, some would call it the righteous thing to do, not to date until they're divorced. I have a friend who just went through a three year divorce, and he refused to date until it was finalized. Now, he is a christian man who believed getting a divorce was already wrong enough, so he vowed not to add compound sin upon sin. His choice, but some people DO have self control and do believe they are accountable to God for their actions. No place in the Bible do I see anything about "separation." That's because it nor anything like it is recognized, you're either married or you're not. Have some respect, restraint and patience and do yourself and others a favor if you're divorcing and wait until it's final. As you can see, it saves a lot of heartache, not to mention, your integrity. If we still care about that nowadays lol.

I am tired of everybody

I am tired of everybody throwing the bible out there! If your friend was a REAL Christian he wouldn't EVER date again because according to JESUS you can't get divorced! Divorce came about during the old testament with Moses allowing people to divorce because "there hearts become hardened". That goes right out the window in the New Testament because JESUS states any man or woman who divorces there husband/wife and takes another is committing ADULTERY! Remember your Vow to GOD says "Till death do us part" not until i decide i can't be married anymore. In conclusion your friend and any other divorced person is just as sinful and wrong as fantasia, so please stop judging her!

Ummm... Marriage as a

Ummm... Marriage as a religious construct is quite different than marriage as a legal construct. Ask an Orthodox Jewish person how easy it is to get a RELIGIOUS divorce as opposed to a LEGAL divorce.

AHHHHHHHHH...finally!

AHHHHHHHHH...finally! Someone with some Biblical intelligence! People are discounting the Bible more and more these days. The bible HAS NOT CHANGED. The divorce is bad enough...add fornication on top of that and it gets worse! We cannot always live based on "feelings" ladies. That ain't nothin but the flesh. We have to put God and his commandments FIRST.

Is that what your friend

Is that what your friend publicly told you? So you're saying this man was separated from his wife for three years until the divorce went through and neither one of them dated ANYBODY during that time? Uh, huh, and I have a bridge to sell you.lol GTHOH

Call me naive, but I don't believe in justifying separation. There is marriage and divorce, no in between. The only time a separation occurs is when the parties believe there is a possibility for reconciliation.

That is naive. You have to be seperated for a while before you get divorced. It has nothing to do with thinking that you will get back together.

Uh duh!!!! (And the ladies say: He was still married, blah,blah, blah). news flash: seperated people do date others. Seperated people live seperate lives and are on the way to divorce. To expect a man to not deal with anyone while he was seperated is utterly stupid and not realistic.

Whatever standards the judge

Whatever standards the judge used in Mr. Cook's favour I am sure it is not based on heresay, gossip, opinions or what people think but on facts and whether Mrs. Cook had proof that they were separated a WHOLE NINE MONTHS after her husband said

Cuz YOU sound like the miserable one.

It really doesn't matter what

It really doesn't matter what the courts say because the court of public opinion has already reached its verdict with Fantasia, unfortunately. I am of those folks who believe you aren't divorced until you have it on file with the judge granting the divorce. Separated does NOT equal divorced. You are still legally married. I hope Fantasia has learned from this situation. Leave this character alone.

There are many reasons,

There are many reasons, mostly financial & sometimes because of kids, why couples remain separated and do not seek divorce. It has nothing to do with whether they still LOVE each other but instead because their lives remain easier being married, both financially and for the their kids sake. And yes, some people are okay to live their lives like this. I'm happily married right now but I can't promise that will always be the case--but I will say that until my kids are at least off to college, my husband and I intend to raise our kids in one household. There's no violence, yelling or cursing in our home so there's no reason why we can't come to an arrangement like adults for the sake of our kids. With almost 20yrs in, you learn a few things and your perspective changes.
