Fantasia Barrino aborted married lover's baby




American Idol season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino admitted on the witness stand Monday that her married boyfriend Antwaun Cook got her pregnant, but she aborted the baby, RadarOnline reports. She had procedure around the time she tried to commit suicide in August.

Barrino was in a North Carolina courtroom facing questions during Cook's divorce proceedings whether she was aware he was married to now-ex-wife Paula. She said they had dated "off and on for about 11 months," but she thought Antwaun was separated from his wife. The Mecklenburg County Court chamber was cleared of witnesses, with no reporters in the room when she confirmed she'd aborted their baby, but a source spilled the beans to the site.

Barrino's suicide attempt three months ago came after she read a court complaint by Paula naming her as a homewrecker. Mediation between the two had failed, so now Paula is considering suing Fantasia for "alienation of affection," a law only enforceable in seven states (including North Carolina) in which a scorned spouse can bring a suit against the party responsible for the failed marriage. And that concludes The Juice* Obscure Legal Lesson for today.
