As she continues to promote her latest album, Side Effects of You, Fantasia can’t seem to shake her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Antwaun Cook.
The short and dirty of it is, over two years ago, Fantasia and Antwaun had a relationship. The story goes that Antwaun was still married to another woman. There’s much speculation as to if Antwaun was separated from his wife or not, but what we do know is the two (Fantasia and Antwaun) have a son together. And that relationship alone has caused much negative press for Fantasia. So much so that she allegedly attempted to commit suicide. Fast forward to the present day and Fantasia and her ex are no longer together, but inquiring minds wanna know the status of these two. In a recent interview with iFelicious, the 28-year-old explains what her relationship is like these days, along with admitting that some, but not all of her album is about her relationship. Peep a few excerpts.
On if the album is about her relationship with Antwaun:
That’s when it becomes kinda boring. I wasn’t only talking about relationships in that song. People are using so many things right now. People are losing jobs, homes, their minds, relationships. It’s just not about Antwuan. It’s a lot of relationships that I dealt with. Especially with my dad. Those songs are just not speaking about Antwuan. I speak about my brothers; I’m the only girl. I feel like it was always me giving, giving, giving. All of my music is just not based on Antwaun.
I think it’s my way speaking to everyone saying, you only heard what you heard. You never got to see that real love, that we had. They kept running with the whole marriage thing and she stole somebody from some woman. Well, if everybody looks at it and goes and does their research, I won that case. So obviously I won that case, it never was what they said it was. But once something gets printed, people believe everything they hear, or they put their own twist, their own spin to it. Regardless of what you say, he’s still my son’s father. No, we’re not together. I still do love him. He’s still a great feather. He’s still a great friend. So I have to say this album was my way of letting go of a lot of things, the world mainly.
