Fantasia on Antwaun Cook: “We Are Not Together, I Think it’s the Best Thing For Us.’
Rucuss staffMarch 24, 2013
Fantasia Barrino is on another magazine cover, but this time around she doesn’t have any complaints.
Fantasia, who didn’t like the photo Jet magazine published in last month’s issue, sat down with Sister 2 Sister’s Jamie Foster and opened up about her relationship with Antwaun Cook. The American Idol alum reveals she is no longer with Cook and she’s now focusing on herself and her kids.
Check out a few excerpts from her S2S interview below.
On the status of her relationship with Cook:
“Me and Antwaun, as of now, we are not together. I think it’s the best thing for us all. We had to learn how to become friends again. There was so much stuff that came out. We were all hurt along the way. There’s trust issues. There’s just a lot of stuff that kinda got put in the mix. And I, at one point, I wanted to make everybody else happy. To love him, to make sure Zion was okay, to make sure everything—but I had to get to a place where I had to learn how to love Fantasia. I never did that, Jamie. And if I don’t love myself, then I can’t be in a relationship.”
On the lessons she thinks Cook learned:
“He’ll say, “I learned that you can’t play with people’s hearts.” I think every man gets to a place of knowing that they wanna be faithful and they wanna be good fathers and good husbands and good boyfriends… Things play out for you to say, okay, it’s time for me to man up or it’s time for me to woman up. I think we both have a lot of regrets of how things just happened; it all happened so fast. I just went full-speed ahead and that’s why I was tellin’ you now. I think out everything before I do it. Everything.”
