Fantasia’s married boyfriend’s wife Paula Cook is speaking out through her lawyer and she says she has been humiliated by Fantasia’s relationship with her husband, Antwaun Cook.
“She is saddened and disheartened by the end of her marriage,” divorce attorney Tamela Wallace tells People. “She’s embarrassed, and humiliated and distressed by the lack of respect that was shown for her marriage by Ms. Barrino.”
As for the pictures that surfaced Friday of Fantasia meeting Antwaun in a Charlotte, N.C., park Paula’s lawyer says:
“It’s that kind of brazen behavior that Mrs. Cook has had to endure for the last 11 months, until June of this year. This is something that has caused her emotional distress, pain, anguish….She wanted nothing more than to have a happy family with her husband and her children. And she’s not been able to do that.”
The lawyer says her client is a private citizen who didn’t ask for her husband’s affair to make national news.
“The only mistake she made was marrying a man who Ms. Barrino felt like she was entitled to have. She is having to defend her marriage, when she didn’t ask for this.”
