Every since winning American Idol, R&B singer Fantasia personal life has been one roller coaster ride… She’s been through everything from attempted suicide to heartbreak as well as criticism over her relationship with a married man. Just recently Fantasia became furious and lashed out at Jet Magazine for using an old photo of her on the cover of their magazine.
In a recent interview with Power 99 in Philly, Fantasia opened up about the controversy surrounding Jet Magazine. She also talked about her current relationship ship status with her baby daddy Antuan Cook, as well as the stigma that has followed her throughout her career about her not being able to read.
Check out what she had to say below:
I think they took that and made me look dumb. And when I speak about my schooling, I was trying to reach out to all those young people who are going through some of the same situations that I went through. I don’t even think at the time, I was so young. It wasn’t my priority. School, I just didn’t enjoy it. Singing was always on my mind. I wasn’t saying I couldn’t read, but I hate to read. But that has changed for me now, because one thing I do read is my contracts. Because I will not allow anybody to mess me up. That’s where I messed up. So I will read those contracts and I will read those checks when they come in.
