It has been a tough week for American Idol alum Fantasia Barrino. After being accused of being a âhomewreckerâ and making an alleged sex tape, the singer tried committing suicide and now she may get sued by wife Paula Cook. “[Paula Cook] has threatened via her lawyers to me to sue Fantasia,” the singer’s lawyer, Gena Morris, tells People. North Carolina is one of the seven states that allow a party to sue a “home wrecker” for alienation of affection and criminal conversation. “A comical irony,” says Morris, “because they arrive out of laws when women were property of men.” If sued, the merit of the lawsuit will be based on when Cook separated from his wife. According to Fantasiaâs manager, Antwaun Cook told Barrino he split with his wife in summer 2009, while Paula, in a court filing, has contested it was June 16, 2010. Fantasia and Cook officially called it quits on VH1 cameras Friday, after meeting in a secluded park near her lavish waterfront mansion, reports Radar online. The breakup was shot for her VH1âs reality show âFantasia for Real.â
