Fantasia Unable to Settle Lawsuit with Paula CookPublished by Dior Noir on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
The saga continues…
Fantasia met with her ex-lover’s wife, Paula Cook, earlier this month to try and handle the “situation” with Antwaun Cook in private and out of the courts, but the pow wow didn’t go according to plan.
The two women met for 12 hours of private mediation on Nov. 1 to try and hash things out, sources told RadarOnline, and Fantasia even offered Paula $100,000 to settle; but despite all the attempts to bury the hatchet, the official Mrs. Cook is still moving forward with her plans to take the singer to court. “They didn’t settle because Fantasia refuses to acknowledge that she was aware of Paula’s marriage to Antwaun when she started dating him, and Paula is adamant that she knew,” a source said.
The women will meet again on Nov. 22, but that meeting will be in a North Carolina courthouse. Paula plans to sue Fantasia for “Alienation of Affection,” a law that’s only recognized in seven states but allows a spouse to sue a third party if his or her partner leaves the relationship for another person. In addition to proving that the love between a married couple was destroyed, a person bringing this lawsuit must also prove that love between the married couple existed to win.
Even if Fantasia knew about the situation all along, is it fair to blame her for destroying the marriage? I hope these women are also taking the time to come at Antwaun for playing them both.
