The father allegedly is Antwaun Cook, whose estranged wife, Paula Cook, labeled Fantasia a “homewrecker” in an ongoing battle with Antwaun. All of this caused Fantasia to attempt to commit suicide. The spunky entertainer has bounced back. Last weekend, she not only performed in Las Vegas at Steve Harvey’s Hoodie Awards, but also did an impromptu four-number concert at the Palms Casino Resort’s Rain Nightclub. Earlier that evening, Fantasia, donning a silver dress and knee-high boots, dined at N9NE Steakhouse with hotel co-owner Gavin Maloof.

On 3 Productions, the leader in celebrity gifting, produced the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Frozen Moments Gift Lounge backstage at the Nokia Theatre in celebration of the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, that aired live on NBC, Sunday August 29. “Undercovers” star Boris Kodjoe and his wife Nicole Ari Parker were thrilled with the year’s supply of P.F. Chang’s Home Menu frozen entrees for two. Said Boris: “We love P.F. Chang’s and we’re definitely not going to go hungry!” Meanwhile, Boris also custom ordered a pair of Magnonni boots in a size 14! and scooped up the original and Only Moroccanoil-Argan oil infused products, saying: “I use the Moroccanoil all over my body!” Each star who stopped by was asked to crack open a fortune cookie and reveal what moment in their career or TV history they’d most like to see “frozen” in time, which helped support the donation of $50,000 that P.F. Chang’s Home Menu made to The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation, which helps shape the future of television while preserving its’ past.
