Fantasia dishes on her relationship status with Antwaun Cook -- says they're no longer together.

R&B singer Fantasia caused a bit of a stir a few years ago when she decided to date a married man named Antwaun Cook of North Carolina. The two were often photographed canoodling, jet skiing, and vacationing in relationship bliss.

Cook’s wife at the time, Paula Cook, filed  court documents in August 2010 claiming her husband began a “covert adulterous affair” with Fantasia in August 2009. Antwaun admitted to the affair, which opened up the door for Paula to legally sue Fantasia for Alienation of Affection, which is a North Carolina law in which one can sue the third party who “alienates” the affections of one spouse from the other spouse.

It appears as if Fantasia and Antwaun’s controversial relationship has ended its course, even after welcoming their son into the world in December 2011. In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Fantasia revealed the two have ended their relationship. Excerpts from the interview are below.

On the status of their relationship:

Me and Antwaun, as of now, we are not together. I think it’s the best thing for us all. We had to learn how to become friends again. There was so much stuff that came out. We were all hurt along the way. There’s trust issues. There’s just a lot of stuff that kinda got put in the mix. And I, at one point, I wanted to make everybody else happy. To love him, to make sure Zion was okay, to make sure everything—but I had to get to a place where I had to learn how to love Fantasia. I never did that, Jamie. And if I don’t love myself, then I can’t be in a relationship.

On the lessons she believes he has learned:

He’ll say, “I learned that you can’t play with people’s hearts.” I think every man gets to a place of knowing that they wanna be faithful and they wanna be good fathers and good husbands and good boyfriends… Things play out for you to say, okay, it’s time for me to man up or it’s time for me to woman up. I think we both have a lot of regrets of how things just happened; it all happened so fast. I just went full-speed ahead and that’s why I was tellin’ you now. I think out everything before I do it. Everything.
