Fantasia & Paula Cook meet…

12 Nov

According to RadarOnline.com, Fantasia and Paula Cook sat down in mediation for nearly 12 hours, to try to come to a resolution before going to court.  Unfortunately things didn’t go well for Fantasia as she probably thought. 

RadarOnline reports,

 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino met with her boyfriend’s scorned wife, Paula Cook, earlier this month in an attempt to keep the details of Barrino’s alleged affair with Antwaun Cook private and out of the Mecklenburg County courthouse, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

A source close to the situation says the two women attempted to settle their dispute through private mediation but the ladies were unable to reach a settlement, propelling Cook to move forward with a civil lawsuit against the singer.

“Fantasia and Paula were in mediation for nearly 12 hours on November 1,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.

“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.”

According to the source, Fantasia and Paula are set to meet in a North Carolina courthouse again on November 22.

“Fantasia was prepared to pay Paula as much as $100,000 to settle during their mediation, but it fell through,” another source told RadarOnline.com.

“Paula plans on going all the way and is going to sue Fantasia for Alienation of Affection.”

Alienation of Affection is a law still recognized by only seven states – one of which is North Carolina – where an abandoned spouse can file lawsuit against the party responsible for the failure of their marriage, typically the adulterous spouse’s lover.

Paula has filed for divorce from her philandering husband, who is still dating Fantasia.

Wow what an embarrassment!  It’s clear that Paula is a wife scorned but can you blame her.  If you were in her shoes would you sue the other woman if you can? What do you think about the alienation of affection law…is it fair to sue the “other woman”? 

$100,000 isn’t a bad settlement but I’m sure Mrs. Cook plans on getting more once this goes all the way.  Do you agree that the wife should sue the mistress? My guess is if this law was accepted in all states, more woman would think twice before meddling with a married man.  Then again this could be a set-up…I’m just saying!

Anyways…I’m up in the air with this…lemme know you thoughts?
