Here is more proof that black men LOVE big women: singer Fantasia Barrino is gaining weight in preparation for the biggest acting role of her career. She's set to portray Mahalia Jackson in a movie on the Gospel singer's storied life. Meanwhile, over the weekend, Fantasia vacationed in St. Kitts with her boyfriend Antwaun Cook. If you recall, this is the man who Fantasia almost took her life for after their love affair sparked headlines all over the blogs two years ago.
The couple went snorkeling in the clear blue waters off St. Kitts yesterday. Barrino, 26, had performed at the annual St. Kitts Music Festival over the weekend and stayed on for a few days with a group of family and friends, including her nine-year-old daughter Zion.
It's not her weight that made Antwaun fall madly in love with Fantasia. It's something else. There's another male industry exec who is head over heels in love with Fantasia. I can't divulge his name, but he can't stop talking about her. I tease him endlessly about his infatuation with her, lol.
On a scale of 1-10, this industry exec is a 9½. He can pull all the females based off his boyish charm alone. So why does he love Fantasia, a woman with obvious mental issues? He says he can't explain it. He just does.
