HER TROUBLING PAST RELATIONSHIP

It's been a long and bumpy road for Barrino, especially after such a controversial relationship with estranged partner Antwaun Cook. At the time of their relationship, the singer did not know that he was married. 

She ended up with a court case from Cook's wife, which led to her near-death experience as she overdosed on sleeping pills.

OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES

A decade after, though, she overcame all the challenges that came with the relationship and was left with a son, Dallas Xavier Barrino. 

The 8-year-old boy is the light in his mom's life, and she's proven that multiple times by the way she shows him off on social media. 

Through it all, Fantasia and her two children are loved and accepted by her new husband, Kendall Taylor, who is the Chief Operating Officer of Metro Trqansportation, LLC.
