FANTASIA IS A DIVA

Barrino has always been a stylish one and never misses a chance to flaunt her curves. She might look confident flaunting her curvaceous body now, but the singer was once subjected to media scrutiny that revolved around her weight.

In 2010, the "Lose to Win" singer was so frustrated that she tried to take her own life by taking a bunch of sleeping pills and aspirin.

Barrino won "American Idol" back in 2004 but for many years that followed, she had much going on in her life besides music. Her financial health made headlines and a woman even accused her of breaking up her marriage.

In 2010, the "Lose to Win" singer got so frustrated that she tried to take her own life by taking a bunch of sleeping pills and aspirin. Fortunately, she lived.

STRONGER THAN EVER

In an interview with "Chicago Tribune," Barrino confessed that she was no longer in pain and that she hoped her audience could relate to the pain she portrayed in her songs.

"I sing it loud and I sing it proud and I sing it with a meaning and I sing it with a feeling. I used to sing it in pain."

Barrino's life changed forever when she met the man who would go on to become her husband and it was none other than Kendall Taylor. They got engaged in 2014 and tied the knot a year later.

In 2019, Barrino made some controversial remarks about why she thinks submission is the key to a happy marriage. She went on to say that women cannot be the "king" of the house and they are better off learning how to submit.

Later in September 2019, Taylor clarified in a video that submission is supposed to be a dance between two lovers rather than being dominated by a partner.

Both Barrino and Taylor have children from their previous relationships. While Barrino has a daughter, Zion, and a son, Dallas, Taylor has a grown-up son named Treyshaun.
