Fantasia Barrino is an R&B singer who catapulted to stardom after winning the third season of American Idol in 2004.
Her powerful vocals and exceptional performances also earned her the distinction of becoming the first vocalist to have their first single debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The singing sensation not only has a big name and reputation, but she also has a wonderful husband who she has wed twice. Fantasia married the man she described as her “best friend” after dating for a brief time.
Fantasia Barrino Has A Wedding Bond!
She is a former American Idol champion, and is a married lady who has been married twice with her spouse; she remarried Kendall Taylor on Christmas Day in 2016.
The next day, she posted a photo of her and her spouse getting married on Instagram to celebrate her big day. By remarrying, the couple marked their one-year wedding anniversary in a special way.
The former American Idol star and the love of her life relived their wedding day twice. The same day, she posted a second Instagram picture with the caption “I can get married to Kendall again.” The heading stated,
“I would do it again and over again because I love you so much! I had no idea when I first met you! It’s almost as if I might have known you in a previous existence. We get along so well because we’ve been here before as if this love has already happened. We, therefore, did it AGAIN! The proper manner, so…Yes, I DO? #Love #shareyourlove”
Fantasia originally met Kendall Taylor, her husband, at a club, where they subsequently began dating. Before getting married, the pair dated for three weeks. On July 19, 2015, the couple exchanged vows in a charming ceremony on a yacht.
Stunning red flowers loaded with diamonds were used to decorate Fantasia’s first wedding, which was an amazing occasion. The bride, who had just entered a blissful union, posted a caption on Instagram in December 2016 that expressed her emotions.
“The Taylors are here. I sing with such passion in the song #SleepingWithTheOneILove because of him. My right hand, my defender.”
Despite their shared love, the couple has not had children as of yet.
Awful Situations And Failed Relationships
The 31-year-old artist had a sexual relationship with Zion Quari Barrino before exchanging sacred vows with Kendell Taylor. On August 8, 2001, she gave birth to a daughter named Zion Quari Barrino with her then-boyfriend.
She had previously given birth to a son named Dallas from her ex-husband, Antwuan Cook, so it wasn’t her first time being a parent. In a July 2016 interview with Billboard, the singer also discussed the impact of the separation from Antwaun.
She admitted that she tried to commit suicide by ingesting a bottle of aspirin because she felt so humiliated throughout the divorce proceedings. She was charged with house destruction, pregnancy, and sex recordings during the divorce trial.
Fantasia once more experienced a similar type of negative omen in September 2017. In Charlotte, North Carolina, her younger brother Xavier Barrino was involved in a motorbike accident and suffered grave injuries.
The 2018 ESSENCE Fest artist, who also shared on her social media, stayed by her brother’s side during his hospital and rehabilitation stays.
She soon had to deal with another family tragedy—the passing of her oldest nephew, Tyquan, who was the son of Fantasia’s musical brother, Ricco—while her brother was making a recovery.
However, despite these awful events in her life, the beauty has learned to move on and is now blissfully married to her closest friend.
