FANTASIA BARRINO has admitted she got pregnant by her married lover ANTWAUN COOK and had an abortion around the time of her failed suicide attempt reports The American Idol winner made the sensational confession in a North Carolina court on Monday during Cook’s divorce proceeding with his ex-wife Paula.

Facing questions before a Mecklenburg County Court judge, the famous singer, 26, was pressed on whether she knew Cook was living with Paula when they embarked on their illicit affair.

Fantasia acknowledged she dated Cook "off and on for about 11 months" but said she believed he had separated from his wife.

But with reporters and witnesses barred an onlooker confirmed that Fanatsia made the explosive confession that she had an abortion.

In court, lawyers for the scorned wife pressed Fantasia about a hotel rendezvous that took place just a few days after meeting one another.

As The ENQUIRER previously reported, Fantasia – who is still dating Antwaun – attempted to kill herself in August by taking an overdose of aspirin after reading a court complaint filed by Paula naming her as a home wrecker.

 "It just became heavy for me, so I just wanted to be away from the noise," Fantasia said.
