Fantasia Barrino wants you to know… she is not pregnant.
After the singer posted a photo online of her holding her stomach — a few days before her performance at the 2012 Essence Festival — rumors quickly spread that Barrino was once again pregnant by boyfriend Antwaun Cook.
But the American Idol winner hit the web to dispel the gossip as hearsay, setting the record straight that she is not with child.
“I’m not pregnant,” wrote Barrino on her Instagram account. “I’m not sad, I’m not being cheated on. I don’t cry on stage because I’m hurt! It’s ‘cause I give God the praise.”
Barrino and the still-married Cook already have a son together.
