Thirty-year-old R&B singer and actress Fantasia Monique Barrino’s ex-boyfriend, Brandel Shouse, has recently filed for custody of their 13-year-old daughter, Zion, in Meckleburg, North Carolina.
Fantasia, who rose to fame after winning the third season of America Idol, says she will fight the suit. She claims that Shouse never had a relationship with their daughter, nor has he ever paid child support. The couple split years ago after he pleaded guilty to domestic abuse.
The trial is set to transpire next year.
