The other day R&B singer Fantasia Barrino revealed to her fans via Instagram that she has a new man in her life, and many have already been skeptical because her last public relationship went so bad that they can only hope Fantasia won’t get caught up a second time.
However, Fantasia’s new man Kendall Taylor was recently exposed and blogger B Scott was the one who did the digging.
B Scott writes:
Yes, that’s a mugshot of Fantasia’s new man.
A love muffin tipped us off about Mr. Taylor’s criminal past, so we did a little digging and here’s what we came up with.
He’s been convicted of a few things, including assault on a female and felonious possession of a weapon — with his most recent arrest being in January 2012 for failure to pay child support.
From what we’ve gathered, he’s never actually done time behind bars — just probation and community service.
It does appear that in recent years he’s been able to turn his life around — which is great, but hopefully Fantasia is well aware of her man’s past patterns of behavior.
Fantasia wasn’t happy with the blogger, so she clapped back on her Instagram account and cleared up some things:
Wait he assaulted a woman though? She needs to be careful. Very careful.
Yeah that’s the most troubling thing about all of this. How do we know he won’t hit Fantasia and most importably, how does she know?
So how long did she know him b4 she had dude around her kids and niece???? I don’t have any kids myself but single Mothers and Fathers need to be wary about who they allow around their kids especially if they have criminal pasts….another thing he owes child support…so he was being a dead beat dad….yeah only reason he giving Fantasia the time is cause he know she is dilly for a man and loves just having one. Cause if he couldnt take care of his own damn kids…if Fantasia was a regular chick he probably wouldn’t fck wit her but just to fck her
So he’s changed in two years? Oh ok.
Hmmmm. I’ve got mixed emotions about this. All I will say is that I hope nothing happens to where she’s made to eat her words. I don’t agree with digging up someone’s past, releasing it, or using it against them; But I also don’t agree with putting your personal life on blast via social media…especially when it’s done prematurely. Her track record with men isn’t the best which would cause this little display of happiness and support to be met with skepticism. But above all that I really do see something in her that causes me to HOPE she’s on the right track with this one…
If people lived their lives in real life without all this extra stuff man I swear there would be less chances of having to be so expressive to people who really don’t matter.
Fanny moves too fast. She falls in love like the first month of being with someone and it ends up hurting her in the end. I hope this guy doesn’t turn out to be another loser.
She’s laying it on real thick real early. Good luck with that Fanny.
“hoping for a reality tv show”. all over his face!!! He gives me them Nikko vibes!
Lol me too.
She needs to stop putting all these things on social media. We all know what happens the minute you profess your love for some dude u just met! K Michelle anyone????
I hope this doesn’t blow up in her face. I wonder how long they have been together.
I know people can change but after Antwaun, I do feel like it’s acceptable to be suspect about this man. But I’m glad she’s happy.
She just needs to keep her eyes and ears open.
I don’t know now. Something just isn’t right.
Hmmmm, so he hits women which means he’s disrespectful and immature and he evades child support which means he’s trifling and irresponsible. If I were her, I wouldn’t take this stuff lightly. This is indicative of the type of man she’s dealing with.
