Fantasia's Daddy Sues for $10 Million
A clip from the Lifetime movie featuring Fantasia. I submit this clip to the Emmy voters for their consideration
American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino, put out her memoirs called "Life is Not a Fairy Tale" which chronicled her troubled childhood and her struggles as a young, single mother. Joseph Barrino, her father, is suing Simon & Schuster for his depiction in the book. He claims the book contains "false, exaggerated, sensational, intentional and malicious untruths."
Among the details disputed by Joseph Barrino: that he was hostile to the music industry, that he asks his daughter for money when she visits him, that his children's musical careers were more important than their education.
"The unfortunate publication of Fantasia's life story by Simon & Schuster seeks to capitalize on her American Idol success through disparaging certain members of her family. The lawsuit seeks to redress these wrongs and restore the integrity of the family members," Joseph Barrino's attorney, Kendall Minter, said Tuesday in a statement.
The book was made into a legendary telepic for Lifetime. This movie is seriously a work of art, because it's so bad.
Fantasia did not comment, because she did not read the book. She did not read the book, because she can't read.Source
