The American singer-songwriter, Fantasia Barrino’s ex-boyfriend Brandel Shouse is the father of her first child, Zion Quari Barrino and she is a beautiful grown-up seventeen years old teen now. Brandel and Fantasia have known each other since they were in high school. That’s how they met and started dating.
Brandel has a low profile compared to Fantasia who has subsequently made her fame in music. There is less trace of Brandel but as far as we know, the couple dated from 1998 to 2003. The couple had their first daughter on August 8, 2001, when Fantasia was seventeen years old. As of now, Fantasia has been married to Kendell Taylor since 2015 and also has a 2-year-old son, Dallas Xavier Barrino.
Fantasia Barrino’s Ex-Boyfriend Brandel Shouse
Brandel Shouse has a normal public figure who doesn’t get much involved in media gossip. He ended up his relationship with Fantasia before she reached to fame level as an American Idol Winner in 2004. There are no details about their relationship, but their failed relationship may have something to do with her career.
But some source revealed that they parted ways due to domestic abuse. Was Fantasia mistreated badly by Brandel? Back in 2003, Brandel tried to prove himself not guilty of physically abusing Fantasia. We are eager to hear from Fantasia herself.
Though Brandel has nothing to do with Fantasia’s fame and popularity, he doesn’t escape from the discussion when it comes to Fantasia’s past relationship. Since she is a star singer, there is no doubt people could stop looking about her past relationship.
Brandel Shouse Filed The Custody For His Daughter
Back in 2014, Brandel Shouse had reportedly filed a lawsuit against Fantasia for his daughter in Mecklenburg, North Carolina. He claimed that as a mother, Fantasia had been an unfit mother to the teen. It’s been over 16 years since the couple moved apart and Brandel shared during the news of custody that he couldn’t have his daughter for over 13 years.
Child Custody is always complex. However, it was decided that the couple would wait for Zion’s interest. There is no proper record of what outcome they faced, but it looks like Brandel’s daughter Zion seems to like spending time with her mother. During Fantasia’s concert, Zion performed a dance with her mother on the stage.
Brandel’s daughter Zion has completely transformed her looks which have caught the media attention lately. She has shared the video on YouTube where she comes live with Q&A.
