Well Fanny’s finally revealing details on their courtship and sharing that they wed after only THREE WEEKS of dating. According to the singer she knew that Kendall, whom she met at a nightclub, was the one for her after he prayed for her.
She also revealed that they were celibate until their wedding night.

Billboard reports:

“Everything changed when I met him,” she says. The connection was instantaneous: Just three weeks after meeting at a local club, the pair wed in 2015.

The brief courtship was intense, fulfilling — and ­celibate; they didn’t consummate the ­relationship until their wedding night, she ­confides. “I just knew [he was the one]. I was getting ready to go on the road, and he got on his knees and said, ‘Can I pray for you? I just want to cover for you down the road.’

In the time I’d been fasting from relationships, I asked God for ­someone to pray for me — ­someone that could cover me and my kids [Dallas, 4, and Zion, 14] and be the man of the house. That’s when I knew.”

Just a week ago Fanny and Kendall celebrated their one year wedding anniversary.

In her Billboard interview Fantasia also spoke candidly on her previous relationship with Antwaun Cook whose divorce trial publicly humiliated her and led to a suicide attempt.
Billboard reports:

And while her career initially flourished, bad decisions — both ­professional and personal — took their toll. The situation came to a head in the spring of 2010 during the divorce trial of her then-boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, with allegations and accusations of home-wrecking, pregnancy and sex tapes.

The humiliating public scrutiny culminated on Aug. 9, 2010, when Fantasia attempted suicide by downing a bottle of aspirin. “I was a broken woman,” she says.

Her personal rebuilding began when she ­channeled that pain into her first Grammy-winning song, “Bittersweet” in 2011, but that was just the start of the healing process.

Daily affirmations posted on her mirror — “You are strong,” “You are wise” — and a copy of self-help bible The Power of Now keep her grounded today.

Fanny’s been through a LOT, it’s nice to see her happy and doing much better.
