Fantasia cancels Color Purple Performances

Fantasia, Oprah Winfrey

Singer Fantasia is taking some flack from critics for canceling her performances at this weekend’s Los Angeles run of “The Color Purple”. We have yet to hear from Fantasia’s camp about the recent cancellations. However, Fantasia, who recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, publicly acknowledged her regret for missing performances last year and discussed how it affected those who had bought tickets to see her.

Reports are surfacing that her boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, whom is currently married, flew into town the same night she called in sick to spend Valentine’s Day with her. We hope and pray that all is well with Fantasia.
