It seems Fantasia has a piece of utter shit for a father and I don’t feel I’m being the least bit slanderous saying as much. Frankly, given all the therapy I’ve had over the years for sexual abuse, Fantasia’s recent drama is TEXTBOOK abuse-victim behavior. Read for yourself and tell me what you think:
“Singer Fantasia Barrino’s father has stunned the star’s fans by going public with his thoughts about his daughter’s teen rape ordeal. The “Baby Mama” singer was assaulted in her school auditorium by a fellow student she has never named and admits the experience initially left her numb.
In a candid new interview filmed for VH1 documentary series Behind the Music, Barrino recalled, “I didn’t even cry on my way home; I was numb… (I was) confused. I just felt nasty, disgusting.”
Her mother, Diane, offered her distressed daughter a shoulder to cry on – but her father split the family with his reaction.
Diane recalls, “She (Fantasia) broke down, started crying and told me what happened. I held her and cried with her and prayed with her but of course I was devastated.”
But her dad, Joe, wasn’t as sympathetic.
Barrino explains, “He said, ‘If you wouldn’t have been running around with those little dresses on it would have never happened.’ That was the last thing I wanted to hear him say.”
Joe Barrino even agreed to be interviewed for the documentary and stated, “I’m not putting the blame on her, (**YES HE IS.** – DiC) but when you’re dressing like that, you’re saying, ‘Hey, there’s a party over here.'”
Wow. This statement from Joe (“My Daughter DESERVED to be RAPED”) Barrino sheds a whole new light on his daughter’s entire life, doesn’t it? Hmmm…Fantasia was too ashamed to go back to school after her horrific ordeal, soon afterward had a baby at 16–without any kind of support for her daughter’s father, allowed members of her family to mooch off of her earnings from her American Idol success–and almost losing her home, falls in love with a married (“hey, Baby…me and my wife ain’t together no more!”) man, the shit hits the very public fan, and Fantasia attempts to commit suicide–THEN has to immediately discuss every sordid detail on TV because she has a new cd dropping. Nice how everyone (including her record label, J/Arista Records?) seems to be taking advantage of Fantasia. Y’all should be ashamed.
Remember this performance by Fantasia on American Idol? (Oh, how I loved Quentin Tarantino as the Guest Judge. If you’re a fan of his films (and by God, you better be), you KNOW that dude knows music. ANYReservoirDogsAndPulpFiction.)
Oh, and Joe Barrino? EFF YOU.
Girl needs some therapy. STAT.
Go ahead, y’all. Come at me. I’m ready. Like I’ve said before: I brought my dancing shoes–I can dance all night.
