The father of Fantasia’s 13-year-old daughter Zion is suddenly going after custody of the child, according to Rumor Fix.

The website says it has been provided “an official statement” via Fantasia’s rep indicating that she, “is currently involved in a child custody, visitation, and child support legal proceeding filed in Mecklenburg, North Carolina.”

The baby daddy, Brandel J. Shouse, “has very little personal contact with Zion and has provided no financial support for her,” the rep stated, according to the website.

“Fantasia is confident that legal process will move forward smoothly and that the Court will make a decision that is in the best interest of Zion.”

The case will not be heard until 2015.

The rep managed to get in a plug for one of Fantasia’s songs, adding: “Fantasia hopes that her fans understand the sensitive nature of these matters and that she cannot share with them all of the details at this time. Fantasia also knows that all of her ‘Baby Mama’ fans know exactly what she is going though and will support her as she continues to take wonderful and complete care of her daughter.”

Shouse, 30, reportedly dated Fantasia for five years until they broke up in 2003. The singer is currently in a relationship with Kendall Taylor.

    It’s all about the Benjamins. If he gained custody, he would immediately file for child support, enough to upgrade his life style substantially.

  2. He has contributed absolutely NOTHING to Zion for the past 13 years and very little personal contact with his own child. What does that tell you, he must be down on his money and looking for a free ride. People like this only end up hurting the child.

  3. The wording “baby daddy” is inappropriate. This description would not have been used to describe other cultures on other websites or newspapers. Show some class also by stating Fantasia’s name correctly.

    And, Fantasia”s daughter’s father would have been a more respectful description.

    I’m not the biggest Fantasia fan in the world, but I find it strange that sites run by “us” always seem to cast her in the most derogatory light possible. The phrase “the baby daddy” should never have been used in this article. It’s insulting and degrading (along with calling her “Fanny”). Do better BlackAmericaWeb.
