Fantasia may be on the verge of getting slapped with a MEGA-MILLION-DOLLAR lawsuit.
According to mediatakeout.com, Antwaun Cook’s estranged wife is seriously contemplating bringing a lawsuit against Fantasia for stealing her husband, and she’s exploring using North Carolina’s anti-jumpoff law to bring it.
Here’s what they’re saying:
Only 7 states have what we’re referring to as the ANTI-JUMPOFF law (in legal circles it’s called “criminal conversion”), the states are North Carolina, Illinois, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Mexico, South Dakota and Utah.
But here’s why North Carolina’s anti-jumpoff law is so EFFECTIVE. Unlike the traditional “Alienation Of Affection” law, a jumpoff has virtually NO DEFENSE to a lawsuit brought under the ANTI-JUMPOFF law. For example, the jumpoff CAN NOT claim that they didn’t know the other person was married, or that the married man WAS SEPARATED from his wife, or that the wife was ALSO BEING UNFAITHFUL.
MediaTakeOut.com uncovered that under North Carolina’s law, if the wife can prove that she was VALIDLY married and that her husband had SEX with his jumpoff, then the jumpoff is AUTOMATICALLY liable for damages.
And North Carolina courts have offered BIG JUDGMENTS against jumpoffs. For example, in 2001 a jury awarded a distraught spouse $1.4 MILLION under the anti-jumpoff law.
