Missouri fans of "American Idol" may remember the winner of the third season, Fantasia Barrino, who is now an R&B singer. She has a daughter who is now 13 years old. Recently, the girl's biological father filed child custody litigation.
Barrino and her daughter's father were a couple in high school. He was reportedly abusive toward the singer and even pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges. Now, he is asking the court for sole legal and physical custody of Barrino's daughter. He claims that he could raise their child better than Barrino.
