American Idol season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino has been out and about showing off her new man. When she was first seen with him the media of course had to get involved. Some things were dug up about Kendall Taylor’s past and none of it was good. Radar Online did some digging and found a lot of dirt. Unfortunately for them Taylor’s story was already posted out for the world to see on MOVE’s website. MOVE is a mentoring program for boys and young men in Charlotte, NC.
At just fifteen years old Taylor started down a dark path. He experimented with drugs, bad behavior, and even became a father. He was not prepared for life as a father. He was barely prepared for life as a student at school. He ended up being arrested and put in jail. He was hundreds of miles from his home. Some of his past charges included bring a weapon onto school grounds, possession of a firearm as a felon, and two separate counts of assaulting a female.
While he was in jail Taylor said that he found God and began to mold his life around his faith. He was determined to make a better life for himself once he was free and he did exactly that. He has a stable full time job, he completed his education that he missed out on as a teen, and he has also been teaching not only his son but other young men about principles and ethics so that they don’t go down the same path that he went down.
After his story was discovered people began claiming that Barrino probably had no idea about his past and that if she knew the true person that he had been she may not be with him if she did know. Barrino responded with a message that stated that she knew all about his past and how he has turned his life around. She said his past is why she got together with him because it goes to show that someone can come from a bad past like she did and completely turn themselves around for the better. Fantasia also had a child at a very young age, 16, and had dropped out of high school.
