When Fantasia introduced her new love Kendall Taylor to the world a few weeks ago, not even 24 hours had passed before it was revealed that he was a convicted felon.

Some of you love muffins didn’t think it mattered, while others were concerned that Fantasia was destined for another troubled relationship. Unfortunately when you choose to make certain things public you open them up to criticism and scrutiny.

Fantasia took to Instagram to defend her man and their love. She posted the above photo along with the caption:

YOU!!! & My Kids are the best… My kids are the Happiest I’ve Ever Seen.. 13 years of Doing it All Alone with Zion NOT BY CHOICE.. I have a Son who’s Father is Great!! He is an Amazing Dad and THAT I can’t take AWAY from Him.. Thanks Cook????

I Love This Man And He is Crazy about me also he HATES WHEN I POST HIM cause he’s not about that life..

As we told you before, Kendall mentors young boys who are offenders through the MOVE program in Charlotte — so maybe he has indeed turned his life around.

“Through his teen years, he began associating with what was considered as ‘the wrong crowd,’ his bio on the organization’s website states. “Kendall began experimenting with sex, drugs and alcohol. At the age of fifteen, he became a father…Lacking maturity and strong male guidance, Kendall began walking deeper into dark places. Places that robbed him of his education, his childhood and ultimately, his freedom. He was arrested and incarcerated in a facility hundreds of miles from home.”

“He began to clearly hear and respond to the call of God on his life,” the site claims. “He laid down the failures of his past and began to carry his cross for the sake of Christ.“

Well amen.
