American Idol star Fantasia Barrino has provoked speculation that she is a married woman following a whirlwind romance with new boyfriend Kendall Taylor.

The 30-year-old singer, who was reportedly left serverely depressed in the wake of her split from Antwaun Cook - the married father of her son Dallas - introduced her new man to fans on Instagram earlier this month.

Posting a snap of Taylor wearing a suit, she described him as "a very special presence" and the man of her dreams.

"I began to think that I would only feel that kind of love in my Dreams.. Well I don't have that dream anymore because he came," she gushed.

The couple sent the rumour mill into overdrive after they were both spotted wearing rings on their wedding finger.

"She's madly in love with him," a source told the American Sun-Times.

Additionally, celebrity gossip site MediaTakeOut.com reports that the Lose to Win singer eloped with her new beau after just weeks of dating.

If the wedding reports are to be believed, then it would be Barrino's first trip down the aisle. She has previously dated Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx and hip hop star Young Dro.

Her turbulent romance with Cook ended in 2013 when he went back to his estranged wife, Paula.
