Fantasia has opened up about leaving the church at a young age. During last night's episode of TV One's Uncensored, the singer said, “I started getting picked on. I didn’t want to be the girl singing in the church and blessing people. I started seeking attention from the wrong guys. Dressing a way I never wanted to dress.”

She continued, “By 9th grade, that was it for me. I wanted to be loved. And I felt like the streets could give it to me.”
