One church worker is eating his words and issuing a public apology to Fantasia Barrino.
Earlier this year, Matthew Herman of The Harvest Family Church in Charlotte accused Fannie and her manager, Brian Dickens, of backing out on a gig after getting paid $15,000.
Over the weekend, however, he changed his tune via Twitter, the very medium he used to slander their names. And just for good measure, Matthew repeatedly stated their names so that it was crystal clear to whom he was apologizing.
"I, Matthew Herman, would like to offer my most sincere and humble apology to Brian Dickens, BD Management and to Fantasia," Matthew tweeted. "On March 14, 2012, I posted false and harmful statements about Brian Dickens, BD Management and Fantasia to my Matthewwrites twitter account."
With Fantasia and Brian’s names sufficiently cleared, Matthew went on to explain why his accusations from March were incorrect:
"Neither Brian Dickens or BD Management ever confirmed an appearance date for Fantasia to appear," he stated online. "Additionally, neither Brian Dickens or BD Management cancelled a scheduled appearance by Fantasia as she was never scheduled to appear."
Since Fantasia was never booked for a gig at the Harvest Family Church, Matthew said she was never at any point paid to perform.
"Neither Brian Dickens or BD Management were ever paid by or took any money at any time from Harvest Family Church," Matthew tweeted. "Any statements by me suggesting that a $15,000.00 check was taken by Brian Dickens or BD Management simply is not true."
