The Truth About a Former American Idol Contestant’s Drug Charges
In October of 2018, Antonella was involved in a drug bust that took place in Virginia where the police suspected a California man, Justin Michael Isaac, to be the source of the large quantities of cocaine and heroin that were being distributed. The police listened in on a phone call where they heard Isaac saying that he was going to be sending a woman to deliver these drugs.
Once they learned this information, law enforcement approached a rental car where Barba was sitting in when a drug dog alerted the authorities and they proceeded to search the vehicle. Found on the flood of the passenger side was a closed shoebox. When the box was opened, the police found a “rock-like white substance.” This was later determined to be fentanyl, and the total weight of the drug was 830.9 grams.
Upon hearing her charge, Barba’s family and friends have said that fame at a young age and her move to Hollywood after American Idol were “a recipe for disaster.”
