The singer-songwriter is the ex-girlfriend of 2018 Islander Jack Fowler, 26.
The curly-haired beauty had been in a nine-year relationship with her childhood sweetheart before they split so she could focus on music.
She then dated former Islander Jack for a few months, but their romance fizzled out.
Antigoni has referenced her love life in her music, including the single Red Flag, which she released earlier this year.
The song is about her desire to meet men with “red flags” so as not to fall in love fresh out of a long-term relationship.
