Fantasia Barrino hospitalized with overdose


Just days after being accused of being a home wrecker for her alleged affair with a married man, Fantasia Barrino is in hospital seeking treatment for an overdose of aspirin and a sleeping aid.

“Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time,” Her manager Brian Dickens told People. “Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in North Carolina, Fantasia’s hospitalization is being classified as a suicide attempt.

The incident comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Fantasia is the center of a lawsuit as the reason Paula Cook’s marriage ended. Having denied allegations she was having an affair with Antwaun Cook, her manager now says she believed Cook was having problems and separated from his wife and proceeded to date him for 11 months.

According to the jilted wife, Fantasia and Antwaun also made a sex tape. Their “covert adulterous affair” led to the divorce, Paula maintains.

“Fantasia is a fighter and a survivor. This is not the hardest thing Fantasia has endured,” Brian Dickens added. “Fantasia will be stronger, smarter and better for it. Fantasia sends her praise to God and her eternal gratitude to her fans, friends, and family.”

Other celebrities who have had recent overdoses include Jennifer Capriati and Shawn King.

Other celebrities who have recently been in hospital for other reasons include Katy Perry, Cheryl Cole and Pink.
