Fantasia Hospitalized After Apparent Suicide Attempt

[img:$uid]http://i38.tinypic.com/jfhyeh.jpg[/img:$uid]

August 2010

Fantasia's manager says the singer has been hospitalized in stable condition after taking an overdose of "aspirin and a sleep aid."

Brian Dickens said in a statement Tuesday the former "American Idol" winner was heartbroken and "overwhelmed" after being named in a legal filing by a woman who accused her of breaking up her marriage.

Dickens says the 26-year-old Fantasia is "a fighter and a survivor" and will be released from a North Carolina hospital soon.

His statement didn't specify where Fantasia was taken.

I wonder if she even knew she could get charged for what she did.

Why does one part of me say this is a publicity stunt to promote her new album?

I'm more inclined to think it was an accidental overdose. She probably couldn't read the correct amount of doses she was supposed to take on the label.

I don't think she's trying to draw sympathy from the public in order to boost CD sales, but rather she was driven to suicide by the recent home wrecker label.

the only difference between her drama and most of ours is that it's public. We'd have been living in shame if our shit was on the Web too! lol

I wouldn't wish her problems on me. Then again I'm not that foolish to get with someone that I know had a marriage with someone else. I got my morals. lol

She's overwhelmed, she needs to take a chill pill and this shit will be over. But not if she keeps this shit up.

Here is the full statement: From Fantasia's people:


Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly.

Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it. She believed him when he told her he and Mrs. Cook separated in the late summer of 2009. She believed Mr. Cook when he told her he lived elsewhere.

He even took her there. One of Mr. Cook’s most redeeming qualities was his complete devotion to his children. Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her.

Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about eleven months. The pressure of the constant media attention was hard on their relationship. Fantasia gave inconsistent interviews about the status of her relationship with Mr. Cook because sometimes they were on and sometimes they were off.

When they were on, they spent most of their time together when she was not traveling with work.
Fantasia read Mrs. Cook’s Complaint against Mr. Cook for the first time yesterday. She knows some of the allegations in Mrs. Cook’s complaint are totally false. There are others she strongly doubts. There is plenty she does not know.

Fantasia is heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused.

Yesterday, she was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention. Last night, Fantasia was hospitalized. She took an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid.

Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time. Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon. Fantasia is a fighter and a survivor. This is not the hardest thing Fantasia has endured.

Fantasia will be stronger, smarter, and better for it. Her work has always inspired her and served as a source of strength. Her new album, “Back To Me,” will be released on August 24th.

It does seem like the perfect publicity stunt since her album is coming out soon. Also the second season of her reality show is currently being taped....lol
