Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized this week in North Carolina after an alleged suicide attempt. The season 3 American Idol champ apparently overdosed on aspirin and sleeping medication in an attempt to end her life. Her suicide attempt occurred on the same day that she denied allegations of an adulterous affair. Keep reading for more details on Fantasia Barrino’s personal troubles…

According to Fantasia Barrino’s manager, the American Idol star is recovering from a suicide attempt in a Charlotte, North Carolina hospital. On Monday night, around 8:55pm, Fantasia Barrino was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville after overdosing on aspirin and sleeping medication.

Fantasia Barrino’s manager, Brian Dickens, assures her fans that the singer will be just fine. ”Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time,” Brian Dickens said. “Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”

According to the police report filed at the time of the incident, Fantasia Barrino was being treated for a “suicide attempt.” The medical scare came on the same day that Fantasia Barrino denied breaking up the marriage of her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Antwuan Cook. Although the pair dated off and on for 11 months, Fantasia Barrino denies having a hand in the dissolution of Antwaun’s marriage to wife, Paula. On Tuesday, Fantasia’s manager issued a statement that she was ”heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused. Yesterday she was totally overwhelmed with the lawsuit and the media attention.”

Now, Fantasia Barrino needs to focus on recovering from her recent medical scare. According to her manager, ”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. Fantasia sends her praise to God and her eternal gratitude to her fans, friends, and family.”
