It’s been a rough week for Fantasia Barrino. She has been at the epicenter of a whirlwind of controversies. The allegations pitted against her are that she broke up the marriage of one Antwuan Cook, and that she recorded numerous sex tapes with him. Unfortunately the pressure may have proved too much for Fantasia, who was reported to be hospitalized for an overdose of sleeping aids and aspirin. The police report of the incident confirms it as a suicide attempt. TMZ has a harrowing 911 tape of the ordeal. The person (who is most likely her manager, Brian Dickens) on the tape asks for help as they moved the singer under a shower to keep her from losing consciousness.
Fortunately, Fantasia is now out of hospital and on the road to recovery. Her manager released a statement that quotes, “She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans. She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.”
We wish her the very best and know that she’ll pick herself right up.
