Fantasia Barrino’s overdose may have been an attempted suicide. The news is devastating as the American Idol winner is a role model for many and has tons of adoring fans.

TMZ reports that the singer was feeling overwhelmed by the media attention surrounding her after the reports of an affair and a sex tape with married man, Antwaun Cook, came out.

Apparently it all got to be too much for her and she overdosed on aspirin and a sleep aid. A rep has issued the following statement.

The statement says, “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.”

Her rep also clarified that Fantasia was led to believe that Antwaun “was not happy in his marriage [to Paula Cook] and his heart was not in it.” She says that Barrino thought Antwaun and Mrs. Cook separated at the end of summer of 2009, and they were no longer living together.

You can read the full statement here, it is a bit lengthy but goes into great detail. It ends with “Fantasia sends her praise to God and her eternal gratitude to her fans, friends, and family.”

I hope Fantasia gets the help and support she needs. She is a talented young woman, and no matter what happened, hurting yourself is never the answer. Get well soon.

    I think that Cook and his wife singled fantasia out. How did the sex tape get out? I think Cook has something to do with this whole situation. It was planned they just wanted money.
