New York – Former “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized following an overdose. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the singer is said to be in stable condition after the incident, which came days after court documents surfaced in the media regarding an alleged affair with a married man.
Fantasia’s manager, Brian Dickens, is quoted by the AP as releasing the statement on Tuesday, “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.”
Dickens is further quoted as stating of the allegations against Fantasia made by Paula Cook, wife of Antwaun Cook, whom the singer has purportedly been in a relationship with for 11 months, “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 were separated late in the summer of 2009.”
