Fantasia’s Father Says She’ll Be Fine “My Daughter Just Needs Time”

Fantasia and her father

Just days after Fantasia tried taking her own life by ingesting aspirin and sleeping pills the singer is back home with her 9-year-old daughter.

Fantasia Barrino’s father Joseph Barrino was recently interviewed about his daughter’s status and he revealed that she is doing well, thanks largely to being reunited with her daughter, Zion. Barrino told RadarOnline :

“Zion was staying with both myself and her grandmother but she is back with Fantasia now.

“She is getting a lot of comfort with being with her daughter and the doctors have told her just to rest.

“My daughter just needs time – she is a strong girl and with God’s help she will be okay.”

Tasia’s Daddy also said his daughter is very appreciative of fans and well wishers who have been concerned about her since the overdose:

“Fantasia was pleased with all the messages of support from her fans but just now she just needs to rest and bring everything back together.

“This has been a difficult time but she will pull through.”

Tasia fans who watched her reality show “Fantasia For Real” may recognize her dad from an episode that aired last March where Fanny met with her father and told him “I need a man in my life and I want the man to be my dad.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Wonder what happened? Dad was supposed to be in the kitchen cleaning the shotguns when Antwaun came into the picture. SMH.

Good to hear that Fantasia is feeling better though and it’s great that she’s receiving the support of her family.

    I wonder if this debacle will be on her reality show. Are producers trying to edit “twuan” out of the show? You know he was in it.

    His daughter needs to pray and let the good Lord Above guide her and keep her.


    I think about her foundation and how it was primarly around religion and how she would talk about the goodness of God and how he kept her, so I’m just wondering didn’t she know that there is no man bigger than GOD, Fantasia you have got to learn to practice what you preach.

    Wanna know where people go to snag an i-nter-racial rel-ations-hip, say, Just for future reference? “i-nterr-acial Central”? “San Carlos” ? or “San Francisco”?*** BlackWhite Cupid C 0/om *** is the real place that is packed with them. ;)


    IS THIS THE SAME “FATHER” THAT SUED HER…Fantasia needs to clear ALL of the leaches out of her life and find some truly supportive friends and family. About Antuan or whatever his name is…come on how is she dating someone not even on her financial level….dude worked at T-Mobile…WTH!! He ain’t worth it !!!

    Barrino is Dominican just as Dominican as Sessilee Lopez. You just don’t like her because she is dark skinned like most Dominicans.

    Rosa Cordero, Zoe, Yaya Dacosta, all the same dark Dominicans looked down on by white Latinos.

    Hope she gets the help she needs and didn’t go permanent damage because an overdose of Aspirin can cause stomach bleeding and injure your kidneys. People thin aspirin are harmless but every year hundreds of people are rushed to the emergency rooms all over the country because of the terrible side affects of the common Aspirin. They can eat away the lining of your stomach. Fantasia Barrino can have lifelong health problems because of this unthinking decision.

    this is starting to sound like a publicity stunt. of course ppl are going to wish you well if you try to kill yourself esp since u have a child. i dunno, she was real funny acting about the union when asked about it in the beginning. now there is a statement everyday about it…

  • Green

    Being a Latino is okay, but being a human being that respects other is what important.




    Anybody looking down on YaYa Dacosta is a dayum fool. That girl is HOT.

  • Divatude
