“Heartbroken” And “Overwhelmed” Fantasia Rushed To Hospital After Overdosing On Pills!

- By Bossip Staff

Poor Thang! Fantasia had to be hospitalized last night after what is being called a “medication overdose.” WOW!

According to TMZ reports:

Fantasia Barrino was rushed to a North Carolina hospital last night where she was treated for a “medication overdose,” this according to WCNC.com.

According to the report, Barrino was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville around 8:55 PM … the report says her condition was not life-threatening.

It’s unclear whether the OD was intentional or accidental.

Tasia has been under a lot of pressure lately, including accusations that she shares responsibility for ruining the relationship of alleged lover Antwaun Cook and his estranged wife Paula Cook, and that the pair videotaped themselves performing illicit acts.

Fantasia has denied playing a role in the deterioration of the Cook marriage.

Reps for Fantasia have confirmed that she’s been hospitalized, apparently the overdose was the result of her taking aspirin and a sleep-aid.

The rep just released a statement saying Fantasia ingested the medication after feeling “overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention” surrounding her relationship with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Antwaun Cook … who happens to be married.

The statement continues,”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.”

The rep also explains that Fantasia “believed” Antwaun Cook when he told her “he was not happy in his marriage [to Paula Cook] and his heart was not in it.”

Here’s the statement in its entirety:

Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly.

Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her 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 separated in the late summer of 2009. She believed Mr. Cook when he told her he lived elsewhere.

He even took her there. One of Mr. Cook’s most redeeming qualities was his complete devotion to his children. Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her.

Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about eleven months. The pressure of the constant media attention was hard on their relationship. Fantasia gave inconsistent interviews about the status of her relationship with Mr. Cook because sometimes they were on and sometimes they were off.

When they were on, they spent most of their time together when she was not traveling with work.
Fantasia read Mrs. Cook’s Complaint against Mr. Cook for the first time yesterday. She knows some of the allegations in Mrs. Cook’s complaint are totally false. There are others she strongly doubts. There is plenty she does not know.

Fantasia is heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused.

Yesterday, she was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention. 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. 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. Her work has always inspired her and served as a source of strength. Her new album, “Back To Me,” will be released on August 24th.

The lyrics to “I’m Here” say it best:
“I Believe I Have Inside Of Me
Everything That I Need To Live A Bountiful Life
With All The Love Inside Of Me
I’ll Stand As Tall As The Tallest Tree
And I’m Thankful For Each Day That I’m Given
Both The Easy And The Hard Ones I’m Livin’
But Most Of All
Yes, I’m Thankful For Lovin’ Who I Really Am”

Fantasia sends her praise to God and her eternal gratitude to her fans, friends, and family.

God is good.

SMH. At shady azz Antwaun Cook, lying to his wife AND Fantasia!

These meds are not to be played with. Get well soon Fanny… Zion needs you!

    why is she denying this? i live in charlotte, nc and her affair has been known for years…guess she’s afraid of NC’s spousal abandonement law where the wife is able to sue the mistress for alienation of affection…thats what happens when you’re a homewrecker

    It’s not worth it. No man, or person, is worth your integrity and your life.

    Wonder if this has anything to do with her newfound Homewrecker status. Maybe she couldn’t take knowing she was about to lose the little gwap she currently has.
