Update: Fantasia "Doing Fine" After Overdose

Update: Fantasia

The people close to Fantasia Barrino say the former American Idol winner is recovering and "stable" after overdosing on aspirin and sleeping pills. The songbird's father, Joseph Barrino, tells Us Weekly his daughter is "doing fine" and People quotes Fantasia's manager, Brian Dickens, as saying she will be released from the hospital soon. 

Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time...Fantasia is stable now.

Dickens said he's confident the songbird will bounce back from the overdose.

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.

Fantasia's health scare came the same week she was accused of breaking up the marriage of a North Carolina couple, with the wife, Paula Cook, alleging in court papers that a sex tape proves Fantasia began an affair with her husband, Antwuan Cook, in August 2009. Fantasia denied she was the cause of the split.

What do you think about Fantasia's recent troubles? Let us know in the comments.

    I think she is looking for sympathy and attention and over dosing was her way of getting it ; if she really wanted to die am sure she would of done something more dramatic. The wife should sue her for everything she has.......... Sorry no sympathy here.


    I am happy Fantasia is recovering, there are always two sides with every story. Rumors come with the territory of being famous and for the people stating she is dead wrong, you don't know what's going on, so don't judge, only God can, you stupid peopld who say terrible things about others, need to get a life.

    I had no doubt that she was going to be ok. Had she really wanted to committ suicide, I am sure she would have succeeded. But guess what, she is back in the tabloids. Mission accomplished. btw...I hate her voice, she sounds like crap and looks even worse.

    Do bad things and it will bite you in the a**. He was wrong to cheat. She was horribly wrong to sleep with a man that she knew was married. He was married, unhappy in his marriage means he is STILL married. Seperated from his wife, means she is his WIFE and he is still MARRIED. Making a sex tape, with a man who is married to someone else, disgusting. Taunting his wife, key word here is WIFE, that he doesn't want her and he wants you, that was just plain evil. Fantasia was just dead wrong. She should have waited till the divorce (if he was really going to do it not because he got caught). DIVORCE means no longer married! Both she and he deserve what ever they get. Life is a bit*h especially if you behave like one.
