Fantasia Barrino News

    Fantasia Barrino, 26, has been hospitalized following a drug overdose, according to TV station WCNC in Charlotte. Barrino's condition was not life-threatening, WCNC reported. TMZ reported that Barrino's representative confirmed the 2004 American Idol winner was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville last night for a "medication overdose." Barrino was recently named in court papers as being responsible for breaking up a marriage. Herrepresentative released a statement saying the singer took the medication after feeling "overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention" surrounding her relationship with a married North Carolina man named Antwaun Cook.


     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." In a divorce petition filed last week, Paula Cook singled out Barrino's "covert adulterous affair" with her husband as the reason for the breakup of her marriage to Antwaun Cook. She says Barrino once told her over the phone, "He don't want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you'll know how to keep him. That's why he is here with me." Barrino has denied any involvement in the split.
