    Fantasia Barrino: Possible Suicide Attempt

    Oh no!
    Last night, former American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino was reportedly hospitalized after attempting to commit suicide.
    Officials in the Charlotte area responded to a call from her manager at 8:43 p.m. and quickly arrived at the star's home to find her in the closet.
    According to the police report, she was immediately taken to Mercy South Hospital at Carolinas Medical Center suffering from "possible internal injuries" after "ingesting medication."

    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.

    According to the report, it's unclear whether the OD was intentional or accidental.

    As we previously reported -- Barrino was recently accused of making a sex tape with a married man and destroying his marriage.

    Barrino has claimed she is "not responsible" for the deterioration of the marriage.

    Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized on Monday night after an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid, according to her manager, Brian Dickens.

    Barrino was recently accused of having an affair and making a sex tape with a married man, according to WCNC. She was named in the lawsuit between the man and his wife.

    “She was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and media attention,” Dickens said in a statement on Tuesday.

    He added that Barrino was also dehydrated and exhausted.

    Dickens said Barrino was stable and expected to be released from the hospital soon.

    She seemed to be flying high personally and career wise. Hoping she gets all the help she needs. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Prayers to you, Fantasia.

    How very sad for one so talented. I hope the fame that came on quick has not screwed up her life that this will be the result of it. We have seen many go down this road before. I wish her all the best.

    Very sad about her and the sex tape with the married guy. She has so much talent and did not need to be involved with this type of situation. I hope she gets all the help she needs. Also, I have heard she has spent a very large portion of her monies. This stress can't be helping her state of mind.

    Hope she gets the help she needs. She will, undoubedtly, have people flockinig around her now, offering that help, due to who she is. How sad for the rest of those who suffer who aren't famous, and don't get the media exposure (i.e. help).

    As far as the affair...it takes two. It takes two to start an affair, have an affair, break up a marriage -- well, it might take 3 (or possibly 4) to break up a marriage, especially if both spouses are having an affair. It's all about taking responsibility for your actions.

    Fantasia went from poverty to instant fame and this married man hung on to her for the fame, IMO...she is facing an alienation of affection lawsuit, which if the spouse can prove, may take Fantasia to the poor farm, once again.

    I have my doubts that this man might have done this for that purpose alone. He travelled around with her, she wined and dined him, as he told her he was separated and heading for a divorce. Only, I believe he was dipping with both woman and I truly hope, he didn't set Fantasia up...

    I also believe this was accidental. She took aspirin with a sleep aid, was dehydrated and exhausted, would have compounded the effects of the drugs. It's not like she took a handful to end her life, I don't think she'd do that for her child is very important to her..JMHO

    Stand tall, Fantasia and fight this battle, stand up for yourself and tell that divorce judge the marriage was already failed and falling apart before he started dating you. He's the one who was married, he promised to be faithful to his wife...so, I feel he played a bigger part in this than Fantasia who was just looking for love in all the wrong places...JMHO

    Too much drama for me. If she just took an aspirin with a sleep aid she wouldn't be visiting ER. Good luck to her.

    So....if you come across someone on the road who has been hit by a car (already wounded/injured -- like this guy's marriage), and YOU choose to deal the death blow to that person, are you not guilty of murder, because, "hey, they were already injured, they were probably going to die anyway..." What kind of logic is that?

    He may have lied to her (not sure about that). Let's say he did. The real question is, once she found out he lied, did she continue to see him, or end the affair? That, to me, would speak volumes towards her character.

    Do we know, exactly how many pills she took? I agree, if she took two aspirin and two sleeping aids, then, yeah, this was an accident. Anything else, and you have to wonder.

    i see what your saying, but i really think that his relationship is/was his responsibility and also the woman he was married to... yeah, fantasia should have ended it when she knew that he was lying to her - but i think that is easier said than done and that she should not financially wiped out because of it. i dont think that the "wife" should be able to prosper financially off of fantasia because i think that she (wife) also had the responsibility to leave the cheating, lying husband as soon as she knew that he was lying to her too...kwim? i dont think she would even attempt the civil suit if she thought fantasia was just some average un-famous person... the common denominator problem for both of these women is the man... he is the one that lied to both of them... he is the one that was/is married...

    As the old saying goes - if you play with fire, you are going to get burnt. However, she may have totally believed he was separated from his wife and on the way to a divorce. I think the key is whether or not she believed he was actually separated. The old 'it's not a happy marriage' isn't gonna do it, but if she really thought he was living separately, that would be different IMO.

    Sorry, OhGal, you talking apples to oranges...Of course I wouldn't give a death blow to an already injured person! This is quite different...

    Fantasia was being led on by a married man. As far as she knew, he was separated, on his way to a divorce. She claims he even took her to his apartment, so she felt they were living apart. Yes, maybe she should have said, well, when your divorce is final, give me a call and walk away. Love knows no bounds at least on Fantasia's part. She wasn't the married on, he was. He had an obligation to his wife, not Fantasia, is what I'm saying.

    If Fantasia can prove this, this alienation of affection lawsuit may save her millions. One woman from NC just won a $9 million lawsuit from her husbands mistress...

    No, no, no....I was just saying that in response to you saying that she (Fantasia) didn't break up this guy's marriage -- it was already broken up. That's why I used the example of the hurt person and someone giving them the death blow because (like his marriage), it was already dying.

    Like I said, I don't know if she was lied to (and we'll never know. Only two people know the answer to that.) People lie all the time to get what they want. However, don't tell me that "oh, I was lied to....he lied to me...." and then continue to see him. Once you know the truth, you have a decision to make. If you decide to stay with the guy, then you're no better than him, and yes, responsible (for your part) in the breakup of the marriage. If she broke things off with him, I don't know, maybe he would have gone back to his wife, and tried to work things out. He can't cheat without a willing partner.

    However, I don't know (and you don't either) how any of this went down, so it's all just a matter of opinions...yours, mine, and everyone elses.
