Fantasia Hospitalized After 'Medication Overdose'

Fantasia Hospitalized After 'Medication Overdose'

Fantasia Barrino has been hospitalized after what her rep called a “medication overdose”.

The 26-year-old singer’s condition is reportedly not life-threatening.

Fantasia‘s hospitalization on Monday coincided with a North Carolina woman’s allegations that her husband had an affair with Fantasia and broke up their marriage.

Her lawyer said the woman used Fantasia‘s name to “sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids” (via People).

  • Jonte

  • j

    yiikes.. very scary and sad. I don’t envy anyone in hollywood, life behind the scenes is most of the time very sad and many of the celebritys have deep personal problems. I hope she gets well!

    The limelight isn’t always what its cracked up to b…..the pressure really gets u sometimes.
    Get well soon Fantasia, great talent..”When I c u” dats ma jam.

  • Taylor

    I find that sad but very selfish. She has a child with no father. What was her kid supposed to do?

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …i’m sorry, but i don’t give a fcuk about this chick. another idiot who’s career failed years ago. cant feel sorry for someone stupid enough to put themselves in this situation.

  • hannah

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l: Fine if you don’t care for her but why do you have to be so cold about it? Suicide is a horrible ongoing issue. You took time out to comment so you do care a bit. She’s not the brightest crayon in the pack but she’s always seemed sweet to me I don’t understand the hate and mocking she has always gotten : [

  • Dominic

    I guess this is one instance where not being able to read helps. She couldn’t read the right dosage to take in order to kill herself.

  • Tor

    I hope she get well.
    Karma is a bitch.

  • Wow

    Are you serious……..her scandal was all over the tv and press yesturday…we have no other choice to BTW you don’t understand the HATE…really ..she was with a married man! Imean it is sad that she overdosed but really was it just a ploy to have the heat on her go away? If she did try to commit suicide it means she really is selfish person not only having an affair with a married man but leaving her child behind….I really hope she gets her act together esp for her child!

  • :(

    Thats so sad. Pray for her mental health

  • Ashley

    How selfish doesn’t she have a daughter? I feel bad for the I’d not her.

  • Baloney

    It wasn’t a suicide attempt. It was a “non-life threatening” “medication overdose”. My guess is it was a ploy on her part to win back some sympathy in the face of the bad press coming out about how she had a lot to do with breaking up a marriage via adultery. Looks like it’s working too.

  • Maria


    I am thinking the same thing, especially how her manager keeps releasing updates and her family publicly talking about it. Most of the time, they keep it on the DL.

  • black

    SInce when have drugs magically changed into medication?

  • sad

    she needs some real love and care :(


    I dont condone anyone knowingly having an affair with someone married but she did not break up their marriage it was the mans choice..they never blame the man

  • Lechelle

    I agree wholeheartedly they never blame the man. After all he was the one in a marriage not her. he was the one responsible for upholding his vows not fantasia so I think everyone with all the negative comments about her need to fall back.
