Former American Idol champ Fantasia Barrino is hospitalized after overdosing on a combination of aspirin and a sleep aid, but her manager says her life isn't in danger. Fantasia had been distraught and "overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention" related to her affair with the married Antwaun Cook. The North Carolina police report called it a suicide attempt, reports TMZ.
"Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it," read the manager's statement. But now she is "heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused." Fantasia won Idol in 2004 and has had mixed success since. Her third album is due out later this month, notes AP.
