Despite a suicide attempt that was partially blamed on her relationship with Antwaun Cook, Fantasia Barrino was back together with the still-married man within 24 hours of leaving the hospital. The two were spotted “having a heart-to-heart,” as Radar puts it…conveniently enough, the whole thing was filmed for Barrino’s VH1 reality show, Fantasia For Real.

Barrino’s drug overdose followed on the heels of Cook breaking up with her—and his wife accusing her of breaking up their marriage. But now Cook is moving out of his wife’s home, and a source says he and Barrino are talking marriage—“once his divorce is finalized,” of course. Most insane quote from the Radar story? A source says, “Although she tried to take her own life recently, she has a really busy schedule to focus on with both her reality show and the release of her new album this month too.”
