Former ‘American Idol’ contestant Fantasia Barrino is not having a very good week – and it’s only Tuesday. This morning we told you about the scandal she’s currently involved in regarding an alleged affair with a married man (and a possible sex tape), now this afternoon it’s being reported that she was rushed to the hospital last night over a possible drug overdose.
As I was writing this, Fantasia’s rep confirmed that she was hospitalized, but it was not as serious as the media outlets were claiming. Her rep says that she accidentally overdosed on aspirin and a sleep aid.
“Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time,” Dickens said. “Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”
I certainly hope this was an accident and not intentional. All of this negative press isn’t healthy for anyone. We wish her a speedy recovery.
Updated: TMZ says that the police report states “suicide attempt”. I hope it’s a misunderstanding. How scary.
