Fantasia Back Home After ‘Overdose’ Scare

American Idol Alum Fantasia Barrino has been released from the hospital and now back home after being admitted two days ago for attempting suicide. “She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans,” her manager Brian Dickens said. “She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.” Earlier today, someone leaked the 911 call audio tape to website TMZ, where a male voice (likely Dickens), is heard telling police, “An individual took a bottle of Aspirin and she is slowly losing consciousness.” When the operator asks if Fantasia was alone, he responds: “I’m outside, but somebody is with her inside.” When asked if she is bleeding, he says, “Yes.” He says she doesn’t have a weapon and is not violent. “She’s in the shower. Her family tried to put her in the shower to try to keep her awake until the paramedics get there,” the male says to the dispatcher, who responds, “Take her out of the shower and turn the water off.” The medical scare came just after Barrino, 26, was named in a court filing alleging that she was having an affair with a married man plus made a sex tape. The singer denied she was responsible for breaking up the marriage of Paula and Cook. Barrino says she believed Cook and his wife were separated, and is now “heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused.”
