Fantasia Barrino is in stable condition in a North Carolina hospital after she took an overdose of aspirin and and a sleeping pill. This is according to her former manager.

Just days before the overdose, Fantasia was named in court documents by Paula Cook who accused her of having an affair with her husband, Antwaun Cook.

On Tuesday, Fantasia’s manager Brian Dickens said that she was:

“overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention. Last night, Fantasia was hospitalized. She took an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid. Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time.”

Fantasia did in fact have a relationship for 11 months with Cook. She was led to believe what he told her which was that “he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not into it.” Cook had also told Fantasia that he and Paula were separated summer of 2009.

Fantasia won American Idol in 2004 and is about to release her third album, Back to Me on August 24. Her promotional work was set to happen this week but has now been cancelled.

She has fallen on hard times again, but she will pick herself back up and move on from all this. She is a survivor.
