Fantasia Barrino Attempts Suicide

“American Idol” alum Fantasia Barrino was caught up in a bit of a sex tape scandal with married man, Antwuan Cook. She reportedly got “Cook” tattoo’d onto herself after being photographed with him in Barbados.

His wife, Paula, then started blabbing to tabloids that Fantasia and Antwuan’s sexcapades were caught on tape. Last night, Fantasia was rushed to a hospital in North Carolina after swallowing a mixture of what was said to be aspirin and a sleep aid.

She’s said to be currently in stable condition and it wasn’t revealed as to what kind of sleep aid she took.

What has us wondering is why she did it? Was the sex tape info made public to boost sales for her new album coming out? Or was that the cause of her suicide attempt?

It was said that her overdose was due to being overwhelmed by a lawsuit brought on by Paula Cook for criminal conversion. What that means basically is that Paula is suing Fantasia for having sex with a married man, her husband. That reportedly overpowered her and made her want to end it all.
