Fantasia Barrino Hospitalized After Overdose

The winner of American Idol’s third season was hospitalized after overdosing on aspirin and a sleep aid Monday night in what news sources are referring to as an “apparent suicide attempt.” Barrino’s father and manager said the singer is “doing fine” and that “her injuries are not life-threatening.” Earlier this week, Barrino was named in a court filing that alleged she had an affair and made a sex tape with Antwaun Cook, a married man, leading to Cook’s divorce. Barrino has denied she is responsible. [MTV News]
