Fantasia overdose lands her in hospital

tasia_1_5All this drama regarding a wife accusing her of busting up her marriage has clearly stressed out Fantasia.

Just a month from the debut of the second season of  her VH1 reality show “Fantasia For Real,” Fantasia is presenting us with real drama in the form of a hospital visit after a prescription drug overdose.

Her spokesman confirmed a TMZ report. He said it was a combo of aspirin and sleep aid.

Radaronline obtained the police report.

Earlier this week, Paula Cook filed a lawsuit accusing her husband Antwaun of cheating on her with Fantasia and even implied there were sex tapes in the mix. Fantasia’s lawyer then accused Cook of seeking publicity by throwing Fantasia under the bus although he said Fantasia was not the reason the Cooks were having problems.

The quote from TMZ, courtesy of Fantasia’s manager:

“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 is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”

Will any of this end up on the reality show? We shall see.

If you see a link to video titled “Fantasia denies role in breakup” – do NOT, under any circumstances, click the link.

Praying your strength Fantasia. In a world full of insensitive, self-loathing, uneducated, bitter people…it’s understandable how the weight of it all can consume you. You’re better than this and you’re going to get through it. As long as you know what the truth is, the opinions and lies of others don’t matter.

So did Mrs. Cook go through an episode like this after she was victimized? No, and let’s face it Fantasia is not the victim here her narcissistic episode is nothing more than fakeitis.

She is a Cheater

The truth is Fantasia chose to have a sexual relationship with a man who was legally married to someone else and had a FAMILY. She could have at least waited until the divorce was final, or find someone else. There are too many men in this world to bother with someone who is already taken. I think she needs to take a break from the reality shows for awhile.

I dont agree with Fantasia getting involved with a married man. However, the wife needs to admitt to the pre-existing marital problems. Her deteriorating marriage didnt begin with Tasia and it probably wont end with her.

Only weak minded people are easily swayed by media reports…which are more than 50% inaccurate. The only people that know the truth about their marriage are the people involved…Mr. and Mrs. Cook. I don’t condone adultery either but this particular piece is about a young woman at her obvious wits end who needs help. I guess all of you “perfect” people can’t relate…how sad.

HE is married, not her, HE took vows, not her. The wife should blame her husband. I hate when the wife blames the other woman. If it weren’t for HIM being a cheater, the situation would never have happened. I don’t agree with going outside the marriage, nor do I condone the “other” woman cheating with HIM, however, it is HIM that is responsible, not the other woman. She doesn’t owe the wife jack, but HE does……..

I believe that this young lady is an excellent performer whom the public is making a snap judgment about. She is not garbage or any other derogatory name she is being called in the below comments. Obviously something is very wrong if she has overdosed on any medications. However, we need to let God judge. Frankly I pray she gets better physically, mentally and most of all spiritually. We have all been pressed down by life and thankfully not destroyed.

BTW, missed posting on the previous thread so here goes:

I don’t see Casey as a Country artist. It seems the ‘powers that be’ always want to put anyone with a Blues-Rock vibe into that box! …But of course, that’s what ‘they’ thrive on. Most recording executives haven’t caught on to the fact that a lot people listen to different kinds of music – Rock, Rhythm & Blues (Soul), Country, etc.

So, a musician doesn’t really have to pigeon-hole themselves in one genre.

Roz – read the David Sedaris piece. Now there’s a real entertainer!
OMG – “she is still a human being”… there’s a great show on BBC (tonight, yet!) called “Being Human”. It’s about the ups and downs of three rommmates – one a vampire, one a werewolf and one a ghost. Rigt now, the ghost has a crush on the vamp, who looks a bit like the King of Mississippi’s consort in “True Blood.” Hot!

Agree with your post of 5:57 Deirdre.

If unknowingly you start dating a married person, then find out, it’s still wrong, so don’t continue. If you start an affair KNOWING the person is married, then you are either dumb or just plain have no respect for yourself or others.

And, I’m sorry, but if someone wants to OD, use something stronger than asprin and prescription drug, and be sure to take enough to do the job and don’t seek help if you are serious about ODing..

It doesn’t matter what she looks like…albeit pretty bad…it has to do with the fact that this is publicity, plain and simple. Look at what she took. Aspirin and a sleep aid…probably OTC. Some people will do anything to see their name in print, even negative print. She can’t sing, so she has to do something. I thought she was such a good, Christian woman. Looks like THAT went out the window when she laid down with a married man.
