Fantasia Barrino is on the mend after a rough week in the hospital and on the blogs.
Fannie’s manager Brian Dickens announced that the singer is finally home after being treated for a drug overdose. “Fantasia has been released from the hospital,” he confirmed in a statement.
Monday night, the singer ingested too much aspirin and sleep medication in what police reported was a suicide attempt. This followed claims that she’d made a sex tape with ex-boyfriend Antwaun Cook, who is married with kids. The singer was then hit with a wave of harsh criticism from users on several gossip blogs and “Nancy Grace.”
However, Fantasia’s medical emergency did inspire sympathy from many of her devoted fans, which helped in her recovery. “She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans,” Brian stated. “She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.”
