Fantasia OD'ed On Aspirin & Sleep Aids! Confirms Affair With Married Man!

| Filed under: DrugsAmerican IdolFantasiaSad Sad


This is really sad.

Following the reports that Idol alum Fantasia attempted to commit suicide last night, her manager confirmed the news with an official statement.

Her rep explained that due to feeling "overwhelmed" by a scandalous lawsuit and the media scrutiny, Fantasia overdosed on a combination of aspirin and a sleep aid. The statement also confirms that Fantasia had a relationship with Antwaun Cook, though she says that he told her he was "separated."

Here's the statement in its entirety:

Fantasia has always been an open book. Honesty, self-respect, and personal responsibility are values she wears proudly.

Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it. She believed him when he told her he and Mrs. Cook separated in the late summer of 2009. She believed Mr. Cook when he told her he lived elsewhere.

He even took her there. One of Mr. Cook’s most redeeming qualities was his complete devotion to his children. Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her.

Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about eleven months. The pressure of the constant media attention was hard on their relationship. Fantasia gave inconsistent interviews about the status of her relationship with Mr. Cook because sometimes they were on and sometimes they were off.

When they were on, they spent most of their time together when she was not traveling with work.
Fantasia read Mrs. Cook’s Complaint against Mr. Cook for the first time yesterday. She knows some of the allegations in Mrs. Cook's complaint are totally false. There are others she strongly doubts. There is plenty she does not know.

Fantasia is heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused.

Yesterday, she was totally 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 is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon. Fantasia is a fighter and a survivor. This is not the hardest thing Fantasia has endured.

Fantasia will be stronger, smarter, and better for it. Her work has always inspired her and served as a source of strength. Her new album, “Back To Me,” will be released on August 24th.

The lyrics to “I’m Here” say it best:
“I Believe I Have Inside Of Me
Everything That I Need To Live A Bountiful Life
With All The Love Inside Of Me
I’ll Stand As Tall As The Tallest Tree
And I’m Thankful For Each Day That I’m Given
Both The Easy And The Hard Ones I’m Livin’
But Most Of All
Yes, I’m Thankful For Lovin’ Who I Really Am”

Fantasia sends her praise to God and her eternal gratitude to her fans, friends, and family.

God is good.

We're glad to hear that she is going to be alright. Stand tall girl. No matter what you did or didn't do, it isn't worth hurting yourself. Everyone makes mistakes. You got a lot of fight in you! Let's see it!

In the meantime, we send Fantasia our best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Well, Mario, you did it again: you talked shit on a celebrity then say "so sad" when something happens to that same celeb. At least Fantasia didn't end up like Brittany Murphy or Casey Johnson. I can't picture you giving genuine well wishes or rooting for someone when they're down. I can't wait for Lilo to clean up her act and win an Oscar. I'm positive that Mario can't wait for Lilo to OD or kill herself so he can write "Sad.Sad."
    I hope Fantasia gets better soon.

  2. 2

    She probably did it for fear of the scathing soul ripping she'd get from the likes of you Mr. Mario Hilton! You're ever so kind in your accepting of a person's mistakes and needing to move forward. Which is good! And should be extended to Everyone. So, does this mean if Sienna Miller, and LeAnn Rimes attempt suicide and quote a song in their explanation while recovering from the attempt that you'll turn the other cheek and applaud and 'forgive' (as if that was yours to do in the first place) them too? pfft! I read your garbage coz it's fun, but I don't like the ones where you judge people's soul's based on their mistakes. It IS possible to be funny and call them out, without making them out to be scourge of the earth. That should be reserved for people like Mugabe, BTK Killer and the like! People who actually cause pain seemingly impossible to recover from.

    The whole situation is very unfortunate and I wish her the best… but I can't help but twitch at that mention of her album coming out this month.

  4. 4

    "Fantasia has always been an open book", yeah, somethings open.

  5. 5

    She knew that he was married. Its women like her that I hate. They have an affair with a married man, get caught then cry that they didn't know!! And then she tries to commit suicide? You have a child Fantasia! How f'ing selfish are you?? Your child doesn't mean more to you than the drama surrounding this scandal? Maybe you shouldn't have had an affair with him to begin with. Find your own man! Fantasia…you're nothing but an illiterate, classless woman! HOMEWRECKER!! I have no sympathy for people like this. You made your bed, now lay in it!

  6. 6

    Oh fucking please. She's a drama queen to the extreme, she'll "almost" kill herself just to take people's minds off her being a homewrecker. I think she knew she wasn't going to die so she just took enough to really fuck her up so that way people would feel pity for her. If she really intneded on dying then yes, I would understand and feel a little empathy, but I don't think that was her intention.

  7. 7

    I think I counted 12 "Fantasia's" in her statement..

  8. 8

    interesting timing… that she has an album out on Aug. 24th…..

  9. 9

    so wait, you give negative comments about tiger cuz he cheated while he was married but she dated a married man, which makes her a homewrecker and thats okay…but you slam leann rhimes for the same thing…if anthing your a hypocrite and woefully inconsistant. did tiger not give you time, did leanne not give you tix to her show…talk about bias blogging…isnt there a 16 yr old boy you should be fawning over…

  10. 10

    Oh, Please. She knew that man was married. I have no sympathy for her. Get your esteem together, Girl!

  11. 11

    Maybe she should try again. She can claim "I didn't know" till the cows come home. She can say she "thought he loved her" and keep doing the deed with a married guy. She is stupid, she is foolish and she is overrated as talent. Next time Fantasia, take lots more pills because NO ONE feels sorry for you.

  12. 12

    I like Fantasia and wish her well. Who knows what that guy told her or what their situation was. I won't judge it. And as far as people commenting "homewrecker"… HE is the one who was married with a wife - not her. If anyone is to "blame" it is him.

    Re: Brookesmama20 – It takes two to tango. The man is in the wrong, he is the one playing with both girls hearts. Sadly marriages end but it is the person in the relationship that needs to be able to control their actions not others that surround them. There are tons of pretty girls out there and if your man can't control grabbing them it is time to let go of him.

    Both women are being played, she isn't right to be fooling around with him but sometimes love/infatuation can make you blind to something you normally would think is unethical. She is in a terrible situation but it is the guy who took the vows at his wedding, he has to be the one to say no.

    It is easier to blame the other women for taking your man then it is to think he wasn't happy in the relationship.

  14. 14

    Poor thing. She didn't know the truth. But it wasn't her fault. Its HIS fault. Did her dad cheat on her mom or something? I know its disgusting. But was she so disgusted in her self that she wanted to die? Damn, she must feel like she disappointed the world about now, but there's a child involved. Chin up girl. Feel better.

  15. 15

    Re: Brookesmama20 – I totally agree. Affair… Suicide… Album drop. PULEEZE.

  16. 16

    Listen to all of you, nobody should feel sorry for Fantasia. I don't get the kind of women that get a rush out of dating a married man. She knew the whole time and now karma is a bitch. Fantasia is just a spoiled, self-centered, immature woman with very low self esteem. Mrs. Cook never "almost killed herself" when she found out about the affair—-where's the applause for her? I hope Fantasia feels stupid, because she is. Who is feeling sorry for her daughter?

  17. 17

    @ Chicken Love—–hahahaha my thoughts exactly

  18. 18

    Let's see, another hypocrite Christian. Knocked up as a teenager, and illiterate. Then dating a married man, and still holding that cross tight in her hand. Karma's a bitch.

  19. 19

    Anyone selfish enough to try and KILL themselves and purposely leave behind a YOUNG child is selfish enough to have an affair with a married man.

  20. 20

    You knew the man was married. Ofcourse he's going to lie to you and tell you what you want to hear to continue being with you dummy. And wait a second, she is willing to kill herself over a man when she has a daughter? Some mother.

  21. 21

    OH GOD! you're so Retarded 5 hours late than all other celeb blogs !! GO GET A LIFE

  22. 22

    I find it hard to sympathize. Maybe she wasn't ready for the attention she'd get for being the homewrecker and decided to check out early but its sounds odd that all of this is happening as she's coming out with a new album. Also both of my parents cheated on each other when I was growing up so its hard for me to feel sorry for homewreckers or anyone who cheats when karma slaps them in the face. But I hope she does get better.

  23. 23

    She was a trainwreck before American Idol. I just feel bad for her kid.

  24. 24

    Oh boo-hoo, another celebrity having to deal with real life. Perhaps the od thing will help sell her next cd. I believe if somebody truly wanted to kill themselves, they'd succeed, or if their attempt was truly a cry for help, they'd get the help they need. Everyone deals with sh*t in their lives, not all of them make headlines when they either triumph over their problems, or succumb. Grow the fu*k up Fantasia, don't go with maried men, and appreciate the gifts you have been given. Millions of people would love to have what you have….you just f'ing waste it.

  25. 25

    dont sleep with married men. thats what causes drama.
    you coulda waited for the divorce and kept it in your pants

    andd i think shes using this as pity for her album release.

    i agree with what perez said though.

  26. 26

    Doesn't she have a young daughter? What the hell was she thinking? So a man and all this BS is more important?

  27. 27

    Oh no! I hope she can get the proper help for her stress! What a mess! =[

  28. 28

    NORTH CAROLINA IS THE WRONG STATE TO BE A MISTRESS. A married WIFE won millions in a lawsuit against the mistress that she claimed ruined her marriage. Fantasia could lose in a lawsuit there. Fantasia got paid to sing gospel songs in churches. This incident will hurt her fan base there. Fantasia should NOT have dated a married man. She is in hot water.

  29. 29

    I send well wishes to Fantasia, and hopes she gets better. And people leave her alone, she's human like the rest of us.

    No need to X yourself off; deal with the consequence that comes along with your actions. Hopefully, her soon to be release album will bring in the doe. Hahaha doubt it……..

    Re: Brookesmama20

    BLAME THE HUSBAND, NOT THE MISTRESS! Fantasia did not marry Mrs. Cook!

  33. 33

    Re: blsdjan

    Sue your husband, not the mistress! That law is so stupid!

  34. 34

    Hahaha! that was fun NEE ! Aspirin and a sleeping aid!!! "He was separated when i met him". Fantasia ….funny name for a woman whose ugly inside and out.

  35. 35

    Fantasia was living in a fantasy world for awhile and believing in magic. She deserves someone that can participate in a healthy relationship. First of all she better get some counselling and figure out what constitutes a healthy relationship. Cuz it is obvious she doesn't know….sadly.

  36. 36

    Re: Brookesmama20 – Ok for you….and im not defending her, but u have some BITCH ASS MEN out here that will tell a female anything, and they will believe it. They can tell u they are not dating or married or whatever the case may be but in reality all this shit falls down on the female. His ass should be the one to blame. NOW WHO ARE U TOO CALL SOME ONE ILLITERATE!!! Now its women like YOU who i cant stand because your so FUCKING quick to blame the female, when its the PUNK ASS TRIFLING MEN!!…NOW WRITE ABOUT THAT!

  37. 37
