Singer Fantasia Barrino overdosed on medications after feeling "heartbroken" and "overwhelmed" by reports accusing her of having an affair with a married man, according to her representative. The former "American Idol" star is in a stable condition after checking into a hospital in North Carolina on Monday, August 9 and receiving treatment for a "medication overdose".

Her publicist explains that Barrino was left devastated after hitting the headlines when she was named in divorce proceedings between North Carolina couple Antwuan Cook and his estranged wife Paula, who alleged the star had an affair with Cook after meeting him in August 2009.

A statement issued by Barrino's rep on Tuesday, August 10 reads: "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."

Barrino's rep also confirms that the R&B singer was romantically involved with Cook, but that she believed he was separated from his wife during their relationship. The statement continues: "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 later summer of 2009... Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her. Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about 11 months."

To Fantasia, don't let your mistake keep causing you pain. People are so judgemental.If God forgives you don't worry about the rest some of those same folks have sinned and come short of God's glory. If you ask for for forgiveness it will be granted. Man have a hard time forgiving and letting stuff go but God is not like that., and I thank him for that.He loves us and know that we will make mistakes. Keep your head up! You're to Blessed to be stressed.

Well if "what eva" is point at me, I can say this i've never shared no one else man because i was raised by a so call playa and he always said how he wanted me to be able to spot one cause they come in all shapes and color and i've also had some of the most devious cutthroat a*s female friends that thought they were my friend but they were people i like to study. Like yourself you say people or focusing on the negative with Fantasia, well are you saying that we are suppose to believe that it took her 2 years to realize that he was marry when she said that she knew he was marry from the get go , and if we are to be that stupid, we are suppose to think that crap she call and told his wife was because she was say......sorry? But listening to you saying that people talking maybe sharing a man too. Well in my case a man aaaaaaaint never got to share because i'm like a light switch when a man loves me and want to be with me cool, lights on when he want to be with someone else i don't give a D*mn he can be with someone else cause it's to much a*s out here , lights off, now i've found that women that mess with other women men are either jealous of what that women got or most of all just cant find a man on there own, so they ignore the sign of that man being marry and convince themselves that he is not, so they don't feel guilty about what they are doing or my favorite if i play like i'm ignorant to the fact of this guy being marry when the sh*t hits the fan i can say "i didn't know" he did tell me that he was marry" or oh " i was blinded by him i was such a fool. Then you said she took that lady man well someone need to tell his a*s to stop suing her a*s because she "Took" him and he's suppose to be with her. And also since you said "she could have found her own but she took that one" i can tell that you speak from experience. enough said on that. Now i think that that sorry a*s man should get exactly what he deserve because he had an obligation to his family and his wife and he broke all bonds, but when Fantasia sit up and said that she has been with dude 2 years and he said that yes he's was married but having problem in the marriage , that meant that he was still MARRIED, next, did she think scre*ing him for 2 years would help his marriage,and last but not least did she not know that when the sh*t hit the fan that he was going to side with the wife, they always do cause they know there wife is going to take them through the ringer because in the end all the other woman is ... is a piece a*s to enjoy on the outside while she makes him feel good to take all his enjoyment home to his wife and family not her a*s. So if it will make you feel better "what eva" i'll leave her alone because it sound like maybe Fantasia and yourself might be in that other class of female and male my dad mention. He always said there are woman out here that know that they don't even want a man but when they find out that he is married he becomes a challenge because it make her feel powerful to think that she is taking another woman's man especial if he has a good job or a nice car, she wants so bad what that woman got, and the man can be ugly as hell, it's just the thrill destroying others lives, and usual when they succeed they dump that person and move on to the next victim because he's now too needed, and they never really wanted them in the first place . That why he also said that he wore a fake wedding ring and went out to the club and flashed his money so they would attack and then let them know that he was marry, so the female that said that was ok he knew he had a Sh*tless woman, then his three F's program had began he had FOUND her, now he had to take her to get something to eat after the club(FEED her) now take her back to his place or hers to get to know her better(F**K her). So back off "what eva", Don't you know that an opinion is like an a*shole, everybody got one. So Chill.

Why don't you guys just shut the hell up. Whether Fantasia knowingly or unknowingly did anything wrong, it is not your place to put her on the judgement seat and cast stones. As a result of the relationship, she is now suffering. She doesn't need you adding to her pain. God has His own way of bringing back to Him. You all need to allow Him to be God and just shut your mouths. At this point, Fantasia is in need of support and compassion from people. She does not need you all making her feel worse than she already feels. Sometimes people make mistakes and have to learn the hard way. Fantasia is only human!!!!

Do bad things and it will bite you in the a**. He was wrong to cheat. She was horribly wrong to sleep with a man that she knew was married. He was married, unhappy in his marriage means he is STILL married. Seperated from his wife, means she is his WIFE and he is still MARRIED. Making a sex tape, with a man who is married to someone else, disgusting. Taunting his wife, key word here is WIFE, that he doesn't want her and he wants you, that was just plain evil. Fantasia was just dead wrong. She should have waited till the divorce (if he was really going to do it not because he got caught). DIVORCE means no longer married! Both she and he deserve what ever they get. Life is a bit*h especially if you behave like one.

This is bull !Fantasia grew up in the hood and she know that when a man says he is unhappy in his marry,and is still married translation: You are a piece of a*s, that i know i wont get unless i make a fool out of you and your a*s is dumb as hell to fall for it. If they had Kids, did he tell her that he was staying in the marry for the Kids? Did he tell her how horrible his Wife is and she believe that too. Now that they are suing her silly a*s can you see that you've been played? Then you had the never to make those f*nky comments to his Wife, what is it did he have gold down there? Obviously he did because Fantasia couldn't get here own man while she's trying to talk crap to his wife she is getting that woman's leftover. Now to make herself look even weaker she tries to take the coward's way out,where are those b*lls she had when she was talking too the wife? i guess they shrunk big time. This was a way to get sympathy, well boo-hoo that sh*t ain't working on people with a grain of sense in there head. And last but not least how she talk about God so much all the time especially in your book, well you have prove that you are another one that always using God's name to benefit you , but his words that's all it is to you, W-O-R-D-S! And the Award for "Desperate for someone else man cause i am not qualified to get my own goes to.... Fantasia Barrino, or is that Barcuda?
