Fantasia’s Drug Overdose Was Suicide Attempt

Fantasia’s overdose was no accident at all, PopCrunch.com reveals.
The site says that Fantasia Barrino has confessed that the overdose of aspirin and sleep medication in her North Carolina home earlier this month was actually a suicide attempt.
“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that shit. I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills,” the former “American Idol” winner said in a VH1 Behind the Music special, which airs on Monday night.
Fantasia, who is a mother, says she was pushed over the edge by the harsh public scrutiny she received over her romance with married father Antwaun Cook.
“I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family – my father, dealing with men and their [expletive] – I was tired. My head was hurting me. I was over it. When I met him, he was separated … wasn’t living in his home. He didn’t want to be back with his wife – that is what I was told. I remember waking up in the hospital [and thinking], ‘It didn’t work, I’m still here in this hellhole. Still here with all this drama going on,” she said.
Fantasia and Cook met at the Charlotte T-Mobile Store where he worked in August 2009.
