The attempt follows news of the 26-year-old being named in a divorce petition, because of an 11-month relationship with a married man. She used sleeping aids and aspirin. Paula Cook said that Fantasia’s relationship with her husband, Antwaun, ended their marriage. She claimed to have intimate video footage of the two together. Fantasia denied parts of Cook’s allegations, and said she was not responsible for ending the marriage.

Photos emerged of Fantasia with Cook. Fantasia’s “heart was broken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused,” Brian Dickens- spokesman. The police is treating the incident as an attempted suicide.

She was found collapsed in her closet, at home, in North Carolina.

“She was overwhelmed with the lawsuit and the media attention. Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon,” her spokes-person assured.

Fantasia was American Idol’s third season winner.

Fantasia was a single mother when fame stormed her on American Idol. She has a daughter, Zion.

TMZ reported that she’s in stable condition.
