Fantasia Released from Hospital
Fantasia Barrino has been released from the hospital following a medication overdose on Monday (Aug. 9), according to People. The former "American Idol" winner left her Charlotte, N.C. hospital late Wednesday (Aug. 11).
"She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans," Fantasia's manager Brian Dickens told People. "She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration."
Barrino was hospitalized after being named in a divorce lawsuit that accused the singer of having an affair with a married man. A rep for Barrino issued a statement Tuesday (Aug. 10) which stated that Barrino took an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid on Monday night after feeling "totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention."
