NEW YORK – Fantasia is in stable condition in a North Carolina hospital after taking an overdose of “aspirin and a sleep aid,” according to the manager for the former “American Idol” champ.

 

The overdose came days after the singer was named in court documents by Paula Cook, who accused Fantasia of having an affair with her husband, Antwaun Cook.

 

Brian Dickens, Fantasia’s manager, said in a statement last Tuesday that winner was “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,” he said. His statement did not specify where she was taken and he did not immediately return a call seeking comment
