Fantasia Barrino hospitalized

Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized last night in Charlotte, N.C. for what several media outlets are reporting as a medication overdose.

The singer and onetime "American Idol" was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville on the same day that news broke regarding a lawsuit that accuses Barrino of breaking up a couple's marriage. A North Carolina woman filed court documents last week that claim her husband, Antwaun Cook, and Barrino engaged in an illicit affair and recorded sex tapes; Barrino's reps have denied that she caused the marriage to dissolve.

Barrino's condition is reportedly not life-threatening.

Lawsuit followed by overdose: too much of a coinky-dink for me.

She sings good, she's making money, she's becoming famous. Of course, people are going to sue her.

Anyone who attempts suicide by taking aspirin can't be all that serious about it.

This is obviously just for publicity purposes.

I think she needs a shrink. Way too much drama in that woman's life.

Fantasia is a "TRICK" from the hood. The only difference about her and prostitutes is that she sang beautifully. Aint nobody hard on her she should know how to handle difficult situations, she is from the hood anyway. Besides, what is so different about her story and millions of others? I tell you what it is, she was given a chance..... Down in MS, we have alot of Christians here that can sing really well but they just haven't had the break, such as Angela White Carter and I know that she won't go across country being a disgrace to human society......
