Hospitalized last week for a suicide attempt, Fantasia is forging ahead with previously planned promotional appearances for her new album, Back to Me, her label J Records confirmed in a statement to Us Weekly.
“I can’t thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time,” the star said in Monday’s statement. “It has given me the motivation to get back to work . . . I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Paula Cook, the estranged wife of Tasia’s boyfriend Antwaun Cook, was photographed on Sunday outside of her church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her lawyer Tamela Wallace tells People magazine that the 36-year-old school teacher is ‘humiliated’ by her husband’s affair with Teeny’s cheese plates debtor.
In a statement to TMZ, Fantasia’s rep says that a combination of aspirin and a sleep aid were to blame Fantasia Barrino’s overdose last night. According to reports Barrino was rush to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville around 8:55 PM on Monday night to be treated for a medical overdose.
“Yesterday, she was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention.”
The statement continues, “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. Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon.”
DO YOU THINK THIS WAS A CRY FOR HELP?
The power of Tasia Mae’s pressed panini is getting her into a lot of trouble these days.
In a statement released today by her manager Brian Dickens, the hood’s spelling bee champ says she is “not responsible” for breaking up a marriage — despite allegations from a North Carolina woman named Paula Cook who claims Fanny made sex tapes with her husband.
“Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges. Fantasia’s faith in God, herself and family remain as strong as ever.”
That statement should have included an alter call and a building fund envelope. Let the church say amen!
Speak of the devil.
While he screamed into a microphone with the vociferation of a million protesting banshees, Fantasia’s spanx offered the front row cookies and apple juice as she performed for the audience at Chicago’s N’DIGO Foundation Gala 2010: A Sunday Soul concert earlier this week. Ain’t no emotion like raw emotion.
Really, I would have nothing but good things to say about Fannie Mae’s appearance at WrestleMania XXVI if her sporadically placed Lil’ Mo prison style tattoos were concealed. Since they aren’t, it is a must that I fulfill my contractual agreement with Teeny and say that she looks like she is singing at the Trap House Bible Temple of Glory during offering time. Who needs a tithe envelope?
