More details have come out regarding Fantasia’s scary overdose earlier this week. According to the 911 call obtained by TMZ, the singer was slipping in and out of consciousness and was bleeding as her manager Brian Dickens called the police.
It hasn’t been confirmed Dickens was the one to place the 911 call, but it’s likely since it was a male’s voice on the call, and he signed the police report. The caller told the dispatcher, "An individual took a bottle of Asprin and she is slowly losing consciousness."
The caller went on to say, "I'm outside, but somebody is with her inside." He also said she was bleeding, and did not have a weapon and was not violent. He added, "She's in the shower. Her family tried to put her in the shower to try to keep her awake until the paramedics get there.”
The dispatcher then instructs, "Take her out of the shower and turn the water off."
As of now, Fantasia is “doing fine,” according to her father Joseph Barrino. Her manager added, "Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon. Fantasia is a fighter and a survivor. This is not the hardest thing Fantasia has endured. Fantasia will be stronger, smarter, and better for it. Her work has always inspired her and served as a source of strength."
He did comment on her relationship with Antwaun Cook, who is married, and who’s wife is filing for divorce over an alleged sex tape between her husband and Fantasia.
?"Fantasia and Mr. Cook dated on and off for about eleven months," admitted Dickens in a statement. "Fantasia believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it... Fantasia fell in love with Mr. Cook and believed that he loved her."
This is such a sad story! We hope it wasn’t really suicide—she doesn’t seem like the type to throw everything away for a man. But if so, Fantasia must be in a really dark place right now.
Of course there’s the speculation that all of this is for publicity of her new album, which is due out in a couple of weeks. As Hollyscoop previously reported, Dickens made a point to mention her album release was right around the corner. Do you think this could all be a publicity stunt? Crazier things have happened!
