Fantasia Barrino was rushed to a North Carolina hospital last night where she was treated for a “medication overdose,” this according to WCNC.com.

According to the report, Barrino was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville around 8:55 PM … the report says her condition was not life-threatening.

According to the report, it’s unclear whether the OD was intentional or accidental.

As we previously reported — Barrino was recently accused of making a sex tape with a married man and destroying his marriage.

Barrino has claimed she is “not responsible” for the deterioration of the marriage.

    These judgmental white people like Nancy Grace and CNN tryna kill this girl! They are acting like cheating is uncommon today. Yea she’s wrong but they were basically saying her career is over. Leave it to them to bury the Black artists. Fanny, Alicia Keys and many others aint getting the heat u are but you will get through it. TURN TO THE LORD. They are doing the same thing to Chris Brown saying he career was over but look at his progress. Stay strong

  13. Yellow Gorilah August 10, 2010

  14. True Blue August 10, 2010

    I’ll bet it was intentional, what with the recent scandal surrounding her and all. I hope she’s alright :(.

  19. BoydashianLive August 10, 2010

    Has anyone even thought to say: ” I wonder did COOK tell Fantasia he was married?” Im sure he’s like any other man, cheating on his wife and lying to the mistress in most cases. I have never saw soo much attention and shade be thrown at a artist. The media dogged her for her educational background, then said she wasn’t living up to idol standards with red hair, now she’s a homewrecker. I think there is a light skin vs. dark skin problem with America. ALICIA KEYS dated a married man for years KNOWINGLY and she hasnt been degraded, just praised. PFFT… The main thing thats sad about this story is, the media prevails for continuing to turn BLACKS against BLACKS. Get well Fantasia, Im praying for you!

  20. Veebz August 10, 2010

    Damn Tasia, I guess all this drama is just too much for her. But shes got a Lil girl too think about that is wall more impotant than all of this

  21. DamnBitchUbeenafan August 10, 2010

    OHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! NOT MY FANNY!!!!!!!!!

  22. Tiff August 10, 2010

    OMG!
    My prayers go out to her and her family
    So sad! 🙁

  23. JD August 10, 2010

    Get better Tasia!!!

  24. A August 10, 2010

    omg I HOPE Fantasia gets well soon. I hope it wasnt intentional either 🙁

  28. t August 10, 2010

    girl you need to get oyrself together before you lose everything…yo need to get on your knees and repent for all the wqrong you have done and start over this is way to much

  29. Ciara’s Left Bollock August 10, 2010

    Why do chicks with children insist on overdosing when s*** gets hard, how thoughtless?! Sorry but she gets no sympathy from me. I’m gonna need for the silly b**** to take a seat when she gets out of hospital. GIRL BYE!!

  30. Stacey August 10, 2010

    Hey, Cookies Yum:

    I have never helped a man cheat on his wife. I did, however, get involved with a man who lied and I found out that he was married. I dropped him like a hot potato, but every situation is different. You are calling out the splinter in Fantasia’s eye when you probably have a whole plank sticking out of yours. Of course, its easy to talk sh1t and be judgmental when you are hiding behind the safety of your computer screen.

  31. Diane August 10, 2010

    Get well, my sweets. You’ve had a challenging life and the public better give you the same benefit they give other celebs who overdose, such as Owens, Olsen, Lohan, Spears, etc. And they better give you the same respect they give Angelina for dating a married man. My prayers are with you.

    As always, I have to give you my signature sign-off, “Keep your damn shoes on.” With luv.

    ——————————-
    B**** you should go overdose just for that dumbass comment.

    Godbless her. People really don’t know what is going on and they don’t even know if it was intentional and even if it was I hope everything is alright with her. And whatever it is she can make it through it 😀 I won’t judge people go through stuff.

  33. cookies yummm August 10, 2010

    get better love u girl

  39. Ciara’s Left Bollock August 10, 2010

    @Lady…H** take a seat next to Fannie’s stupid attention seeking ass. If it was unintentional then she better be careful next time before she leaves her child motherless.

  40. T-sParkz August 10, 2010

    Fantasia I love you but I think you should just chill out until your album comes out and then get back to working. Take the time to teach ur daughter not 2 get involved with this like this. I’m prayin 4 u.

  41. chelsie August 10, 2010

    ciara’s left foot, this was probably a desperate cry for help and she wasn’t thinking rationally. People who commit and attept suicides rarely do.

  42. Lady August 10, 2010

    Smh at the people telling her to have a seat. I don’t like the fact she supposedly wrecked a family but it takes two…..justsaying. And its so ignorant to wish her anything but to get her life together cuz while she should have not been messing with a married man I’m not gonna sit here and say something disrespectful about her having an overdose….

  43. MJfan August 10, 2010

    people are so funny condemning adultery, like artists only do that one thing, if it fact it’s true. and for the record, to say someone should repent for adultery, well i guess when people date a man or woman that is separated from the spouse, when their spouse didn’t have an affair, that is adultery as well in the sight of God. So, you can be in a relationship with someone and it’s still a sin. Or what about when people have pre-marital s**, hmm that is a sin. What about when people promote s**, violence, misgony, anything that is negative, those are sins, they may not do it, but fans who are niave and stupid, who can’t separate art from reality. are the artists not sinning,because they are causing their fellow man to stumble spiritually? when people come on blogs start quoting bible verses , and begin condemning others please know that there are many ways a person can condemn everything you find acceptable as well.

  44. monique August 10, 2010

    so were supposed to sympathize w/ her…..smh i hope she gets better but this aint going away soon so she needs to get prepared

  45. k August 10, 2010

    So sad, I’m praying for her.

  46. futurestarDELUX August 10, 2010

    I HAVN’T EVER LISTENED TO ANY OF HER MUSIC BUT I HOPE SHE’S OK, SHE MUST HAVE FELT SO ALONE TO HAVE DONE SOMETHING LIKE THAT 🙁

  47. Elle August 10, 2010

    I love her voice; it’s so unique and she’s a fearless vocalist. I hope she’s okay. 🙁

  48. DEBRA August 10, 2010

    My prayers are with her. She is not alone. Heartbreak can be devistration. I pray that she will touch the hem of Christ and have renew strength. Angels in heaven ach for her pain.

  49. WHITEJESUS August 10, 2010

    i dont know about the album but the s** tape might have something to do with it.

  50. stan August 10, 2010

    damn, tasia……. :(.

  51. PLAIN AND SIMPLE August 10, 2010

    hope she is not using this situation like someone else we all know did.

  52. Bluekid August 10, 2010

    @ MJfan, You are the most confused individual on TGJ!

    Fantasia needs to get her act together, making s** tapes, being with a married man with children, damn! Where is this woman’s morels!

    I don’t know the whole story behind her overdose, but if it is behind this man than she is a fool. Know man is worth taking your life over plus she has another life to take care of out side her own, her child.

    I’m not her fan, but to one human to another gurl get your act together. God only help them that help themselves, and you are not helping your self being arrogant talking down on that mans wife talking zhit to her on the phone, be glad the bish is not suing you for breaking up her Marriage, because the state she live in she can just do that.

    Fantasia, has always been like a disparate woman to me every since she kiss Jamie Fox at the awards show. I read it was not life threatening so get your a** together and stop with the stupid zhit. I find it hard to feel sorry for a person who is running around acting crazy behind some broke, broke, negro.

  53. PLAIN AND SIMPLE August 10, 2010

    @Bluekid

    Preach!! total agree 100% this is how an adult would say it. You go Bluekid

    I’m glad you see it too, gurl that is just crazy!

  55. #Fact August 10, 2010

    I’m sorry, but that home-wrecker will not get any sympathy points from me. I bet this is just another way for her label to save her tarnished image, as if it has gone beyond the point of no repair. Her current single is a flop and her album will soon follow suit.

  56. Jazybelle August 11, 2010

    …but at the same time that cheating ass negro need to be held accountable for his acts ,fantasia doesnt have to get sued because she slept with somebody else`s man thats some pure fuckery last time I checked she was nt the one that was married .I dont condone *homewrecking* by any means but she did not R*** that man well Im sure its not the first time he cheats on his wife …

  57. Jazybelle August 11, 2010

    Women need to get it togheter and stop blaming the other women only and check their shady husbands/baby daddy/boyfriend…If you dont like to be cheated on just bounce,if you stay then dont complain .

  58. True Blue August 11, 2010

    You can SUE someone for allegedly breaking up your marriage? Is that for real? And what happens to the spouse that cheated on you?

  59. Caitlin August 11, 2010

    I hope to God that she recovers well!

  60. K.Row Kid August 11, 2010

    Poor Fantasia!

    My prayers are with her.

  61. Toastee August 11, 2010

    I just can’t feel sorry for her !! If it was intentional, I don’t know what to say !! This is soooo damn selfish, and disrespectful for life !! Did she think about her daughter? Her family? Her fans? I mean common’ now!! Some people are REALLY suffering at this very moment, people with REAL PROBLEMS other than sextapes, breakups etc etc etc !!

  62. Xena August 11, 2010

    I’m sorry Fantasia thought taking her life would be better than living up to the fact ,that she is messin with a married man , she knew better yet didn’t care who she hurt ,what did she think the world would open it’s arms like they did for Brad and Angelina, Hell no!
    Fantasia didn’t mind flaunting her relationship for all the world to see, it humiliating enough for your man or woman to cheat on you , but to have a public figure must really hurt , but I side with the wife on this take fantasia’s ass for everything girl .

    and as for your boyfriend fanny I bet he didn’t even show up at the hospitol for you that’s gotta hurt Fantasia stop seeking sympathy you’re not gonna get it at least not from me

    you made your bed with another woman’s man ,

  63. glamgyrl August 11, 2010

    It’s so sad that Fantasia is suffering emotionally so badly right now; I pray that she heals, both physically and psychologically, soon. Fantasia is a sweet, talented young woman who was misled by mr. cook. It’s sickening to see the media bash her so harshly, but of course, Fantasia doesn’t pass their ‘paperbag test. Fantasia needs a good psychologist and the support of her family, friends and fans now more than ever

  64. Xena August 11, 2010

    what she needs is her black ass kicked right alon with Mr. Cook mislead my ass
    he works at a dam t-mobile store it was all easy for his broke ass . if she could
    not tell he was only in it for the money ….dam girl look in the mirror she’s not the prettiest flower in the garden.. no diss just an observation I’m just sayin

  65. nickalus Randle August 11, 2010

    DEF PRAYING for my girl….LORD BE WITH HER, we do not know the pain/struggles of what she is going thru, give her strength Jesus-AMEN! LOVE U FANTASIA!!

  66. jonberry August 11, 2010

    Oh people please,

    Alot of ppl should repent for alot of things but with this woman in crisis now is really not the time for that!

    God speed in healing and overcoming whatever demon is on your back Fantasia!

  67. lele August 11, 2010

    i hope that fantasia gets well because she has a daughter to raise and she shouldnt get stressed out over things that bother her because she has alot of freinds family and fans that look up to i

    WITH ALL THE <3
    GE WELL FANTASIA

  68. Wanda August 11, 2010

    For all the people that is talking negative shut the f*** up Fantasia is no homewrecker the man lied to her he told her that his relationship with his wife was over so she didnt know and she didnt try to kill her self she was dehydrated and exhausted from all the negativity she has a lil girl she wouldnt put her daughter down like that because i know her personally and for the ones talking bout her album its not gon flop and Bitersweet was sucessful it jus wasnt a #1 hit so shut the f*** up if u dont know what your talkin bout s*** like this pisses me off when yall people start rumors jus to make her look bad but at the end of the day yall gon be broke while she making millions because she got a new album,new reality show,tour, (new movie color purple)and she is producing a new movie,gospel album so if u think this gon be the way to get rid of her think again

  69. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) August 11, 2010

    To be honest I never condone cheaters especially when the man happens to be a married-separated-with children kind of man (A. Keys I’ve got my eyes fix on you).

    Now, to the main point apparently Tasia new he was married with children, this is because court documents Mrs Paula Cook filed indicates that she once warned Tasia to stay away from her man however Tasia replied and I quote ” “He don’t want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you’ll know how to keep him. That’s why he is here with me.” Follow below link to read more about it.

    Obviously Tasia is defo following A Key’s guide to dating indeed. That said my main point here is, of all the cutest single guys in the world (including myself…eyes rolling). Why do someone particularly a celebrity (that are meant to be serving as a role model) has the need to go for a married and in the process gave the press a huge amenition to blow everything out of proportion?????????????

    the man should have told the the truth
