Says Fantasia Overdose No Accident, ‘I Wanted Out’



Two weeks after being hospitalized for overdosing on aspirin and a sleep aid, singer Fantasia Barrino says it was no accident. She wanted to die. People is reporting:

“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out,” the American Idol winner, 26, tells VH1 in a new Behind the Music interview, airing 9 p.m. ET/PT Tuesday, the same day her new album, Back to Me, is released. “At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that [expletive].”

Fantasia continues: Antwaun Cook, became to much for her.

“I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family – my father, dealing with men and their [expletive] – I was tired. My head was hurting me. I was over it.

When I met him, he was separated … wasn’t living in his home. He didn’t want to be back with his wife – that is what I was told. I remember waking up in the hospital [and thinking], ‘It didn’t work, I’m still here in this hellhole. Still here with all this drama going on.’

My nurse Melanie was a blessing into my life because she didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear. She told me what I needed to hear. And she looked at me and said, ‘You gotta get up, and you’ve gotta get out of here, ’cause you haven’t fulfilled your destiny.’

I realized how people end up in the grave. Because that one moment [snaps her fingers] of just breaking or feeling like I can’t, I can’t go on, it’s too heavy. That was somewhere I don’t ever want to go again.”

I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”


  1. What a simple minded B***H!!! I knew exactly what I was doing because I wanted out, WHERE THEY DO THAT AT! No man is worth your life and no shame or pain should make you want to end your life, especially if you have something or someone to live for and that’s her daughter.

    Fantasia needs to go somewhere and hide and get her SH** together because this type of thinking and behavior is not normal. I don’t judge but I’ma just say this, if you act like an a** then you are an a**, if you play with dogs, then most likely you will catch fleas, and last but not least, if you see or want death then death becomes you. I just hope and pray that 6 months to a year from now, we don’t hear about her overdosing on some pills or she has been found dead in her home. Remember people your tongue is a weapon, it can speak good in your life just as well as death!

  2. I don’t know why it took white folks news so long to air this story? “But I tell you what I am so damn tired of hearing about this kinda shit; “because first of all the wives need to stop blaming the women who sleep with their husbands and blame it on their husbands. And Fantasia is a troubled soul and although she has so much madness in her life, she has to let it all go for her child and stand up and be that strong beautiful black woman that’s inside. But to all of the starlets Fantasia ,Alicia Keys and Monica; ” Why in the hell are y’all taking on all of this unnecessary baggage; “when you don’t have too. Their actions must have something to do with their family tree, and its time for them to break the cycle.

  3. Fantasia is so damn dumb…not once did she mention her own daughter. She wasn’t even willng to live for her but willing to die for someone else’s husband…dumb ass.

  4. Wow Gloria, why are you making this a race thing? I myself am a white woman and I would blame it on the husband AND the other woman.

    I hope she gets better – especially for the sake of her daughter.
