Fantasia Barrino was “heartbroken” and “overwhelmed” by Paula Cook‘s accusations that the former American Idol winner had an affair with her husband Antwaun Cook, before her hospitalization on Monday night.
Fantasia’s manager Brian Dickens says: “Fantasia read Mrs. Cook’s complaint against Mr. Cook for the first time yesterday,” reports ET Online.
“She knows some of the allegations in Mrs. Cook’s complaint are totally false. There are others she strongly doubts. There is plenty she does not know.
“Fantasia is heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused. Yesterday, she was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention.”
On Monday evening, the 26-year-old singer was hospitalized in North Carolina after taking an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid.
Dickens says Fantasia is in a stable condition and will be released soon. “Her injuries are not life threatening. She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time,” he says.
Dickens says that Fantasia and Antwaun “dated on and off for about eleven months,” adding the singer “believed Mr. Cook when he told her he was not happy in his marriage and his heart was not in it. She believed him when he told her he and Mrs. Cook separated in the late summer of 2009.”
