    "American Idol" Star Fantasia Barrino Hospitalized - She is being treated for a medication overdose

    The same day she denied being the reason for a marriage break up, former American Idol Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina and is being treated for a "medication overdose," local TV station WCNC reported. Turns out, she took too many aspirin and sleep aids. Which means she is going to have a pretty nasty headache later.

    Barrino, 26, was transported to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville around 8:55 PM, the same day she denied allegations she had broken up a marriage. A North Carolina woman claimed that Barrino had an affair with Antwaun Cook which caused his marriage to collapse. Barrino, through her lawyer, claimed the woman was using her name to sensationalize litigation.

    Barrino's condition is apparently not life threatening, thankfully. Manager, Brian Dickens made the following statement: "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."

    Do you think the overdose and the cheating allegations are related or not?
