American Idol star Fantasia Barrino was hospitalized after she attempted to commit suicide according to a North Carolina police report, and RadarOnline.com has the audio tape of the 911 call from the scene.
A male voice is heard saying: “an individual took a bottle of [inaudible] and she’s slowly losing consciousness.”
“Is she breathing,” the dispatcher asked. “Yes,” replied the unidentified caller.
“[She’s in] the shower. The family tried to put her in the shower to try to keep her awake.”
The dispatcher then told the man to tell the family to take Fantasia out of the shower.
According to a report filed with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, officers responded on Monday evening at 8:43 p.m. to a suicide attempt call at a home on Bevington Place, Charlotte.
Police sources and sources close to the investigation say Barrino was found in the closet of the Glynmoor Lakes neighborhood home and she was taken to Mercy South Hospital at Carolinas Medical Center in Pineville.
According to the police report, Barrino was hospitalized with “possible internal injuries” after “ingesting medication.” Brian Dickens, who is Barrino’s manager in Maryland, is the one who notified CMPD that something was wrong with her, the police report stated.
