American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino has been hospitalized after suffering an overdose.
According to local North Carolina news station Newschannel 36, the season three Idol winner was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville at 8:55 p.m. Monday night for a “medication overdose.”
According to their report, Barrino’s condition was not life threatening. The station’s sources did not know whether the overdose was intentional or what type of medication was involved. Kevin McCarthy, a spokesperson for the hospital, told RadarOnline.com that “there is nobody by that name” in their directory and would neither confirm nor deny that the Idol star was being treated there.
Reports that Barrino had been having an affair with a married man surfaced on Wednesday after a complaint was filed by Paula Cook accusing the American Idol winner of sleeping with her husband and recording their illicit sexual activity.
RadarOnline.com discovered photos of Barrino with Cook’s husband eight months ago in Barbados.
