“Fantasia has spoken to Antwaun since she left the hospital but nobody knows if they will get back together again,” the source said.

“Their relationship has been really off and on in recent times so we will just have to wait and see how things will pan out.

“Fantasia has plenty of people looking after her right now, and the most important thing is that she does not have too much pressure or stress.”

Although her management team is trying to treat the Idol winner sensitively right now, they are hoping that she will be able to finish the second season of her VH1 reality show Fantasia For Real and also promote her new album Back To Me which is due to be released on August 24.
