The ex-American Idol winner, as previously reported on, overdosed on aspirin and sleep medication in her native North Carolina Monday because she was "overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention" rising from a relationship she was in with Antwaun Cook, a married man (who her rep said she believed was actually separated).

The singer's new album, Back To Me, hits stores August 24.
