On August 9th, Fantasia Barrino was taken to a local North Carolina hospital after suffering an overdose of medication. She was said to be mixing aspirin with a sleep medication.
Two weeks later, the singer admits that the medication overdose wasn’t by accident. She said, “I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that [expletive]. I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
I hope that she gets the help she needs already. There’s no reason to ever want to end it all.
