RALEIGH, N.C. – Police say they believed they were responding to a suicide attempt after ‘American Idol‘ winner Fantasia overdosed on a bottle of asprin at her Charlotte, N.C., home.
A police report released Wednesday says Charlotte-Mecklenburg officers believed Fantasia may have suffered internal injuries Monday night from an overdose. The report didn’t indicate why they thought that.
On a recording released by police of the 911 call, a man tells a dispatcher the victim took the aspirin.
The singer’s manager, Brian Dickens, said Wednesday the overdose was not a suicide attempt but didn’t elaborate. Dickens said Fantasia was still hospitalized Wednesday but was stable.
The overdose came days after a woman accused Fantasia in court documents of having an affair with her husband.
