“I didn’t have any fight left in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out,” the 26 year old singer is quoted as saying. “At that moment, I just wanted out. I wanted it to be over with- all of it, all of that shit.”
In the interview, Fantasia is said to go into great detail at that fateful night, saying: “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 be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of sleeping pills.”
Fantasia said she tried to kill herself because she “was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family- my father, dealing with men and their shit- I was tired- my head was hurting me. I was over it.
Fantasia then went into detail about her relationship with Antwaun Cook- the man whose wife accused Fantasia of having a hand in their marital break-up. “When I met him, he was separated and wasn’t living at home. He didn’t want to be back with his wife- that is what I was told.
Fantasia’s “Back to Me” album will be released tomorrow. Her VH-1 special will air later on that night.
