the truth    

why is everyone attacking her?? look what it has done to her! that so called man she was with is the s***bag because he was married and decided to cheat. its not all Fantasias fault. he couldn't keep it in his pants because hes the one who decided to cheat. I'm sure she didn't put a gun to his stupid ass head and tell him to leave his pathetic wife who is probably loving that fantasia almost died! im sure she didnt do this all because of this guy. it has alot to do with everyone attacking her like shes a bad person and shes not! lots of name calling can really make a person go crazy so give her a break.

Get over yourself. You think your the first women who has been taken by a married man and made a fool of? Grow up, eat your mistakes on move on. Oh and try to learn something from this like not dating married men!

I keep reading everyone messages minus whoever she is and what she has done... I feel bad for her daughter who cares about this man.... Why wasn't she thinking of her little girl when taking those pills... So sad...

I saw this coming the day I saw the news of a sex tape. She's obviously always been a fragile human being.

NEWS FLASH: The married man is the one who betrayed his wife & his marriage vows.

Should Fantasia have walked away, absolutely. But you can't simply tear her down and insult her when HE is the #1 at fault here.

Fantasia has a child who's hearing and seeing all this. Give her a break and let her return to her minimumal life on the B list and let her provide for and love her child. I'm sure this has taught her more of a lesson than she'd ever wished to have learned.

To the rest of you out there who are wearing a ring on your left hand...HONOR YOUR SPOUSE and if you're that unhappy, get a freaking divorce! LOSERS!

Funny how none of the WHITE WOMEN winners have their
faces plastered all over the news calling them
"home-wreckers" and saying they "od'd. Kelly Clarkston
and Carrie Underwood have CLASS and GRACE and can
both SING (unlike Fantasia who can only SCREAM into
a microphone). What an embarrasment she is to American
Idol and to all the fans. I said it then, and I am
saying it now. She NEVER should have won. "You can
put lipstic on a pig, and it is still a pig"....

IT'S CALLED GUILT, NOT AN OVERDOSE. SHE FINALLY REALIZED THAT SHE HAS BECOME A HOMEWRECKER. WHAT A FINE EXAMPLE TO SET FOR HER LITTLE DAUGHTER.
YOU GO FANTASIA.
