Fantasia 911 Call -- She 'Took a Bottle of Aspirin'

8/11/2010 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made on Monday night from somebody concerned that "American Idol" champ Fantasia Barrino had just ingested a "bottle of aspirin."

Fantasia Barrino 911 Call Audio
The caller -- who was outside of Fantasia's North Carolina home at the time -- informed the 911 operator that Barrino was slowly losing consciousness ... and had been moved into the shower.

The operator instructed the caller to remove Fantasia from the shower.

Cops arrived to the scene a short time later -- and Fantasia was eventually transported to a North Carolina hospital.

Fantasia's rep announced yesterday that the singer was in stable condition.

UPDATE: Fantasia's rep says the singer has been released from the hospital.

I hate to sound jaded about her motives but I do believe her new album is coming out in about two weeks and as they say any publicity is better than no publicity. If she was seriously depressed I would think she would use something a little more potent than aspirin. I am afraid this will start a whole new trend of suicide attempts along with sex tapes as attention getters. I don't feel as bad for her as I do for her daughter. Get over yourself and start focusing on what is really important; your child and how your behavior will effect her future!

OK first nitwits, asprin can be dangerous. It causes EXTREME INTERNAL BLEEDING WHICH IS WHY THEY TELL HEART PATIENTS WITH CLOTS TO TAKE ONE A DAY...An entire bottle is very dangerous and if left untreated, she could have bled internally and DIED. Just because she didn't decide to blow her brains out instead doesn't mean that this young girl is SICK AND IN TROUBLE MENTALLY. Period. Probably O'd after reading some of these cruel comments, but this is the world we live in so she must deal. I hope she gets the emotional and mental help she needs, stop dealing with MARRIED MEN, PERIOD and get her life together. She has too much God given talent that rejects are begging to be blessed with to toss it all away ESPECIALLY ON A STANKAZZ CHEATING MAN. Next time, give HIM the pills (and a gun). How about that?

lol!!! you talk about the cruel comments made about her but have no problem saying give him the pills and a gun. you worry about her reading posts but don't care that his children will one day be able to read posts about their dad. posts like your give him the pills and a gun. apparently cruel comments are fine as long as you're the one deciding who they're about.

This is what happens when you try to date a married man. It always ends in disaster. Call Gloria Allred. Perhaps she can extort the man in question.

Yes, an overdose of aspirin can kill you. It raises the PH of the blood, the lungs work to reduce the PH and respiratory arrest may occur. Confusion and seizures my occur from too little oxygen to the brain or low blood sugar that develops because of the body's inability to properly metabolize glucose. It also messes with certain electrolytes that make the heart function. It is not a fast death. I wouldn't recommend trying it. I would recommend reaching out to a mental health expert. For every problem there is a solution.

PLEASE!!! The radio news stations ALL reported on how she was seeing a MARRIED man, as was Alicia Keys around the same time. What deceiving??? That she was determined to be a homewrecker?? I hope she is ok, but feel no sympathy at all.

Joe Jackson an illiterate child abuser    

She is a beautiful black woman; not half white, not lighter skinned - she is beautifully black! the real mackoy. TOO TOO BAD some of you including so called black people too with 'massa' mentality, think being very dark skinned equals ugly! GO TO HELL! AND SHE CAN SING Too!!!

GET WELL SOON FANNY, and next time don't get involved with these pieces of sh@#. Look for someone in your tax bracket! But then again they all want light skinned, half white or white women!! That is the road american black athletes and entertainers go, then with their hypocritical mouths they talk about 'racism and injustice' and all types of sh#t.

Maybe that'll teach you the hard way not to fool around with a married man and make sex tapes. She's obviously not very bright.

I don't hate her and don't want to see her ill but..... I don't like her voice AT ALL! She screams when she sings.

You have to be pretty ill for a bottle of aspirin to kill you. Sounds like either a genuine cry for help or a publicity stunt.

Why did he sound so calm? That sounds like her manager on the phone, but he didn't seem to concerned about her slipping slowly unconscious.

oh, and ps to bonehead. Taking a bottle of aspirin is not the way you want to die. You bleed out internally and it's not especially comfortable sitting there while all your organs shut down. I'm sure she picked a generic drug so people wouldn't think she was a drug user after she committed suicide....
