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 heard that this was a scam artist tag team against Fantasia. From the beginning the husband and wife were scamming this poor girl. Fantasia is young and naive. Fantasia can fight fire with fire. Take a law suit against the husband and wife on the grounds of a broken heart and fraud. You know how to fight back, you are a fighter. The team had you fooled to believe that the husband had separated from his wife but in reality the wife and husband were all the time living under the same roof. Get up Fantasia, wipe yourself off and get you a very good lawyer and you sue these scam artist. It is not your fault that this guy sold you lies. I understand Alicia Keys, Ms. Union the actress were also in this same situation, so your in good company. Be the champion that you are and don't let know body ever think they can take you down. We fall down but we get up!!!!! God Bless You and Your Family. Get well soon!

Carrie has poise, the rest of these wannabe Idol stars could learn a thing or two from her. Too bad she didn't off herself, she's not worth the oxygen.

This (extremely unattractive) Fantasia chick was too lazy to learn to read when she was an adolescent, but found penalty of time to whore around, perhaps she didn't know what A.s.p.i.r.i.n spelled, perhaps she thought it spelled arsenic. I'm not being insensitive, truly if she wanted to kill herself she would be dead - she wanted attention. I have no sympathy for her or her drama-queen moment(s) and it has nothing to do with rather she was screwing a married man or not. -Suicide is a sinful cowardly act. She never even considered what effects her actions would have on her child, so NO I have no sympathy for that selfish heifer.

It is a lot of heartless people in this world and it's sad when people can joke around when someone takes pills to sleep there life away is heartless...I don't care what she took it shouldn't have got to that point. I can only pray she gets better and get help. We as woman take our anger out on the other woman when the attention should be focused on the man. I believe she was used and lied too. She is a generous person look how her brother took advantage of her. I think this was done to boost record sales coming out August 24th, but regardless all....This is sad and we need to say a prayer for all involved...THEY NEED GOD IN THERE LIFE!! I'm speaking from experience. People will use you and leave you out hanging to dry. be careful everyone all that glitter is not GOLD. GOD BLESS 2 ALL

Let's see, you folk who think it is ok to blame Fan for all this? Of course the husband should get awards for doing no wrong.

Lets see how these post read when someone who has knowledge about the situation gets a religion and tell the world all the details of a preplanned situation.

Fan, get some good lawyers even if you have to sell one of your mansions. Check all your legal ownership papers as well as debts. Don't speak to anyone because you never know who may have something to gain. Give intimate details only to your attorneys and assure it will not become the next headlines for TMZ. Remember personal things Mr. Cook said to you during your times with him. Especially about your business. Did he suddenly have a need for cash?

Any man who leaves his wife and babies to soon take up with a rich woman with no shame for his family, is suspect. Maybe she can file a lawsuit but there is so much doubt that even the public can see. Do what you know to do from the ONE above becasue HE will welcome you back with open arms and love, and you know that.

If the Cooks thought it was helplful to let the world know about sex tapes, lets see how they respond when all the details of their lives are aired.

You can affort good lawyers, they can not. Please check your business papers now!!! Write down everything about your personal business that may have been discussed at a time when Mr. Cook was loving you.

You are going to be ok because you have so many who love you, and that soul stirring that can only come from God is still within you. We have all made mistakes, and I mean people who are more known than yourself. God gave you life and a child, don't let satan take it away.

We love you Fan!!

All of you giving advice on meds to kill yourself is ridiculous. Sounds like jealousy to me. Its obvious she was in pain some kind of way and hit a dead end! Fantasia, gurl...we love you.

Some of the comments that I have read here are so heartless. First of all, look at the life she led before becoming an American Idol winner. As her made for tv movie states, "Life is no Fairy Tale". She grew up in hell, and did not have the proper mangement. Then friends and family took advantage of her, and along comes this lying weasel of a man, that also took advantage of her.
It is very hard to trust, when you are being used and abused. First of all get rid of that manger, and place your child and yourself first on your list. I would say, surround yourself with those that love you, and those that have been there for you no matter what, but I do not know where or whom these people may be. I'm sure that Tasia has made it through worse seas than this, she needs to take time for herself, go in that corner and lick those wounds,get your priorities right, and I gurantee that in the next round you will come out fighting. My thoughts and prayers are with her.

People LOVE gossip. Juicy gossip. They make these heartless comments bc they're judgmental hypocrites. When God unveils their dark secrets will we really be surprised. The bible says he who is without SIN cast the first stone. Well NO one is SIN-FREE yet they're on here throwing boulders at Fantasia. Sometimes folks make HUGE mistakes & unfortunately celebrities business is revealed for the whole world to see. She knows she messed up. God loves a person who Repents for their Sins and comes to Him so He can help them get back on their feet. He is Faithful & Just to forgive us when we come clean and remembers our Sins no more,,but these people who THINK they have the right to judge, won't forget and most times don't forgive. Hypocrites.

Fantasia family should be so ashamed of this home wrecker.
She is responsible for breaking up a family. Shame on her. What would be soooo funny is if the wife got her for all her millions and Cook went back to his family and lived rich and happy with his wife and kids where he belongs. Hes probably playing her along with his wife.That would be the ultimate scam. Cause he sure didnt get her name tattooed on him. lol
