*Fantasia Barrino was released from a Charlotte, N.C. hospital late Wednesday and is currently recovering at home following an overdose on aspirin and sleep medication, her manager stated.
“She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans,” her manager Brian Dickens said. “She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.”
The overdose came just after Barrino, 26, was named in a court filing alleging that she was having an affair with a married man.
The singer denied she was responsible for breaking up the marriage of Paula and Cook. But, on Tuesday, she admitted having dated Cook “off and on for 11 months.”
Barrino says she believed Cook and his wife were separated, and is now “heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused.”
Antwaun Cook, a father of two sons (Christian, 6, and Jackson, 2), was living a low-profile life in Charlotte as the manager of a T-Mobile store and a newly-hired real estate agent.
According to Paula Cook’s legal papers, she married Antwaun in October 2005 and only started living separately on June 16, 2010.
Among some of the wife’s allegations: Cook and Barrino carried on an affair before she split with her husband, even making a sex tape, the two frequented “bars, restaurants, nightclubs and the like” together, and that they had matching tattoos.
In the complaint, Cook’s wife seeks custody of their two kids, along with child support and alimony.

An East Carolina University business alum who played football at the school and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, Cook obtained his real estate license in 2006 so he could “share the knowledge from my own ‘good’ and ‘interesting’ experiences in the homebuying and selling process,” he says on a Web site for Keller Williams Realty, the firm he joined in August.
Describing himself as “extremely motivated” on his LinkedIn profile, Cook has also had an 8-year-long career in the telecommunications industry, including his other current job as a retail sales manager for a local T-Mobile store – where he apparently first met Barrino.
