Fantasia Talks Suicide Attempt

After much speculation about her recent suicide attempt, Fantasia Barrino has cleared up all the rumors on Good Morning America, and explains what happened the morning she tried taking her life. She stated that it wasn't only the lawsuit that was filed against her which caused the singer to want to end her life, but it was a combination of everything that has happened over the past six years.

"There's so much that people don't understand. They just see the glitz and the glamour, and they feel like life is so perfect, but we're human and we go through things."

"I think everybody feels like I tried to harm myself over a man, but you know I’ve been in a lot of bad relationships.  I think that had somewhat to do with it because it was so heavy, it was brand new information, I was already going through so much. But I think it was just six years of everything, of me holding all that stuff on the inside and not letting it out…I got very, very tired."

I feel for Fantasia, because the blogs have been especially harsh on her lately. I can understand how a person could only take so much constant criticism. I sincerely hope she receives all the help that is needed to get through this fiasco.
