Fantasia says she knew exactly what she was doing when she overdosed earlier this month…she was trying to kill herself.
In an interview with VH1, 26-year-old Fantasia claims she was so depressed about all of the drama surrounding her relationship with a married man that, “I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out.”
Fantasia added, “At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that [expletive].”
She went on, “I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
“I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family – my father, dealing with men and their shit – I was tired,” she says of the incident. “My head was hurting me. I was over it.”
