The singer's overdose was apparently caused by a combination of aspirin and a sleep aid, her rep told TMZ, but it's not "life threatening."

The rep said, "Yesterday, she was totally overwhelmed by the lawsuit and the media attention... She was dehydrated and exhausted at the time. Fantasia is stable now. She will be released from the hospital soon."

Barrino is currently being sued by a woman who claims the singer broke up her marriage and made sex tapes with her husband.
