Just a few days removed from a hospitalization for a rumored suicide attempt, Fantasia Barrino is getting back to work.
The singer’s new album, “Back to Me,” comes out on Facebook and Amazon today, which means scheduled promotional appearances the artist will fulfill. In a statement, Fantasia says:
“I can’t thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time. It has given me the motivation to get back to work and honor the commitments I made to promote Back To Me. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
The challenging time to which Fantasia alludes is based around an alleged affair with Antwaun Cook, as well as a possible lawsuit from his spurned wife and the rumor of a sex tape between the couple.
Over the weekend, Barrino and Cook were filmed together by a VH1 camera crew. This has caused many to speculate that the recent drama in the singer’s life has simply been concocted for Fantasia for Real, the reality show still set to premiere on September 19.
We’ll leave that for readers to debate and simply say for now that Barrino’s promotional appearances kick off on August 24 on Good Morning America. She’ll then perform later in the month on Lopez Tonight, Live with Regis & Kelly and The Wendy Williams Show.
