Following a scary overdose and hospital admission, Fantasia Barrino is finally home.

The singer is recovering from a tumultuous couple of weeks her father says, as he’s released a statement thanking followers for their love and assuring all of us his daughter will be okay.

“Fantasia was pleased with all the messages of support from her fans, but just now she just needs to rest and bring everything back together,” Joseph Barrino said. “This has been a difficult time but she will pull through.”

As for Fantasia’s daughter, Zion, Mr. Barrino says the young girl “was staying with both myself and her grandmother but she is back with Fantasia now.”

“She is getting a lot of comfort with being with her daughter and the doctors have told her just to rest,” Joseph added. “My daughter just needs time – she is a strong girl and with God’s help she will be okay.”

Unfortunately, Fantasia’s troubles may just be beginning. Because her native North Carolina is one of the few states that still has certain adultery laws on the books, she could actually be sued for having an affair with Antwaun Cook.

At last check, Paula Cook was mighty steamed over her husband’s relationship with the singer and might take legal action against them both. We’ll keep readers apprised of any developments, and simply wish a healthy recovery to Fantasia for now.
