Fantasia won the American Idol crown on the 3rd season of the popular show. Fantasia made quite an impression with her stylized gospel-influenced sound, and her dynamic personality.

I didn`t know until now that Fantasia also has a dynamic sex life, she is accused of breaking up a marriage by making several sex tapes with a married man. Fantasia denies that she is responsible for the deterioration of the marriage, but it should be pointed out that Fantasia didn`t deny making sex tapes with the married man.

We don`t know if Fantasia attempted suicide because she feels guilty about her sexual indiscretions, but we do know that she needs the support of her family, friends and fans.
