CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- All day long, well-wishers stopped by Fantasia Barrino's Piper Glen home.  Some left cards, others wanted to personally leave words of encouragement. A florist delivered flowers.

"When I came out, all I knew to do was to be real," Fantasia told NewsChannel 36 in an interview last year.

The American Idol winner's image has taken some hits recently with rumors of an affair with a married man, a sex tape and a suicide attempt.

The 911 call released Wednesday afternoon sheds some light on what happened.

On the tape, the caller says "the individual took a bottle of aspirin and is losing consciousness."

Fantasia was rushed to the hospital Monday night after that call.

Fantasia's manager reported the incident but he has not returned our calls.  In a statement he said that the stress of being named in a complaint against the married man had taken a toll.
