CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Fantasia Barrino is resting at home after being hospitalized for an overdose.

The American Idol winner returned home at about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to neighbors.

NewsChannel 36 spoke with her mother, Diana Barrino Barber, Thursday afternoon.

She's fine, but there is no comment. It's a personal and private matter, Barrino-Barber said.

Barrino was rushed to a hospital Monday night following an overdose of aspirin and a sleep aid.

Her manager says that earlier that day she had read a court complaint against Antwaun Cook, which accused Barrino of having an affair with the married man and making a sex tape.

The manager says it pushed her over the edge.

The legal system will weigh out everything and come up with their judgment, Barrino-Barber said regarding the Cook complain.

NewsChannel 36 reporter Glenn Counts asked Barrino-Barber if the family intends to go to court to prove the allegations wrong.

No comment, she said, but she flashed a thumbs-up sign through a glass door after going inside the home.

Barrino has a reality show on VH1 and a crew has been taping the events of the last week.

Barrino's mother came out of her home a second time Thursday afternoon, and the reality crew was with her when NewsChannel 36 spoke with her again.

There has been a lot of speculation about whether she actually tried to hurt herself. Can you say anything about that? Counts asked.

No comment, Barrino-Barber said.

NewsChannel 36 also asked Barrino's manager when she would speak publically about the situation. Brian Dickens told us, not yet.
