Fantasia Barrino is released from a North Carolina hospital

Getprev-4 Fantasia Barrino has been released from the hospital, according to her manager Brian Dickens.

The 26-year-old "American Idol" champion has been hospitalized since Monday night after she overdosed on aspirin and a sleeping aid, according to a statement Dickens issued Tuesday.

"She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans," Dickens wrote in a new statement. "She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration."

Barrino took the medications because she was distraught after learning that a North Carolina woman accused her of breaking up her marriage in divorce papers. Dickens has acknowledged that Barrino had a relationship with the man but only because she believed he was separated.

We love "American Idol" champion,I hope she will be health.

I just want you to know that I have been in your shoes I am just not famous. As a woman we love with our heart but don't let the devil let you think any less of yourself. You are human and we make mistakes, just pray and ask God to take all the hurt and pain out of your mind and soul. Just ask God to renew you and make you whole again. And trust me he will do it sooner than you think. And remember to live and love every momemt of your life and especially every moment with your daughter. She needs you! She needs you to survive and live so she can grow and flourish to grow up and be a young woman of hope and promise!

i think they should leave the hole thing alone, because its stupid.

And no matter what we go through.But if U take Your Life. What would that do to your precious Daughter? Next time U feel hurt and scare fall to your Knees and ask God who In Control. And take this feeling. And give God that Glory! One more thing Fantasia listen to this song that I been feeling in my heart. I've ot A Testimony. And if that help U lsiten to this song by Yolanda Adams, The Battle IsThe Lord! You Can Make IT!
