Loredana Berte, the wife of tennis player Bjorn Borg, swallowed barbiturates Wednesday in an apparent suicide attempt, police said.

Doctors pumped Berte's stomach, and she was not in danger of dying, according to officials at Fatebenefratelli hospital.Berte, a 39-year-old pop singer, was discovered around dawn by firemen who broke down the door of her Milan apartment after being summoned by a servant, said Letizia Cecotti, a Milan police spokeswoman.

Berte had been upset in recent weeks about news reports that her marriage to Borg was on the rocks. She called Italian journalists in Monte Carlo in an agitated state earlier this week to object to the reports.
