Sinead O’Connor and Arsenio Hall are back in the headlines again.
No, it’s not 1992.
But it could be.
On Monday, the
lesbian bisexual asexual heterosexual lesbian again sexually ambivalent singer accused Arsenio Hall of all people of being at least partially responsible for Prince’s death. Not just that, but she allegedly reported him to police.
In a Facebook post, she wrote:
She followed that up two days later with a second post:
Well, it turns out Arsenio Hall didn’t appreciate being called a drug dealer, an “arse hole,” a narcissist, or a little “bitch.” He also didn’t like being accused of “spiking” Sinead O’Connor at Eddie Murphy’s house. Because the 60-year-old comedian just filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against her.
According to official court documents, Hall accuses O’Connor of being “desperate” and an “attention-seeker” who “has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies” about him, even though they haven’t had any contact with one another “in 25 years.” He is seeking “not less than $5 million” in damages.
“O’Connor knew that there was no truth whatsoever to the vicious lies she spewed about Hall on her Facebook page,” the lawsuit reads, “and that she had concocted them and had no basis to believe that they were true.”
Sinead O’Connor concocting wild and patently false stories in her imagination? We’re #shocked.
“The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd,” Hall’s lawyer, Traci Harper, said.
O’Connor has yet to publicly respond to the lawsuit.
UPDATE: O’Connor has responded… by telling Hall to “suck her dick.” Here’s latest comment over the matter:
