Bisexual pop singer Sinead O’Connor, who once ruled the music charts with hits such as “Nothing Compares 2 U,” has threatened suicide after accusing her family members of “a horrific set of betrayals.” In an emotional, rambling message posted to her Facebook page, O’Connor, who has been open about her struggles with depression in the past, revealed she had taken an overdose. She warned, “I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out.”
According to BreakingNews, O’Connor has since been found “safe and sound” and is now receiving medical assistance from Irish police.
Read her entire note below.
There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son’s girlfriend, his friends… after everything I’ve been put through and been forced to go through alone .. And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since Shane became unwell in March, This week has broken me. The withholding of my babies from me without any sound reason by their fathers, Frank and Donal, and by Jake and the rest of my family, is a horrific set of betrayals. And has been going on since I had my surgery. The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name
If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out. Was dead for another fortnight since none of them bother their hole with me for a minute. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they’d never have known. Because apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like shit just when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick. I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all t go fuck myself. I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don’t value me at all. They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t fucking informing them now.
well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot. When you planned to get me away from my babies did you plan for me losing my mind over it? It being the final straw? For how you’re gonna explain why I died? Make sure you tell the truth. BARRY.. THEY WONT. YOURE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS ME OR THE TRUTH. PLEASE STAND FOR ME AND TELL IT. i can’t play twister. My children don’t care if I live r die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson. I survived it when John waters did it.. I can’t survive Jake doing it.
How awful… She’s had so many episodes of depression due to family. I hope she comes through this…. She is so amazing as an artist….so very very sad xxx
Girlfriend needs to see a shrink.
I hope she finds the help she needs.
David Andrew Roubideaux
This is such sad news. I hope to God she’s alright and that she can overcome depression! 🙁
Vance Carlisle Avinger
She’s been ill for years. She needs serious mental help.
May she heal.

Her homes should be ashamed of themselves. Kicking someone when they’re down and then turning their backs and rubbing salt in the wound. Noone deserves this sorry ass form of abuse to the point of isolation, grief and finally trying to end her pain because all the people she cared about destroyed her will to live. Shane on them. I hope they now know how serious their actions, neglect and abuse have been to a dear sweet talented, loving soul. May our Lord keep her under His wings as not to be harmed from her barbaric family and friends. In the name of Jesus AMEN
She’s been going buck wild on FB lately, so much so that it’s difficult to follow. Someone should have caught this before she got to that point. She clearly needs/needed help.
Terry Mitchell Hill
This is why people with her mental illness don’t need to be on social media. Sorry. Just sayin
Terry Mitchell Hill
Wait she’s the one that tore up the Pope on live TV and destroyed her own career instantly…..gets whatever happens
She really does need better mental health and emotional support. Posting a suicide note to social media is a scream for help. I pray she gets it.
The woman needs help.
Gabriella Robyn Smith ð???ð??¥ð???
@Terry Mitchell Hill: STFU you unfeeling ugly POS.
Joseph Antonio Pinho
Joey Hague did you see this?
the old “just sayin” excuse for being vile…people with mental illnesses need social media, sometimes it’s the only way of being part of the world. If she hadn’t posted this then maybe she wouldn’t have been found. Your statement is heartless and thoughtless.
Dorothy Alice Kilroy
@Terry Mitchell Hill: seriously? You think she deserves to be in this state?
@gothrockchick: @Chad Schoch: My comment is for you Chad.
She was right bout the Pope and the Priest years ahead of anyone else.
Poor girl. I hope she gets the help she so desperately needs.
@Terry Mitchell Hill: While it did ruin her career, she was protesting the pope’s cover-up of the catholic church child sex abuse scandal. I don’t think you’d have the guts to do the same.
I hope she gets the help that she needs
Swift kick in the ass to old for all that bullshit
Jeffrey Scott Guillermo
What can I say….nothing compares to you
Gamarra Valentino Servon Soran
wasn’t she beefing with miley this time last year??? seems the holiday triggers her
Girl’s a friggin’ mess!
Nicole E Breault ð???
@Will Glitzern: she didn’t mean the openly gay American film maker famous for “Cry Baby”, “Hair Spray” and most of Divine’s films. She meant her former romantic partner.
Very sad. Mental illness is so misunderstood. I hope she gets the help she needs.
glad she’s still alive
This bothers me because we gotta accept that some people just don’t want to exist and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. We should be allowed to do so in an orderly humane and responsible way with out having to go through all this drama. Not everybody wants to continue living and that’s ok.
What a crazy b!tch
Love and prayers
Attention whore does what?
So sad. I hope she gets help. Family can be poisonous sometimes.
Terrible story how sad xxxx
My heart aches for this talented creature.
@Nate Valriz: Are you kidding me? We just “gotta accept” that some people are suicidal and there is “nothing wrong with that”? Are you serious?? There is *everything* wrong with that. People who are clinically depressed and as a result are suicidal need HELP. There are medications for that. It sounds to me like she’s off her. What boggles my mind here are the number of people ready to crucify here entire family because of this raving accusatory note that she wrote. I don’t know what “babies” she means but it sounds like whatever children are being “kept” from her MIGHT be being kept from her for their own well being. I for one would like all the facts here beyond this note written by someone who is very clearly mentally disturbed.
..crikey she definitely sounds furious but what’s the main reason? Is she upset because of her sexually is basically not accepted, or her family has become worried about how her children getting raised by a lesbian/bisexual?
If anyone reads her posts on her page.. She’s absolutely a nutcase now. I used to be a fan but not anymore !
Loren Michel, She’s better off without you.
Honestly, she sounds more like somebody who has gone off their medication. If you read the posting, everybody is against her, there is a big conspiracy everywhere.
I couldn’t say for sure, but it seems like if she can get back on medication that this situation in her mind may calm down. I hope that the situation doesn’t get out of hand.
This is what happens when fame comes to you at a young age without anyone knowing at that even at that time there is something seriously wrong with you. I knew it the night she pulled that stunt on Saturday Night Live and couldn’t figure out for the life of her why she got booed off of the stage a few days later during a concert. This chick has been playing hockey with a warped puck for years.
@1EqualityUSA: Sinead is not better off with or without one facebook fan. Its pretty irrelevant given that she is in need of serious psychiatric help at the moment.
Her life has always been so sad, I hope she finds peace.
@Terry Mitchell Hill: Hardly destroyed her career. Tjhe pope is just as valid a target of criticism as any other leader. More valid actually as he laughingly claims to be able to speak for god and be head of the “one true church”. that very concept is ridiculous.
I hope Sinead gets some help.
Take care of yourself love.
@DarkZephyr: Thank you. Being around a mentally ill person is a horrible situation, and can be dangerous. To think that just for no reason her ENTIRE family decided to betray her is idiotic. They may well have been driven to the brink by her illness and refusal to seek help.
It is quite similar to alcoholism — mentally ill people can and are abusive and hurtful. If the person refuses to seek help, then the best thing is for the family to get away from her so that they are out of harm’s way. She has to hit rock bottom before she will seek help, and let’s hope that this is the case here.
@Cam: I have a friend who is mentally ill. When she is on her meds, she is fine most of the time. When she goes off them, she becomes catatonic, depressed and contracts all sorts of conspiracy theories. She chases away all the people who are around her to help her.
That sounds a lot like what is happening here. She needs to be on her meds, and she must take them regularly for the rest of her life. If she doesn’t, then I can hardly blame her family for leaving her.
This, this tells us how IMPORTANT is to have loving human beings as friends and FAMILY, even if we have to choose that family.
Unconditional love is hard to find, but we must find those who are willing, and shut the doors to those who choose not to embrace us. Why waste our time on the latter, even if they happen to share the same blood.
@Terry Mitchell Hill: No jerk. She was making a political comment when she tore up a picture of the Pope. She was sending a message of protest about all the Catholic Churche’s Priests molesting young boys (and young girls too) and how the whole matter had been swept under the rugs by the Catholic Hierarchy in Ireland. She did it as an act of desperation, knowing full well it would hurt her career. She acted ethically. What’s your ‘effin excuse, hypocrite? I wish Sinead O’Connor peace in her life. She deserves it.Now go crawl back under the rock you emerged from…
@Chuck McKiernan: I am the first to admit I am batshit crazy on facebook but she takes it to another realm. A couple months ago she had a tour cancelled or she was sick or I don’t know what but posting apologies to her band on facebook as opposed to dealing with them face to face and just shirking off any personal financial liability towards them, it raised an eyebrow. Then just the other night an extended rant about her son being kept from her by someone who was exposing him to hardcore porn & the police wouldn’t help her as they were taking the other side. Throw in some “this is Ireland today” and I was ready to send her a note saying it’s not the right forum. Now this, I hope she gets the help she needs.
