Sinead O’Connor Targets Family Following Suicide Threat
Following her suicide threat this weekend, Sinead O’Connor has written a new Facebook post directed at some of her family members. The singer was reportedly found “safe and sound” Sunday after posting to Facebook that she had overdosed at a hotel in Ireland.
“Jake, Roisin, Jr., Frank, Donal, Eimear, I never wanna see you again,” she wrote, referencing her eldest son, daughter, an unidentified “Jr.,” the father of one of her children, ex-husband and her brother, respectively. “You stole my sons from me. Then you had hypocrisy to come to hospital and then not be here when I wake and not pick up phone? I’m shit to you. You’re dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons. You left me alone for 12 weeks!
“Why did I have to hear it was your hypocritical asses here while I was unconscious??” she continued. “And now you’re gone and not picking up phone? You are child-stealing murderers, I never want to see or hear from any of you again. Why were you here when you’re the ones who put me here???? And where the fuck are you now??? Murderers. Liars. Hypocrites. All of you. You caused this.”
Irish news source BreakingNews.ie reported Sunday that the vocalist was receiving medical assistance. In her suicide note, she wrote that the only way she’d be able to get her family’s attention, following what she vaguely called “a horrific set of betrayals,” was by publicly threatening suicide. “Apparently … I’m such a rotten horrible mother and person, that I’ve been alone,” she wrote. “Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all [to] 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.”
The singer had previously posted a photo of a court order pertaining to custody of her two youngest sons Shane and Yeshua, claiming that on Monday they would both become wards of the court. “Here’s your court order Donal Lunny,” she wrote. “It says ‘joint custody.’ … You and Jake are going to jail, under the terms of the order you falsely claimed supported you in preventing me from seeing my son.” Previous posts detail her concerns for Shane, suggesting he is depressed and that her family members prevented her from getting him help.
