Sinead O’Connor has been found safe after she posted a disturbing message on her Facebook account on Sunday. The troubled Irish singer posted a rambling message on her verified social media account, calling out her family, the fathers of her four children, and her children’s friends for how they’ve treated her since her hysterectomy surgery in August, before stating that she took an overdose.
After claiming that she has been “punished” ever since her surgery, O’ Connor wrote: “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.”
In her heartbreaking manifesto, the 48-year-old singer also added that her children and their fathers don’t care if she lives or dies, and she speculated that they wouldn’t even notice if she hadn’t posted her suicide threat online. But Sinead O’Connor’s overdose threat quickly got the attention of authorities in Ireland. Irish Web site breakingnews.ie revealed that O’Connor was found by Irish police just two hours after her troubling Facebook message posted, and she was reported to be “safe and sound.”
Sinead O’Connor claims that her family has abandoned her in the months since her painful hysterectomy, and she described “a horrific set of betrayals, writing that she has “died a million times already with the pain of it.” In addition to her surgery recovery, the mother of four has been engaged in a heated custody battle with Frank Bonadio, the father of her youngest son, according to Fox News.
