The troubled Irish singer Sinead O’Connor was found by police a few hours after she posted her suicide note on Facebook. O’Connor said she had just taken an overdose and that she was not at home. She did say that she was at an undisclosed hotel somewhere in Ireland under an assumed name.
According to Fox News on November 30, it took police about two hours to find O’Connor and she is fine. For the past few days O’Connor has been posting ramblings on social media on how her family has abandoned her.
Us Magazine reports that the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer starts off her suicide note saying:
“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. There is only so much a woman can be expected to bear.”
The police received numerous calls after this disturbing Facebook post was read and thankfully she was found safe. “Sinead is safe and well,” said a spokesman at the Pearse Street Garda Station in Dublin, Ireland. It has not been confirmed if she did take an overdose or just made the claim that she had.
The troubled singer had previously made a suicide attempt. O’Connor confessed on “Oprah” that on her 33 birthday she tried to kill herself. She also revealed that she’s been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder on that same show back in 2007.
This time around she wrote that taking her children away was the last straw. This is one of the last things she wrote on her Facebook suicide note. She also wrote that she holds no value for her family and they wouldn’t know that she was dead until weeks had passed if she wasn’t informing them on her Facebook page today.
O’Connor writes, “Well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot.” She also had these words for her family:
“Apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like s–t even when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick,” she wrote. “I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling for weeks. And I’ve been told by them all t[o] go f–k myself. I’m invisible. No one has come near me.”
