Sinead O'Connor Reportedly Safe After Apparent Suicide Attempt

DUBLIN (CelebrityAccess) — Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor is reported to be safe and receiving medical assistance after posting what appeared to be a suicide note on her Facebook page on Sunday, Nov. 29th.

In a series of Facebook posts apparently written by O'Connor, she accuses a number of people, including her eldest son and ex-husband of preventing her from seeing her youngest son Shane and describing her grief at the apparent family strife. She also described her struggle with depression following a hysterectomy last summer. In other posts, O'Connor asks for a job, a “warm and friendly” place to live and emergency family legal services.

As Sunday continued, the posts became more ominous.

“Remember the one about the people who didn't think about what might happen if they didn't stop tormenting a cripple? They found out real hard 'how far is too far'. They woke up next day as murderers, believing they'd gone to bed so high and mighty, and so superior to those they'd deemed 'unfit',” she apparently wrote.

And several hours later, came the post: "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.”

Since then, local media has reported that Irish police service The Garda has said that O'Connor is "safe and sound" and receiving medical assistance.

O'Connor, who has previously revealed that she was diagnosed as bi-polar, canceled a series of tour dates last year due to an unspecified medical condition.- Staff Writers
