Singer-songwriter Sinead O’Conor has been located safely in Dublin after claiming she took an overdose.
The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, who underwent a hysterectomy in August, posted a worrying message on Facebook on Sunday (November 29) claiming she had checked into a hotel in Ireland under a different name and had overdosed, reported People magazine.
A source said the authorities located the singer and police are no longer involved.
“I have taken an overdose,” O’Connor wrote.
“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.”
The 48-year-old accused her family of “appalling cruelty” and mentioned her health and a battle against two of her ex husbands to see her youngest children, Shane Lunny, 11, and Yeshua Bonadio, 8.
The upsetting note went on to say that O’Connor feels she’s regarded as “scum” and “invisible,” before stating “you’ve finally got rid of me.”
The incident is not the first time O’Connor has allegedly attempted to take her own life. According to published reports, a series of suicidal tweets from the star in 2011 attracted a visit from police.
