Well this is a whole lot of messy sadness for a Sunday. Earlier today, Sinead O’Connor had people thinking the worst after she posted what appeared to be a suicide note to her Facebook page. According to Sinead’s note, which is very long and obviously a huge bummer to read, Sinead had checked into a hotel somewhere in Ireland under an assumed name and had “taken an overdose.”
As for the why, Sinead pointed at her husband, Barry Herridge (who she is apparently still married to), her kids, as well as her son’s girlfriend and his friends, and accused them of betraying her after she had a hysterectomy on August 26. She also claims they’re guilty of “appalling cruelty” and trying to keep her babies from her.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Sinead has swatted at her family on Facebook. Yesterday, Sinead accused her son and her son’s fathers of keeping her sons from her and saying she was an unfit mother in a really, really long open letter. Just like it’s not the first time she’s talked about ending it all on Facebook either; a little over a week ago, Sinead used Facebook to let everyone know she had been admitted to the hospital and had been put on suicide watch.
Shortly after her note was posted, people started looking for Sinead, and she was found her before anything really bad could happen. TMZ says police have confirmed that she was found somewhere in Dublin “safe and sound“, and that she’s currently getting medical attention. Hopefully part of that medical attention involves a good hug, because it sounds like she could use it.
