Entertainment SA’s gossip and News team reports that Irish singer and songwriter Sinead O’Connor tried to commit suicide on Sunday.
The controversial pop music star posted a suicide note on Facebook, claiming that she had booked into an Irish hotel under an assumed name and had taken an overdose.
O’Connor was eventually found by police and, according to the Daily Mail, is being given medical assistance.
The nothing Compares to you singer wrote that she had been howling, crying for weeks and that her family were to blame for her state of mind. There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear, she wrote.
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. If I wasn't posting this, my kids and family wouldn't even find out. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they'd never have known.
I'm such a rotten horrible mother and person, that I've been alone. And have been told by them all to go jump. I'm invisible. I don't matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I've died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah, Strangers like me, but my family don't value me at all. They wouldn't know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn't informing them now.
The 48-year-old mother of four received over 1000 messages of support, with many urging her to keep on fighting. She blames music, her ex husbands and kids for neglecting her and not caring whether she lives of dies. She also vows not to return to the music industry.
We at Entertainment SA wish her speedy recovery and are glad that the police managed to find her in time to save her life.
