Sinead O’Connor threw fans and loved ones into a panic on Sunday after she posted a frightening message on Facebook claiming she had “taken an overdose.”
“This week has broken me,”wrote O’Connor, who attempted suicide 15 years. “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.”
O’Connor, 48, blasted her family and claimed they turned their backs on her after undergoing a hysterectomy earlier this year.
“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 claimed. “I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling for weeks.”
O’Connor, who is in the midst of a vicious visitation fight with her youngest son’s dad, also wrote that her family “wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t f--king informing them now.”
“Well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot,” she continued. “Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again.”
Irish police reportedly were able to locate O’Connor and said she was currently “safe and sound.”
