Sinead O'Connor has been found safe and sound after allegedly threatening to commit suicide. The troubled singer resurfaced on Facebook after family told police she planned to jump off a bridge.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer's family in Ireland contacted Chicago police after she called to tell them she was having suicidal thoughts.

"Sinead O'Connor called and said, 'I'm on a bridge in Chicago and I'm going to jump,'" DNAinfo reported of Irish authorities reportedly informing Chicago police around 5:30 p.m. local time.

Police Spokesman Thomas Sweeney revealed an officer spotted someone threatening to jump off a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it was not the 49-year-old.

The songstress resurfaced on Facebook dispelling rumors of a suicide attempt.

"Oh and by the way it's bullshit I jumped off a bridge," she posted. "Some stupid bitch up at Swords Garda station decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all."

She added, "Am far too f**king happy for that!!"

The false alarm comes after O'Connor went missing after a bike ride in May. She was found safe 24 hours later.
