Sinead O’Connor’s Facebook Page Taken Down Following Series of Life-Threatening Messages
Following a series of troubling messages, Sinead O’Connor’s Facebook page has been taken down.
After several posts addressing an ongoing custody battle and accusing her family of “a horrific set of betrayals” over the weekend, O’Connor posted a note on Sunday (Nov. 29) asserting she had overdosed at a Dublin hotel (via People):
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. 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.
Police located O’Connor, and she was transported to a hospital. On Tuesday, however, the singer began posting more notes to her Facebook, claiming two of her children visited her in the hospital but left before she woke:
You haven’t been back. Please why are you doing these things to me?? I need you. I need your love. I can’t manage what’s being done to me. I didn’t do anything to deserve the way I’m being treated. To hear that you were here and left was agony. Now I am utterly alone. Please. Please love me. Please come to the hospital and spend time with me and help Fix all this. Please. I’m. Begging you. Don’t leave me so frightened and alone. Don’t treat me like I’m not loved and am worth nothing. Please. If you love me even a little please come and be with me and help me understand what’s happening.
In a final post before the Facebook page was taken down today, O’Connor wrote, “If a woman doesn’t first succeed…. She’ll try, try again. #iWantMyRightToDieAndIWillClaimIt.”
