The music legend’s official Facebook page carried a post which read: “I have taken an overdose”
Sinead O’Connor is reportedly ‘safe and well’ after sparking concern with a troubling Facebook message this weekend.
A post to Sinead’s verified Facebook page contained a long note which included the sentence: “I have taken an overdose.”
The 48-year-old star told how she had been “howling, crying for weeks” and insisted she “doesn’t matter a shred to anyone” and that her family wouldn’t notice for weeks if she ended her life.
Billboard reports the singer is “safe and sound” after being located by Irish police, and she is being given medical assistance.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer’s page has seen a range of troubling status updates posted over the last few months.
The latest one read: “There is only so much any woman can expected to bear” and claimed she was staying in a hotel in Ireland.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer has has apparently elected to wear her heart – and her legal woes – on her sleeve as she has shared her most intimate thoughts with concerned fans.
Discussing openly the custody of her children, her alleged stalker and being on suicide watch, she has also announced a departure from the music business.
She posted: “I need a new home. And a new job. A new life … Music is over for me. Music did this.
“It rendered me invisible. Murdered my soul. I’m never going back to music.”
She also posted: “Desperately in need of a job and a place to live. Can anyone help?
“I got depressed after the hysterectomy because I got left all alone to recover. Now Im pariah because I got depressed.”
She added: “Me and my PTSD, or depression, which ANY woman would be suffering from since this all kicked off in March and I dealt with it alone.”
“But I have a HUGE spirit which wants to live. And a HUGE heart full of love.”
“If you have a job for me, and a place to stay, where I can smoke, please let me know,” she said.
“I don’t need anything other than one warm room, and not to be living in a silent empty house. I’m good at writing.”
“I’m also a great cleaner. “Im not a job snob. Happy to clean toilets. Have hard work ethic. I love people. I wanna socialise.”
“So all jobs will be considered … But Im a worker and I wanna graft. Kitchen jobs, waitressing … anything at all… if its sociable… and people loving.”
Sinead, 48, has been married four times and has four children.
Ruth Sutherland, Samaritans’ CEO said, “Our research shows that many people find social media to be a crucial outlet when they are struggling to cope.
“If you are concerned about someone you know, or are experiencing difficult feelings, talking through whatever is getting to you can make all the difference – it can be life saving.”
