Singer Sinead O’Connor Hospitalized After Tweeting “Suicidal Messages” Following Her Teenage Son’s Suicide

Singer Sinead O’Connor, who just lost her 17-year-old son to suicide, is in the hospital right now, after she went online and threatened to kill herself.


The New York Post reported that Sinead O’Connor has been hospitalized after tweeting harrowing messages suggesting she planned to “follow” son Shane just days after he was found dead.

The distraught 55-year-old singer told fans Thursday afternoon that she was “with cops now on way to hospital” just an hour after her distressing thread about also dying.

“I’ve decided to follow my son. There is no point living without him,” she said of Shane, 17, whose body was found Jan. 7, a day after he went missing from suicide watch at an Irish hospital.

“I only stayed for him. And now he’s gone,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U” star wrote.

In her despondent state, the star blamed herself for her son’s death, saying she was a “monster” who had alienated her family and didn’t “deserve to live.”

“God made me wrong. So I’m sending myself back and I’m finding the only person on this earth who ever truly loved me,” she wrote of her son.

She followed the thread an hour later by reassuring alarmed followers that she was heading to the hospital.


“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that … I’m sorry I upset everyone,” she said of her earlier tweets.

“I am lost without my kid and I hate myself. Hospital will help a while,” she said.

This is very sad, and I worry she will do something to herself when she gets out of the hospital.


Suicide is never the answer. Please pray for her. She needs it.
