Sinead O’Connor Found Safe After Threatening Suicide On Facebook

sinead o'connor

Sinead O’Connor has a long history of mental illness and has been very open about it. Like anyone who suffers with depression, bipolar disorder, etc., she’s had high and low points over the years, and the low points are extremely low. One such point apparently came over the weekend, when Sinead posted what appeared to be a threat of suicide on Facebook, scaring fans and friends.

The issue seemed to have to do with her sons, who were being kept from her by their respective fathers. Why that happened or what the actual drama was is unclear, but what is clear is that Sinead seemed to be ready to end her own life. Thankfully, she was found safe in Ireland by police

There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son’s girlfriend, his friends… after everything I’ve been put through and been forced to go through alone .. And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since Shane became unwell in March, This week has broken me. The withholding of my babies from me without any sound reason by their fathers, Frank and Donal, and by Jake and the rest of my family, is a horrific set of betrayals. And has been going on since I had my surgery. 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

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. Because apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like shit just when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick. I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all t go fuck myself. I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don’t value me at all. They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t fucking informing them now.

well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot. When you planned to get me away from my babies did you plan for me losing my mind over it? It being the final straw? For how you’re gonna explain why I died? Make sure you tell the truth. BARRY.. THEY WONT. YOURE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS ME OR THE TRUTH. PLEASE STAND FOR ME AND TELL IT. i can’t play twister. My children don’t care if I live r die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson. I survived it when John waters did it.. I can’t survive Jake doing it.

Such a shame. I don’t for one second think that mental illness doesn’t make a person difficult to handle or live with, but I also think that those who suffer with mental illnesses deserve to be treated like human beings. I hope she gets the help she needs and finds some kindness and understanding somewhere.

If you’re interested in reading more dirty laundry being aired publicly, Sinead has posted PLENTY over the past several days, including photos of a court order showing that she has joint custody of her sons.

  • Read Evil Beet for YEARS (since Sasha) – love Evil Beet Gossip (and I love being a hater ;-) ) – sad to see you guys are closing down. Good luck in your future ventures to all of you xxxxx

  • Also an OG reader here! Been reading since the very beginning, and while you’ve made quite the array of eyebrow-raising changes over the years…I’m sure I don’t stand alone saying I am sad to see you go. :/


  • I’ve been a regular and frequent reader since the first year- this was my first gossip blog. I’ll miss you guys!

    • Aw, so glad you’ve stuck around this long – we’re lucky to have kept you through all the changes!

  • You’ve been part of my morning routine since the very beginning! :(
    Is this really the last post ever??

  • I’ve been reading since Sasha; ive seen a lot of people come and go here (anyone else remember Wendie?) I’ve visited every day for years. Good luck with everything, sad to see you guys go.

  • Nooo! Don’t go! This site has since the moment I discovered it shared my digital hatred towards Perez Hilton and now you… You’re leaving? My morning routines will be so much more boring and my heart feels a little achy. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into this site, it was greatly appreciated. Goodluck with all other things called life! X!

    • Aww, thanks for being so nice. I do indeed hate Perez Hilton, and we’ll forever have that in common. I’ll miss bitching about celebs and antagonizing the haters (which was so, so easy to do) as if celebrity gossip means anything in our real lives. It was great to have you around, and I’ve loved reading your comments!

  • Sinead….you really need a rat to gnaw that goiter off your chin, ugh! EB staff.. You finally killed it, I wonder why it took so long. Gonna miss Pik Nik , Mireee, & guest. The others who ran this site into the ground, not so much. Later hags!

  • I’ve been following your site for YEARS. Im sad to see y’all go. Hook a sista up with some sister sites or something! I don’t want to resort to TMZ or some crap lol :P

  • You guys can’t leave on this note. You HAVE to do another article. A recap article of your time here or SOMETHING, but not thiiiisssssss.

  • I’m really sad you stop. I’m addicted to your blog for 10 years. now i need to figure out something else to do while long hours at work ?
    good luck for everything in the future!

  • It’s very sad to see this page go, I still type Evilb.. and click on it every morning like I did every day for years (since Sasha) other than Sasha my fav writers were Molls and Emily, I’ll miss this website very much.

  • Ending this site like this… is lame. There could have been one last article or something funny….but to end it with Sinead? It’s a reflection of where this site went… (insert raspberry sound).

  • oh my Gosh , I’ve been reading you guys since I was still living in Romania and you made me happy in providing me with all the american culture that I needed at the time , sad to see you go and I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors :D

  • Jeez Jennifer they gave you the keys to the car and you drove it str8 into the ditch. jk I have enjoyed your vindictive petty way of making celebs answer for their BS. keep your stick on the ice ;-P
