Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor's life has been one emotional rollercoaster this week. In a string of posts that started on Sunday, the late '80s-early '90s pop rock singer took to social media to reveal details of the dramatic custody battle for her two youngest sons, threatened suicide and denounced her family for abandonment, as previously reported by HNGN. Now, after a second suicide attempt, O'Connor's official Facebook page has been taken down.
O'Connor's loved ones reached out to Facebook, urging the social media site to take down her public, verified page following another morbid post, a source told People. It is unclear which one of O'Connor's family members or friends requested the deactivation.
"If a woman doesn't first succeed... She'll try, try again," O'Connor wrote in her last post, according to a screenshot obtained by The Irish Mirror. "iWantMyRightToDieAndIWillClaimIt."
In her first post, O'Connor exposed the details of a nasty custody battle for her 11-year-old son Shane Lunny (whom she shares with her ex Donal Lunny) and 8-year-old son Yeshua Bonadio (whom she shares with ex Frank Bonadio). O'Connor also has a 28-year-old son named Jake Reynolds and a 19-year-old son named Roisin Waters from previous relationships.
"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," O'Connor wrote in her first post on Sunday, as HNGN previously reported. "The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect."
O'Connor was found by Irish authorities who were tipped by concerned fans. She was hospitalized for a drug overdose and went on to post a series of updates, calling out her family for abandoning her when she needed them the most. She had a change of heart and followed up that post with a plea to her oldest sons to visit her in the hospital, which was then followed by her second suicide threat.
