Sinead O’Connor took to Facebook to apologize to her family for attacking them last year in the midst of her breakdown.
According to the Irish Mirror, the fight concerned a home O’Connor owned and then sold. “Last year I did something…unforgivable because I was out of my mind. I insulted very viciously, people I love. My family specifically…,” the post reads. “I want to apologize here for the fact I did such an awful thing. I am nothing but remorseful and it is, as I said, unforgivable…”
She wrote that her family is actually “really cool,” and took the blame for the fight. “It’s me who’s been the total A-Hole. And it really hurt my family, what I did with Facebook.”
In the post, she also praises her father and calls him one of her own personal heroes. “He’s very emotional in a good way…he loves poetry and music. He just wants a peaceful life. Poor guy.. can you imagine having to have a daughter like me? I’ve been the mythical ‘third child is always trouble,'” the singer admits.The news comes after comedian Arsenio Hall dropped his $5-million lawsuit against the singer in March. O’Connor had taken to Facebook following the death of Prince in 2016 claiming that Hall had given Prince drugs, prompting the former late-night host to take legal action.
The news comes after the singer apologized to comedian Arsenio Hall in February for suggesting the former late-night host was indirectly responsible for the death of Prince. Hall sued the Irish singer for defamation but dropped his $5-million lawsuit in March following O’Connor’s apology.
“I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince’s drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince’s death. I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally,” she told TMZ in a statement.
