“Nothing Compares 2 U”; singer Sinead O’Connor (her hit song that was written by Prince) is ultimately blaming the death of the “Purple Rain”; singer on comedian, Arsenio Hall.
The 49-year-old has taken to her Facebook page to share her theory of the singer’s death.
“Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s office. Expect their call,”; she writes in the post. “They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave.”;
O’Connor also noted that Hall was Prince and Eddie Murphy’s “b**ch.”;
Following O’Connor’s shocking claims, a rep for the comedian is dismissing the accusations.
“The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd,”; said Hall’s rep, Traci Harper, to “People”;.
Days after responding through his rep, Hall is now responding through his lawyers, with TMZ reporting the former talk show host has slapped O’Connor with a $5-million defamation suit, in which O’Connor is referred to as “a desperate attention-seeker.”;
“In the suit, Arsenio flat out denies ever supplying Prince with illegal drugs — and adds, he hasn’t had contact with Sinead for 25 years,”; adds TMZ. “He also denies spiking her with drugs back in the day … as she claimed.”;
As for what O’Connor’s motivation could be for making the wild allegations, Hall’s lawsuit notes that the singer has “repeatedly said she met Prince a couple times and she “detested’ him,”; claiming that she told Prince “to go f*** himself.”;
O’Connor, Hall’s lawsuit continues, is “well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts.”;
After Hall filed suit, O’Connor struck back in an inflammatory Facebook post, addressing “Arse-inio Hall’s laughable threats.”;
“I’m more amused than I’ve ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching him trying to prove me wrong,”; O’Connor writes. “I’m also very happy to notice that the DEA have taken me seriously enough to be thoroughly questioning all of Prince’s friends and aides from the last thirty years as to his KNOWN history of hard drug use and where he obtained his drugs. I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my d**k. That is if he isn’t too busy sucking someone else’s d**k. : )”;
