Sinead O’Connor was hospitalized after tweeting heartbreaking messages suggesting she was planning to “follow” her son Shane just days after his death.
The distraught 55-year-old singer told fans on Thursday afternoon that she was “With cops on their way to the hospital” just an hour after his painful thread on death too.
“I decided to follow my son. There is no point in living without him, ”she said of Shane, 17, whose body was found on January 7, a day after she went missing during a 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 did not “deserve to live.”
“God did me wrong. So I turn back and find the only person on this earth who has ever really loved me, ”she wrote of her son.
She followed the thread an hour later reassuring alarmed subscribers that she was heading to the hospital.
“I’m sorry. I I shouldn’t have said that … I’m sorry I upset everyone, ”she said of her previous tweets.
“I am lost without my child and I hate myself. The hospital will help for a while, ”she said.
O’Connor shared custody of Shane with Irish folk singer Donal Lunny. The singer has been married four times and has three other children, Jake Reynolds, Roisin Waters and Yeshua Francis Neil Bonadio, according to reports.
