SinÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©ad O’Connor caused a bit of controversy and worry among her fans this week when she posted some very disturbing tweets on her Twitter page.
According to E! Online, on Wednesday night, the Irish singer, who famously tore up a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live almost two decades ago, started off what seemed to be a suicidal rant, saying:
“Had to go psychiatrist for routine renew prescription etc. She says I’m a bad mum and mental for talking so openly about sex in public…So now I wish suicide wud kill me.”
“All this s–t we’re not supposed to say. Including suicidal feelings, sex, etc. U just get treated like a crazy person. I want to go…To heaven SO bad. Have for yrs…But I don’t wanna abandon my kids. But if I cud die without them knowing I did it myself I wud. An I know every1 will say I’m a c–t for saying that.. But f–k all this s–t we’re ‘not supposed to say’. I’m so tired. 24 yrs…Of being treated like a crazy person. Can’t manage any more. Badly wish cud die without it ruining my kids lives.”
Her final tweet read: “Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself…Without my kids finding out I did it deliberately pls tell me asa f–kin p.”
According to IrishCentral.com, local police in Bray, County Wicklow, went to O’Connor’s home after receiving a call from a fan who read her tweets.
