Domenica 29 novembre la cantante irlandese Sinead O’Connor ha pubblicato sulla sua pagina Facebook un lungo messaggio che molti hanno interpretato come l’annuncio del suo suicidio. Connor diceva di trovarsi in un albergo da qualche parte in Irlanda, di essersi registrata sotto falso nome e di aver preso un’overdose (di farmaci o di droga, probabilmente). Nel messaggio O’Connor diceva di essere “distrutta” e di essere stata tradita e abbandonata dalla sua famiglia e dai suoi figli. O’Connor diceva anche che senza quel messaggio probabilmente nessuno nella sua famiglia si sarebbe accorto della sua assenza e della morte. La polizia irlandese ha confermato domenica sera che O’Connor era stata trovata, che stava bene e che stava ricevendo cure mediche.

There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son’s girlfriend, his friends… after everything I’ve been put through and been forced to go through alone .. And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since Shane became unwell in March, This week has broken me. 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. And has been going on since I had my surgery. The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name
If I wasn’t posting this, my kids and family wouldn’t even find out. Was dead for another fortnight since none of them bother their hole with me for a minute. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they’d never have known. Because apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like shit just when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick. I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all t go fuck myself. I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don’t value me at all. They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t fucking informing them now. 
well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot. When you planned to get me away from my babies did you plan for me losing my mind over it? It being the final straw? For how you’re gonna explain why I died? Make sure you tell the truth. BARRY.. THEY WONT. YOURE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS ME OR THE TRUTH. PLEASE STAND FOR ME AND TELL IT. i can’t play twister. My children don’t care if I live r die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson. I survived it when John waters did it.. I can’t survive Jake doing it.

Prima di postare questo messaggio, O’Connor ne aveva pubblicati altri in cui spiegava di essere una “buona madre” e che contro il parere dei servizi sociali non gli veniva permesso di vedere suo figlio. In altri messaggi O’Connor chiedeva aiuto per denunciare il padre di suo figlio ai servizi sociali per maltrattamento di minori. Prima dell’estate O’Connor aveva interrotto il suo tour dicendo di voler stare vicino a suo figlio malato; nei messaggi pubblicati ieri spiega anche di aver ricevuto un’operazione chirurgica per la rimozione dell’utero e delle ovaie.
