Fears for singer Sinead O’Connor’s health have been triggered after she wrote what is being reported as a suicide note on Facebook telling fans she had taken an overdose.
In the post, she said that she had booked herself into a hotel in Ireland under a false name and taken more than the recommended dose of a particular drug.
Police have confirmed that she has been found and is receiving medical treatment.
In the Facebook message, she wrote: ‘There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. 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. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they’d never have known. I’m such a rotten horrible mother and person, that I’ve been alone. Howling crying for weeks.’
Get better soon.
