The depressed singer was posting disturbing messages on her Twitter, saying she wants to go to heaven but doesn't want her children to know.
"Nothing Compares to You" singer Sinead O'Connor has shocked people in the past few months and she just did it again earlier this week with a suicide contemplation. On her Twitter page, she wrote disturbing messages after visiting her psychiatrist on Wednesday, September 14, leading people to question her mental state.
"All this s*** 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' she continued," she wrote. The 44-year-old asked her followers the best way to end her life without her children knowing. She has four kids aged between four and twenty four.
"But I don't wanna abandon my kids. But if I cud die without them knowing I did it myself I wud," she continued. "Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself. Now I f****** wish suicide wud kill me."
One Twitter follower alerted the Irish police about her suicide messages. A squad car was dispatched on Wednesday from local police station in Bray, County Wicklow to visit O'Connor's house and ensure her personal safety.
O'Connor revealed that her broken marriage to Steve Cooney prompted her depression in the last few months. She split from Cooney, who is her third husband, in March this year. A couple of weeks ago, the singer was looking for a sex partner via Twitter.
This is not the first time that O'Connor has attempted suicide. She planned one eleven years ago on her 33rd birthday.
