Friends rally round troubled singer Sinead O'Connor after she releases 12-minute video admitting she is suicidal and living out of a motel in the 'a**e end of New Jersey'

Post by HoratioTarr on Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:35 pm


Friends rallied round Sinead O'Connor today after she released a 12-minute video admitting she is suicidal and living out of a motel in the 'a**e end of New Jersey'.
The 50-year-old musician posted the clip on Facebook last week revealing she was all by herself at the $70-a-night Travelodge motel and fighting to stay alive every day.
But a post on her Facebook page today said: 'Hi everybody, I am posting at Sinead's request, to let everyone who loves her know she is safe, and she is not suicidal.
'She is surrounded by love and receiving the best of care. She asked for this to be posted knowing you are concerned for her. I won't respond to any questions, so please understand. I hope this comforts those of you were concerned.'

In the video filmed from the bed of her room in Hackensack, the mother-of-four said: 'I am now living in a Travelodge motel in the a**e end of New Jersey. I'm all by myself.
'And there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist - the sweetest man on earth, who says I'm his hero - and that's about the only f***ing thing keeping me alive at the moment... and that's kind of pathetic.
'I want everyone to know what it's like, that's why I'm making this video.

I read about that earlier. She always seemed a bit full of angst, but I hope she'll get help.

Its sad to see someone so obviously in mental distress.
I think she has always had a troubled life, hopefully she will find peace one day.

She's always had problems. It's very sad to see the decline, and she was always such a pretty girl who made the worst of herself.

It's very sad, but this isn't the first time she's done this. Yes she needs help, but rejects it when offered.

It does seem like attention seeking to a degree, but that could be a cry for help. But she's self destructive, that's for sure, and where are her kids?

Quite. But I think they been down this road with her many a time.

I'm so glad you and HT think similar to me. I hate saying that about someone with mental illness but you can only help someone if they want to help themselves.

HT - I think I read somewhere that her 2 youngest are with their fathers?

You are right it's like a DV situation. You can only help when someone wants to be helped and wants to change things.

Sinead O'connor is 51 years old...

Married and divorced four times;  her career peaked in the 1980s and early '90s,  and she often seems to have been on the skids and sliding downhill, ever since..

More times than not, pushing away those offering a helping hand.

She's used suicide as a weapon to threaten people with. The problem with this is that in the end nobody takes you seriously. Her youngest got taken into care. She accused one of her children of being a chauvinist bully. She's wrongly and very publicly accused people of a variety of falsehoods - she shoots her mouth off without thinking of the consequences - and then wonders why nobody wants anything to do with her. None of her marriages or relationships has lasted. I can imagine she's a nightmare to live with. The fragility and mental health issues, once perhaps so endearing when she was younger, now just makes her look like a batty old woman chucking threats around. Part of me feels sorry for her, but the other part of me suspects that she's done little to help herself over the years.

She got her 13 year old son removed from her care because she threatened suicide. Then she repeatedly went on social media and publicly threatened suicide if she didn't get him back.

I hope those "rallying round her" tell her how stupid she's acting and get her checked into a place where she can get better.

She did an epic album with Massive Attack a few years back... called '100th window'...!

Sinead has a kind heart. She made millions of £££'s with her enormous talent and she gave it ALL away to good causes.

Her distress in that vid is RAW!

A few people like Annie Lennox (another kind soul) have come forward to lend support. Her therapist has been in touch too. Hopefully she'll get the help she begged for.

A reminder of her most famous iconic song and video....she was incredibly impressive.

I find that song a bit dirge-like really, but there's no question that it's a masterpiece.

She was apparently told she was bipolar, but then told she wasn't. Perhaps she is trying to get attention, but there's clearly something wrong if she's living at a motel.

Not unreasonable on this occasion, .......... seeing as it was a tribute to a dead mum?
She actually wept during the song, which is a first afaik - the closest I've seen to anyone crying during a song was  Michael Jackson's voice breaking when he sang 'Ben'.

Maybe some on here think she shouldnt be saying anything about struggling mentally and needing some help... and instead just quietly go away and top herself... like the 'soundgarden' singer, and the other guy did recently...!?

I dont think most people do think that.
The problem is no one can help someone who doesnt want to be helped.....and she has had depressions and episodes since she was young.

I hate the way strangers always question where the people are who should be helping people with really bad ongoing mental illness, where are all the husbands, wives, family, friends?
They have probably tried and failed for years to help.

I read she is in hospital now....hopfully she can be helped.

She obviously needs help, and is asking for help... and it is good that she did ask for help...

Regardless of her method of request for help appearing somewhat bizarre... being a bit mentally unstable can make people act a little bizarre... so you cant blame her for that...


And if she has such a long well known history of troubled times, then even more evidence of how she has obvious ongoing mental issues and should be getting more care...

Yes she should be getting care, but apart from sectioning someone you cant force them to get help if they dont want to accept it.
The problem with some sorts of depression is it has to be controlled...and that can be by taking medication for life.

Yes, it's a good job she did make the video and put it out there. People can't get inside her head, but they can make sure she gets help. I agree with Syl, that drugs might be the best way to go, although it's not clear if she's already taking medication.

All very touching, one problem though. she didn't write it. Prince did and he didn't write it for her.

She said that millions of people feel the way she does, so she does have some insight there. It's not clear what mental illnesses she suffers from, but it appears to be some kind of chronic condition, so the best thing would be for her to try to get in a relatively stable frame of mind, and stop flitting around so she can at least manage it a bit better.

Having other people around, whether they're family or not, is not going to cure her because they're not in her head. Only she can deal with her demons.

She's obviously bipolar and after all her fame, she maybe can't stand not having it anymore.

Like Nicko I turned when she supported IRA.

Yes, I'm sorry to hear that she supported the IRA myself, but I don't like to think of her in such an unhappy position.

Yes, the Irish are quite thick in South Boston and Chicago...even parts of New York City.

She actually wept during the song, which is a first afaik - the closest I've seen to anyone crying during a song was  Michael Jackson's voice breaking when he sang 'Ben'.

All very touching, one problem though. she didn't write it. Prince did and he didn't write it for her.

I see.
In that case I'm pleased he gave her permission to use it cos no one could have done a better cover.

I made another mistake - that wasn't the song where his voice broke - but hey, any excuse to play this lovely tune -
