Sinead O’Connor is now receiving medical treatment after posting a troubling suicide note to Facebook on Sunday morning.
O’Connor, 48, wrote that she felt her family, including her husband, her children and her son’s friends and girlfriend, had committed “horrific betrayals” against her.
“There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty,” O’Connor wrote.
O’Connor stated that she was in a hotel somewhere in Ireland, under a different name and that she had taken an overdose.
She continued on to say that her family’s behavior toward her changed in August after she received a hysterectomy. She claimed that her family had no interest in her well-being.
“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 sh-t 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 f**k myself. I’m invisible,” O’Connor wrote.
O’Connor also noted how she felt her fame and popularity were much different from how she felt her family treated her.
“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 f**king informing them now,” O’Conn0r wrote.
Irish media reported that O’Connor was “found safe and sound” and was receiving medical treatment.
