UPDATE: Sinead O’Connor has resurfaced safely and has said on her personal Facebook “it’s bullsh*t I jumped off a bridge…a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all.”
Last month, we reported that Sinead O’Connor went missing and was considered suicidal. Wilmette, IL Police found the Irish singer and then considered her not endangered. Now, she has gone missing again, this time in Chicago. According to The Chicago Tribune O’Connor called police in Dublin and said that she was going to jump off a bridge in Chicago. Authorities in Dublin contacted the Chicago PD and said that the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer told them that she was suicidal and to keep an eye out on all bridges in the Chicagoland area. Chicago PD issued an “all call” this evening and so far they have been unable to locate the artist.
The past couple of years have not been great for O’Connor. Earlier this year, she went on a bizarre Facebook rant about how Arsenio Hall was responsible for Prince’s death, and in 2015 she took to Facebook to write what appeared to have been a suicide note. She also gained attention the police’s attention in 2011 for a series of suicidal sounding tweets. O’Connor has been outspoken about her struggles with Bipolar Disorder, appearing on Oprah almost a decade ago to discuss her mental health.
O’Connor has a history with outbursts. She is still widely known for her infamous appearance on Saturday Night Live back in 1992 when she ripped up a picture of Pope John Paul II, which resulted in a permanent ban from the show.
