Sinead O'Connor Says She is Suicidal in Facebook Video Filmed in Motel Room

Sinead O’Connor has posted a distressed video on her Facebook claiming she is suicidal and asking her family to get in touch with her.

The 50-year-old “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer shared the clip just before the weekend from a Travelodge in South Hackensack, N.J., where she has apparently been living, though NorthJersey.com reported on Monday that there was no record of her staying at the motel.

“Suddenly, all the people who are supposed to be loving you or taking care of you treat you like s–t,” Sinead says in the video. “If it was me, I’d be gone, straight away back to my mom.”

“Why are we alone?” she continues. “People who suffer from mental illness are the most vulnerable people on Earth. You’ve got to take care of us. We’re not like everybody. … I just want to make this video so you all could see what the f–k it’s like. It’s the stigma that’s killing people, not the mental f–king illnesses.”

“If you have a family member that suffers from mental illness, care for them, tenderness, love, care for them,” she adds. “Visit them in the hospital, don’t dump them in the hospital and bugger off.”

Sinead was reported missing by her son Jake Reynolds back in May 2016. She was later found safe at a hotel and brought to the hospital.

Watch Sinead‘s full video below.

We hope Sinead is able to get in touch with her family. If you or someone you love is suffering from mental illness or suicidal thoughts, call or chat with the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

    I’m afraid she will succeed one day leaving her children behind.

  • Danae

    I think it is exactly her children who treat her like an annoying, recurring problem. She desperately longs for help and support from her relatives she cannot get.

  • Torii Wehling

    It is hard for a family to.step.and support when someone won’t take their meds and runs away all.the time. Sad situation

  • Priscila

    I am sure she feels abandoned by her family and, at this point, might even be true.

    However, I must point out that having a family member suffering from mental illness her whole life also has an effect on the other members.

    You can notice that every time she is down, she lashes out ; Sinead is constantly blaming her family for not supporting her, but we do not know the whole story.

    My mother in law has been diagnsed since she was in her late teens; she is 71 years old now. She expects me an my husband to drop anything and go to her. How many times she called my husband to tell him how ungrateful, how wrong and how mean he is. He was 15 years old when he found her after she attempted to kill herself. It took me years to get him to talk about his childhood.

    When I got pregnant, she went ballistic; she said I was trying to “harm” the baby and she told me point black that i was to listen to her and do as she was telling me because of her illness.

    The first thing you have to do when dealing with such a proble is to establish limits; any therapist says so. Perhaps Sinead has crossed those limits many times and her family decided enough was enough.

    It could also be like she said; we will never know, but it her family might also be suffering because of it.

  • Effy

    I absolutely agree. There is only so much a family can help.

  • Michael Lambretti

    I feel bad for her. She’s clearly mentally ill.

  • alex

    c’mon Sinead ,don’t lose your fight against your disease:everyone that loves your musics,they are with you…..I’m with you, please forgot it the worst period of your life and start a new life with the really people who’s loves very much!
