Sinead O'Connor posted a very disturbing message on her verified Facebook account on Sunday. The troubled singer claimed she had "taken an overdose" and was in an unknown hotel room under an assumed name.

“This week has broken me,” Sinead O'Connor wrote.

“The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name.”

Fortunately, less than two hours after the post was made, Irish police reported they had found Sinead O'Connor, and that she was "safe and sound."

Sinead O'Connor is battling many demons right now. She is in the midst of a custody battle with her youngest son's father. The singer underwent a hysterectomy in August.

O’Connor said her family doesn’t deem her valuable, adding, “They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t f–king informing them now.”

“Well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot,” she wrote.

This isn't the first time Sinead O'Connor has written questionable posts on Facebook, nor is it her first suicide attempt. She told Oprah Winfrey back in 2007 that she had bipolar disorder and that she attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday.

Sinead O'Connor is 48. Hopefully someone is seeing to it that the troubled singer gets the help she so obviously needs so that a third attempt never takes place.
