Sinead O’Connor hospitalized days after teenage son’s death

The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer told fans on Thursday night she was on her way to the hospital to get help after sharing in a series of disturbing Twitter posts that she was planning to kill herself.

“I’ve decided to follow my son. There’s no point in living without him. Everything I touch, I ruin. I was left alone for him. And now he’s gone,” she wrote on an unverified Twitter account that was linked to her official account.

O’Connor – who has been open about her own mental struggles and suicidal thoughts in the past – went on to say she felt “lost” and blamed herself for the death of her teenage son.

The mother of four followed the thread an hour later by apologizing for her alarming posts and reassuring fans that she was seeking medical attention.

“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that. I’m with the police now on my way to the hospital. I’m sorry I upset everyone,” she wrote, adding: “I’m lost without my child and I hate myself. The hospital will help for a while. But I’m going to find Shane. This is just a delay.”

Representatives for O’Connor declined to comment on the matter to CNN.

Shane O’Connor’s body was discovered on January 7, two days after he went missing, the singer’s management company confirmed to CNN on Saturday.

O’Connor announced his death on Twitter, saying her “beautiful” son “decided to end his earthly struggle”.

“Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, has decided today to end his earthly struggle and is now with God,” she wrote. May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace.’
