Irish singer Sinead O’Connor resurfaced this morning after a report circulated that she had threatened to jump off a bridge in Chicago. She disputed the report and indicated that she’s alive and well, Rolling Stone reports.
O’Connor mentioned Thursday’s suicide rumors in an expletive-laced Facebook post today where she also commented on Britain’s “Brexit” vote. The singer said in the post that the latest police investigation was the result of “false and malicious gossip.”
She also celebrated the possibility that the vote by Britain to leave the European Union might help create an independent Ireland.
The often controversial O’Connor added in her Facebook post: “Oh and by the way it’s bullshit I jumped off a bridge, some stupid bitch up at Swords Garda station decided she’d like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all.”
Swords Garda is a police station in Dublin.
Rolling Stone adds: “O’Connor’s emotional wellbeing, as well as an ongoing rift with close family members, has become headline fodder in recent months as the singer continues to air her personal problems on public forums like Facebook.”
