Sinead O'Connor Under Suicide Watch After Angry Facebook Postings

Irish singer Sinead O'Connor has reportedly been placed on suicide watch after posting angry and rambling messages on Facebook.

"Gardai at Pearce St station have confirmed that singer Sinead O'Connor has been located 'safe and sound' and is getting medical assistance,", an Irish news site, tweeted on Nov. 29.

Earlier that day, O'Connor wrote on Facebook:

There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear.

What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son's girlfriend, his friends...

after everything I've been put through and been forced to go through alone .. And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since Shane became unwell in March,

This week has broken me. The withholding of my babies from me without any sound reason by their fathers, Frank and Donal, and by Jake and the rest of my family, is a horrific set of betrayals. And has been going on since I had my surgery.

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.

O'Connor concluded the post with: "My children don't care if I live [or] die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson. I survived it when John waters did it.. I can't survive Jake doing it."

In another posting, O'Connor wrote: "Jake, Roisin, Jr., frank, Donal, Eimear, I never wanna see you again. You stole my sons from me. Then you had hypocrisy to come to hospital and then not be here when I wake and not pick up phone? I'm s--- to you. You're dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons. ... Murderers. Liars. Hypocrites. All of you. You caused this."
