Sinead O'Connor has sparked concern for her welfare after tweeting about having suicidal thoughts.

The Irish singer took to her feed Twitter.com/howryeh and apparently fantasised about taking her own life, saying she wishes to "go to heaven".

She wrote: "Had to go to the psychiatrist for routine renew prescription etc. She says I'm a bad mum and mental for talking so openly about sex in public. All this shit we’re not allowed to say. Including suicidal feelings, sex etc. U just get treated like a crazy person."

O ‘Connor continued:

I want to go to heaven SO bad. Have for years. But I don’t wanna abandon my kids. But if I cud die without them knowing I did it myself I wud.



The singer has four children aged between four and 24. However, she appeared to ask her followers how she could take her own life: "Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself. Now I fucking wish suicide wud kill me."

Last month she wrote on her blog about she was left feeling suicidal after “rude, patronising, insulting and disrespectful” questions asked of her by a male researcher on Ireland's The Late Late Show.

After pulling out of the appearance, she wrote: "It is sickening to have it suggested by anyone that I am 'insane' for talking openly about sex. The researcher said to me that since I suffer from depression do I not think it's insane behaviour to be talking publicly about sex. I will never as long as I live, consider appearing on The Late Late Show again.

"And I might add that no apology or act of respect has been issued by either the presenter of the show, nor any one in a leading position on the show. I am tired of all this 'Sinead is crazy' crap. It's a disgrace. It has caused me enormous pain in my life as an artist and has many times led me to consider ending my life.

"Thankfully I have four beautiful reasons not to. Those are my precious children. But no woman should have to walk around feeling like someone has driven a tree through her heart. I can honestly say that is how I felt since my conversation with the Late Late researcher."
