After Sinéad O’Connor took to Facebook on Monday (2 May) to imply that Comedian and US television presenter Arsenio Hall supplied drugs to Prince – for which Hall is suing – she’s returned for another candid update.
“He can suck my dick,” the ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ singer wrote of Hall. “That is if he isn’t too busy sucking someone else’s dick.”
Yesterday (6 May) it was reported that Hall is suing O’Connor for defamation over comments she posted to more than 600k followers, announcing that Hall was “Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch” and supplied drugs to the late musician Prince.
The recent post begins in all-caps: “REGARDING ARSE-INIO HALL’S LAUGHABLE THREATS” and continues, “I’m more amused than I’ve ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching [Hall] trying to prove me wrong … I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall.”
Read the post in full below:
Prince passed away at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota last month (April 21), aged 57. Although a cause of death has not yet been announced, last week police confirmed that they are looking into the possibility that Prince died from an overdose of prescription drugs.
A representative for Hall denied the accusations made by O’Connor and told New York Daily News in a statement that O’Connor’s remarks were “absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.”
Hall’s lawsuit reportedly calls O’Connor a “desperate attention-seeker” and claims she is “well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts”.
Prince famously wrote ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, the track that O’Connor covered and which propelled her to fame in 1990.
