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

The singer “Nothing Compares 2 U” told fans Thursday night that she was going to the hospital to receive help after sharing in a series of disturbing Twitter messages that she was planning to take her own life.

“I have decided to follow my son. There is no point in living without him. Everything I touch, I destroy. I was left alone for him. And now he is gone,” she wrote on an unverified Twitter account linked to their official account.

O’Connor – who has been open in the past about her own mental struggles and suicidal thoughts – went on to say that 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 to her for her alarming messages and reassuring fans that she was seeking medical attention.

“I’m sorry. I should not have said that. I’m on my way to the hospital now with police. I’m sorry I hurt everyone,” she posted, adding: “I am lost without my children and I hate myself. “Hospital will help for a while. But I’ll find Shane. This is just a delay.”

O’Connor’s representatives declined to comment 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, decided today to end his earthly struggle and is now with God,” she wrote. “With him resting in peace and no one following his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace.”
