Sinead O' Connor Receiving Medical Treatment Following Worrying Facebook Status

Police rushed to Sinead O' Connor's hotel room after a worrying Facebook status suggested she had taken an overdose last night.

The post in question detailed a "horrific set of betrayals" relating to family matters and stated that she had "taken an overdose".

Police have since confirmed that Sinead was found safe and is receiving treatment, having been on suicide watch at a hospital for the past three weeks.

In the post, she wrote:

"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."

"If I wasn't posting this, my kids and family wouldn't even find out. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they'd never have known."

Earlier this year, the Nothing Compares 2 u singer cancelled numerous performances due to a "life threatening medical condition".

In another post on Saturday, the 48-year-old wrote that she was quitting the music industry for good, saying: "Music is over for me. Music did this. Rendered me invisible even unto my children. Murdered my soul. I'm never going back to music."
