Sinead O’Connor has been hospitalized following the death of her teenage son.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer has been open to her fans on social media as she is dealing with the aftermath of losing her son.
Shane was just 17 when he tragically took his own life.
Sinead, 55, posted on Twitter Thursday night that she thought “Shane’s death was not anyone’s fault but mine”, as she told her followers she was in the hospital after contemplating ending her life.
His tweet last night read: “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that. I’m with the police on my way to the hospital now. I’m sorry I bothered everyone. I’m lost without my baby and I’m on my own.” Hate it. The hospital will help a little while. But I’m going to find Shane. It’s just a delay”
As the Irish Mirror reports, Shane was found dead after going missing on January 7.
This comes as Sinead reveals how Shane had planned his funeral a month before he took his own life.
Before apologizing and retracting her comments, she attacked mental health officials who were charged with caring for her.
Sinead, who changed her name to Shuhada DeWitt in 2018, explained earlier this month how her son tragically took his own life after struggling with his mental health.
She tweeted on Saturday: “My beautiful son, Nevim Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, today decided to end his earthly struggle and is now with God.
“May he live in peace and may no one follow his example. My children. I love you so much. Please be in peace.”
He had been missing since Thursday and the police had started an appeal for help in locating him.
Earlier this week, Sinead shared details of her son’s funeral and said she would comply with his requests.
She said that Shane, as she requested, would only have a Hindu ceremony with her and her father, Donal Looney.
She explained: “Fei. Shen was Hindu. So the funeral would be only for his mother and father. That’s the wish Shen expressed in his suicide note.”
She also told fans where they could send flowers or other items in tribute to her son if they wanted.
She tweeted: “If you’re going to send anything to the Loughlinstown Hospital morgue, please send flowers or Hindu items. Shane O’Connor.”
