Sinéad O'Connor Is Going to Rehab for Trauma & Addiction

Sinéad O’Connor is getting help.

The 53-year-old “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer revealed on Twitter that she will be seeking treatment for trauma and addiction.

“I had a very traumatic six years and this year was the end of it but now recovery starts. This year I lost someone beloved and has affected me so badly that I became briefly addicted to a drug other than weed,” she explained.

“I grew up with a lot of trauma and abuse. I then went straight into the music business. And never learned really how to make a normal life. Never took proper time to heal. Wasn’t ready to either,” she added.

Back in 2017, she appeared on Dr. Phil to talk about the sexual, emotional and physical abuse she faced as a child from her mother. She also got candid and revealed she was suicidal around that time.

“If I take this time to heal, I will be fit for a lifetime of touring. If I don’t, I won’t. If you knew the six years I’ve had, [you'd] know what I’m talking about. And I will explain very clearly in 2022,” she shared.

She also revealed she’ll release a “s— kicking album” before she leaves and that her memoir is planned for June of 2021.

“Treatment begins next week so I’ll still be posting here until then. Mostly about what a total twat [Donald] Trump is. And how he’s way too stupid not to be clever. They may as well just have Putin openly in charge of America since he’s been running it for four years anyway.”

We are wishing the best to Sinead in her recovery.

“Why are we alone?” she continues. “People who suffer from mental illness are the most vulnerable people on Earth. You’ve got to take care of us. We’re not like everybody. … I just want to make this video so you all could see what the f–k it’s like. It’s the stigma that’s killing people, not the mental f–king illnesses.”

“If you have a family member that suffers from mental illness, care for them, tenderness, love, care for them,” she adds. “Visit them in the hospital, don’t dump them in the hospital and bugger off.”
