Sinead O’Connor has assured fans she is safe, after posting a concerning tweet over the weekend.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer sparked worries over her mental health and safety, after she expressed suicidal thoughts in a tweet shared on Sunday.
The 53-year-old has since returned to Twitter, saying that she ‘lost the plot’.
Sinead tweeted: ‘I’m sorry I lost the plot at the weekend. Am Full on crazy b****.
‘Good news is next years shows are all happening after all of Covid permits [sic].’
Fans and followers were glad to hear Sinead was safe, with one person replying: ‘Don’t be sorry, hope you’re feeling well.’
Others expressed their excitement for the upcoming concerts, which were rearranged after Sinead entered a one-year treatment programme.
The Irish star confirmed earlier this month that she was entering rehab, and had initially said that her 2021 dates would be pushed until 2020.
Sinead tweeted: ‘Message for folks who have tickets for next year’s shows: those shows are being postponed until 2022 so that I may go into a one year trauma and addiction treatment program because 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. I have been addicted to weed for 34 years. A lifetime.
‘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.’
Sinead added that one of her children had been unwell, although now is ‘thrving’ and wrote: ‘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, your know what I’m talking about. And I will explain very clearly in 2022.
‘Music business is a very unforgiving place for artists who need to postpone due to emotional or mental health issues.’
As well as going back on the road, Sinead is planning to release a new album and publish her memoirs next June.
Sinead, who released her latest single Trouble Of The World in October, is set to perform next year in Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as dates across the United States.
