Sinead O’Connor dies at 56

No cause of death has been announced.

O’Connor’s family said of her death Wednesday, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Earlier this month, O’Connor started a new Twitter account under the name, “Sinead Marie-Bernarde Aoibheann O’Connor,” frequently sharing heartbreaking posts about the loss of her 17-year-old son Shane to suicide last year.

In one, she wrote, “Been living as undead night creature since. He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.”

On the same day, she posted a Tibetan compassion mantra “for all mothers of Suicided children.”

After her son’s death, she was admitted to a hospital after posting on Twitter, in part, “Everything I touch, I ruin. I only stayed for him. And now he’s gone.”

She also performed the theme song for season seven, the current season, of the Starz show, “Outlander.”

Often outspoken, she may be best known for ripping a photo of Pope John Paul II during a 1992 appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”
