Sinead O'Connor, the troubled Irish singer, posted an explicit video online, saying she was living in a New Jersey motel and was suicidal. Police making a welfare check on her said she was gone.

In the 12-minute video, O'Connor said she'd "be gone" if it wasn't for the few people in her life she claimed she's remaining alive for, Fox News said.

"I'm all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero, and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment… and that’s kind of pathetic," O'Connor said as tears rolled down her face.

O'Connor said she was currently suffering from three mental illnesses and had been for some time.

Hollywood Life said O'Connor was diagnosed with bipolar disorder more than 10 years ago.

"I want everyone to know what it’s like, that’s why I’m making this video. Mental illness, it’s like drugs, it doesn’t give a s*** who you are, and equally what’s worse, it’s the stigma, it doesn’t give a s*** who you are," she said, according to Hollywood Life. "Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s***. It’s like a witch hunt.”

O'Connor entitled the Facebook video, "#Oneofmillions," considering the fact that there are millions of people in the world today suffering from mental issues.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer has two kids, who are currently living in Ireland.

In the video, O'Connor calls out the fathers of her children, arguing that they should be sending the kids to come get their mother, especially given everything she's done for all of them financially over the years.

"I’ve walked this earth alone for two years now as punishment for being mentally f****** ill and getting angry that no one would f****** take care of me,” she said. “I’m a 5’4′ little f****** woman wandering the world for two years by myself.”

O'Connor's viral video has since garnered about 847,000 views.

Although O'Connor said Thursday that she was living in a motel "in the arse end of New Jersey," South Hackensack Police Capt. Robert Kaiser said the singer was nowhere to be found when officers went to the motel to conduct a welfare check, Fox News noted.

Kaiser later said O'Connor was no longer staying at the motel and her whereabouts were unknown.

However, a Facebook post on Monday implied that O'Connor was okay, despite the message not coming directly from her.
