Sinead O'Connor denied on Facebook early Friday that she was considering suicide after Chicago Police said it received a report that the singer had threatend to jump off a bridge.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported
that Chicago Police were still searching for O'Connor after the Facebook post appeared. O'Connor is often remembered for her 1990 hit "Nothing Compares 2 U."
Us Weekly reported
that O'Connor appeared on her Facebook page to support Ireland after British citizens voted to exit from the European Union in the so-called Brexit vote on Thursday.
"Ireland is officially no longer owned by Britain," O'Connor wrote on her Facebook page
. "Congrats to every man, woman, and child who ever died for the cause of Irish freedom, and also to all those including myself, who have been persecuted mercilessly by the Irish so called free-state for having declared support for Sinn Fein and the Republican movement. Our day has come."
She then charged that the report of her suicide attempt was false, noted Us Weekly.
"(Oh and by the way it's bulls*** I jumped off a bridge, some stupid b**** up at Swords Garda station decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all). Am far too f****** happy for that," O'Connor wrote.
Last month, suburban Chicago police reported that O'Connor had been found after she went missing for more than a day, stated the Chicago Tribune
. Wilmette Police had searched for the singer when she went missing early May 15 while going for a ride on a motorized bike.
In November, the entertainer left what appeared to be a rambling suicide note addressing family members and claiming to have taken an overdose of pills.
O'Connor admitted to Oprah Winfrey in 2007 that she tried to kill herself on her 33rd birthday and had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The singer said in 2011, though, that she was misdiagnosed.
