Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O' Connor has been located — on her Facebook page.

The singer resurfaced online to dispel the rumor that she was suicidal and threatening to throw herself off a bridge.

"Oh and by the way it's bullshit I jumped off a bridge," she wrote on Facebook, adding "some stupid bitch 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—ing happy for that!" she continued.

On Thursday police spokesman officer Thomas Sweeney said Irish authorities reported O'Connor contacted her family, saying she was suicidal.

Sweeney said officers spotted someone threatening to jump from a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it turned out to be a 54-year-old man.

He was taken to a hospital. O'Connor — who hadn't posted since June 5 — additionally went on a rant about Britain's decision to exit the European Union, a move she says is a victory for Ireland.
