Sinead O'Connor Responds to Arsenio Hall's Defamation Lawsuit
The $5 million lawsuit, which Hall filed Thursday, says O'Connor is a "desperate, attention-seeker ... now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged internet rants as for her music."
Sinead O'Connor is "amused" by Arsenio Hall's $5 million defamation lawsuit that he brought against the Irish musician in response to her accusing him in a Facebook post of being the one to supply Prince with drugs.
A day following Hall's complaint that he filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, in which he says O'Connor is a "desperate, attention-seeker ... now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged internet rants as for her music," she took to Facebook to address the recent lawsuit.
"REGARDING ARSE-INIO HALL'S LAUGHABLE THREATS," O'Connor wrote in all capital letters on Friday afternoon to begin the post.
"I'm more amused than I've ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching him trying to prove me wrong," she penned. "'I'm also very happy to notice that the DEA have taken me seriously enough to be thoroughly questioning all of Prince's friends and aides from the last thirty years as to his KNOWN history of hard drug use and where he obtained his drugs."
She concluded the post by stating that she simply dislikes Hall: "I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my dick. That is if he isn't too busy sucking someone else's dick. : )"
The drama began when O'Connor wrote in a Facebook post a week following Prince's death that the late musician was a "long time hard drug user" that "got his drugs over the decades" from Hall.
