It's been confirmed that Sinead O'Connor is "safe and sound" after sharing a distressing Facebook post last night (Sunday 29th November) saying she'd taken an overdose.

"The last two nights finished me off," she wrote. "I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name.

The heartrending note continued:

"I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don’t value me at all."

A representative for O'Connor, 48, reports she is "unwell and receiving treatment" currently.
