Sinéad O'Connor Responds to Arsenio Hall's "Laughable" Defamation Suit

Sinéad O'Connor Responds to Arsenio Hall's "Laughable" Defamation Suit
The war of words between Sinéad O'Connor and Arsenio Hall continues. After O'Connor was hit with a defamation suit from the former talk show host for saying he had supplied drugs to the late Prince, the Irish singer has responded with pointed Facebook post on the TV personality's "laughable threats."

As previously reported, O'Connor went online earlier this week suggesting the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency investigate Hall's connection to Prince. She said that Hall had been giving drugs to Prince for "decades," going so far as to label the late-night figure the Purple One's "bitch." Hall then filed a $5 million US lawsuit against O'Connor, branding her a "desperate attention-seeker" known for her "inflammatory Facebook posts."

O'Connor has now hit back with another social media rant, which comes under the title "REGARDING ARSE-INIO HALL'S LAUGHABLE THREATS." Delivered today (May 6) over Facebook, the singer continues to make allegations that Hall had been a drug contact for Prince, who she claims had been addicted to hard drugs for a long time.

"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 said in her latest statement. "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."

If it hadn't already been clear, O'Connor capped the post by confirming her negative stance on Hall.

"I do not like drugs killing musicians," she wrote, "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."

Hall has yet to respond to O'Connor latest statement.

There is an ongoing criminal investigation regarding the April 21 death of Prince, and the DEA are involved. The artist was found dead on his Paisley Park property in Minneapolis. It had been reported that he had been seeking treatment for an addiction to painkillers shortly before his death.
