Billy Corgan Reveals Truth About Sinead O’Connor


Billy Corgan recently took to his Twitter account and posted a picture of Irish legend Sinead O’ Connor with the caption: “RIP Sinéad O’Connor”

O’Connor passed away at the age of 56 after years of mental health battles, her ‘devastated’ family confirmed via Daily Mail.

The Irish singer gained across the world in 1990 by her heartrending cover of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U. It comes a year after the mother-of-four’s son Shane, 17, took his life in January 2022 after escaping the hospital while on suicide watch. At the time of her death, the musician, who changed her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat in 2018 when she converted to Islam, was thought to be spending her time between Co Roscommon, Ireland, and London.

In her last Tweet, O’Connor posted a photo of Shane and said:

”Been living as undead night creature since. He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.”

The mother-of-four also posted a series of Spotify links to relatively sad and heart breaking songs, including one she dedicated to ‘all mothers of Suicided children’.

In a statement, O’Connor’s family said: ”It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
