Chicago police are searching for singer Sinéad O’Connor after they received a call from police in Ireland who said her family alerted them to the singer’s intent to kill herself.
TMZ published audio of the police dispatch that put officers on high alert for the singer who rose to fame with a cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” in 1990.
“I’m on a bridge in Chicago, and I’m ready to jump,” O’Connor reportedly told her family.
The news of O’Connor’s latest possible suicide attempt comes one month after the singer was reported missing by her family after failing to return home from a bike ride.
“O’Connor reportedly left the Wilmette area for a bicycle ride yesterday at 6:00am and has not returned. A caller has expressed concern for her well-being and no other information is available at this time,” the Wilmette,Illinois Police Department said at the time.
O’Connor was later found at a nearby hotel.
In November 2015, O’Connor sparked suicide fears in her fans after posting a series of cryptic Facebook messages that appeared to indicate she was ready to end her own life.
“Music is over for me. Music did this. Rendered me invisible even unto my children,” O’Connor wrote on Facebook.
“Murdered my soul. Im never going back to music.”
