Sinead O’Connor was hospitalized just days after her son’s tragic death.
The singer confirmed that she was rushed to the hospital after being “lost” without her son Shane.
Shane O’Connor, 17, was found dead after disappearing from Tallaght Hospital in Dublin on Thursday.
Last night, his mom posted a tragic message online, causing concern among fans after admitting she wanted to “find Shane.”
Sinead, 55, said: “Sorry. I shouldn’t have said this. Now I’m with the police, going to the hospital.
“I’m sorry I upset everyone. I’m lost without my baby and I hate myself. The hospital will help for a while. But I’m going to find Shane. It’s just a delay.”
A devastated Sinead confirmed the teen had died and described him as “the light of my life.”
The Nothing Compares 2 U singer shared her grief after identifying his body, saying, “Now I have officially identified the remains of my son Shane.
“Now I’m going to retire to mourn my son.”
She also threatened the hospital with legal action after Shane went missing two days before his death.
The singer said Tallaght Hospital in Dublin “refused to take any responsibility” for Shane’s disappearance.
She also said, “May God forgive the Irish state, for I will never do that.”
The hospital said in a statement: “The HSE cannot comment on individual cases where it could lead to the disclosure of information relating to identifiable individuals, which is in violation of the ethical requirement that we abide by our duty of confidentiality.”
Mum-of-four Sinead confirmed Shane’s tragic passing by paying tribute to him on social media.
She wrote: “My beautiful son, Neviim Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, today decided to end his earthly struggle and now with God.
“May he rest in peace, and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be calm:”
She later tweeted a Bob Marley song that she dedicated to Shane: “This is for my Shane. Light of my life. The lamp of my soul. My blue-eyed child.
“You will always be my light. We’ll always be together. No border will separate us.”
‘LIGHT OF MY LIFE’
Sinead also encouraged fans to send flowers in memory of her son if they so desired.
Police had previously filed an appeal against the missing teenager, along with a photograph.
In the security camera image, he is wearing dark jeans, a black sweatshirt with a colorful symbol on the front, a dark red top and white sneakers.
But a spokesman for Gardai confirmed that the search was “halted” after the discovery of the body.
A spokesman said: “Following the discovery of a body in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, January 7, 2022, a missing persons appeal for 17-year-old Shane O’Connor was dismissed.”
A spokesperson for Sinead O’Connor stated: “Unfortunately, we can confirm the death of Shane O’Connor.
“We kindly ask for respect and appreciation for Sinead, Shane’s father and Shane’s family at this most difficult time.”
