Sinead O’Connor told comedian and talk show host Arsenio Hall to “suck my d**ck”, after news reports surfaced that he planned to sue her for claiming he was Prince’s drug pusher “for decades”.

Hall on Thursday filed a $5 million libel suit against the Irish singer, who alleged on Facebook that he provided drugs for decades to the late pop icon, and had “spiked” her joint at Eddie Murphy’s house.

O'Connor wrote: “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.

“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.

“I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my d**k. That is if he isn't too busy sucking someone else's d**k.”

In her intial Facebook post, O'Connor - whose best-known song, 'Nothing Compares 2 U', was written by Prince - said she had reported Hall to the sheriff's department in the Minneapolis suburbs that is investigating Prince's sudden April 21 death.

“Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy's house. You best get tidying your man cave,” she wrote in one of two Facebook posts.

Hall, best known as host of a popular US late-night show in the early 1990s and as Murphy's co-star in the 1988 movie “Coming to America,” called the accusations “despicable, fabricated lies” and labelled O'Connor a “desperate attention-seeker.”

“O'Connor is now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged rants as for her music,” said a lawsuit by Hall's lawyers filed in a Los Angeles court.

In the lawsuit, Hall said he has had little contact with O'Connor and questioned her knowledge of Prince's life, noting that she has admitted a tense relationship with the 'Purple Rain' star.

Investigators have not released a cause of death for Prince but an expert in treating addiction to painkillers had been asked to rush to his Paisley Park estate shortly before the singer was found unconscious.
