Sinead O'Connor has taken to Facebook to assure her fans she's fine and well following a police call made by one of family members stating she was threatening to kill herself.
The 'Nothing Compares To You' hitmaker logged on to the social networking site on Friday, following the manhunt that ensued when the person in Ireland contacted authorities in Dublin to say they feared for her wellbeing in Chicago and a call was made to the Chicago Police Department (CPD), sparking a search for her.
The post reads: "(By the way it's bulls**t I jumped off a bridge, some stupid b***h up at Swords Garda station decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all). AM FAR TOO F***** G HAPPY FOR THAT!! (sic)"
Concern for Sinead's health and a manhunt was sparked when her relatives allegedly told them she planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.
An alert on the CPD scanner said: "The word from the Ireland police sergeant Claire Mulligan, Dublin, Ireland, is saying that at 1530 hours Sinead O'Connor called and said, 'I'm on a bridge in Chicago and I'm going to jump.' "
