Sinéad O'Connor Shared Emotional Post About Late Son Shane Days Before Death

Just days before her death, Sinead O’Connor shared an emotional tweet about losing her 17-year-old son, Shane, to suicide.

Sinead tweeted in a July 17th tweet, “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.”

O’Connor shared the news of his death at the time in a series of tweets.

“My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God. May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace,” she wrote.

On July 8, O’Connor shared a clip of her apartment, referencing the toll her son’s death had taken on her.

“I look like s— either way, which is why I didn’t want to make a video … but you know, the way your kid unfortunately passing away, it isn’t good for one’s body, or soul to be fair,” she said in the video per TMZ.

O’Connor said that she had returned to London and was working on an album. She also told followers that she would be “hopefully touring” in 2024 and 2025.

“Hi All, recently moved back to London after 23 years absence. Very happy to be home : ) Soon finishing my album. Release early next year : ) Hopefully Touring Australia and New Zealand toward end 2024. Europe, USA and other territories beginning early 2025 : ) #TheBitchIsBack,” she wrote.

O’Connor is survived by three of her four children—including Jake, Roisin, and Yeshua.
