Sinead O’Connor’s Cause Of Death Revealed
On July 26, 2023, Irish singer Sinead O’Connor was found dead. The police did not suspect foul play but took their time investigating her death. She was only 56 years old and planned an upcoming international tour in 2024 and 2025.
The day she died, her family announced the sad news of her death in a statement. They shared, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
Now, almost six months after her death, FOX News Digital has received confirmation from the Southwark Coroners Court about her official cause of death. According to John Thompson, a clerk at the court, her cause of death is simply “natural causes.” Since her death was determined to be natural, “the coroner has therefore ceased their involvement in her death.” Thompson did not provide any other details related to what may have caused O’Conner’s death.
O’Conner had four children, three sons and a daughter. One of her sons, Shane, died in 2022. She is survived by her other two sons, Jake and Yeshua, and her daughter Robin.
O’Conner’s biggest hits were in the 1990s. Among her most famous songs is “Nothing Compares 2 U,” written by Prince and is on her album “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got.”
She is also remembered for being outspoken. For example, in 1992, when she was a musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” she performed the Bob Marley song “War.” Afterwards, she ripped up a picture of Pope John Paul II while looking at the camera and saying, “Fight the real enemy.” That stunt got her banned from “Saturday Night Live” for life.
At the time, and in response to her actions on the live comedy show, the vice president of NBC said, “It goes without saying that the network does not condone what Ms. O’Connor did. Whatever her motivations, they were of a personal nature and certainly did not reflect the opinion of the network or the ‘SNL’ staff. We would never authorize anything like that.”
