Sinéad O’Connor wrote about heartbreak over son Shane’s suicide in final tweet

Sinéad O’Connor expressed her profound heartbreak over the tragic suicide of her son Shane in her final tweet before her passing on Wednesday.

In response to a tweet from the Inspirational Quotes account asking people to describe their life using emojis, the late Irish musician shared 10 crying faces along with the hashtag “lostmy17yrOldSonToSuicidein2022” last week.

“Been living as an undead night creature since,” O’Connor wrote in the emotional tweet on July 17. “He was the love of my life, the light of my soul. We were two halves of one soul. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally.”

She concluded, “I am lost in the bardo without him.”

Fans of the artist had expressed concerns for O’Connor’s mental health over the years. She shared a cryptic post about overdosing in 2015 and was reported missing the following year.

But in 2016, she denied that she had attempted suicide, claiming on social media that she was “far too too f–king happy” for that.

She is survived by her three kids: son Jake, 36, daughter Roisin, 27, and son Yeshua, 16.
