Sinead O’Connor has reassured fans of her wellbeing after saying she was ‘starving’ and unable to obtain food. 

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer made a desperate plea on social media this week, revealing that she was struggling to find food with her agoraphobia preventing her from leaving the house. 

However she’s now provided a positive update and tweeted on Thursday: ‘All good now : ) found meal delivery service : ) Am replete and happy : ).’ 

A rep for Sinead also told Metro.co.uk: ‘Sinéad was happy and very well this afternoon when we spoke.’

Sinead, 53, had taken to one of her Twitter accounts – under her Islamic name Shuhanda Sadaqat – the previous day to cry out for help.

The musician explained: ‘Ok here goes a reach out. I’ve been secretly living with a physically paralysing, trauma related case of acute low self-esteem for the last few years and months and weeks and am lately not eating…

‘[It’s] because it’s made me so agoraphobic I can’t go to the shops. And I’m starving. I currently live in a very remote part of the country so take outs, and or grocery deliveries are not an option…’ 

She continued: ‘That’s why i Have clearly asked ONLY if anyone knows of meal services for people with mental health conditions who’s ability to self-care is diminished. I’d eat the f**kin’ leg of the Lamb of God.’ 

Earlier this year, Sinead opened up about her mental health issues after she posted a concerning video from a hotel room, saying that she was suicidal, in 2017. 

Speaking to RTE’s Tommy Tiernan, the singer explained in February: ‘I don’t suffer any longer, that’s all in the past, thanks be to God. At the time, the desire I had was to stay alive, and that’s why I was figuring, by any means necessary. 

‘For me, there was a lot of loneliness and publicly reaching out but there was also a lot desperation, I was dying, I really was, so I was grasping anything that might keep me alive.

‘I was going to end up dead if I didn’t reach out and I didn’t grab for life. I was very lonesome, as a lot of people can conditions can be. I was a bit lonesome but I was seriously in danger of dying.’

Last month, Sinead was busy with work and filmed the music video for her new single in Peckham. The track will go towards Black Lives Matter related organisations

545 immigrant children seized at the border cannot find their missing parents

There are now 545 children who cannot find their families after separated in ICE interment camps at the US Southern border (Photo: AP) A total of 545 immigrant children who were seized at the US Southern border with Mexico are now no longer able to find their parents, lawyers say. The children were separated from their families between 2017 to 2018, and now the US federal government cannot reunite the children with their mothers and fathers, court documents said. About 60 of the children were 5-years-old or younger when they were separated, the documents said. Under the Trump administration’s order in June 2018, children were taken from their parents at the door and put in ‘cages’ under what was called a ‘zero tolerance policy.’ Many human rights organizations began investigating the practice, leading to a subsequent federal court order to reunify those families. Nan Schivone is legal director of Justice in Motion, a group that is leading efforts to find the missing parents. ..
