Another drama seems to be brewing around Sinead O’Connor, who last fall posted an apparent suicide note on Facebook. The 49-year-old Irish singer has gone missing in Chicago following a bike ride on Sunday (May 15) in the suburb of Wilmette. Police confirmed the news to People. A report by TMZ has the bike ride timed around 1 p.m., and the site goes on to add that police have her classified as “missing suicidal.” People states O’Connor was last seen at 6 a.m. on Sunday.

UPDATE: Wilmette Police told the BBC that O’Connor has been located, after earlier saying they were “seeking to check the well-being” of the 49-year-old.

The singer has had tense relationships with her family members over the years. On Friday, she posted the below on Facebook to her 12-year-old son Shane. Note that Tusla is the Irish child services organization.

Yesterday, at 9:12 a.m., she posted the following note to her other son Jake Reynolds, 28, on Facebook.

O’Connor recently made headlines for alleging that onetime talk show host Arsenio Hall was a drug dealer for Prince, who died on April 21. Hall is now suing O’Connor for libel to the tune of $5 million.

O’Connor topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990 with her cover of the Prince-penned ballad “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
