Looks like Sinead O’Connor should have just expressed her condolences and thanked Prince for her biggest hit song. Instead, the singer who had a worldwide hit with a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” written by Prince is now facing a defamation suit from Arsenio Hall.
NY Daily News reports:
Arsenio Hall filed a $5 million lawsuit against Sinead O’Connor Thursday over the Irish songstress’ claim that he was Prince’s drug supplier, according to reports.
Hall filed the defamation suit after O’Connor took to Facebook following Prince’s death to accuse the former talk show host of feeding the megastar pills for decades.
“Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades…. Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s b*****),” O’Connor wrote Monday on Facebook.
