Sinead O’Connor is accusing Arsenio Hall of supplying Prince with drugs.
The Irish singer who became famous for her hit “Nothing Compares 2 U”, which Prince wrote, took to her Facebook page to blame the former late-night talk show host in a surprising post.
“Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades…. Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch) Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave,” she wrote.
Hall has reportedly, as expected, denied the accusations, his representatives telling People Magazine that “The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.”
This weekend, 2014 video resurfaced of O’Connor telling the story of an argument she got into with Prince at his house.
“He got quite violent. I actually had to escape out of his house at like 5 o’clock in the morning,” she said. “He really packed a punch. Bigger than mine.”
The DEA is now involved in the investigation into Prince’s death since the revelation that prescription drugs were found near his body.
The DEA’s role will be to determine such things as where the medications came from, and what prescriptions Prince had obtained.
