That escalated quickly! Sinead O’Connor is being sued for $5 million dollars by Arsenio Hall! The musician recently posted a message to her Facebook accusing the star of supplying drugs to musician Prince before his untimely death on April 21 and he’s not happy about it!
Looks like Sinead O’Connor, 49, may have messed with the wrong man. Arsenio Hall, 60, just slapped the musician with a $5 million defamation lawsuit for allegations she made accusing the comedian of providing drugs to Prince before his untimely death on April 21. Well, Arsenio is not going down without a fight — or some spending money!
Be careful what you write on the internet, because it could cost you $5 Million in damages. A lesson that Sinead is learning the hard way. Arsenio denies any and all claims that he ever provided illegal drugs to Prince. In fact, he hasn’t even had contact with Sinead in over 25 years.

Apparently she has got it out for the star and is trying to take him down. The 80’s host thinks she is a “desperate attention-seeker,” according to legal papers acquired by TMZ. He is also not down for her dragging his name through the mud in an attempted to get back at Prince, whom she apparently “detested,” according to Arsenio.
He had lots more where that came from, “[she is] well-known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts,” the comedian continued. As if the world wasn’t already very aware of this fact. Tell us how you really feel, Arsenio!
Sinead has been in the middle of many a controversy in her time, and this surely won’t be the last. If she keeps this up, she’s going to have to start touring a lot more to pay her legal fees! I guess that’s the upside of the whole situation, maybe we’ll get some new Sinead music!
Do you think Sinead deserves to be sued, HollywoodLifers? Is Arsenio overreacting? Tell us below!
