Sinéad O’Connor’s cause of death revealed

Sinéad O’Connor’s cause of death has been revealed.

“This is to confirm that Ms. O’Connor died of natural causes,” a spokesman for Southwark Coroner’s Court in London announced Tuesday.

“The coroner has therefore ceased their involvement in her death.”

The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer died in July 2023, just days after canceling all her music gigs to take care of “her own health” following the death of her 17-year-old son, Shane, by suicide.

She was 56.

Shortly after O’Connor’s untimely death, police announced that the famed performer had been found “unresponsive” at an apartment in London.

O’Connor was “pronounced dead at the scene,” but her death was “not being treated as suspicious” as there was no foul play suspected, the Metropolitan Police shared at the time.

Her family also released a statement at the time, saying, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad.

“Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Before her death, O’Connor tweeted that she had been “lost” ever since her son Shane (seen here) died by suicide.

O’Connor, who became just as known for her controversial political actions as she was her music, said a week before her death that she had been feeling “lost” since Shane’s suicide.

“Been living as undead night creature since,” she emotionally tweeted.

“He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally.”

The “This Is the Day” singer concluded, “I am lost in the bardo without him.”

O’Connor made her last public appearance in March 2023 at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize, where she looked happy and healthy as she accepted the award for Best Irish Classic Album.

The trophy was given in honor of 1990’s “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got.”

O’Connor, whose funeral was held last August in her native Ireland, is survived by her three other children: son Jake, 36, daughter Roisin, 27, and son Yeshua, 17.
