SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) – Sinead O’Connor has emotionally pleaded for help and opened up about her struggles with mental illness in a rambling Facebook video.
The 50-year-old Irish singer says in the video posted Thursday that she was staying alive for the sake of others and if it were up to her, she’d “be gone.”READ MORE: Cowboys Lead Saints 20-10 In 4th Quarter

Robert Kaiser says officers conducted a welfare check, but O’Connor wasn’t in her room at the time.
