Sinead O'Connor declares she's happy after police fear she's suicidal

Sinead O'Connor says she's fine after Chicago police advised officers to be on the lookout for Irish singer-songwriter after receiving a report she threatened to jump from a bridge.

As part of a ranting Facebook message, O'Connor wrote early Friday: "Oh and by the way it's bulls--t I jumped off a bridge, some stupid b--ch up at Swords Garda station decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all."

O'Connor added that she's happy.

Police spokesman Officer Thomas Sweeney said Thursday there wasn't an active police search for O'Connor, however Irish authorities reported O'Connor contacted her family, saying she was suicidal.

Sweeney said officers spotted someone threatening to jump from a bridge over a Chicago expressway, but it turned out to be a 54-year-old man. He was taken to a hospital.

Last month, suburban Chicago police put out a well-being check for O'Connor after she reportedly went on a bike ride Sunday morning and didn't return. She was later found safe at a hotel.

Her representatives didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
