Sinéad O’Connor’s most recent social media post provided fans with insight into her mental challenges since her son Shane committed himself at the age of 17 in 2022.

O’Connor, who died on Wednesday at the age of 56, said on July 17 from a now-deleted Twitter account she founded, “Been living as undead night creature since.” He was my life’s love, the light of my soul. We were two parts of one soul. He was the only person who ever truly loved me. Without him, I’m lost in the bardo.”

The Irish musician announced his death in a series of tweets at the time.

“Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, chose to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God.” May he rest in peace and that no one follows in his footsteps. My child. I adore you to pieces. “Peace, please,” she wrote.

On July 8, O’Connor posted a video of her residence, referring to the emotional toll her son’s death had taken on her.

“I look like s— either way, which is why I didn’t want to make a video… but you know, the way your kid unfortunately passing away, it isn’t good for one’s body, or soul to be fair,” she stated in the video, according to TMZ.
