This is interesting: singer Sinead O'Connor claimed in a Facebook post that Arsenio Hall, the former talk show host and friend of Prince, gave the late rock singer drugs that resulted in his death. Hall is, of course, denying it. Whether or not it's true, it will make you feel vaguely uneasy.
The post reads:
Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades.... Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch) Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I've reported you to the Carver County Sherrif's office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy's house. You best get tidying your man cave.
"The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd," a representative of Hall's told People.
Prince famously wrote O'Connor's hit song "Nothing Compares 2 U." In the years since, O'Connor's at-times unstable behavior has been linked to a diagnosis of PTSD because of her childhood abuse, and has publicly struggled with suicidal actions, including threatening an overdose. These are serious allegations, however, reminiscent of Jon Lovitz's grudge against Andy Dick (whom he accuses of giving cocaine to Phil Hartman's wife before her murder-suicide). Stay tuned for further, hopefully-not-more-depressing developments.
