Sinéad O’Connor accuses manager of identity theft in new rant

Embattled singer Sinéad O’Connor slammed her former manager Bruce Garfield as an identity thief and suggested he could see jail time for a series of offenses in her latest alarming Facebook post.

“What sick part of your head failed to hear that you are being prosecuted and sent to jail by me, for forgery and for facilitating my suicide four times as well as failing to act to save my life. ?” O’Connor wrote toward the beginning of the lengthy new post, which she shared Thursday evening.

She then urged Garfield to stop attempting to contact her or her friends, and condemned him for allegedly taking her keys “illegally” from an employee at her apartment building and sending them to her.

“GET OUT OF MY LIFE. LEAVE MY FRIENDS ALONE. STOP STEALING MY PROPERTY. STAY OUT OF MY APARTMENT,” O’Connor wrote in all-caps.

The fuming message came several hours after O’Connor wrote in an earlier Facebook status that someone had been logging into her account and posting things from the Bronx while she’s in New Jersey.

Garfield, meanwhile, called it “objectionable” that he’d been fired by O’Connor in an email to Billboard, but confirmed he’s no longer employed by her.

“I am no longer managing Sinéad,” he wrote to the music outlet. “I think her Facebook post speaks for itself.”

The latest posts come a week after, O’Connor — who is best known for her chart-topping 1990 single “Nothing Compares 2 U” —  broke down in tears in a Facebook video as she spoke about feeling isolated as she opened up about her condition.

“I’m all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero, and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment … and that’s kind of pathetic,” the singer said from a New Jersey hotel room.

“I want people to see what it’s like, mental illness is a bit like drugs, it doesn’t give a s— who you are,” she continued.

A subsequent post was shared to her Facebook page days later assuring that the Irish singer is safe and not suicidal.

She wrote in her latest post Thursday that she’s “only available by phone at the hospital.”
