The troubled controversy magnet known as Sinéad O'Connor canceled all of her 2012 tour dates and has revealed why. She has had some serious mental health issues.
She posted details on her website, detailing her bipolar disorder and her split with manager Fachtna O'Ceallaigh, citing those events as reasons for her retreat from the road.
The singer revealed that instead of receiving treatment for her bipolar disorder, it was misread by management. "I was treated as if it was my own fault I wasn't managing and I was responsible for it," she said. "Expectations of me were unreasonable in my opinion and even at times inhumane."
"It is of course accurate to state Fachtna is the best music BUSINESS manager alive," she defended. "However, being a manager involves more than setting up the business end of things in the fantastic way he absolutely did. It involves caring for your client on a personal level and being above all the best friend your client has in the lonely and exploitative world of showbusiness."
O'Connor also wrote: "While it is accurate to state that the business end of matters was set up most excellently, it is also accurate to state that my widely documented and extreme illness of the last nine months, which involved a suicide attempt on January 10, 2012, was not taken into consideration at any stage during recent scheduling of my promo tours or concert tours concerning my most recent album."
