Sinead O'Connor is being sued for five million dollars over Prince claims

Earlier this week, we reported that Sinead O'Connor had posted an incendiary message to her Facebook page claiming that American entertainer Arsenio Hall had supplied Prince with hard drugs 'over the decades'.

She also accused the comedian and talk-show host of spiking her drink at Eddie Murphy's house, and that she had reported this incident to the authorities.

Representatives for Hall denied these accusations, and yesterday announced that they would take legal action against the Nothing Compares 2 U singer. The lawsuit, for $5 million, was filed on May 5.

According to CNN, the lawsuit reads "Desperate, attention seeker Sinead O'Connor has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies about comedian Arsenio Hall, falsely accusing him of supplying illegal 'hard drugs' 'over the decades' to the recently deceased music artist, Prince, and of spiking her with drugs once years ago."

"Hall will not stand idly by while O'Connor attempts to get attention for herself by recklessly spreading malicious, vile lies that he engaged in egregious criminal conduct which falsely links Hall to Prince's death."

Hall further claims that he fell out of contact with O'Connor roughly 25 years ago.
