ILOSM fam’ remember when “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, Sinead O’Connor took to social media to go clean OFF on Arsenio Hall, soon after Prince’s death on April 21, 2016? If not, let us refresh your memory: Sinead said- and I quote- “Two words for the DEA investigating where Prince got his drugs over the decades…Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch.”

The accusations Sinead O’Connor posted on social media on May 2, 2016, targeting Arsenio Hall

Long story short, Arsenio called her claims “absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd” and immediately filed a $5 million dollar lawsuit against her.

Well, now I guess after seeing that Arsenio has not let up on his promise to sue the brakes off of her, Sinead has just come back 10 months later to backtrack for lying on him. According to TMZ, Sinead and Arsenio released a joint statement saying “Sinead has retracted and apologized for statements she made about Arsenio last year, which prompted his defamation lawsuit against her.” And then came Sinead’s official apology. Check it out below…

“I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince’s drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince’s death. I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally.”

Here’s the best news for Sinead though, Arsenio Hall is now DROPPING his $5 million lawsuit against her, since she’s apologized and admitted she was lying. Woah! She got off that time.

TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE?

I really dig Sinead O’Connor as an artist, but I gotta be real…it took her TEN MONTHS to apologize for her lie?!! Arsenio’s a good man for dropping his lawsuit so late in the game, because that was defamation at it’s finest. So uh…in the words of Deniece Williams and Johnny Mathis’ song: “Too much, too little, too late to ever try again,” would have been the response most folks would have given Sinead for that day late, dollar short apology…just saying. Take us out Deniece and Johnny…
