What The…?!! Sinead O’Connor Had A Fist Fight With Prince?!!
That’s pretty much what her career has been built off of ever since she shook the music industry up with her Prince penned hit single “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which was released 28 years ago.
O’Connor has stirred up lots of controversy over the years, as a result of standing up for what she believes in- most famously for the time she tore up a photo of the Pope on a live airing of Saturday Night Live in the early 1992.
And now she’s stirring up the pot yet again with this story: Sinead revealed that she and Prince had a scuffle back in the day after she told Prince to “F–k off.” That’s when all hell broke lose! The beloved Prince was 5’2″ and Sinead is 5’4″, so had he been a woman, this would have been a pretty even match from a physical standpoint at least.
Here’s part of what Sinead O’Connnor revealed and you can get the rest of the details in her video below.
“I met him [Prince] a couple times…we didn’t get along that well. In fact, we had a punch up…LOL.
He summoned me to his house after “Nothing Compares 2 U” because I made the record without him. I didn’t know him, I’d never met him and then he summoned me to his house and it’s very foolish to do this with an Irish woman, but he took me to the house and he told me that he didn’t like me saying bad words in my interviews, so I told him to ‘fuck off…”
And like we said, that’s where everything fell apart! Watch the video to see Sinead tell the story of what exactly happened next, with the Purple One.

I know one thing: If that toss-up went down exactly the way Sinead said it did, Prince was probably elated that camera phones didn’t exist back then. Sinead O’Connor seems like the type of woman who would’ve whipped out her phone immediately to record Prince chasing her around that car, while she was spitting on him at the same time. She would’ve put it up on social media faster than you could say “let’s get ready to rumble” and she probably would have quickly shared it with every news outlet around…LOL. That’s just my opinion though…all jokes aside, this is no laughing matter. I just hope Prince and Sinead were able to at least reach a respectful and peaceful space with each other eventually.
