Sinead O'Connor posts powerful message of support in wake of Keith Flint’s death

SINEAD O’CONNOR posted a powerful message of support to any musicians battling mental health issues in the wake of Keith Flint’s sad passing.

The Prodigy frontman was found dead at his Essex home on March 4th with bandmate Liam Howlett later confirming Flint had taken his own life.

O’Connor, who goes by the name Shuhada Sadaqat‏ or since converting to Islam, was among those to pay tribute to Flint, who was just 49 at the time of his death.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer tweeted: “Very sad to hear about Keith Flint. #PleaseNoMoreRocknRollSuicides

The Glenageary vocalist also paused to reflect on the alarming spate of musicians struggling to see a way past mental health problems like depression.

Lamenting the many men and women lost to such conditions, O’Connor even referenced her old collaborator Prince, who died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl.

“How come musicians live so lonely and die so lonely. Even poor Prince. Something is very wrong,” she tweeted.

“Musicians out there, please go to hospital if you are in difficulty. Even if you feel no one loves you. Someone does.”

It’s an issue close the 52-year-old’s heart.

O’Connor suffers from depression as well as bipolar disorder and has previously admitted to feeling suicidal thoughts.

She’s fought back against those feelings though and has sought to remove much of the stigma surrounding mental illness in society today.
