Scoop: Sinead O’Connor rages at her family on social media

Things really are not going well for Sinead O’Connor.

On Monday, she posted a vitriolic diatribe on Facebook, TMZ reports, trashing her children, the fathers of her children and her sister, saying: “I’m s— to you. You’re dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons.”

The comments came a day after a post Sunday morning that appeared to be a suicide note directed to those same family members.

O’Connor claimed in that message to have taken an overdose of pills, but she was later found “safe and sound” in Dublin and apparently was getting medical attention.

According to People, O’Connor, 48, reportedly has been struggling with her health and fighting with exes Donal Lunny and Frank Bonadio to see her youngest children: Shane Lunny, 11, and Yeshua Bonadio, 8. (O’Connor is also mom to Jake Reynolds, 28, and Roisin Waters, 19.)

This doesn’t represent the first time the “Nothing Compares 2 U’ singer has taken to social media to share distressing posts. In 2011, an alleged string of suicidal Tweets prompted authorities to visit her home.


NOT JUST ANY CALENDAR GIRLS

The Italian tire company Pirelli’s annual calendar typically showcases artfully lit nude supermodels, but it offers something different for 2016.

Photography superstar Annie Leibovitz took portraits of women of various sizes, ages and ethnicities who were selected for their “professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishment.”

Subjects include Yoko Ono, wearing a top hat, tuxedo jacket and fishnets; Patti Smith in jeans, boots and a snarl and commentator Fran Lebowitz smoking a cigarette in a man’s pinstriped jacket. Also pictured: blogger Tavi Gevinson, actress Yao Chen, artist Shirin Neshat, investment banker Mellody Hobson, “Selma” director Ava DuVernay and art collector Agnes Gund.

Perhaps the most buzz-worthy shots are of comedian Amy Schumer and tennis champ Serena Williams — in their undies (and no tops).
