Sinead O’Connor Apologizes For Claiming Arsenio Hall Was Prince’s Drug Dealer

In the wake of Prince’s death last year, Sinead O’Connor went on a long Facebook rant accusing Arsenio Hall of fueling the Purple One’s drug habit. Shortly thereafter, Hall filed a $5 million defamation suit, and now O’Connor has retracted her claims and issued an apology. “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,” she tells TMZ. “I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally.” Representatives for Hall say that he will file to dismiss his lawsuit.
