Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead O’Connor For $5M For Claiming He Was Prince’s Drug Dealer

Sinead O’Connor recently accused Arsenio Hall of fueling his good friend Prince’s drug habit, which led to the artist’s death. According to TMZ, Hall has responded to the tune of a $5 million defamation lawsuit. The funnyman’s lawyers, Marty Singer and Lynda Goldman, filed a suit this morning in which the comedian calls O’Connor a “desperate attention-seeker” for posting a rant on Facebook earlier this week. She called Prince a “longtime hard drug user” and referred to Hall as “Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch.”

The former late-night host also denies ever supplying Prince with illegal drugs in the lawsuit and adds he hasn’t had contact with O’Connor for 25 years. He also dismisses her claim of spiking her with drugs in the past. Hall furthermore claims that he witnessed O’Connor tell Prince she “detested him” and told the singer to “go fuck himself.” This one may get ugly…
