The latest posts come a week after, O'Connor - who is best known for her chart-topping 1990 single "Nothing Compares 2 U" - broke down in tears in a Facebook video as she spoke about feeling isolated as she opened up about her condition. I don't want you to feel like that.

Fiona Apple reached out to Sinead O'Connor following the Irish music icon's raw, emotional cry for help on Facebook. I wish I could be of some use to you. You've given me so much and I wish I could be there. I wish I could - I'm your friend. I'm your friend, that's all I want to say.

In response to an email from Billboard, Garland found the assertion that O'Connor had fired him "objectionable", but stated that the Facebook post made it clear that he was no longer working for her. Sala issued a statement which called O'Connor a fearless and courageous woman who was fighting against the stigma of mental illness.

Sony Set Date for Spider-Man Spin-off 'Silver & Black' and 'Sicario 2'
Unfortunately, they won't have an official new Spider-Man movie to help them, but maybe Venom will work out for them instead. Black Cat is burglar named Felicia Hardy, who briefly appeared in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", played by Felicity Jones.

Shortly after posting the video, O'Connor sent out the address of the Travelodge which is in South Hackensack, New Jersey.

"I want people to see what it's like, mental illness is a bit like drugs, it doesn't give a s-- who you are", she continued.

Now, in a reaction to her worrying admission, Fiona Apple has sent a message to explain how O'Connor has always inspired her: "I want you to know that you are my hero", Apple says. "I've walked this earth alone for two years now as punishment for being mentally f-ing ill and being angry that nobody will f-ing take care of me, specifically for being suicidal". "It's the stigma that's killing people, not the mental f-- illnesses". She also informed Garfield that he'll soon be receiving a cease and desist letter and that her lawyer will be filing a complaint with the Edgewater, N.J. police department on her behalf, regarding Garfield's alleged "fraudulent behaviour, theft of [her] identity, and his facilitation of [her] suicide four times". "Visit them in the hospital, don't dump them in the hospital and bugger off".
