Earlier this week, O’Connor accused Arsenio Hall of being Prince’s supplier. “Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades…. Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s b*tch),” she wrote in a Facebook post which has since been deleted.
She also accused the late-night host and comedian of drugging her in the past. “Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s [sic] office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave.”
Representatives for Hall quickly refuted O’Connor’s claims, calling them “absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd.” Now, it’s been revealed that Hall is filing a $5 million lawsuit against the singer.
As TMZ notes, in the suit Hall denies all of O’Connor’s accusations. He also describes her as “well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts.”
Update — Friday, May 6th at 4:14 p.m. CT: O’Connor has responded to Hall’s suit in a new Facebook post this afternoon (which has since been deleted). Among other things, she tells the late-night host to “suck my dick”:
“I’m more amused than I’ve ever dreamed a person could be and look forward very much to how hilarious it will be watching him trying to prove me wrong. I’m also very happy to notice that the DEA have taken me seriously enough to be thoroughly questioning all of Prince’s friends and aides from the last thirty years as to his KNOWN history of hard drug use and where he obtained his drugs. I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my dick. That is if he isn’t too busy sucking someone else’s dick. : )”
For what it’s worth, O’Connor last made headlines after posting a suicide note to her Facebook page.
DEA officials are looking into a drug overdose as a possible cause of death for Prince. Earlier this week, it was revealed that the iconic singer was scheduled to meet with an addiction doctor just one day prior to his passing.
