    Singer Sinead O’Connor has announced that she has cancelled her upcoming tour dates to enter a ‘one-year programme for trauma and addiction’ starting next week.

    Sinead admitted she has been ‘addicted to weed for 34 years’ but ‘became briefly addicted’ to another drug following her loss.

    She will be postponing her performances, with the exception of her dates in Ireland, until 2022. 

    Sinead uses two Twitter accounts, one managing her professional business with an official blue tick and another under her Islamic moniker Shuhanda Sadaqat, which she used to make the announcement. 

    Apologising to her fans in a heartfelt statement, she penned: ‘Message for folks who have tickets for next year’s shows: those shows are being postponed until 2022 so that I may go into a one year trauma and addiction treatment program because I had a very traumatic six years and this year was the end of it but now recovery starts.’

    She continued: ‘This year I lost someone beloved and has affected me so badly that I became briefly addicted to a drug other than weed. 

    ‘I have been addicted to weed for 34 years. A lifetime.

    ‘I grew up with a lot of trauma and abuse. I then went straight into the music business. And never learned really how to make a normal life.

    The Nothing Compares 2 U hitmaker then pleaded with her fans to be ‘supportive’ and keep hold of their tickets for 2022, when she vowed to return with a new album.

    But she also added that her four shows in Ireland will not be cancelled ‘unless Covid prevents them’ as she does not need to leave the ‘country or rehab to do those’. 

    She wrote: ‘I would ask you please to be supportive and understanding and to hold onto your tickets for 2022 because I will be back with a new album and tour.

    ‘I truly apologise to anyone this causes inconvenience to.’

    She penned: ‘Treatment begins next week so I’ll still be posting here until then. Mostly about what a total t**t Trump is. And how he’s way too stupid not to be clever.

    ‘They may as well just have Putin openly in charge of America since he’s been running it for four years anyway.’

    The musician assured her fans that her memoir is still being released next year as she had originally planned and will be promoting her new venture online.
