Sinéad O’Connor told her kids what to do if she was found dead

SineadoconnorIrish singer-songwriter, Shuhada’ Sadaqat, known professionally as Sinéad O’Connor, died on Wednesday at age 56 in London. She instructed her children years ago about what to do if she suddenly passed away. O’Connor felt it was important to educate her children on protecting her music and assets so their inheritance isn’t taken advantage of. 

“I’ve always instructed my children since they were very small, ‘If your mother drops dead tomorrow before you call 911, call my accountant and make sure the record companies don’t start releasing my records and not telling you where the money is,'” O’Connor said in 2021 interview, citing that Tupac released more albums dead than alive.

O’Connor became a worldwide sensation in 1990 with her version of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” and was later mired in controversy after a 1992 appearance on Saturday Night Live where she tore up a picture of Pope John Paul II in protest of corruption in the Catholic church.
