Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead O' Connor over Prince Drug Allegations!
After singer/songwriter Sinead O'Connor came out saying that Arsenio Hall had been supplying Prince with drugs for years, Arsenio Hall is suing her for defamation. The suit, filed in Los Angeles on Thursday, is seeking damages of "not less than" $5 million.
"Desperate, attention seeker Sinead O'Connor has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies about comedian Arsenio Hall, falsely accusing him of supplying illegal 'hard drugs' 'over the decades' to the recently deceased music artist, Prince, and of spiking her with drugs once years ago," the lawsuit says.
On Monday, O'Connor, who is no stranger to controversy, accused Hall of supplying Prince with drugs. "Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades ... Arsenio Hall. Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land," O'Connor wrote in a post that has since been deleted.
Hall has denied the "heinous accusations" in the lawsuit, calling O'Connor's statement "despicable, fabricated lies."
