(London) Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor, who died in July at the age of 56, died of “natural causes”, according to the conclusions of the judicial inquest made public on Tuesday in London.
The singer, who became a global star with her hit Nothing Compares 2 U in 1990, was found unresponsive by police on July 26 at her home in southeast London.
In a statement, the court in Southwark, south London, in charge of the investigation into her death, “confirms that Ms O’Connor died of natural causes”.
After the singer’s death, police said her death was “not considered suspicious.”
His death sparked an avalanche of tributes in Ireland and around the world.
She was buried in south Dublin, following a funeral procession along the seafront in Bray, a small town south of Dublin where she lived for 15 years.
In addition to her music, the singer was known for her fight against sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, which she accused of not having sufficiently protected children. In particular, in 1992, she tore up an image of Pope John Paul II on television in the United States, a scene whose images went around the world.
In recent years, Sinéad O’Connor has spoken out on social media, threatening her former associates with legal action, describing her physical and mental health problems, sharing her suicidal thoughts and her complicated relationships with her family.
According to her agents, before her death she was finishing a new album, preparing a tour and was planning to bring to the screen her autobiography, Rememberings, released in 2021.
