After posting a series of disturbing Facebook messages on Sunday (Nov. 29), including one in which she threatened to have “taken an overdose,” Sinéad O’Connor has posted another message damning her family members for being “murderers” and “hypocrites.”

O’Connor alleges that her family members—including Donal Lunny, the father of her youngest son, Shane—have prevented the singer-songwriter from seeing her children, and that she has not not been able to reach them since receiving medical assistance on Sunday. Read the full message below:

“Jake, Roisin, Jr., frank, Donal, Eimear, I never wanna see you again. You stole my sons from me. Then you had hypocrisy to come to hospital and then not be here when I wake and not pick up phone? I'm shit to you. You're dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons. You left me alone for twelve weeks! Why did I have to hear it was your hypocritical asses here while I was unconscious?? And now you're Gone and not picking up phone? You are child stealing murderers, I never want to see or hear from any of you again. Why were you here when you're the ones who put me here???? And where the fuck are you now??? Murderers. Liars. Hypocrites. All of you. You caused this.”

On Sunday, O’Connor’s unsettling threats led to the singer receiving medical care.  A representative for the singer said at the time that she is “unwell and receiving treatment.”
