U.S. comedian Arsenio Hall is suing singer Sinead O’Connor for defamation.
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.
“Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sheriff’s office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave.”
Hall has denied the “heinous accusations” in the lawsuit, calling O’Connor’s statement “despicable, fabricated lies.”
