“I want you to know that you are my hero as well,” Apple said. “I just saw the video of you and I don’t want you to feel like that. I don’t want you to feel like that. You’ve given so much. And I wish I could be there. I wish I could be of some use to you… I’m your friend, that’s all I want to say, and you’re my hero.”
On the same YouTube account, Apple posted a video of O’Connor’s performance at the 1989 Grammy Awards.
On August 3rd, O’Connor posted a troubling 12-minute video, recorded in a New Jersey motel room, to social media.
“There’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero – and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment … And that’s kind of pathetic,” the singer, who was briefly “missing suicidal” in 2016, said in the video.
A recently-posted note on O’Connor’s Facebook assured fans that she was “safe, and she is not suicidal.”
