Arsenio Hall Sues Sinéad O’Connor for $5 Million Over Prince and Drug Accusations

 Sinead O’Connor, whose biggest hit, the 1990 ballad “Nothing Compares 2 U,” was written by Prince, recently took to Facebook to make accusations against actor and comedian Arsenio Hall, the singer accused him of supplying Prince with drugs and of “spiking” her “years ago” at his Coming to America co-star Eddie Murphy’s house.

Today, Hall’s attorney filed a $5 million libel lawsuit against O’Connor at a Los Angeles court.

“Desperate, attention-seeker Sinéad O’Connor has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies about comedian Arsenio Hall,” the documents state. “The malicious statements made by O’Connor are absolutely false and O’Connor’s heinous accusations that Hall engaged in this criminal conduct are despicable, fabricated lies.”
