Sinead O’Connor’s 17-year-old son has died two days after he was reported missing, as the heartbroken singer told fans that he had ‘decided to end his earthly struggle’.
The Irish singer, 55, gave a touching tribute to her ‘beautiful’ son Shane, who she shares with her ex, folk singer Donal Lunny, on Twitter as she confirmed the news.
In a devastating tweet, she wrote: ‘My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God.
‘May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace:’
Shane, who went missing on Thursday, was one of Sinead’s four children – Jake Reynolds, Roisin Waters and Yeshua Francis Neil Bonadio.
