Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead O’Connor Over Prince Drug Claims

Arsenio Hall is suing Sinead O’Connor over her claims that Hall supplied drugs to Prince, whose death is under a DEA investigation. The suit, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, accuses O’Connor of defaming Hall and seeks $5 million in damages.

On Monday, O’Connor wrote on her Facebook page that the former talk show host had supplied drugs to Prince “over the decades.”

“Anyone imagining prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land,” O’Connor wrote. “Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s office. Expect their call.”

Hall’s attorneys accuse O’Connor of making up lies about him in a bid for attention. According to the suit, Hall has had “minimal” contact with O’Connor and has not seen her in 25 years. The lawsuit notes that the Facebook post was picked up by gossip sites and racked up more than 5,000 likes, 3,000 shares and 2,400 comments.

“This is extraordinarily damaging to Hall’s reputation,” the suit states.

In the suit, Hall’s attorneys also denied O’Connor’s claim that he “spiked” her “years ago.”
