Singer Sinead O'Connor has reportedly been hospitalized days after announcing the death of her 17-year-old son.

O'Connor said on Twitter she was being taken to a hospital after she posted concerning messages about the loss of her son, Shane. "I am with cops now on way to hospital," she said. "I'm sorry I upset everyone. I am lost without my kid and I hate myself. Hospital will help a while. But I'm going to find Shane. This is just a delay." She had previously alarmed fans by tweeting that she "decided to follow my son" because "there is no point living without him," and "I only stayed for him."
