Bringing together two names that you thought would remain separate forever, comedian Arsenio Hall is suing Sinead O’Connor for $5 million for defamation after the musician accused Hall of supplying Prince with drugs and spiking her “years ago at Eddie murphy’s house.”
His lawyers, Marty Singer and Lynda Goldman, filed the suit Thursday morning, in which Arsenio calls Sinead a “desperate attention-seeker” for posting an incendiary rant on Facebook earlier this week. She called Prince a “longtime hard drug user” who got his supply from “Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch).”
In the suit, Arsenio flat out denies ever supplying Prince with illegal drugs — and adds, he hasn’t had contact with Sinead for 25 years. He also denies spiking her with drugs back in the day ... as she claimed.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to retire because I will never again write a better headline. Goodbye!
On the subject of Prince, a source told The Minneapolis Star Tribune that Percocet was found in his body upon his death, BUT “it is not yet clear whether the potent opioid caused or contributed to the musician’s death.”
