So much for resting in peace.
The death of pop star Prince has indirectly resulted in one celebrity lawsuit.
Former talk show host Arsenio Hall has filed suit against star Sinead O’Connor after the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer alleged Hall provided Prince with drugs and spiked her with narcotics “over the decades.”
“Desperate, attention seeker Sinead O’Connor has maliciously published outlandish defamatory lies about comedian Arsenio Hall, falsely accusing him of supplying illegal ‘hard drugs’ ‘over the decades’ to the recently deceased music artist, Prince, and of spiking her with drugs once years ago,” the lawsuit read according to CNN.
Hall is seeking damages “not less than” $5 million.
“Two words for the DEA investigating where Prince got his drugs over the decades … Arsenio Hall. Anyone imagining Prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land,” O’Connor wrote in the now deleted Facebook post that brought the suit.
“Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sheriff’s office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave,” she wrote.
Hall has vehemently denied the allegations and claimed he hasn’t seen O’Connor in 25 years, CNN reported.
“Hall will not stand idly by while O’Connor attempts to get attention for herself by recklessly spreading malicious, vile lies that he engaged in egregious criminal conduct which falsely links Hall to Prince’s death,” Hall’s lawsuit read.
On Friday, Hall tweeted a video of himself discussing what he knew about Prince’s death on Access Hollywood.
