    Sinéad O’Connor has died aged 56, according to reports.

    According to the Irish Times, the Nothing Compares 2 U singer passed away at the age of 56.

    It is understood at the time of her death the musician was thought to be spending time between Co Roscommon, Ireland and London.

    The Irish singer – who changed her name to Shuhada' Sadaqat in 2018 when she converted to Islam – is survived by her three children.

    However her son Shane died by suicide last year at the age of 17.

    The musician's final post shared a picture of her late son where she shared her heartache over his passing.

    She captioned the touching post: "Been living as undead night creature since. He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul.

    "We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him."

    Born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor in the heart of Dublin on December 8, 1966, the songstress rose to fame in the late 80s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

    She went on to achieve worldwide success in 1990 with her creative cover of Prince's song Nothing Compares 2 U, which fans fell in love with.
