In a Facebook post in late April, the singer has accused Arsenio Hall of being Prince’s drug dealer.

“Two words for the DEA investigating where prince got his drugs over the decades…. Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s b—h),” wrote O’Connor. “Anyone imagining Prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’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.”

The next day, O’Connor followed up her accusations by revealing that Hall allegedly spiked her marijuana.
