Sinead O'Connor was found Monday after an apparent disappearance, but all isn't well. The singer wrote a seething, expletive-filled Facebook post Monday night accusing family members of casting her aside as she struggles with a suicidal condition, the New York Daily News reports. "You all abandoned me FOR BEING SUICIDAL," writes the 49-year-old. "YOU LEFT ME TO DIE." In the 653-word post directed at first husband John Reynolds, she slams him, their 28-year-old son Jake Reynolds, and her own father for being bullies. "Every one of you had better pray I die," she adds. "Because I'm suing the [expletive] lot of you for what you've done to me if I manage to live through it."

She's posted on Facebook about this ongoing family dispute before, USA Today reports. On May 7 the "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer wrote on Facebook about wanting Jake to help out her third-youngest child of four kids, 12-year-old Shane Lunny, who ended up in Irish foster care when she was struggling to recover from a hysterectomy. "Jake, take custody of Shane," she writes in the latest post. "I will send you money." But she goes on to say that "none of you will ever see me again because of what you've done" and blames them for her "total psychological and emotional destruction." (She left a suicidal Facebook note last year.)
