Sinead O’Connor has alleged that she was involved in an altercation with late musical icon prince in the 90s.
In an interview on Good Morning Britain today, she said:
“We met once but we didn’t get on very well, we tried to beat each other up.‘We didn’t get on too well.”

“Well it was more that he was trying to beat me up and I was defending myself. It was a very frightening experience.”
“He summoned me to his house in Los Angeles one night and I foolishly went along not knowing where I was.”
The Nothing Compares To You singer claims that Prince took issue with the fact that she swore in interviews, and allegedly attacked her after she explained that she would not stop swearing as it was part of her Irish colloquialisms.
“He went upstairs and got a pillow and had something hard in the pillow and he was chasing me,” she alleged.
“I ran out of his house and he came after me in his car, we met on the highway in Malibu at 5am, he was going around in his car and I was spitting at him and he was trying to hit me.”
Prince died in 2016 aged 57 of a suspected accidental overdose.
