O’Connor, 48, previously disclosed that she was bipolar and had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday in 1999. However, in recent years, the Irish native said she had been misdiagnosed and was not bipolar. Earlier this year, she underwent a hysterectomy after suffering from gynaecological problems.
Update: A representative has confirmed O’Connor is “unwell and receiving treatment.”
