Arsenio Hall is suing Sinead O’Connor for a Facebook post where she says he supplied Prince with drugs.

In a complaint filed on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Hall rips into O’Connor as a “desperate, attention-seeker … now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged internet rants as for her music.”

O’Connor’s biggest hit was “Nothing Compares 2 U,” a cover version of a Prince composition released in 1990. About a week after Prince died in Minneapolis, O’Connor wrote that Prince was a “long time hard drug user” who “got his drugs over the decades” from Hall.

The television personality says that’s absolutely false, and that O’Connor is hardly in any position to know anyhow, having acknowledged that she only met Prince “a couple of times.” Hall also states through the lawsuit that he hasn’t had any contact with O’Connor in 25 years and that her accusation of criminal conduct is “extraordinarily damaging” to his reputation.
