Arsenio Hall sues Sinéad O’Connor for $5m over drug claims

Actor and talk show host Arsenio Hall is suing Sinéad O'Connor for libel after the singer's recently accused him of being Prince's drug dealer for years and for spiking her marijuana at Eddie Murphy's house.
She made the accusation after news spread that there may have been a possibility that painkillers or hard drugs may have had a cause in the sudden death of Prince who died recently.
She took to her Facebook page on May2nd to make the accusation. See after the cut

O'Connor said she reported Hall to the Carver County Sheriff's office. "Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie Murphy's house."

She said this incident allegedly happened in 1991.
Then on May 3rd, she took to her Facebook page to elaborate on the whole incident.
She said Hall had invited her to a party at Murphy's home on the night of the Grammy Awards. O'Connor chose to not attend the ceremony, which she claims made Hall act maliciously towards her.
"In his unfathomable narcissism, he has deduced that my not attending is specifically an act against him, and all that he holds dear," she wrote.
"This is like, the second time we've hung out." Her tense description of their night — which presumably took place in 1991 since she states that her winning of a Grammy Award further provoked Hall — ended with O'Connor alleging that Hall had offered her laced marijuana and "actually did stick his tongue in my mouth too." Hall's complaint, which was filed in Los Angeles on May 5th, calls O'Connor a "desperate attention-seeker" and calls her story "outlandish defamatory lies."
She wrote a very long and detailed post about the whole incident on her Facebook page.

However, Hall has denied all of O'Connor's claims and said O'Connor has a history of "bizarre, unhinged internet rants."

Hall also goes into detail on the contentious relationship he believes O'Connor had with Prince, alleging they had a "feud" and once engaged in " a violent fistfight" with the late singer where O'Connor "spat on him repeatedly after she told Prince 'to go f**k himself.'"

Hall is suing for $5 million in compensatory damages.
