In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, Grammy Award-winning singer Sinéad O’Connor opens up about her life, including what she claims was an abusive childhood. O’Connor claims she was physically and sexually abused by her mother until age 13, when she ran away from home. She says she and her mom reconciled a year later, but the relationship grew tense once again when the singer confronted her mother about the abuse. O’Connor’s mom died when she was 16-and-a-half, leaving the singer “devastated.”
