Sinéad O’Connor has been reduced to living out of a motel room “in the arse end of New Jersey’’ — desperately struggling to stay alive as she battles mental illness, she admitted in a disturbing Facebook video.
“I’m all by myself, and there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on Earth, who says I’m his hero, and that’s about the f- -king only thing keeping me alive at the moment, that I’m his bloody hero. . . . And that’s kind of pathetic,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer rambled in a video posted to her account Thursday.
Sitting on a messy motel bed with cheap artwork of the New York City skyline behind her, the 50-year-old Irish songstress admitted, “I’m fighting and fighting and fighting . . . to stay alive every day.

Married four times, the singer griped about the custody battles she has had with her exes.
And she said she had been hospitalized for kidney stones recently.
Gifted with a haunting voice, O’Connor broke into the international spotlight with her version of the Prince tune “Nothing Compares 2 U’’ in 1990.
She later shaved her head to protest the treatment of women, famously ripped up a picture of Pope John Paul II on “Saturday Night Live” in 1992 and was ordained a priest by a splinter Catholic group.
A woman who told The Post that she has been staying at the Travelodge with her boyfriend for the past month said O’Connor had been at the motel for more than a week.
The woman said that when she first spotted the singer, she told her boyfriend, “That…
