>>O'Connor Apologizes To Arsenio Hall 

(Undated)  --  Sinead O'Connor is apologizing to Arsenio Hall.  The singer accused Hall of supplying Prince with drugs last April shortly after he died.  Hall denied the accusations and filed a five-million dollar defamation suit.  Now, O'Connor is retracting her statements saying, "I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince's drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince's death. I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally." Hall's reps say he will file to dismiss the lawsuit.
