"Gonna be off radar for few weeks. But will be back. Worry not," the "Nothing Compares 2U" singer tweeted. "I'm going to hospital. Treatment for depression."

O'Connor added that she is "Not at all well. But they will put me back together quick."

Last week, O'Connor publicly regretted marrying Herridge Dec. 8 in Las Vegas for the "enormous damage" it inflicted on "my innocent flower of a husband . . . I became very ill as a result of what was done to my husband…and became depressed."
