Shortly after Prince died in April 2016, Irish singer O'Connor claimed that Hall had given drugs to the singer.
Sinead O’Connor has publicly apologised to comedian Arsenio Hall this week, for claiming last year that he had given drugs to the late singer Prince and insinuating that he had had something to do with his death.
Taking to her official Facebook page on Wednesday (February 22nd), the 50 year old singer retracted her accusations and wrote: “I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio Hall 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,” her brief post continued.

The 58 year-old's return to hosting his own talk show lasted for only one season as CBS Television Distribution have decided to pull the plug.

Prince's latest appearance left fans with a new track and assorted strangeness.
Prince has been on point with his cameos lately. Last month it was New Girl and on Wednesday, Prince dropped by The Arsenio Hall Show to get up close and personal, quite literally. Besides performing three songs - his new single FunkNRoll, She's Always in My Hair and Mutiny – and sitting down for a chat with Hall, he also went into the audience to take questions from fans, who had been lining up for hours for the chance. It was all very, well, it was very purple. But also, fans got to learn a whole lot more about the artist formerly known as the Artist, Formerly Known As Prince.
For instance, did you know that his pet peeve is strangers touching his hair? "I was at an Oscars party," he said, "and people kept bumping into me. And it always seems to be dudes."
Arsenio Hall asks his viewers to contact NBC on his behalf because they neglected to mention him in their segment about Jimmy Fallon debuting as the host of "The Tonight Show."
Arsenio Hall was upset recently after being overlooked on a list of late night talk show hosts by NBC News Anchor Brian Williams. During Arsenio's show he stated his displeasure at being snubbed by the news reported and urged television viewers to contact the newsroom and complain.
Brian Williams went on television Wednesday and apologized to Arsenio for not including him among his list of late night television hosts. The amends initiated by Williams to Arsenio included some jokes as he poked fun of other mishaps the network has made over the years.

The 'Gravity' actress became emotional on Jay's penultimate show.
Sandra Bullock has expressed her sincere gratitude towards Jay Leno for his long-standing support over the years, even when she may not have necessarily deserved it. The outgoing host of The Tonight Show welcomed the Gravity actress for the penultimate episode of his talkshow before comedian Jimmy Fallon takes over hosting responsibilities.
"When I saw you in Wrestling Earnest Hemingway, I looked at you the way I looks at my wife for the first time," Leno said. "You just popped and I went 'Oh my God, this person's going to be a big star' and it all came true," the sweet host added. Then it was Bullock's opportunity to say nice things in return, which came from the heart if her tears of emotion were anything to judge by.

A 'Coming to America' sequel? Will it ever happen?
Murphy dropped by Hall's late-night talk show on Tuesday night and discussed the milestone anniversary, in which the host played Akeem's sidekick Semmi.

NCIS is about to return for its 11th season, but it will be Cote de Pablo's last.
Cote de Pablo's NCIS exit doesn't really concern Mark Harmon. In fact, the top-dog isn't even breaking a sweat, despite commentators labelling the transitional period a bit of a crisis for the CBS crime-drama.
De Pablo's exit came after her eight seasons on the popular show, though it still took CBS bosses - including Les Moonves - by surprise.
Speaking to Latina magazine about her departure, the actress said: "It was not an easy decision, not one taken lightly. I feel like I am leaving my family," she says in the September issue, on newsstands August 13.What I want to say most of all is thank you to the fans and to the people who have been so supportive of me and of the show, who have made the show the great success that it is."

Arsenio Hall is being taken to court over child support payments for his five-year-old son, as he thinks he should pay based on his current income, not his 12 million USD per year from his peak.
American comedian, actor and talk-show host, Arsenio Hall, is being sued by his former personal manager, Cheryl Bonacci, for paternity and child support money. A source spoke to television news show 'Celebrity Justice' to tell them that the 'Coming To America' star has never denied that he is the father of Bonacci's five-year-old son, but is not agreeing on how much money is should be paying for child support.
Hall, a former boyfriend of Paula Abdul, was one of America's most prolific and highest grossing entertainers in his day, with paycheques of around 12 million USD each year at his peak. However, Hall now states that child support should be based upon the amount he currently earns - rather than what he used to earn.
