Miley Cyrus Lawsuit? Sinead O'Connor Threatens Legal Action Over Twitter Fight

A Miley Cyrus lawsuit might be served by Sinead O'Connor over their recent Twitter fight.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Miley Cyrus reacted poorly to Sinead O'Connor's open letter on the internet.

Sinead O'Connor is an Irish singer who received worldwide success in the 1990's after doing a cover for Prince's song "Nothing Compare 2 U." Miley Cyrus openly said her Wrecking Ball video was inspired by Sinead O'Connor's work, which caused the singer to reach out.

Sinead O'Connor said she was "concerned" that people had led Miley Cyrus to believe "that it is in any way 'cool' to be naked and licking sledgehammers." Sinead O'Connor claimed Miley Cyrus was being "pimped" by the music industry. She was afraid Miley Cyrus would end up like the "many female artists who have based their image around their sexuality" and find themselves in a "proverbial rag heap" when they're middle aged.

The recent Miley Cyrus documentary by MTV also show that Cyrus believes she is in control and is using the nudity and the weird actions to stoke the flames of her popularity. Sinead O'Connor disagrees, saying, ""They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it's what YOU wanted and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted."

In response, Miley Cyrus lashed out on Twitter, dredging up old 201 Twitter tweets from Sinead O'Connor when she suffered a mental breakdown based upon her bipolar disorder. Miley Cyrus compared Sinead O'Connor to Amanda Bynes, who is currently in rehab despite making "great strides."

But a Miley Cyrus lawsuit wasn't the first response to this personal attack. Sinead O'Connor first responded again with an open letter, saying Miley Cyrus was "behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help. It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry."

Miley Cyrus responded by saying Sinead O'Connor should meet her face to face. That's when the Miley Cyrus lawsuit was threatened. Sinead O'Connor says Miley Cyrus must apologize for abusing those suffering mental health problems or she'll "have no choice but to bring legal proceedings against you since it is extremely hard to be given work when people think one is suffering from mental illness.... [If] you do not apologize for having deliberately tried to cause me hurt and trouble personally and professionally I will have to bring pressure upon you." O'Connor demands Miley Cyrus take down the tweets, which used to be part of O'Connor's deleted Twitter account, or that Cyrus will "hear from my lawyers."

So far there's been no word on whether a Miley Cyrus lawsuit has been served. Do you think Sinead O'Connor's legal action is appropriate at this point?
