Dolores tried taking her life by OD’ing back in 2013, saying she had suffered from depression and ultimately a mental breakdown. She was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Dolores said she believed some of her emotional problems emanated from being abused as a child.
According to TMZ, Cranberries lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan died Monday in London.
Dolores was reportedly in London for a recording session. A rep for the band would only say she died “suddenly.” The rep offered no further details.
The Irish band struck it big in the ’90s … when Dolores took over for their previous lead singer. Their songs “Zombie” and “Linger” were huge international hits.
Dolores released 2 solo albums while the Cranberries were on hiatus. They got back together in 2009, and had planned a tour last year, but ended up canceling when Dolores had back pain.
She split from her husband of 20 years in 2014, and survived by 3 children. Dolores was 46.
