The singer will speak candidly about her mother, who she says ritually abused her as a child.

“Every day of our lives, she ran a torture chamber,” O’Connor reveals. “She was a person who would delight and smile in torturing you.”

When Dr. Phil asks what she loves about her mother, the singer immediately responds, “What I love about my mother is that she’s dead.”

The show will also feature O’Connor performing a capella, including a rendition of the song that made her famous, Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
