By Antoinette Bueno
Singer Dolores O'Riordan's sudden death in London, England, on Monday is not being treated as suspicious, London's Metropolitan Police tells ET.
A spokesperson for the police said Westminster officers responded on Monday to a hotel where a "46-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene."
"Her next of kin have been informed," the statement continues. "The death is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be compiled for the coroner."
The Cranberries lead singer was in London at the time of her death "for a short recording session," her rep told ET in a statement on Monday. She was 46.
“Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time," the statement added.
On Monday, Bono paid tribute to fellow Irish-born O'Riordan at the 60th birthday celebration of Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan by covering the Cranberries' hit 1993 song, "Linger," with Johnny Depp on guitar. Celebrities such as James Corden, Josh Groban, Diplo and Hozier have also expressed sadness at the news.
O'Riordan, who enjoyed success with The Cranberries with '90s hits like "Zombie" and "Dreams," performed for the last time in December. She is survived by her three kids -- 20-year-old son Taylor, 16-year-old daughter Molly and 12-year-old daughter Dakota.
