Sinead O’Connor’s fourth marriage, which lasted from December 8 to December 24, is officially over.
I’m starting to wonder if she’s the more respected and older version of Lindsay Lohan. Her exploits as of late overshadow her success in the early 90s.
Her reasons for the separation from Barry Herridge make about as much sense as her reasons for marrying the guy. She wrote this “explanation” on her blog, “From the moment myself and my husband got together not long ago, there was intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me. These were people who had never met me but had formed opinions of me based on what they read about ‘Sinead ‘O’Connor’ in the media.”
“Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband’s life. And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don’t drink. My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience”
So not only was it friends and family that ruined the union but her desire for weed? She makes it sound like she dragged him all over Vegas and subjected him to various horrors, kinda like The Hangover? At least that would explain all the bad tattoos.
She mentioned that her and Herridge lived together for only seven days and that they hadn’t been “awful” to one another. Huffington Post pointed out that there are actually past marriages with shorter durations, Mario Lopez + Ali Landry for instance, Dennis Rodman + Carmen Electra and Britney Spears + Jason Alexander.
[Random fact: O’Connor’s song, “Lay Your Head Down,” will appear on the Albert Nobbs soundtrack. Synopsis: Glenn Close plays a woman passing as a man in order to work/survive in the 19th century]
