At first it was Kim Kardashian with her 72 day marriage, now it’s Sinead O’Connor’s 16 day marriage to Barry Herridge. But unlike Kim Kardashian letting the media find out, O’Connor decided to leak the information herself.
According to the singer on her official website, the marriage ended because of intense pressure being placed upon Herridge by certain people in his life. The 45 year-old Irish singer-songwriter goes on to say that these individuals banished the idea of him being involved with her and they were people whom had never met her.
Sinéad O’Connor, most known for her bald head in the 80’s, covering the song “Nothing Compares 2 U” in 1990 and almost sabotaging her career for ripping apart Pope John Paul II picture on Saturday Night Live in 1992, went on to say the individuals had formed their own idea of her based on the media, etc.
O’Connor says that because she loves Barry Herridge so much that after seeing “his life leave” because of the way the people whom he loved reacted, she decided to set him free. The two wedded on December 8 and three hours following the ceremony, allegedly, things started off on the wrong foot with bad behaviors.
“I saw his life leave him because of how people close to him reacted. And I can’t take anyone’s life.” stated Sinead O’Connor.
“… a woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.,” Sinead O’Connor added.
Sinead O’Connor is a mother of four and this is the fourth marriage for the singer.
