Sinead O'Connor's most recent manic episode seems to be winding down: Over the holidays she announced that her recent "Cock. In. Mouth." marriage to therapist Barry Herridge had ended. The beginning of the end began "within 3 hours" of the duo's paparazzi-strewn Las Vegas ceremony, which took place in the back of a pink Cadillac outside the chapel where Elvis and Britney Spears married various significant others*:
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 and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage. It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear. And that being with me was not going to serve him positively , career wise or any other wise. I saw his life leave him because of how people close to him reacted. And I can't take anyone's life. And a woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.
The marriage was 16 days. We lived together for 7 days only.. Until Xmas eve.
Meanwhile I intend to get on with being fully me. With never an apology for ANY part if being FULLY ME. No matter what. I am a 21st century full woman and proud of living it.
And so ends the latest wacky hijinks of crazy Aunt Sinead, the extended relative who makes everyone uncomfortable at every holiday get-together, of all of Ireland. It was Sinead's fourth marriage. [SineadOConnor.com, People, image via Pacific Coast News]
* They did not marry each other! Gawker is regrets the shoddy grammar.
