Sinead O’Connor is spilling the beans about her aborted marriage to Barry Herridge, which ended after 16 days, as we reported earlier this week.
The singer revealed on her website early on that it had something to do with “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.” She followed up in an interview with the U.K. newspaper The Sun, saying: “We ended up in a cab in some place that was quite dangerous. I wasn’t scared — but he’s a drugs counsellor. What was I thinking? Then I was handed a load of crack. Barry was very frightened — that kind of messed everything up a bit really."
The marriage, O’Connor’s fourth, apparently was doomed from the start. Said O’Connor: "It felt like I was living in a coffin. It was going to be a coffin for both of us and I saw him crushed. The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man."
O’Connor said she will never get married again, adding: “I don’t think I will even date anyone.”
