Sinead O’Connor Marriage Up in Smoke

 

If you love someone,
set them free!

It’s been a tough year for rock ‘n’ roll lovebirds, what
with the dissolution of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s marriage (which took
Sonic Youth down in flames with it), and of course those other folks… Demi
& Ashton… no, that’s not it… oh yeah, big ballers Kim & Kris.

 

The latest to “pull a Kardashian”: Sinead O’Connor, who
announced this week, just 18 days after getting married in Las Vegas (that should have been an early warning signal, yo) to
one Barry Herridge, that the thrill is already gone. Spinner.com is reporting that the Irish singer blamed “unnamed people that were close to her soon-to-be
ex for putting pressure on him to end what was her fourth marriage.” (Warning signal #2.)

 

In a long rambling statement, O’Connor wrote on her website, “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,” she wrote. “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
.”

 

Quoting Sting, of course, is warning signal #3. The Pope had no official comment…
