After a total of 16 days being married to each other, Sinead O’Connor has revealed that she has officially split up with her fourth husband Barry Herridge. After getting hitched at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Sinead herself revealed online that the couple called it a day amicably after their marriage caused upset amongst certain family members.
On December 26th 2011, Sinead O’Connor published the following comments through her official website:
“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 etc.”
“Barry is a wonderful man. I love him very much. I’m sorry I’m not a regular woman. I truly believe though it is painful to admit, we made a mistake rushing into getting married, for altruistic reasons, and weren’t aware or prepared for the consequences on my husband’s life and the lives of those close to him.”
“We part amicably. I wish him to be free and happy and loved and supported and for him to have privacy as that is utmost important for his job and for the children he treats as a therapist so I plead on theirs and his behalf for media to please leave him and his family alone. I really beg this.”
“So now u can all go ahead and have a great laugh, media wise, and be horrid if u desire to. But that’s my record set straight.”
