Sinead O Connor, Barry Herridge
January 14, 2012 by staff
Sinead O Connor, Barry Herridge, Sinead O’Connor married Barry Herridge at the famous Little White Wedding Chapel on Las Vegas Blvd in Sin City, Sinead O’Connor yesterday admitted her fourth marriage is finally over for good.
And the singer – who found herself back at the centre of a media storm this week after tweeting about her escalating depression – vowed to stay single.
Serial bride Sinead, 45, split from hubby No4 Barry Herridge last month after a 16-day marriage. However, within a week, the smitten couple patched things up after a steamy night in the sack.
But the Nothing Compares 2 U star sparked fresh fears for her mental health after tweeting she was “ill” and desperate to see a psychiatrist.
The mum-of-four blamed a Sunday newspaper for her breakdown after one of its journalists contacted her youth counsellor husband’s employers.
And yesterday Sinead confirmed she and Barry had split for good – and that she had got the professional help she needed.
She revealed: “Ireland is a very f**ked up country. Certain sections of our media are pure evil. These people, along with others, caused enormous damage deliberately and maliciously to my innocent flower of a husband, purely because he was with me.
“And so his association with me became something bad for his life. And slowly since we were married I became very ill as result of what was done to my husband and I was unable to cope. And became depressed.
“The behaviour of one particular paper resulted in very serious damage to my husband and myself personally and consequently made the marriage untenable so that it is now over and I hope the media will kindly leave the poor man alone to get on with his life.”
Controversial crooner Sinead also vowed to stay single to save other men from the “mistreatment” to which Barry was subjected.
She said: “I will never again associate myself romantically with anyone as I could not bear to see these things done again to someone I love.
“I am now temporarily back on meds but am assured by a psychiatrist I am not bipolar and do not need to be on meds for longer than a few months just to lift me out of what depths I was dragged down to since the mistreatment of my husband.”
Comparing herself to Bridget Jones, O’Connor insisted she wasn’t going to let the haters get her down any more. She said: “Well guys.. I’m gonna be me. And if anyone doesn’t like that they can seek therapy.
“Because I am wonderful. Exactly as I am. As Bridget Jones would say. And I shall continue being me. If being me means certain Irish media will try to destroy my romantic life.. So be it..
“Am off to work today feeling much better and happy the album is voted album of week in Music Week and many great things are happening work
wise as well as of course I have my children, family and friends so I am happy enough and will be old self in matter of days.
“For which I make no apology.”
