Sinead O’Connor Ends Marriage After 18 Days

As previoulsy reported, O’Connor celebrated her 45th birthday by walking down the aisle for the fourth time with her then boyfriend Barry Herridge on December 8th, but now the singer has ended the marriage after 18 days.

Sinead made the announcement via 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,” she posted.

She continued, “He is a wonderful man. I love him very much. I’m sorry I’m not a more 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. He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage. I think he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap.”

Despite the short union, Sinead says the split with  her soon-to-be ex-husband amicable.

“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.”

And just when we were thinking  that Kim Kardashian was a shoe-in for shortest marriage of the year.
