Sinead O’Connor ends fourth marriage after just 16 days
The singer personally broke the news on her website after fears it was about to be leaked
“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.”
The controversial Irish artist then asked fans and the media to respect her husband’s privacy.
She continued: “Meanwhile I intend to get on with being fully me. With never an apology for ANY part if being FULLY ME. No matter what.
“I am a 21st century full woman and proud of living it. I am in a very good and happy and strong place in life so I am doing fine. The marriage was 16 days. We lived together for 7 days only. Until Xmas eve. And we haven’t been awful to each other.
“So while I feel sad for my husband, and sad to be the cause of sorrow to yet another poor man, I’m also happy that I know we weren’t horrible to each other and he is better off free.
“And that I can be me. And that’s a freedom I can’t give up for anyone or anything. Rock n roll.”
