Sinead O’Connor vows never to marry again
Singer recounts madcap search for drugs after Las Vegas ceremony
Sinead O’Connor has announced to the world that she is finished with marriage – and has denied that her wedding to Dublin addiction counsellor Barry Herridge was a publicity stunt.
The singer also revealed that her fourth husband was annoyed and upset when she went on a ‘wild ride’ in search of drugs straight after their nuptials in a Las Vegas wedding chapel.
In an extensive interview with the Irish Independent the rock star, dressed only in a towel when she answered her front door, reveals the full extent of the lunacy that surrounded her wedding and short lived marriage.
O’Connor even told the paper that the pressure of marriage to the 38-year-old Herridge (38) was akin to ‘living in a coffin’.
The Dubliner added: “It’s a Solomon’s choice; the whole reason I walked away from the marriage was out of love and respect for him.
“I would never betray my husband’s privacy. I remain determined to protect him but I want to be clear on the reasons for the marriage ending.
“I don’t do publicity stunts; why would anyone get married for a publicity stunt?” Even if I did it, the stupidest thing you could cook up would be marriage number four.”
Over the course of the interview with the Independent, O’Connor reveals the harrowing search for marijuana straight after the ceremony and the effect it had on her new partner.
“We ended up in a cab down in some place that was quite dangerous,” explained O’Connor.
“Now I wasn’t scared ‘cos I’m a kind of rock ‘n’ roller and I am used to it. But I mean, he is a drugs counsellor for children for Christ’s sake, you know, what was I thinking? The cabbie was freaking out and everybody else was freaking out and they were all thinking, ‘we’re all going to be shot’.”
“When the first guy disappeared with her money another man came over and offered to help. Next thing he comes back and puts a lump of crack in my hand! And I’m like, ‘what the f**k is that?’ I was like, ‘I don’t want that!’
