Sinead O’Connor got married for the fourth time on December 8th in Vegas, then divorced the guy 16 days later on Christmas eve, and today she tells the Sun what went wrong. As you might expect, the part where she took her new husband, who is a drug counsellor, to the hood and bought crack was indeed a factor.
O’Conner insisted that she still loved drugs counsellor Barry Herridge.
But she admitted their marriage got off to a turbulent start when she nearly bought crack on a wild hunt for (marijuana) on their wedding night.
She said: “We ended up in a cab in some place that was quite dangerous. I wasn’t scared — but he’s a drugs counsellor. What was I thinking? Then I was handed a load of crack. Barry was very frightened — that kind of messed everything up a bit really.”
She seems hung up on him being a drug counselor, but most romance experts agree that going to the hood to buy crack is bad date choice in general, regardless of what your date does for a living.
