Sinead O'Connor: 'My marriage is over'

WENN, Friday, January 13, 2012, 4:16am (PST)
  • Sinead O'Connor has told fans her marriage is over for good after just five weeks.

    The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer split from Barry Herridge just two weeks after their shock wedding in Las Vegas on Dec. 8; they later reconciled and vowed to give their union another try.

    But O'Connor posted an update on her official website on Friday to announce: "The marriage (is) untenable so that it is now over."

    The Irish star spiraled into meltdown earlier this week, taking an overdose of pills and telling her followers on Twitter that she was desperate for psychiatric help and medication.

    In her new message, she blames sections of the media for her marriage collapse and vows to swear off men forever to avoid a repeat of her heartache.

    She writes, "Thank u so much for all ur kind emails and prayers and thoughts and numbers and advice. Have because of u all managed to sort [out] help and am told [I] will be much better in a day or so.

    "Ireland is a very f----- 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 very bad for his life. And slowly since we were married I became very ill as [a] 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.

    "I will never again associate myself romantically with anyone as I could not bear to see these things done again to someone I love... 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."
