Sinead O'Connor on Why 16-Day Marriage Dissolved


Singer Sinead O'Connor reveals why her 16-day marriage to Barry Herridge didn't last.

"It felt like I was living in a coffin," she told Britain's Sun tabloid. "It was going to be a coffin for both of us, and I saw him crushed. The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man," adding, "I don't think I will even date anyone."

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer, 45, and Herridge, 38, tied the knot in a well-planned December 8 drive-through wedding in Las Vegas.

Now, O'Connor admitted to the Sun that she went on a frantic hunt for pot on their wedding night. "We ended up in a cab in some place that was quite dangerous," O'Connor said. "I wasn't scared - but he's a drugs counselor. What was I thinking?"

She continued, "Then I was handed a load of crack. Barry was very frightened - that kind of messed everything up a bit, really."

O'Connor has struggled with depression and revealed she has bipolar disorder.
