Sinead O'Connor explains why her marriage ended
This is a sad story about a troubled person, so to cheer you up I've gone ahead and illustrated it with a picture of a Tea-Rex (which you can buy here and may add to your list of possible presents you're considering for my birthday).
The British Sun has this: "Troubled singer Sinead O'Connor told last night how she ended her fourth marriage after just 16 days because it was like "living in a coffin". The singer, 45, insisted that she still loved drugs counsellor Barry Herridge, 38. But she admitted their marriage got off to a turbulent start when she nearly bought crack on a wild hunt for drugs on their wedding night. The Nothing Compares 2 U singer — who wed in Las Vegas on December 8 — said she dumped Herridge on Christmas Eve because of the pain HE was in. Sinead said: "It felt like I was living in a coffin. 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." The mum of four claimed the marriage was sabotaged early on by the "interference of certain people". But she admitted Herridge had been left "frightened" by her mad search for cannabis on the night they got married. 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." Sinead insisted she will never marry again and added: "I don't think I will even date anyone."
