Sinead O'Connor and Barry Herrige Divorce after 16 Days
Sinead O'Connor Divorce: 'Set Them Free'
Musician Sinead O'Connor and therapist Barry Herrige are divorcing just 16 days after their December 8 Las Vegas wedding. Sinead O'Connor's and Barry Herrige's marriage lasted 0.222 times the duration of that of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, who divorced after 72 days.
Just after the wedding, Sinead O'Connor was rather brazen in her description of events: "For now though, as you will appreciate, it's a bit of a 'Can't. Talk. Cock. In. Mouth'. Situation." O'Connor is roughly 87.67 times as rock 'n' roll as most of today's stars.
There was no way the tabloids weren't going to jump all over this, and Sinead O'Connor knows that the best defense is a good offense, so she posted the story herself:
Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband's life. And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don't drink. My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage. It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear.
Still, their marriage lasted 6.97 times as long as that of Britney Spears and Jason Allen Alexander.
