announced on her website today that she ended her marriage on Christmas Eve, just 16 short days after she walked down a Las Vegas aisle. She wrote a long note saying that people around her husband were not happy with him marrying her and it was too much for him so she “set him free”. She wrote, “From the moment myself and my husband got together not long ago, there was intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me. These were people who had never met me but had formed opinions of me based on what they read about ‘Sinead ‘O’Connor’ in the media etc. Entitled as they are to their opinions about me many perhaps well deserved, there was no righteousness on anyone’s part to put my husband through what he was put through as a result of his desire to be with me and to marry me and as a result of his actually marrying me.”
She declared throughout the letter over and over again that she loves him, but she couldn’t let him to continue to go through what he was going through. She wrote towards the end of her statement, “Please pray for my lovely husband to be ok and do not worry about me as I have had plenty of practice in these matters. I am in a good place in life. And happy. I believe in and am committed wholeheartedly to happiness. Nothing knocks that. My only concern is that my husband be happy.”
She then concluded her long message with, “so now u can all go ahead and have a great laugh, media wise, and be horrid if u desire to. But that’s my record set straight.”
Since she was so honest about what went wrong and why she decided to end her marriage, I will not give her too much grief about it. So instead I will say “Take that Kim Kardashian.” That’s how you end a marriage so shortly after you began it.
