Move over Kim Kardashian there is a new celebrity with the title of shortest marriage in 2011, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sinead O’Connor[/lastfm]. Kim’s marriage lasted 4.5 times longer than Sinead’s.
O’Connor and her ex-husband Barry Herridge lived together as man and wife for seven days before ending their relationship for good on Christmas Eve.
ABC News reports:
O’Connor blamed “intense pressure” placed on her husband by members of his inner circle, and her “wild” journey to find marijuana on the night of their nuptials. Herridge, an addiction counselor for children, apparently frowned on the latter.
“Within three hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband’s life,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer wrote. “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.”
Though she still loves her husband “very much,” O’Connor said she realized he would be sacrificing too much to stay with her and was ending the marriage because “he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap.”
