I don’t get it! I just don’t understand what happened!
On December 9 Sinéad O’Connor was happily blogging about oral sex with her brand-new husband. Two days later, she reversed course, blogging that her husband needs his privacy, as he is “a therapist working with very young adolescents” who “must maintain a low profile.”
Most outlets are saying that the split occurred just 18 days after her wedding. According to the Daily Mail’s math, the marriage really only lasted 16 days, with the relationship ending on Christmas Eve. But as O’Connor tells it—um, on her website, for all the world to see—wedded bliss only lasted three hours. (“The marriage was kyboshed,” she writes, insinuating that there was some marijuana-fueled squabble very soon after the vows were exchanged.)
“He has been terribly unhappy,” O’Connor writes of her future former husband, “and I have therefore ended the marriage. I think he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap.”
Also: “Publicity over all this could jeopardise his job. Please, don’t do that to him. …He is a private person.” Oh, Sinéad. I don’t think this marriage was ever really in the cards, you dope.
By all accounts, it wasn’t a conventional wedding in the first place: the bride wore pink, and she delivered her vows from the back seat of a pink Cadillac.
This was O’Connor’s fourth marriage.
