Sinead O’Connor has revealed how she was handed Class A drugs after taking her new drug-counselor husband Barry Herridge on a marijuana hunt on their wedding night.

Sinead O’Connor says her fourth marriage was in trouble from the start and the wild search on the mean streets of Las Vegas led to their eventual split 16 days later.

The 45-year-old Irish singer insists she still loves Barry Herridge, 38, but says she ended their relationship on Christmas Eve because of the pain he was in.

Sinead O’Connor and Barry Herridge met online four months ago after he responded to a plea by unlucky-in-love singer asking for potential suitors to come forward.

The couple married on December 8 in a quickie wedding at the famous Little White Chapel in the Nevada state.

Sinead o’Connor told The Sun that she took Barry Herridge on a search for cannabis afterwards.

“We ended up in a cab in some place that was quite dangerous.

“I wasn’t scared – but he’s a drugs counselor. 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.”

The purchase or possession of cannabis is an offence in Nevada, subject to a fine of up to $600 for a first offence.

However, far more serious might be the repercussions for her music career.

For the U.S. authorities routinely refuse travel and work visas to those who have committed “crimes of moral turpitude”.

These crimes include “a violation (or conspiracy or attempt to violate) any law or regulations of a State, the United States or a foreign country relating to a controlled substance”.


In 1992, Sinead O’Connor appeared to advocate marijuana smoking and in a 1999 Irish Times interview, the singer admitted to smoking “weed”, saying: “I do not take drugs – I smoke a little weed now and again, which I told the social workers and they laughed.

“I do not take drink or any other drugs. Everybody knows that.”

Sinead O’Connor said her latest marriage was also sabotaged early on by the “interference of certain people”.

“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 mother-of-four says she will never marry again and may not even date anyone.

Sinead O’Connor this week emerged from her home looking tired, stressed and grey-haired. Gone was the pretty pink frock from her wedding – and instead she came to the door in nothing but a towel before hurriedly changing into a T-shirt and jeans.

George Michael’s current hospitalization is the second time he has been ill on his worldwide Symphonica Tour, which started in Prague, Czech Republic in August.

In October, George Michael cancelled one of his three sell-out gigs at London’s Royal Albert Hall due to illness.

At the time, singer’ spokesperson said he was suffering from a viral infection and had a high temperature.

That gig has now been rescheduled for May 2012.

George Micahel’s tour sees him performing with a 41-piece orchestra and in front of a giant red LED wall.
