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.
Sinead O’Connor has openly written about her nonexistent intimate life in a bizarre online blog.
In a blog post entitled, “Is Sinead About To H**p Her Truck?”,Sinead O’Connor, 44, bemoans her lack of s** life, writing:
“I am in the peak of my se***l prime and way too lovely to be living like a nun. and it’s VERY depressing.”
Sinead O’Connor also claimed the man who runs her site would urge her to “take a cold shower” before revealing intimate details, but “I will of course ignore him.”

The outrageous title of her blog post was taken from a news article Sinead O’Connor said she read about a woman who “married and regularly h***s her truck.”
The Irish star wrote: “I’m beginning to understand her head space”- claiming she is so “desperate for s**”.
Then, Sinead O’Connor continued: “My s**t-uation se***lly/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables.”
“Needless to say what I do for a living makes it hard for me to find men that only want me cuz they like my (legendary) a**e.”
The Irish singer then joked about joining a dating service, requesting no-one younger than 44, no one named Brian or Nigel and stating they “Must be blind enough to think I’m gorgeous.”
The rambling revelations are particularly unusual as Sinead O’Connor came out as a lesbian in 2000, but is writing about her search for a man.
Before she signed off, Sinead O’Connor wrote: “I must end now as I have a hot date with a banana.”
Four days later, Sinead blogged again that she had found a man, saying: “Search called off for now. Suitable man found.
“Filled by an extremely sweet, kind, very respectful, considerate but absolutely FILTHY minded, un-inhibited RUDE s** maniac named John. and no.. I don’t mean John Waters.”
John Waters is her ex-partner and father to her daughter Brigidine.
However she then discovered said John had a pregnant girlfriend and has since reopened the campaign.
Sinead O’Connor has been married three times and has four children.
