Suddenly, Kim Kardashian‘s 72-day marriage doesn’t seem so bad.
After just 18 days of marriage to husband Barry Herridge, Sinead O’Connor says she’s calling it quits.
The singer, 45, married Herridge December 8 in Las Vegas; she detailed her reasons for the jaw-dropping breakup in a long post on her website Monday.
“Dear friends, I had for reasons u will all understand, wished to keep this private but have been told today it is to be leaked in the next few days despite my best efforts,” she wrote. “So I must now leak it myself so as the record is straight.”
The Nothing Compares 2 U singer, who has four kids, went on to say that “certain people in [Herridge’s] life” down-talked the marriage to the groom just three hours after the ceremony was over.
“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,” she wrote. “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.
“I truly believe though it is painful to admit, we made a mistake rushing into getting married, for altruistic reasons, and weren’t aware or prepared for the consequences on my husband’s life and the lives of those close to him.
She continued, “He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage.”
O’Connor was past married to music producer John Reynolds in 1989, journalist Nicholas Sommerlad in 2001 and musician Steve Cooney in 2010.
