Sinead Oconnor, the Irish singer-songwriter best known for her hit 'Nothing Compares To You', has pulled the plug on her latest marriage for the second time in a month. Following her alleged suicide bid last week, Sinead announced that her relationship with child therapist Barry Herridge is over - they married in Las Vegas last month.
In a statement on her website, the singer, 45, wrote, "His association with me became something very bad for his life. And slowly since we were married I became very ill as result of what was done to my husband and I was unable to cope. And became depressed". A long-time sufferer of depression, Sinead issued a desperate plea for psychiatric help via her Twitter account, asking fans, "Does anyone know a psychiatrist in Dublin or Wicklow? I'm really unwell -- and in danger". The mother of four had raised eyebrows last month, by marrying Herridge in a pink Cadillac at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. It was the fourth time down the aisle for the singer, who had only divorced her previous husband Steve Cooney in April after less than a year together. Before that, she was married to music producer John Reynolds and journalist Nicholas Sommerlad.
It's been a tumultuous few weeks for Sinead, who revealed the UK's Sun newspaper that she "took an overdose" in Los Angeles on January 5, 2012 and tried to end her life for a second time following her hospitalization for a broken ankle.
