Sinead O'Connor Divorce: Singer Speaks To Journalists In Towel

Sinead Oconnor Divorce

After announcing her split from husband of 18 days, Barry Herridge, on Monday, Sinead O'Connor isn't doing herself any favors when it comes to staying out of the headlines. The singer came to the door of her Ireland home yesterday to speak to journalists about her short-lived marriage -- only problem is, she forgot to put on clothes! O'Connor answered the door sporting nothing other than her signature tattoos and a towel.

O'Connor said "I do" to Herridge in Las Vegas last month, just over two weeks before she put the kabbash on what was her fourth marriage. The crooner took to her website to share the news of the dissolution of their vows.

"He is a wonderful man. I love him very much. I'm sorry I'm not a more regular woman. 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. He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage. I think he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap."

This is one marriage that previous 72-day record holder Kim Kardashian has beat -- not to mention quite a few other celebrity scandals and successes that lasted more than 18 days.

And is it just us or is Sinead's home still sporting some spooky Halloween decorations? Check out the singer's towel talk below:
