Sinead O’Connor is having sex with her estranged husband, tweeting details

This is why celebrities should be advised by everyone close to them to avoid using social media on their own, especially people like Sinead O’Connor who suffer from manic episodes and refuse to take their meds. Sinead, 45, posted a long blog entry late last month announcing the end of her 16 day marriage to 38 year-old addiction counselor Barry Herridge. She blamed their split on people in her new husband’s life who were trying to keep them apart. Later, to British rag The Sun, Sinead admitted that things started to go south when she went searching for pot on her wedding night and ended up with some crack cocaine in hand, while drugs counselor Barry cowered in the car.

Well those crazy kids Sinead and Barry are trying to make it work, at least for now, and Sinead is tweeting about the fact that they’re having sex. At least she’s not getting into too many details, as she’s been known to do in the past. Here are some of her tweets and HuffPo has a more coherent explanation if you’d rather read that.

Sinead, step away from the computer/iPad. I don’t care who you fight with or f#*k, and in general that’s mildly interesting, but I don’t want to hear the play by play.

    I can’t get past her tattoos-ick.

    • anon says:

      me either :-(

      • Rio says:

        Nor I. I’ve got nothing against tattoos and have a few of my own, but there’s just something about hers that looks really trashy. Maybe it’s the “grab bag” look– like she picked out random flash at the shop. Nothing goes together.

        (In full disclosure I also hate chestpieces on women, but that’s my own quirk, lol)

    • alexandra says:

      When men get tattoos they look great even when they get old. In the other hand when women do get tattoos look great until certain age. After that you look like a trashy old bag. When I was a little girl I used to love Cher in that video If I could turn back time. However, he tattoos were disturbing because she was older and did not look cool at all. Youth does not last long.

    • whatevs says:

      i love tats but hers are just ugly-bad colours, unsuitable sizes (for their shapes) and wrong placement for every one of them :(

    Sinead needs her own reality show on E!.

    • Kimbob says:

      I couldn’t agree more! She’d be WAY MORE interesting than that Courtney Stodden and Doug what’s-his-name, right?! Hell, it looks like she’s gunning for such to me.

      On a more serious note, this bitch needs to be muzzled…and FAST! Don’t they have psych commitment laws in Ireland?! She’s WAY OFF the radar in my humble opinion. For real, this whole boyfriend-marriage episode WREAKS of her being on the crazy train that’s barreling down the tracks w/no engineer at the helm….it’s gotta STOP. If it ends on its’ own steam…well…it’s NOT going to be pretty.

      Also, I’d like to voice my opinion of the “boyfriend-husband,” or whatever he is. This dude is supposed to be some kind of legitimate drug counselor??!! I know quite a few of such here stateside, & let me say…the one’s here in America are trained to recognize mental health issues, & know when to pull in a Psych. Dr. STAT.

      This dude is in over his head, & he should have realized that BEFORE the marriage. If he didn’t (& he obviously has not), then I’m inclined to conclude that he’s AS CRAZY AS SHE IS!

      Honestly, I don’t have sympathy for this dude…I have contempt. I feel he’s taking advantage of a woman that obviously needs help….and shame on him! He probably needs a Psych. Dr. himself…and meds, as well.

      • Esmom says:

        “Honestly, I don’t have sympathy for this dude…I have contempt. I feel he’s taking advantage of a woman that obviously needs help….and shame on him!”

        Seriously. Instead of crawling into her bed he should be confiscating her electronics and trying to convince her to get help.

      • Jen34 says:

        ITA. We all know that she has mental issues, but what is his excuse? I would not send my kids to him for counseling because his judgement is obviously off.

      • txvxf says:

        I think his famewhoring is outweighing his psych training. I seriously doubt he’d be going near her if she wasn’t famous.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        Wow. Whenever I watch The Bob Newheart Show, I think, ‘That Rob Hartley, he’s a sweetums, but a terrible psychologist. I can’t believe he invited all of his patients over to his house for a Christmas party. I mean, who doesn’t want to party with Suzanne Pleschette, but is this the way to accomplish this?’

        This human, however, is profoundly in the wrong line of work.

    • gg says:

      Thanks to his latest actions, I would assume his entire career as an addition counselor is in the toilet. Who would send their kid to him now?

  3. Kimlee says:

    She needs help and fast.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Ewwwww. Why did I read this? Gross. Back to the Fassy post to cleanse my mind of this disgusting imagery.

  5. faithandcourage says:

    I’m really happy for her. She obviously has got a lot of issues but he makes her happy and they seem really into each other. I have to say “Faith and Courage” was one of my favorite records in high school.

    • Kimlee says:

      I don’t see how you can be happy for her she going throw what seems like a manic phase and this guy seems to be using her or has problem of his own.  What other reason whould he have to marry her out of the blue then days later say their just dating now, not to forget how them meet her saying on twitter that she need sex,  if that doesn’t ring bells that something off then i don’t know what does. If he really care about her he would not have married her in Vegas  but stayed a close friends with her until she got better and then start a relationship with her,  I could only Imagine  if she like this on twitter what she must be like at home.

  6. someone says:

    she sounds like a 12 year old girl who doesn’t get enough attention at home so she posts TMI stuff like this online instead

    • Sasha says:

      Well.. if you suffer from manic episodes and take recreational drugs on top of that, it’s going to result in behaviour like this. People who are experiencing a manic phase tend to behave recklessly, like have lots of casual sex, make ridiculous bets on things, etc. Writing all of this garbage on twitter must have made sense to her at the time.

  7. ellie66 says:

    is she having a mid-life crisis? a very public one!

  8. birdie says:

    That’s one big EWWW!

  9. Violet's Roses says:

    Oh my. She is running circles in her manic stage. Its painful to watch. Why will people refuse legit meds and take illegal ones instead that do no good?

    It feels like a Britney Spears style meltdown with no Father Spears to intervene. I am dreading it if Barry walks away from the marriage again. He is supposed to be a drug counselor but is messing around with a seriously ill woman. Look at all of the hope he has built up in her. I fear it will come crashing back down if he decides he cannot cope.

    This cannot end well.

  10. Jaded says:

    She’s clearly severely bi-polar and going through a manic phase. During manic periods you become convinced that you’re invincible, that every hair-brained idea you have is utterly brilliant, you’re full of boundless energy (99% sexual…), don’t sleep, talk incessantly and take every word of caution or advice as a challenge. She’ll come crashing down in a while and unless she has meds on hand it won’t be pretty….

    • Kelly says:

      I totally agree with both of you, this is a severe manic episode. Poor thing. On the other hand, “regular,” non-famous people suffer through these things outside of the public eye – thank god. It’s so horrible that this is being played out in such a public fashion. I wish there were someone in her life who could help her – but I know from experience that the people around us are often not able to do what’s necessary… Again, kudos to Jamie Spears for having the fortitude to help Britney through her difficult time.

  11. Violet's Roses says:

    I worry that this is a Britney style melt-down in the works.

  12. lucy2 says:

    I agree this seems like a manic phase, and I feel badly for her and her children. Hopefully there is someone responsible in her life who can help her, or at least the kids if she can’t.

  13. gail says:

    I’m trying to reconcile this person with the solemn, austere, deeply serious young woman who gazed out at us from the Nothing Compares to U video, and totally failing.

  14. fabgrrl says:

    Good lord! If there is ever a time to NOT share your every thought and action with the world, I would think that salvaging/rekindling a romantic relationship would be that.

  15. mln76 says:

    She’s obviously manic what’s hubby’s excuse is he greedy? Or does he have mental issues too?

  16. MerryHappy says:

    I wonder if he thinks he can ‘save’ her? I mean as a drug counselor and all…

  17. Momo says:

    I get the impression she is really lonely and maybe has no close personal friends/family members. I can’t imagine a person who isn’t that would publicly divulge as much private, personal info as she does. Like the kind of stuff you would only share with your very nearest and dearest pals.

    • mln76 says:

      She has five children and a brother she’s just manic. She acts that way because she’s ‘high’ and wants to keep the ball rolling remember Charlie Sheen last year? Eventually she’ll crash hopefully when she hits her next depression she’ll start back on her meds.

      • whatevs says:

        i’ve known real life bipolar patients and none of them went on divulging stuff like that online… ever! and these are clinically diagnosed people i’m talking about.

  19. Jessica says:

    the tat on her chest reminds me of Yosamite Sam from the Bugs Bunny cartoons.. huh..

  20. skuddles says:

    oh dear, I see she’s still taking a fast ride on the crazy train. Hope she gets help soon and goes back to being a cool artist instead of this nutso, sick-making twitter twat.

  21. e.non says:

    so sad to see her in this condition — and so publicly.

  22. alexandra says:

    I can see why this guy is boning crazy. Back in ’89 Sinead was the most beautiful woman around with the most amazing voice. What mAde her so unbelievebable beautiful was that she could pull bald and be stunning.

  23. Eleonor says:

    is she on drugs?

  24. Maya says:

    She has never really been psychologically stable.

  25. Amy says:

    What a creep. I thought she was so pretty as the Virgin Mary in The Butcher Boy, but now I can’t even imagine finding her attractive in the slightest.

  26. whatevs says:

    nobody cares… moron… actually this is kinda sad she must not have any friends… since she is oversharing the tmi of her icky private life…

  27. Patty says:

    These 2 have zero sexual appeal.

  28. CeeCee says:

    Sad. So very sad. I hope she gets the help she needs.

  29. Vanden says:

    Jesus Sinead. Celebs oversharing on twitter rarely makes them look good

  30. Adrien says:

    It that was 1990 Sinead tweeting, those pieces of info would be appealing and I tell you, I would want to be part of the action too.
    I’m no ageist, but those tweets are like details of your parents screwing. It’s not right.
    Oh dear, God bless her soul.

    • gg says:

      After age 30 you should NOT be:
      Wearing tights as pants in public
      Sharing TMI about your sexlife!
      and if you have kids, do yourself and your sig. other a huge favor and just stay off twitter altogether. And nobody should be drunk posting, that’s just ignorant and bound to get you in hot water later.
