Sinead O'Connor married Barry Herridge on her 45th birthday at A Little White Wedding Chapel drive-thru in Las Vegas on Dec. 8.

Sinead O'Connor on Monday announced the end of her (very brief) marriage to Barry Herridge and now explainsthat a wedding-night drug run led to her decision to call things quits.

O'Connor hinted at a search for drugs on her own website, saying, "Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband's life. 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."

In an interview with Britain's Sun, she went into more detail. "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 experience has left O'Connor, who has been married four times now, soured on marriage. She told the paper that she will never marry again, and added "I don't think I will even date anyone."
