Just when you thought Sinead O'Connor's life really couldn't get any worse, the Huffington Post reveals that she has split from her husband ... again. To recap: 18 days after marrying drug counselor Barry Herridge in Las Vegas, she revealed the marriage was over. Days after that, she revealed it was back on. On Wednesday, she confessed to two recent suicide attempts and tweeted a plea for help. Now she explains that the marriage was bad for her husband, which in turn caused her to become "very ill."

In a statement posted on her website today, O'Connor blames the Irish media for doing "very serious damage" to her and her "innocent flower of a husband." "His association with me became something very bad for his life," she continues. "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," she writes. Click for more, including her pledge to never seek love again. (More Sinead O'Connor stories.)
