It was found that Sinead O’Connor had a sad love life.
The singer was married to record producer John Reynolds when she had her first number-one single. However, the couple, who had a child together named Jake, divorced the following year after the singer earned her first number-one single. After going through this breakup, Sinead went on to marry three more times, but she was never able to find a love that would last.
In an interview with the Irish Sun in 2014, Sinead stated that she wished she had never married at all. She joked that she ‘looked silly in [wedding] dresses’ and that she was ‘obviously a [crap] wife.’ Sinead wishes she had never married at all. In this issue of FEMAIL, we take a look back at the tragic love life of the singer, beginning with her hasty wedding in Las Vegas in 2011 and moving on to her first spouse, who remained a close confidante.
Grammy winners, movie stars, athletes, and many others respond to Sinead O’Connor’s death at the age of 56
Sinead O’Connor, the Irish singer who shot to stardom in 1990 with the hit song “Nothing Compares 2 U” and its magnificent music video that MTV ran in heavy rotation, has passed away at the age of 56. O’Connor was a native of Dublin. On July 26, the Irish Times was the first to report the news, and on the same day, the BBC and RTE disseminated a statement from the family of the talented but troubled singer-songwriter to affirm their grief.
They added, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinead,” and continued by saying, “Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.” Sinead, who had apparently moved to London in early July, was reportedly found unresponsive in a property in the capital city of London and “was pronounced dead at the scene.” The police later confirmed in a statement that Sinead “was pronounced dead at the scene” and that “the death is not being treated as suspicious.”
The music icon, who passed away barely 18 months prior to her son Shane, the third of her four children, was openly mourned by her fellow celebrities in Hollywood as well as her devoted admirers.
