Reconciled: Sinead O’Connor and her short-term on-off husband Barry Herridge, the singer announced. The two wed in Vegas four weeks ago but split just after Christmas (she blamed her own drug use). In a series of tweets early Wednesday, though, the ’90s superstar, 45, told fans that he “turned up angelically” and they, uh, made up. The divorce is off, but they’re taking it slow: “We decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend again.” In case you’re dubious, People reports they were spotted together again in Ireland. Make it work, kids: Next split doesn’t get a write-up.
