Sinéad O’Connor, the Irish is releasing a memoir titled “Rememberings” on June 1. However, the singer opened up about her teenage affair. She revealed that she was engaged in a relationship with a married minister in London. In 1992, O’Connor ripped a photo of the Pope on “SNL.” However, she further stated that she did not regret this.
Sinéad also made some remarks in her upcoming memoir, “Rememberings” which will explore the childhood, activism, and music career of the Irish singer. She also stated that how difficult it was for her to establish herself as a singer. As per, ‘The Independent’, O’Connor said she had an affair with a 47-year-old minister of a London Baptist church when she was 18.
O’Connor, the 54-year-old singer wrote, “We had somewhat of an affair.” “The minister had convinced me (since I was young and an idiot) that his wife didn’t understand him. I was his true love and all that stuff.” She added, “After a while, I realized I was being duped for the shtupping. Sitting by myself until our weekly hour-long visit, not going out with anyone else, I was like Whitney bloomin’ Houston, saving all my love, like a total moron.”
O’Connor further mentioned that she broke her ties with the minister after getting into a car accident. Also, the minister refused to help her because he didn’t want them to be seen together. The insider had reached out to O’Connor’s representatives for comment but did not hear back in time for publication. O’Connor became an international sensation in the early 1990s when she released her breakout song, “Nothing Compares 2 U,” as per the Prince.
In 1992, she was embroiled in controversy, when on “Saturday Night Live”, she ripped off a photograph of Pope John Paul II. However, she termed this action as her way to protest abuse in the Catholic Church. During the performance, she told the audience to “fight the real enemy.”
