Singer-songwriter Sinéad O’Connor has written a memoir titled “Rememberings,” which includes details of the affair she had with a London minister when she was a teenager.
The Independent writes that the memoir chronicles her life and career from the ‘80s to today, and one interesting moment was the affair with a maried 47-year-old minister of a London Baptist church when she was 18.
“We had somewhat of an affair,” O’Connor wrote, according to “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.”
The singer soon ended the relationship after she got into a car accident, when the minister wouldn’t help her because he didn’t want to be seen with her.
“After a while I realised I was being duped for the shtup,” she wrote. “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.”
