Been hurt to the Corr

Sharon’s angry new single about ex


SHARON Corr appears to address the he breakdown of her 18-year marriage in upcoming new single The Fool and the Scorpion.

The Madrid- based Dundalk mother-of-two, who split from to Belfast barrister Gavin Bonnar in 2019, sings at one point: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, may you choke on the tears of a mother’s love.”

Elsewhere in the song Sharon accuses the apparent target of her anger of “sucking on the blood of the marriage rights, playing mummies and daddies with my babies.”

At the time of the split Spanish press reported Bonnar had found love with Telma Ortiz, the sister of the Queen of Spain, Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano.

The pair only became romantical­ly involved “some time after the separation”, according to Spanish sources.
