Lean On Me- Newly Single Kean And Serial Dater O’Connor Form Friendship

To say they’re an unlikely pair is a bit of an understatement but it seems celebrity solicitor Gerald Keane has turned to singer Sinead O’Connor in the wake of his split from Lisa Murphy.

Kean and O’Connor stuck up a friendship after the attention loving lawyer asked the Nothing Compares To You crooner to perform at Lisa’s no expence spared 40th birthday party in September.

The lavish affair was held in Gerald’s sprawling mansion Drayton Manor near Brittas Bay in Co. Wicklow where the 9,000 sq home boasts 14 bedrooms, a bar, cinema which seats 100 and indoor heated pool.

But instead of hiding out in the sprawling mansion in the wake of the split, Kean has instead been leaning on close friends for support and was spotted with several confidantes including O’Connor heading into private members club Residence on Dublin’s St. Stephen’s Green for dinner on Friday night.

The high-profile former couple in happier times

Ironically, Residence is the same place fame-hungry Gerald and Lisa got engaged three years previously. The 55-year-old reportedly got down on bended knee in front of the couple’s friends and asked the stunned buxom blonde to be his wife.
