Ozzy Osbourne sets record straight on split-up rumours: 'Sharon and I are not divorcing...but I have been drinking and taking drugs'
Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed he has not separated from his wife Sharon after internet rumours reported the pair had split up.
The Black Sabbath singer posted to his Facebook page to clear up speculation surrounding his 31-year marriage.
“Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person,” he said.
“For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
“I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans,” he said.
Popular showbiz gossip website Perez Hilton reported yesterday that the couple had “split-up for real”, while The Mirror also published a story about the couple’s separation.
Jack Osbourne tweeted in response to the coverage: “It’s all bullshit. Last time I check a lot of British news papers (sic) weren’t amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on…”
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne rose to international fame after their reality TV show “The Osbournes”, which starred two of their children Kelly and Jack. Sharon has since made regular appearances as a judge on The X Factor US and UK.
