Sharon Osbourne 'devastated' by Ozzy's drink and drugs relapse
Thursday 25 April 2013
Sharon Osbourne said she is "devastated" by her rocker husband Ozzy's return to drink and drugs, but said the family will cope with it.
The 64-year-old Black Sabbath singer, who has previously struggled with addiction, admitted in a message on his Facebook page earlier this month that he had fallen off the wagon.
Speaking on her US chatshow The Talk, she said: "It's our business, we're dealing with it, we're not getting divorced.
"Am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am devastated right now."
The star said she had not realised her husband was using prescription drugs, adding: "We shall deal with it, this too shall pass otherwise my husband will be taken to hospital to get my foot removed from his arse".
Earlier this month, Ozzy apologised to his family for his "insane behaviour" after reports the singer and his wife of 30 years, a former X Factor judge, were living separately.
The pair and two of their three children, Jack and Kelly, shot to fame in MTV reality show The Osbournes.
