Ozzy Osbourne: “Sharon and I are not divorcing”
Ozzy Osbourne recently opened up about his drinking problems and also addressed the rumors regarding his marriage ending. “Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing”, he wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.
Ozzy Osbourne is currently “in a dark place”, as he calls it, referring to his drug and alcohol use that got out of control in the last year and a half. The famous rocker, who is now on his way to recovery, posted a candid message on Facebook, addressing his rehab state and bringing into discussion his marriage status. “Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing”, the rocker wrote, adding: “I’m just trying to be a better person.”
Rumors regarding a possible divorce started when several publications reported that “The Talk” co-host moved out of the Los Angeles family mansion and was staying at a hotel. The troubles in their marriage were a lot to begin with, as the couple admitted back in 2004 that Ozzy had cheated on Sharon multiple times in the early days of their marriage.
Now, after 31 years of being a family, they are [apparently] still together. And part of the divorce rumors have probably to do with Ozzy’s addictions: “For the last year and a half, I have been drinking and taking drugs”, he confesses on Facebook. “I was in a very dark place and was an a**hole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.”
Osbourne apologized for his “insane behavior during this period” to his fans, his friends, his band mates, his children and first of all, to his wife.
Sharon has yet to comment on the separation rumors.
