Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne Reportedly Split Up
One of the great love stories in all of rock and roll may be coming to an end. According to reports, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are reportedly splitting up after nearly 34 years of marriage.
The Huffington Post U.K. has a quote from the family's spokesperson, Gary Farrow, who said, simply, "At this time Ozzy is not at the marital home.” It is rumored that Ozzy has been having an affair with Michelle Pugh, a celebrity hairstylist, and that was the final straw for Sharon. Neither Ozzy nor Sharon have issued a statement at this time.
Ozzy met the former Sharon Arden when her father, Don, was managing Black Sababath. She began managing his career after he was fired from the band in 1979. The couple were married on July 4, 1982 and they have three children, Aimee, Kelly and Jack, together. But although Ozzy has always credited her with turning his fortunes around, their marriage has had its ups and downs over the years. In 1989, Ozzy blacked out from drinking and tried to strangle her. Ozzy was arrested and forced to go through a stint in rehab.
Three years ago it was reported that Ozzy had suffered a relapse and was using alcohol and prescription drugs again. On an episode of her show The Talk, Sharon spoke about the strain that it took on their marriage. "We’re not getting divorced," she said. "However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am. I’m devastated right now." An unnamed source tells E! News that Ozzy has not used alcohol or drugs since that incident.
