After reports circulated that Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon Osbourne split, the rocker is speaking up and assuring fans that he has not relapsed — but he’s not denying that he and Sharon are dunzo.
“I have been sober for three and a quarter years,” the Black Sabbath frontman told E! News. “I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”
Over the weekend, E! News reported that the longtime couple were splitting after more than 30 years of marriage and that Ozzy would be moving out of the duo’s home. Many outlets also reported that the split was as a result of Ozzy’s affair with hairstylist Michelle Pugh.
While Ozzy may be speaking out — Sharon Osbourne is staying mum. On Monday’s episode of The Talk, the outspoken Brit was noticeably absent.
Julie Chen addressed the situation on the show: “As we get started, Sharon is not here today. There were many tabloid headlines of her and Ozzy, rumors and speculations that they have split up after nearly 34 years of marriage.”
The talk show co-host added, “Sharon understandably took today off and we are sending all of our love to her and to her family. And we ask that you do the same.”
