Sharon Osbourne Comes Clean on Ozzy Divorce Rumors

After several tabloids speculated that Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were getting a divorce last week, Ozzy immediately took to Facebook denying the rumors. Sharon, however, has remained silent on the matter, that is, until today.

Osbourne spoke out on her talk show, The Talk, about the rumors. She confirms Ozzy’s assertion that the two have no plans to divorce, but does admit that Ozzy’s relapse has created friction between the two.

“I never knew that he was using prescription drugs,” Osbourne says. “I knew that he was drinking occasionally, but I didn’t realize, you know, to the extent.”

Osbourne serves as a co-host of the talk show along with Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Taylor. The show was on hiatus last week, which explains why Osbourne is only responding to the rumors today.

“We’re not getting divorced,” Osbourne states. “We’re dealing with it, we’ve dealt with worse and we deal with it and this too shall pass.”

Osbourne is calm and reserved throughout her address, but she does finish the two minute spiel in typical Osbourne style: “Otherwise my husband will be taken to the hospital to get my foot removed from his ass.”
