Ozzy Osbourne Addresses Split Rumors

A few hours ago, Ozzy Osbourne took to his Facebook page to put to rest the gossip surrounding his 31-year marriage to Sharon Osbourne.

For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.

Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.

I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

God Bless,


Over the weekend, photos of moving vans in front of their home combined with sightings of Sharon at the Beverly Hills Hotel have prompted media outlets and fans alike to speculate over the state of their union.

TMZreported earlier that the two had split, though stated that they have no plans to divorce as of now.

The response to Osbourne’s admission has been mostly positive.  Facebook user Julie Ann Zedis-Ford wrote, “Had no idea you were battling the demons again. Stay strong man!! We are all pulling for you….you have made it through so many things thanks to your beautiful family, friends and fans. We love you Oz…”

Another user, Dakota Gauthier wrote, “Takes a man to admit his mistakes, and an even bigger man to look at them and change it all. Kudos to you Ozzy, proud to be a long time fan.”
