There’s still hope that Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne can save their 31-year marriage – but only if he seeks immediate professional help.
Relationship expert Dr Carole Lieberman M.D.believes that the rocker has done the right thing by going public about his relapse but contends that he needs more proper assistance now.
Ozzy confessed on his Facebook page that he had been drinking for the past year and a half following reports that the couple are now living apart.
“They can absolutely stay together but he needs to get some professional help like in-patient treatment,” Dr Lieberman told Celebuzz.
“It’s worrying that Ozzy admitted to have been drinking and taking drugs for so long and Sharon has obviously tried to shock him by moving out if the reports are true that they are living separately now.
“The danger is that he is alone and is worried about losing his wife while trying to beat his addictions. Ozzy needs more than just going to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings he needs support and professional treatment.”
Over the weekend, photos of moving vans in front of their home combined with sightings of Sharon at the Beverly Hills Hotel sans her wedding ring stoked the rumors of the split.
The famous pair have endured a rollercoaster relationship over the years, with Sharon being credited as being the person who finally got Ozzy to kick the booze and drugs after decades of addiction.
The couple met when she was just 18-years-old and became his manager soon after, They married in Hawaii in 1982.
Sharon was the brains behind their long-running MTV reality hit The Osbournes from 2002 to 2005 which introduced the family to a larger audience in America
Best selling author Dr Lieberman believes that the famous couple – who have three children Kelly Osbourne, 28, Jack Osbourne, 27, and Aimee Osbourne, 28, – face some tough times in the coming months but can still make it through.
“They have been through a lot over the years but they can absolutely can save their marriage. However, it is going to take a lot of work on Ozzy’s behalf but at least now he’ss admitted that he has got a problem.”
