According to E! News, Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, have broken up after more than 33 years of marriage.
The couple mutually agreed that Ozzy would move out of the house temporarily. In addition, the split has nothing to do with Ozzy‘s sobriety, but instead is due to an affair Ozzy allegedly had with a celebrity hair stylist.
Ozzy, who relapsed into drug and alcohol abuse for 18 months a few years ago, has previously credited Sharon for saving his life. “I’m alive because I’ve got a strong wife, I think,” he said. “I didn’t expect to live past 30. I remember when I was 21 saying I would be dead by 40. That was all right until I was 39½.”
Sharon discussed his relapse during an episode of “The Talk”: “Everybody knows he’s been struggling with this his entire life and I never knew that he was using prescription drugs. I knew he was drinking occasionally, but I didn’t realize to the extent.”
After Ozzy was fired from BLACK SABBATH in 1979 because of substance abuse and erratic behavior, Sharon became his solo career manager, and then his girlfriend. The two were married on July 4, 1982.
