Sharon Osbourne has broken her silence over husband Ozzy Osbourne’s recent relapses.
Recently, the Ozzman admitteth that, for the last year or so, he’s been back on the sauce and even using drugs.
The confession came amid rampant rumors the first couple of metal was about to go the way of the Dodo. Or the dove, in Ozzy’s case.
On her female-friendly talk show, Sharon shot down reports the couple were done.
“Everything that was printed in the tabloids has been distorted,” says Sharon. “There’s always a little seed of truth to everything that gets reported, but then it gets very distorted.
“The only thing that’s true was the Facebook posting that my husband did on his Facebook where he said he’s been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the last year and a half, and that he’s been an asshole, and he’s been in a very dark place. That’s true — it’s very true,” says Sharon.
“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, you know, to the extent.
“It’s our business,” she told a national audience, “and we’re dealing with it. We’re not getting divorced, however.
“Am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am. I’m devastated right now,” says Sharon. “It’s a disease that not only hurts the person that has the disease, but it hurts the family. It hurts people who love you.
“We’re dealing with it. We’ve dealt with worse, and we will deal with it, and this, too, shall pass… Otherwise, my husband will be taken to hospital to get my foot removed from his ass.”
Anyone else thinking the Osbourne family’s just cursed?
