Ozzy Osbourne has some explaining to do.
He and his wife of 33 years, Sharon Osbourne, announced their split earlier this year amid her revelation that he had had an affair with hairstylist Michelle Pugh. But now, sources reveal that there was much more trouble in their relationship than just the affair — Ozzy would disappear for days on end and refuse to tell Sharon where he had been.
Once when it happened, Sharon panicked, thinking Ozzy had had a health emergency, a source revealed. Ozzy was diagnosed with a genetic condition similar to Parkinson’s disease in 2005, and has only been sober since 2013.
“Sharon thought he had gone on a walk and had some kind of medical emergency,” the insider told Us Weekly.
Sharon asked the couple’s three children, Jack, Kelly and Aimee, to help find Ozzy and, according to the family friend, they found a clue on his cell phone, which he had left behind.
“There was a number no one recognized,” the source said. “It was Michelle’s.”
The insider continued, saying Ozzy finally returned to the family’s home two days later, and he “wouldn’t come clean about where he was.” Additionally, Michelle Pugh has refused to speak to anyone from the family to confirm or deny whether Ozzy was with her during that time.
“They are extremely confused and desperate for more information,” the source told Us Weekly.
This isn’t the first time Ozzy and Sharon have split up — they’ve had relationship troubles several times in their marriage. According to the source, there’s definitely still a chance they could work it out.
“This has happened before,” the insider said. “Hopefully it will blow over.”
