Ozzy Osbourne Claims He Was Never a Sex Addict
Ozzy Osbourne has never been one to filter his words and, now that the cat's out of the bag about his years of infidelity, he isn't afraid to share many details that we probably all wish we didn't know.
"I’m in a fucking rock band, aren’t I?" Osbourne said in a new interview with The Times. "There have always been groupies. I just got caught, didn’t I? It was a bump in the road. I bet your marriage has bumps in the road too and all. In any marriage, you grow apart if you don’t spend enough time together, and that was part of the problem. I don’t think I’m a fucking sex addict."
This clearly contradicts the announcement last year that Osbourne had a sex addiction problem.
Really, I don't know why we're discussing the terminology here: The man had sex. Lots of it. With women who were not, in fact, his wife. Call it whatever you want. Does he somehow think it sounds better if he calls it the rock-star lifestyle versus a sex addiction? Either way, it's not generally seen as an awesome thing.
His mistress, Michelle Pugh, referred to the term "sex addiction" as a publicity tactic.
"He was my boyfriend for four years," Pugh said, according to People. "He was never a sex addict. That always read as a PR maneuver. I still love him. He treated me kindly. He has never spoken ill of me. Nor have I of him."
I think one thing we can all agree on: Osbourne is definitely his own person, which means he may change his mind about his bedroom shenanigans by tomorrow.
