Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne announced their divorce after 33 years of marriage earlier this year, but have since decided to stick it out and fight for their marriage. There has been no shortage of wild stories involving substance abuse, cross-dressing and infidelity throughout the years, though.
When Ozzy and Sharon first became involved, Sharon was the 18-year-old daughter of Black Sabbath’s manager, and Ozzy was a married father of two. They had an instant connection fueled by wild parties and passionate fights.
Remember the Alamo
In 1982, Sharon tried to keep a drunk Ozzy indoors by hiding all of his clothing. Undaunted, Ozzy put on one of Sharon’s dresses and headed out for a night of debauchery, stopping to relieve himself on a memorial adjacent to the Alamo.
A history of violence
During one of Sharon and Ozzy’s early fights, Sharon became enraged and threw a full bottle of Scotch at the back of Ozzy’s head as he walked away from her.
At the age of 27, Ozzy asked then-girlfriend Sharon to prove her love for him. Fueled by her drinking, Sharon picked up a steak knife and drew it across her wrists. She immediately regretted her actions, and after being taken by ambulance to a hospital, was kept on lockdown in a psychiatric ward.
On the night their son Jack was born, Ozzy became blackout drunk and celebrated his son’s arrival by sleeping with one of the family’s nannies.
In 1989, Ozzy was arrested after trying to kill Sharon by strangling her with his bare hands. He has no memory of the event other than waking up in a jail cell.
Ozzy was reported to be deceased in 2005 after suffering an illness and retreating to the country for some quiet time. The rumors were greatly distressing to his family.
Substance abuse issues
After learning that her husband has fallen off of the wagon and was abusing prescription drugs, Sharon separated from Ozzy in the the hopes that it will be the wake up call he needs. They reunited after he was able to remain sober for an extended period of time.
Not too long ago, Sharon announced that despite her husband’s indiscretions, they were trying to make it work and that things were “back on track.” Ozzy’s fought many demons throughout his life and now a sex addiction has been added to the list. His rep told People Magazinge, “”Over the last six years, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with a sex addiction.” Now Ozzy’s in “intense therapy” battling his addiction and fighting for Sharon.
And now the mistress speaks…
Even though Ozzy is proactively making steps to repair his relationship with Sharon, his ex-mistress Michelle Pugh is publically scoffing at the idea Ozzy could have a sex addiction, claiming that their love was the greatest she’s ever experienced. “My relationship was with this really nice, sweet, funny and cool guy … John from England,” Pugh told People Magazine. “He made it clear to me and asked me not to see anyone else. We had a very real relationship.”
