Sharon Osbourne Addresses Split With Ozzy Osbourne
After reports circulated that Ozzy Osbourne had moved out of the home he shared with Sharon Osbourne, his wife and manager of 33 years, Sharon has confirmed that he had been kicked out and addressed their marital issues on her daytime series The Talk (via Ultimate Classic Rock).
The separation occurred over the weekend and Sharon Osbourne was a no-show at the Monday taping of The Talk. She returned Tuesday carrying a glass of lemonade, which her co-hosts hinted at as a reference to Beyoncé’s Lemonade, an album about a husband’s infidelity. “I’m doing great,” she said to the audience during an opening segment. “I really, really am. I honestly am empowered and I have found this inner strength. I can handle this.”
Unconfirmed reports claimed Ozzy had cheated on Sharon with a hairdresser, but Sharon would not confirm or deny the claims. “I honestly at this point today have no idea what I’m doing with the rest of my life,” she explained. “I just need to time to think about myself, and what do I want for the rest of my life. [I’m] getting to the last chapter of my life. I really want to think carefully about where I want to go … because I’m 63 years of age, and I can’t keep living like this.”
Osbourne also noted that her husband returned to the home on Monday, which led to her leaving. “We’re talking,” she said of their current status. “I spoke to him last night. I’m not with him, but I speak to him.”
The talk show host was ambiguous about what the physical separation of the pair means for their future. “I don’t know what I want,” she said. “I’ve got to follow my heart, and I don’t even know what my heart is telling me right now. I’m just trying to take it all in, process it and do it calmly and in a timely fashion.”
