Sharon Osbourne ‘Devastated’ by Ozzy’s Drinking, Drug UseBy: Sean Patterson - April 24, 2013
Earlier this month, Ozzy Osbourne took to his Facebook page to clear up a myriad of rumors that had begun circulating about his family.
Osbourne admitted that for the last year and a half he has relapsed, drinking and doing drugs. He stated that he “was in a dark place” and “was an asshole to the people” he loves most. Though Osbourne did not deny that rumors that he and his wife, Sharon, were living in separate places, he did emphasize that they are not divorcing.
This week, it was Sharon’s turn to speak about her recent family troubles. The reality TV star used her place on the daytime talk show The Talk to address the topic.
Sharon stated that she knew Ozzy was drinking “occasionally,” but didn’t know he was abusing prescription drugs. She also emphasized, as Ozzy did, that the couple is not getting divorced.
“Am I happy? No,” said Sharon. “Am I upset? Yes I am. I’m devastated right now. It’s a disease that not only hurts the person that has the disease, but it hurts the family.”
