Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have been married for over 30 years and their marriage has endured addiction, cancer, and a reality TV show. That's why it was surprising this week when TMZ reported that the couple had split and were living in separate places. Though divorce plans weren't confirmed by the gossip publication, the prospect was certainly implied.

Now, Ozzy himself has come forward to shed some light on the situation. It turns out that the heavy metal star had relapsed, and has been enjoying booze and drugs for the past year and a half. Despite his troubles, the singer says the he has now been back on the wagon for over one month, and that the divorce rumors are not true:

Ozzy Osbourne

For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.

Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.

I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

God Bless,


Ozzy and Sharon's son, Jack, has also used his Twitter account to state that rumors of an impending divorce are untrue:
