The co-host of 'The Talk' threatened her rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne with divorce after learning he'd taken drugs and alcohol again.
Music manager/promoter Sharon Osbourne has been married to heavy metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne for 31 years now but as she revealed in her new book "Unbreakable", their marriage almost ended last year. The 60-year-old TV personality threatened the Black Sabbath frontman with a divorce when she realized that her husband had relapsed on his drug and alcohol addiction after already being sober for seven years prior.
"There were texts going back months, asking people for drugs and saying, 'Don't tell the old girl.' It was all there. Everything I knew I'd find but desperately hoped I wouldn't. My husband was abusing again," wrote Sharon about her discovery right before they were to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary on July 4, 2012. Ozzy and the rest of the family came to join her in New York where she had been filming "America's Got Talent" but apparently Ozzy was high and just sat on the sofa the whole time.
Intent on getting her husband on track when they went back to their home base in Los Angeles, Sharon took Ozzy to Alcoholics Anonymous and therapy. But this was soon broken by a weird call from the rocker saying he needed to be a bachelor again and an episode when he went missing only to resurface the next day with lots of booze.
For this odd behavior and over a text from Ozzy saying, "I need help. I'm hurting. I've been using for a year and a half," Sharon ordered all his cars to be sold as sort of a wake-up call. Perhaps this shook Ozzy enough for him to post an apology on his Facebook page afterwards, saying, "I was in a very dark place," and disproving rumors of a divorce.
