AceShowbiz - Ozzy Osbourne's former mistress Michelle Pugh revealed how her life was turned upside down following her affair with the rocker. Three years after her relationship with the Black Sabbath frontman got caught by his wife Sharon Osbourne, the celebrity hair colorist opened up about how the breakup and other unfortunate things brought her down, but she has finally found her way out of the darkness.
Michelle took to Instagram to share an empowering message as "a reminder to me that I am beautiful, I am loveable and I am worth it." She wrote along with her selfie, "The last 3 years have been one disaster after another, one heartbreak after another and one lesson after another. I gained 30lbs, suffered a deep depression, quit two jobs, buried my father, moved three times and searched for love in all the wrong places."
"I changed my hair like 30 times and changed my look because I didn't want to be me," she revealed, before adding, "Well, that's done. I love me again, I've dropped all my fears as I lived most of them, and I'm ready for the next chapter of my life, or Act III if you will."
Michelle credited "therapy and the Catholic Church" for her helping her find "my way out of the darkness." She continued, "This pic of me is my inspiration to continue to lose weight, grow my hair back to MY look and be me. I'm not ugly, even tho that's what I was told, I'm not fat, and I'm not worthless."
She signed off with a shout-out to those who have been supporting her and to the haters. "To those who have watched me struggle, and stood by me, thank you. I love you. To the haters, go F yourself. And to the fake people, I see thru u. I am here and I'm doing me. Age has given me wisdom and life has given me strength," she wrote.
Michelle began sleeping with Ozzy in late 2011 after she colored his hair. Their relationship came to an abrupt end in 2016 after his wife Sharon got wind of it. "His phone numbers would change every 30 to 60 days," a source said at the time. "He's cemented into a life that Sharon's controlling."
After the breakup, Michelle opened up about the relationship. "When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it," she told PEOPLE about Ozzy, who is almost 30 years older than her. "He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world."
As for what attracted her to Ozzy, Michelle said, "Chemistry." She explained, "We just had it. It's that indescribable thing in life, and you can't deny it. And he didn't."
