These are photos of Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, at a press conference on Thursday, where they made the announcement that Ozzy and Black Sabbath would perform at the 20th anniversary of Ozzfest. They came together in the same car and Ozzy was hugging up on Sharon and kissing her on stage. She was smiling but if you look closely it’s more like a grimace, like she’s just trying to get through it. As TMZ explains, Sharon is Black Sabbath’s manager and this is a promotional obligation for her, it’s not a sign that she’s reconciled with Ozzy after he cheated on her. Also, TMZ has a follow up story stating that Sharon is lawyering up to divorce Ozzy after 33 years together.
However Page Six is wondering if Sharon is pulling a Beyonce and either fabricating this affair and/or using it as a publicity stunt. She does have this tour coming up after all:
While multiple sources have confirmed to Page Six that there is trouble in their marriage, other insiders whisper that it could have been cooked up by Sharon — inspired by Beyoncé‘s “Lemonade” which hinted at marriage drama with Jay Z — to drum up more interest in Ozzy’s Black Sabbath tour, which resumes on June 1 in Hungary.
Even daughter Kelly Osbourne is in on the game, posting a picture of herself holding a lemon.
An entertainment industry source said, “Sharon is the queen of publicity stunts, there’s always deliberate drama going on, it maintains interest in them as a family. She’s a very smart woman, it would be very hard for Ozzy to carry on an affair under her nose without her knowing about it. If it is a stunt, it has got him almost as much press as when he bit that bat’s head off.”
However other sources continue to insist to Page Six that there are real problems in the private life of the Prince of Darkness. It is believed he had liaisons with multiple women, including one in AA, and another on his tour.
This is an interesting theory, particularly because it’s hard to imagine Ozzy having an affair with one woman, not to mention three. As Kaiser said he can barely string a sentence together so you wonder how he could have enough stamina for other women. Look at Sharon though, she looks really pissed off at him and I doubt she’s a good enough actress to pull this off. Maybe she did decide that now was the time to put her foot down, now that she has something to promote. The timing is certainly convenient. Also, her statement on The View about Ozzy, “I’m 63 years old and I can’t keep living like this,” suggests that’s she’s known for a while and only decided to go public with it now.
Whatever is going on, she allegedly enlisted Kelly’s help against the hairdresser who allegedly cheated with Ozzy. The two of them are said to have called the salon where the woman worked so many times that they got her fired. She was also Kelly and Sharon’s colorist, and judging by their hair she wasn’t that skilled at it. What’s more is that Sharon supposedly found out that Ozzy was cheating by searching through his e-mails. I guess now that Ozzy is sober she’s no longer able to forgive him. She’s stayed with him up until now, so it does seem suspicious that all of a sudden she’s mad about a hairdresser. (And a woman on tour, and a woman from AA. I can’t imaging Ozzy even being able to text someone, not to mention talk on the phone. How did this even work?)
