Sharon Osbourne doesn’t want to deal with Ozzy’s drama, ‘It’s beyond parody’


I was fully expecting Sharon Osbourne to make a tearful appearance on Monday’s episode of The Talk. Sharon is one of the co-hosts of The Talk, and considering it’s de rigueur to use one’s talk show to air personal grievances these days, I thought we’d have video of Sharon making some sad, dramatic statement about the end of her 33-year marriage to Ozzy Osbourne. Or perhaps she would take a moment to blast Ozzy’s hairstylist, who has allegedly been carrying on with Ozzy for a while. But none of that happened. Sharon skipped work on Monday. Julie Chen made the announcement on air that Sharon “understandably took today off and we are sending all of our love to her and to her family. And we ask that you do the same.” So how is Sharon doing? According to People Magazine, not well.

Sharon Osbourne managed to stand by her man for more than three decades, but now a source close to the TV personality tells PEOPLE she’s struggling to keep it together. News broke on Saturday that Osbourne and husband Ozzy are splitting after 33 years of marriage, and rumors of infidelity quickly began to swirl. It’s not the first time Sharon, 63, has faced challenges in her marriage to the rock star, 67, but a source close to the couple thinks it might be the last.

“I don’t know how much more she can take,” says the source. “It just weighs you down.” Adds the source, “Sharon has been pretty down.”

But The Talk co-host took solace in her children and grandchildren on Sunday: “The kids were over yesterday with their kids and their other halves for Mother’s Day and they had a good day,” the source reveals.

As for Ozzy, another insider previously told PEOPLE, “He’ll be back.”

And that might be exactly the problem, says the first source. With all the ups and downs the couple has faced over the years, including a major rough patch in 2013 when Ozzy relapsed with drugs and alcohol, for the rocker to force Sharon to face another wave of drama: “Now it’s beyond parody.”

[From People]

I know some/many of you believe that this is all hype/publicity for something related to Ozzy. I can see how that theory might have legs, but… I don’t know. I kind of buy that Ozzy was fooling around (the extent of which I don’t want to imagine) and I definitely buy that Sharon kicked him out of the house. After all of the crap Sharon has put up with over the years… why not just leave and start over?

Incidentally, Ozzy issued an exclusive statement to E! News on Monday. He said: “I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.” Sure. People weren’t really saying that he was back on the sauce. They were saying that he was banging his hairstylist.

    And the hairstylist was the one who would have had to have been drunk.

  2. Bobafelty says:

    She enabled him for decades and now is upset with the results?

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      She cheated on him as well. She doesn’t enable him, they enable each other.

    • aenflex says:

      Yeah. Exactly. She’s cunning. Not that anyone deserves infidelity, but she knew exactly what she signed up for. As did he.

  3. Lilacflowers says:

    That’s a hairstyle?

  4. paolanqar says:

    She kicks him out. then she gets a few magazine covers. than she takes him back.
    and so on and on. He would be nothing without her. She would be nothing without him. Douches of a feather.


  5. frisbee says:

    Nope, don’t believe a word of this, Ozzie is on tour with Black Sabbath in three weeks time – or so I read somewhere – and this is all an effort to drum up publicity for it…

    • Beatrice says:

      Just as I suspected!

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      The Black Sabbath crowd/fans do not care for this type of publicity.

      This is Sabbath’s farewell tour, entitled “The End.” So, this latest Osbourne drama will have little, to no effect, on ticket sales, which many were bought in advance anyway.

      • frisbee says:

        No, the Black Sabbath crowd won’t care, but Sharon Osborne will, she’s a media t*art, always was, always will be, there is not enough attention in this world for Sharon…

  6. Dani says:

    I’d care more if she dumped him 20 years ago as opposed to letting him fool around until it was no longer convenient for her.

    • Susan says:

      Yeah, but it’s difficult to judge. There were probably more and valid reasons for them to stay together 20 years ago. They were raising three minor children for example. Or their financial situation was precarious. Those reasons are gone now and so when faced with cheating again, she has no incentive to forgive this time. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s rational.

  7. Dani2 says:

    Hasn’t he cheated many other times though? I don’t know how anyone can stay with a serial cheater.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      She is his manager. She stayed for the money and has admitted to having a shopping addiction. She prefers to spend Ozzy’s money, rather than her own. Ozzy has complained about her exorbitant spending habits for decades.

      They cling to each other because they have a dependent/codependent relationship. Sharon likes the money, fame, etc. that being married to a rock star has afforded her, and Ozzy needs a mommy. The end.

  8. NeoCleo says:

    I’ve been emotionally involved with a serial cheater and it’s devastating. I wanted to believe him every time until finally I just had nothing left to give.

  9. Sarah(too) says:

    The Osborns are just budget Kardashians. I smell a new “reality” show in the works.

    • Flowerchild says:

      No you got that backwards the Kardashions are the budget Osborns.

      The Osborns where the first or one of the first celebrity family to have a reality show. With out the Osborns the K family wouldn’t be where they are today. Not to mention Ozzy had talent which is something the Kardashions have none of.

  10. JRenee says:

    He just seems so out of it all of the time, I can’t imagine being in a relationship with him…

    • Starkiller says:

      That’s kind of my question, too. His brain is fried. Is he even, erm, capable of having an affair?

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Like someone said yesterday (forgive me from not giving proper credit, but I’m just too lazy to go back and look), he’s got the mentality of a houseplant after about 50 yrs. of booze and drugs. And I seriously doubt his “stem” is upright without propping at *any* time 😜

  11. Insomniac says:

    Gah. I know why Ozzy is famous, but now I wonder why the hell I ever watched that show and helped to make the rest of this family famous.

  12. Ellie66 says:

    I doubt he even knows Sharon dumped him. 😂

    • JenniferJustice says:

      LOL. I know right. He’s all offended that people think he might still be drinking and drugging, so he’s quick to quash that rumor, but he still slurs, we still can barely understand a word he says, what little bit we can understand, doesn’t make sense, and he still seems zoned out a lot, but it’s not drugs or alcohol so what is the alternative? Perhaps better to allow the public to think he is still drunk or on drugs. Ha!

      • KiddVicious says:

        He has Parkins disease which is similar to Parkinson’s. It can cause tremors, zoned out periods, shuffling walk, etc. He also has brain damage from all of the drugs and alcohol. I do think the majority of his mumbling speech is habit, though.

  13. Dragonlady sakura says:

    I may be mean to say this, but I hope Sharon does follow through and divorces him. No person, man or woman, should have to tolerate serial cheating and/or substance abuse for an entire relationship. The fact they’ve stayed together this long is mind boggling.

    • aenflex says:

      A person can choose to tolerate it if they’re cashing the checks and living the high life. Sharon’s no wallflower. They had an arrangement. Mutually beneficial. They showed it candidly to the world. I can’t see that there’s a wronged party here, personally. Maybe the kids.
      Seriously, you don’t marry a drug addicted alcoholic rock star really expecting him to change, do you? I’m not even faulting her, I’m saying I think she knew what she was getting into and the money made it easy to swallow. It ain’t puppy love, it’s a 30 year marriage with no shortage of sordid details and enabling behavior, on both sides. I hope they get some relief.

      • Bettyrose says:

        I always thought she was a star struck teenager when she fell for him. Wasn’t her dad his producer?

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        No, her Dad, Don Arden, managed Black Sabbath. Ozzy was the original singer of the band. He was later “fired” and replaced by Ronnie James Dio, whom Arden, also managed at the time.

        Sharon admitted the first time she met Black Sabbath, and Ozzy, she was a receptionist at her Dad’s office, and they scared the hell out of her.

        After Ozzy was kicked out of Sabbath, Sharon went looking for him because, I think, he owed her father money. She found him holed up in a hotel room surrounded by cocaine and pizza boxes. It was then, that she said she felt sorry for him and decided that she would become his manager. The rest is history.

        She saw an opportunity, rode it all the way to the bank, and Ozzy benefitted just as much, if not more, from their relationship. His solo career, in many ways, especially due to Randy Rhoads, became more successful than Black Sabbath. Sharon was smart enough to hire very successful musicians to help write great material. His success was due to the talent of Rhoads, Jake E. Lee, Zakk Wylde, and especially Bob Daisely and Lee Kerslake. Both of whom got majorly shafted out of royalilties. Sharon has a very fierce and notorious reputation in the music world. She is far from a shrinking violet.

  14. JaneDoesWork says:

    I think over the years Sharon was able to justify his cheating because of his addiction issues. Now that he’s sober, it’s more of a clear, conscious choice to deceive and betray Sharon, and it may have been the final straw. Sad. My heart hurts for her.

    • Flowerchild says:

      I wouldn’t be to sad for her Sharnon loves the money and fame that comes with being Ozzy wife for all those years and he was married with kids when they got together. If this isn’t for publicity then I think Sharon feels now that she doesn’t need him because she made a name for herself, much like pimp mama K.

      Having said that I’m Ozzy and Sharon did the ex wife a favor. She no longer had to deal with the craziness that comes with Ozzy and his drinking and drugs.

    • Lille says:

      Serial cheating is also an addiction issue. When some people get sober, they don’t really get mentally well, and just shift to another addiction. For some people it can be exercise, sex, work, shopping, etc. I am not surprised someone said Sharon is a shopping addict, because in codependent relationships both parties usually have addiction issues. They just aren’t always at the same level, so may not be obvious. I fear she might be addicted to plastic surgery, too.

  15. Amelie says:

    Yesterday, AH or ET (I can’t remember which) played various video clips…one of them was about Sharon’s bout with colon cancer. Sharon said something to the effect that Ozzie couldn’t even talk about it. If he couldn’t talk about it, I can’t imagine him being able to support her thru her treatment etc. With everything else that has gone on, this convinces me that Ozzie hasn’t really “recovered” very much; he can’t deal with issues. It sounds like this was originally a love match and that Sharon dug in for a long time. She should do what’s best for her, because it’s clear that Ozzie is not going to change. Sharon is pretty darn spunky for her age!

  16. Kate Bush says:

    I read her book and it was really interesting. I think she did truly love him. She took his career when he was at an all time low after he’d been fired from Black Sabbath and made him a huge solo star. I don’t know if he loved her I think he likes being managed and looked after.

  17. lile says:

    Sharon, Ozzy is an a$$hole. I thought he might have grown up by now but clearly he is an a$$hole of the lifelong variety. You know, like JB is aiming for. Dump his a $$. You are still Gorgeous. Find a better man who is going to cater to YOU the way you have catered to the A $$hole all these years. Enough with the “chances”. He doesnt deserve anymore. YOU on the other hand, deserve so Much More than this.

  18. Amanda G says:

    She has been with him through thick and thin and I can’t see her walking away now. Either it’s another attempt to “scare him straight” or it’s for publicity.

  19. Caz says:

    Ozzy’s issues aren’t endearing anymore and she doesn’t want to be his carer.
