Page Six: Ozzy Osbourne’s affair could be a publicity stunt by Sharon

Ozzy Osbourne And Corey Taylor Special Announcement
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?)

    I have no trouble believing that it’s a stunt.

  2. paolanqar says:

    And she loves plastic surgery.
    What else is new?
    Water is wet?

  3. Kiyoshigirl says:

    As long as the ego gets stroked, it doesn’t really matter if the equipment works. Ozzy’s ego is just as big as any 70′s rocker. Attention is needed to feed the beast.

  4. Neelyo says:

    She’s a stunt queen extraordinaire so yeah I believe it. I wonder if she even told Ozzy.

    • Jwoolman says:

      It might partly be real (she could be getting tired of this happening, regardless of Ozzy’s competency or lack thereof) but also partly a stunt (taking advantage for promotion of the tour). Also might have an element of a loud message to Ozzy, so you’re right to wonder if he’s even in on it.

      I do wonder how the alleged lovebirds could pull it off, though. I would assume Sharon doesn’t let Ozzy out on his own… I would expect she hires people to watch him when she can’t.

  5. Jayna says:

    It’s not a publicity stunt. The woman was outed who is having the affair, so it is a true affair. But she will milk it and not deal with it privately. She probably leaked the story in her anger towards him and the woman to embarrass the woman publicly and so she could play the scorned wife.

    BUT Sharon is never going to leave Ozzy because she will never let another woman have him, period, end of story. It seems to turn into her against the women. She will forgive him, and it will be her anger, as usual, directed towards the women he sleeps with.

    • FingerBinger says:

      The woman who was outed could be in on it. She’s a hairdresser correct? A little publicity for her business can’t hurt.

      • Jwoolman says:

        It doesn’t sound as though she owns the business, if Sharon and Kelly could get her fired by harassing her workplace.

      • Jayna says:

        Ozzy cheats and always has So no stunt needed. This one just happened to be a long-term affair apparently, which sent Sharon over the edge. She can handle his indiscretions, a one-night stand, but no way can Sharon handle another woman in his life. She will eviscerate her.

      • Yola says:

        I agree with you. Look at the Beyoncé and Rachel Roy thing. Everyone thinks they paid Rachel to be in on it because it drums up publicity for both sides. I’ve been saying this is a PR stunt all week. Then there is the Tori/deener crap with “Emily Badfoot”, that was a joke too. Sharon is just makin a play out of an old book of tricks to sell a tour.

      • MiniMii says:

        It would be interesting to see how long it is before the hairdresser opens her own shop.

        I can absolutely believe this is just a stunt, and that the hairdresser will be rewarded for taking the fall. A little free publicity, a little cash on the side, Ozzy gets his tour talked about, and at the end of the day the situation is resolved (after lots talk of couples therapy then reconciliation) and life goes on per usual.

  6. Citresse says:

    Obvious PR stunt I knew it. Those two are some of the biggest frauds in showbiz including Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons. God please don’t get me started on Gene Simmons.

  7. frisbee says:

    As a Brit I am allowed heavy sarcasm as in “Surely not – I can’t believe it, this cannot possibly be a publicity stunt from that meek little women who hasn’t been pulling exactly the same thing over and over again since the 80′s at least….”

  8. Bridget says:

    Is one of the ladies named Emily Goodhand?

  9. Pandy says:

    Can Sharon’s face move enough to grimace?

  10. NorthernGirl_20 says:

    She did the same just before Black Sabbath toured for the first time .. It’s a publicity stunt

  11. Colette says:

    So is the Katy Perry Orlando Bloom Selena Gomez “triangle” a stunt as well?
    I don’t believe Sharon Ozzy story is a stunt but I don’t think she will get a divorce.

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    My first thought was “No sh*t, Sherlock” — of course it’s PR. Neither one of them does well standing alone, and the hairdresser was totally in on it.

  13. Michelle says:

    Sharon Osbourne is really a lovely woman? I had to laugh at that.

  14. Majicou says:

    I guess 33 years is a really long time to put up with someone like that
