Ozzy Osbourne’s mistress speaks: ‘He gave me the greatest love of my life’

People Magazine published two new stories about Ozzy Osbourne this morning: an exclusive interview with Michelle Pugh, the colorist who had a recent affair with Ozzy Osbourne, and the news that Ozzy is currently in rehab for a “sex addiction,” which his rep claims Ozzy’s been suffering from for six years. You may wonder, like me, why Ozzy’s publicist was so specific about how long he’s had this sex addiction. (Ozzy has allegedly been sober for just over three years so it’s not due to one addiction being immediately replaced by another.) Well Michelle Pugh, who gushed about how wonderful Ozzy was to her, told People that she was with him for four years. When we first heard about this affair (because Ozzy’s wife Sharon and their daughter, Kelly, told the press, outed the mistress, tweeted her phone number and got her fired from her job) it sounded like it had just started. Guess not. Ozzy’s side is trying to spin this as part of his sex addiction.

“When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively about Ozzy, whom she claims first pursued her one year after she first colored his hair in late 2011. “He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world.”

Ozzy – who earlier this month told Good Morning America his 33-year marriage with wife Sharon, 63, was “back on track” after the two split in May – insists the relationship with Pugh was a purely physical one that resulted from his sex addiction.

“He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context,” the singer’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy.”

However, Pugh maintains Ozzy, 67, was “unhappy” in his marriage and “consistently and willingly and generously” gave her “his love.”

“What attracted me to him? Chemistry,” says Pugh. “We just had it. It’s that indescribable thing in life, and you can’t deny it. And he didn’t.”

[From People]

You have to be a special kind of needy and lonely to stay with a married guy for four years and consider him the love of your life. The timeline for this suggests to me that Sharon figured it out this May, thought it was a flash in the pan, took Ozzy back like she always does and bought all his promises and lies. Then she realized that Ozzy was in love with this woman and had been seeing her for four years (during which Michelle continued to do Sharon and Kelly’s hair like nothing was wrong). Also, Sharon may have been particularly pissed off about an interview Ozzy did last week in which he confirmed that he was back with her but didn’t sound too jazzed about it. He called their split a “bump in the road” and said “Some days it’s good, some days it’s terrible, some days you just drift apart for a while. But you get back on the horse, you know.” Sharon probably told him that if he wanted to get back on the horse he had to go to rehab first.

Kelly Osbourne has not tweeted in two whole days so you know something serious is going on or she would be complaining and attacking people.

    Sharon will never divorce him. too much money at stake. She and her daughter are not the feminists they pretend to be. Blame the women not the father/husband. Let’s give an excuse to him: he is a sex addict too bad the other woman took it seriously and she is the homewrecker not him, she took advantage of his penis, y’al.. yada yada yada

    • Naya says:

      I doubt its about the money. Given the duration of the marriage and her well known role in his success, she is walking away with half. In any case, I gather she is out earning him these days. Its not about fame either, Sharons public persona is established.

      This is just good old co-dependency. He is a big useless baby and that feeds her savior complex.

      • Bridget says:

        I wonder if there’s a ton of money at stake. Both Ozzy and Sharon work, but I’ve gotten the impression that they spend a lot and Ozzy’s addictions have to be expensive and limit his ability to tour (and thus make more money). Just a thought. Not to mention, Sharon would have to give up being the wife of someone well known and the status it gives her.

      • Erinn says:

        I think you’ve got it, Naya. They don’t know how to live without eachother. She probably loves and hates the drama, and at the end of the day will keep enabling him. They’ve been married for what… 34 years? She’s probably seen it all with him, and they’ve both kind of hunkered down for the long haul in a lot of ways. It’s not really healthy by any means, but they do seem to be co-dependent. And I mean – if they want to keep going along like that, whatever.

      • trollontheloose says:

        it would take years to sort thru their finances. between Ozzy the band and Ozzy the man. the lawyers, it’s not all cut and dry as far as 50/50 go. But true, she might have bossed him around like a shih tzu , giving him order of what to do and what to say or not (after the whole alcohol episodes) and maybe he ended up in his mistress arms for comfort. He got caught he came back the tail between the leg and well blame the mistress. Though I do not see how you carry an affair with a guy who takes longer that a sloth to make a sentence. So now I am wondering if he ever fell alseep while having intercourse. if indeed intercourse there was. And maybe he came back knowing all too well with his health condition his family is the only circle that can tolerate him and his episodes of addictions.

    • Chetta B. says:

      Agree with you both. “I’ll be damned if some whore is going to ruin my family.” Ozzie has no mind of his own. It’s never his fault. Just so damned lame that they always blame the other women. All the time.

    • Santia says:

      They’re (Ozzy and Sharon) co-dependent. So no matter how badly he treats her, how much he humiliates her, she’s staying.

  2. Brittney B. says:

    Really, People?

  3. Luca76 says:

    Gross all around. Kelly should have faced consequences for doxxing though. Even NPR called out Twitter’s hypocrisy for not kicking her off.

    • Jeanette says:

      Well, guess she should not have screwed around with her married father. I think that would make me sort her shit out too.

  4. Manjit says:

    I still think there’s something very iffy about the timing of this “revelation”. How convenient that Sharon revealed she and Ozzy are having drama just as she returns to X-Factor UK. She probably knew about this for ages but didn’t do anything about it until it was convenient for her PR wise.

  5. Sam says:

    I’m still impressed that Ozzy has the faculties to carry on a 4 year affair after all the drugs he did.

    • Jeanette says:

      Right? And the “meaningful conversation” angle? Bish please.

      • Rayya Kirt says:

        Conversation thing got me too. And sex addiction. I really am trying but picturing Ozzy form a sentence or get aroused seems as likely as Gwyneth Paltrow being humbled. Sharon won’t leave and Ozzy has no idea how to. 6 year sex addiction? He woke up horny one day? Out if nowhere? Or us that when he cheated last that can be proven so the family is covering their bases in case a new girl appears. When are they gonna just call it cheating?

  6. littlemissnaughty says:

    Ah yes, affairs always bring out the classy people. Sharon needs to re-evaluate some sh*t.

  7. HK9 says:

    Ok, it’s official. Some scientist must study Ozzy. I’m in awe that someone who I was sure had done enough drugs to turn his brain into dust can still cause so much trouble.

    • Rayya Kirt says:

      They’re going with Kieth Richards first because that should cover it.

    • egghead says:

      OMG so I just googled “Ozzy Osbourne drugs” before i read this article because I couldn’t remember what drugs he had been on (answer: all of them, but mostly cocaine). And the very first result was a story about scientists studying him to see how he has managed to survive so many years of drug abuse, and finding the answer “in his genomes” LMAO!!! I didn’t actually read the article to find out what the answer was, but I thought it was funny that I just saw that and then saw your comment.

    “You have to be a special kind of needy and lonely to stay with a married guy for four years and consider him the love of your life.”

    Especially if that guy is Ozzy Osbourne.

    • Chetta B. says:


    • Reece says:

      I’m with everyone else too. I’m shocked he still has the brain power to carry on for that long.
      But I’m also not surprised Sharon didn’t divorce him, too much money at stake.

  9. Bridget says:

    This interview is a total F You to Sharon and Kelly, right?

  10. Insomniac says:

    Ugh. I hate everyone involved in this story. Off to burn all my Black Sabbath albums.

  11. Zuzus Girl says:

    Man, she needs to aim higher if that skeezy old fart was the “love of her life.” How the heck could she understand a word he said. Money grab. They are all gross.

  12. Ninks says:

    I’m actually super impressed that Ozzy was able to keep it up for four years (pun intended). How did Sharon not know? I’m guessing she knows he sleeps around and turns a blond eye as long as it’s just sex and with randos, but a long term emotional affair is her deal breaker.

    Is sex addiction a real thing? Like, can it be clinically diagnosed or is it just something people claim to get them out of trouble?

  13. Dorothy#1 says:

    Who is watching Jack and Ozzy’s travel show?? It is all kinds of hilarious and honestly it makes both of them very likable!

    • Snowflake says:

      Never heard of it! Sounds fun

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Jack had a show called “Haunted Highway” which was really good, as well.

      • Dorothy#1 says:

        I would probably like that’s too! Jack is super like able. And ozzy is way more coherent than I would have guessed. I think it’s on AMC.

  14. Lama Bean says:

    This! I’ve been saying this since the “scandal” broke. He can barely complete a sentence.

  15. thaliasghost says:

    I’m so so so tired of “male rock stars” (or pop or rap…) and their behavior. Having affairs, groupies, mistresses left and right, having children with them, leaving their wives for a new younger version to have babies in their 70s. I’m so done with that and it makes me look at men in general in a very unfavorable way. If this is how men behave as soon as they have money and fame….every single time. Who is the one good rock star? Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen?

    • Mattie says:

      It should make you look at women in a different light too they’re the ones hooking up with these married aged rockers….

      Never thought it was a compliment iif some old married dude wants in some 20 – 30 something’s pants

  16. Pinta says:

    I still want to know how her neck is like a c*** because I am not seeing it.

  17. Nicole says:

    Kelly isn’t tweeting because this woman also filed a defamation lawsuit. Chances are her lawyers told her to zip it and not dig her grave further.

  18. adastraperaspera says:

    Not excusing his behavior one bit, but remembering how surprised I was to somewhat enjoy reading his autobio “I Am Ozzy.” The writing is a rambling mess, but the stories are just nuts. I have no idea how he didn’t OD a million times. His passage about Satanists who loved Black Sabbath is worth quoting:

    “They just wouldn’t f*** off, those Satanists. I’d walk out of my hotel in the morning, and they’d be right outside my door, sitting in a circle on the carpet, all dressed in black hooded capes, surrounded by candles. Eventually, I couldn’t take it anymore. So, one morning, instead of brushing past them as I usually did, I went up to them, sat down, took a deep breath, blew out the candles and sang ‘Happy Birthday’. They weren’t too f***ing happy about that, believe me.”
