Ozzy Osbourne has made a surprising admission about the challenges in his tumultuous marriage to Sharon Osbourne. The iconic rocker has disclosed that there are times when he “doesn’t love” his wife, acknowledging the difficult highs and lows in their relationship.
He said: “Sharon is like my soulmate, sometimes I love her, sometimes I don’t love her, sometimes I’m angry with her, sometimes I’m crazy about her, sometimes I’m very jealous of her, sometimes I wanna f****** kill her.
Ozzy continued, adding: “But through it all, at the end of the day, I love her more than anything in the world. Put it this way, I couldn’t live without her, I don’t wanna live without her. And my love for her now is bigger than it ever has been.”
This revelation follows Sharon’s disclosure of attempting an overdose upon discovering Ozzy’s infidelity with a hairdresser named Michelle Pugh.
Their affair spanned four years and concluded in 2016. Sharon discovered the infidelity by going through Ozzy’s emails, leading to a temporary separation before eventually reconciling.
She spoke about the ordeal with her friend Jane Moore on stage last week, saying: “Ozzy always, always had groupies and I was so used to that. But when he knows the name of the person, where they live and where they work… it is a whole different thing as you are emotionally invested. I took, I don’t know how many pills.”
“I just thought, ‘My kids are older, they are fine and can take care of themselves.’”
“So I took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom. The maid tried to come in to clean the room and saw me.”
In 2019, Ozzy expressed gratitude to Sharon, referring to her as a “god” for taking him back despite his past indiscretions.
“Sharon and I have never been as close as we are now. It’s great. Sharon has been a god,” he told The Sun at the time.
“We all make mistakes. I’m lucky she took me back. Sometimes I sit there and go, ‘What the f**k was I thinking?’ I won’t understand why it happened until the day I die.”
The pair married in 1982.
