Sharon Osbourne has confirmed she’s split from Ozzy, saying she doesn’t know if she can forgive him for having a full blown affair with his hairstylist.


According to The Daily Mail, she’s openly admitted to forgiving her husband Ozzy in the past, after he cheated while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

However, this time, she reportedly feels he’s been living a ‘double life’ with hairstylist Michelle Pugh and believes he’s crossed a line in their marriage.

A source told PageSix.com:


All of this isn’t happening over Ozzy hooking up with some random on a Friday night.

He’s a rocker, and a ‘slip-up’ is a lot different to what they found here.

He didn’t just cheat on Sharon once or twice – he had an affair with another woman… this feels more like [he was living] a double life.

Reports of the pair’s split first emerged over the weekend when the rocker moved out of their Los Angeles home. However, Sharon has since moved out and Ozzy’s moved back to the couple’s house.

Ozzy has broken his silence on the split but chose not to address rumours of cheating, instead he denied he had ‘fallen off the wagon’.

The Black Sabbath frontman issued a statement on Monday night, telling E! News:

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.

Now Sharon says her 33-year marriage to Ozzy is over after she ‘found this inner strength’.

According to Team Rock, Sharon appeared on her U.S. TV chat show The Talk, and told co-hosts:


It’s true. He’s back and I’m out of the house. He’s given me an unbelievable life and three gorgeous children, and I love him. I cannot thank people enough for backing me. I’m empowered, I have found this inner strength, and I’m like, ‘What’s next? I can handle this.’

I honestly don’t know [if it’s permanent]. I’ve got to follow my heart and I don’t know what my heart is telling me right now. I really want to think carefully – I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.

This isn’t the first time the couple have split but we really hope they can work it out and there are ‘no more tears’.
