After 30 years of marriage it looks like this could easily be the end for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. The legendary rocker was once known for his serious drinking and drug binges. For years Sharon hung in for the sake of keeping her family together while fearing that Ozzy would overdose. Eventually he got his act together and has been supposedly sober for years. Clearly there have been signs that he had done some real damage to himself, but at least Ozzy was sober – until a year and a half ago.
According to the May 6th print edition of GLOBE, Ozzy learned that his close friend and Black Sabbath guitarist, Tommy Iommi had cancer and the news crushed him completely. Ozzy himself now admits that he was “drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I lover most, my family.”
Sharon, years wiser than the last time she watched Ozzy fall hard from the wagon, has had enough. She packed up and left the couple’s Beverly Hills home and headed to Mexico for a solo, soul-searching trip. No doubt she still loves her husband, but she refuses to backslide with him. Ozzy has now been sober for close to two months but Sharon isn’t budging just yet. She has been dealing with an addict for a long time and no doubt she has seen Ozzy get it together for a little while only to watch him fall apart. She needs to know that he will stay sober before a reconciliation is even a possibility.
