I don’t know why I love the Osbornes, you could come up with a million reasons why I shouldn’t, but I suppose that is true about all of us and I just love them anyway. So I was very sad to see that TMZ is reporting that they have split, and according to their story, ” Ozzy just posted on Facebook that he’s been back on drugs and the bottle for the last year-and-a-half, and he seems to be saying that caused the rift. Ozzy also says he’s been sober for 44 days and is sure he can save the marriage. It’s unclear how permanent the split promises to be. As far as we know there are no immediate plans to end the Osbourne’s 31-year marriage.
Here is what Ozzy had to say in a statement on his Facebook today:
“Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period [and] my fans.”
Sounds like Ozzy may have gone to rehab and is receiving some out-patient therapy. Hopefully he will be back to his old self biting the heads of bats, soon. I’m pulling for you Ozzy!
