Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon has made her first public comments following a split with the legendary Black Sabbath rocker.
It’s been widely reported that Sharon kicked the rocker out of their Los Angeles mansion last week over accusations that he’s been having an affair with 45-year-old celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh.
After skipping out on Monday’s broadcast of the CBS-TV daytime series The Talk, Sharon returned to the panel on Tuesday and offered viewers an update on the situation.
Asked if it was true that she had kicked Ozzy out or just a rumour, Sharon said, “No, it’s true!”, adding “I honestly, at this point today, have no idea what I’m doing with the rest of my life. I need time to think. I really want to think about it very carefully. I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.”
She further revealed that Ozzy had returned to the family home, saying, “No, he’s back, and I’m out of the house.”
“I spoke to him last night,” added Sharon. “I’m not with him, but I speak with him. I love Ozzy dearly, he’s given me an unbelievable life and three gorgeous children.”
Asked if she thought that her marriage to Ozzy was over, she replied “At this point I can’t answer that.. I don’t know what I want.
"I'm doing great, I really really am. I honestly, honestly can't thank people enough for their backing me, for sending me messages of love. I am empowered and I have found this inner strength and I'm like, 'right, ok, what's next.' I can handle this."
Ozzy and Sharon marked their 33rd wedding anniversary last year.
Ozzy and Black Sabbath will continue their farewell tour with dates in European next month before returning to North American for more shows this fall.
