Just a short while after learning of her husband’s alleged affair, Sharon Osbourne is now reportedly disgusted with Ozzy Osbourne. However, a reconciliation for the couple has not been ruled out, and they’re are trying to work things out and regain their marriage, Page Six reports.
“They’re not about to book a trip to the Maldives together,” a source close to the family was quoted as saying, “but they talk every day. She’s still disgusted by him.”
Last month, it was announced that one of the most solid couples in showbiz were parting ways after more than three decades of marriage. The musician, Ozzy Osbourne, and his wife, Sharon, said enough. As reported by E! News, both had decided to separate by mutual agreement and for reasons that are not linked to drug addictions of the rock star, who has been sober for more than three years. A source told the publication that the couple mutually agreed that Ozzy would move out of the house temporarily.
Ozzy recently spoke with news sources regarding the split, and the Black Sabbath member clarified that the problems he’s having with his wife were not because of drug abuse.
“I have been sober for three and a quarter years,” the 67-year-old said. “I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”
Ozzy is said to have been cheating on his wife with celeb hairstylist Michelle Pugh. Sharon reportedly took the news of her husband’s affair hard but she has been getting better after receiving a lot of support, especially from her co-hosts at The Talk.
“Sarah Gilbert has really been there for Sharon, and the kids [Jack and Kelly] are firmly on Team Sharon, not Team Ozzy,” an insider said.
While it appears a possible reconciliation between the Black Sabbath rocker and his wife is imminent, the TV show host is reportedly seeking out the services of the famous divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser.
“She’s mentally ready to take steps to end her 33 year marriage to Ozzy. Since they have no minor children and California is a no fault state, a divorce would boil down to a property settlement,” TMZ said.
A source close to the family said the 63-year-old is depressed after the separation. The alleged romance between Michelle Pugh and Ozzy Osbourne was a shocking revelation in the Osbourne home. Supposedly it’s over, but this has not been confirmed, and Pugh has not spoken on the matter.
Ozzy and Sharon met in the mid-seventies when Black Sabbath was at the peak of its fame. On June 4, 1982, they married and had three children, Aimee, Kelly, and Jack. The family, except Aimee, starred in the hit reality show The Osbournes, which lasted three years.
The personal life of Sharon Osbourne may be in crisis, but her career is stronger than ever as the presenter has confirmed her return to the British version of the program The X Factor after quitting in 2008 because she disliked panel co-star Dannii Minogue.
“I’m overjoyed about going back to The X Factor, sitting with Lou, Lou, gorgeous Nicole and naughty Simon,” she said. “But most of all, I can’t wait to meet baby Eric (son of Simon Cowell)”.
On Wednesday, June 1, it was announced that Sharon will return as a judge of the program with Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, and Simon Cowell. The new lineup of the show will replace Nick Grimshaw, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, and Rita Ora, who, reports Hollywood Life, had the lowest ratings during the final season of the show.
