Ozzy Osbourne Admits Drug, Alcohol Relapse

Posted by on April 16, 2013

When it came out yesterday via TMZ that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were no longer living together, it was denied both by his publicist and their son Jack. And while Ozzy denied that they’re getting divorced, in a confessional Facebook post, he admitted that he’s been drinking and taking drugs in a very public way of making amends.

For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. 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. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.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.God Bless,
Ozzy and Sharon have had their fair share of disagreements over the years. In fact, Sharon has spoke about the time that Ozzy tried to kill her. I’d think that maybe Sharon might have had a flashback to that drug and alcohol-addled evening when she decided to move out. If Ozzy is sincerely trying to remain sober, it’s obviously best for not only his marriage, but also for Black Sabbath, who are set to release their new album, 13, on June 11. With the band ready to tour behind the album, Ozzy should be in the best health possible, both physically and mentally. Although this public admittance may be a desperate attempt to apologize to his wife, it’s also a bold statement to publicly make, and it goes without saying that we hope he stays sober.
