It looks like our request was Ozzy Osbourne's demand.
A day following the widespread speculation that he and his wife of 31 years, Sharon, were splitting up - much to our horror - Ozzy opened up on Facebook about his marriage - as well as his sobriety.
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs," the 64-year-old rocker began. "I was in a very dark place and was an a*****e to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober."
On Monday, TMZ cited "multiple sources" who said that he and Sharon had broken up, at least temporarily, and were also living separately. Ozzy didn't clarify what their living arrangements are, or if they'd separated, but he did confirm TMZ's report that they're not headed for a divorce.
"Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing," Ozzy said. "I’m just trying to be a better person."
To go with that, Ozzy offered an apology to Sharon, " my family, my friends and my bandmates for my insane behavior during this period," he said. "And my fans."
THANKS AND PRINT
YOUR RESPONSIBLE FOR PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING....KAPEESH
Now THIS is what I call "MANNING UP". Kudos to Ozzie. ODAT
I love Ozzie. He and Sharon will be together until the day one of them dies.
drug addicts stay drug addicts. who cares
i got chicos gig for fall...hahahaha
Seriously....44 days sober. 64 yrs old and still it is all about him. He really needs to get over himself
Fourty for days sober... for the one millionth time in his life. This guy really needs more help then he's gotten.
I hope for the best for this couple. I actually like this couple. I think they are nice people, and they are "real". They stuck it out through thick and thin and it's refreshing to hear of people who honor the vows they made to each other.
Nothing wrong if they have been living apart for a while recently. Marriage is great, it's just the living together that can be the difficult bit at times. Good on him to admit he has been a bit of a so and so for the last couple of years and 44 days sober is a great start. Keep it up Ozzy.
One day at a time Ozzie , One day at a time it will get better
I ask GOD to BLESS ozzie osborne. I really hope that he stopped calling himself the prince of darkness. I hope that he is my friend on Facebook: Jocelyn Sophia, Global University, West Philly USA. ozzie, do not take any prescription drugs, in addition to leaving the alcohol and street drugs, including marijuana. Smoke organic tobacco, without a filter.
80's music is the stuff people.
party on Ozzie
Hey Ozzi, remember shifting your self when you lie above Sunset?
The next thing you'll tell us is that Keith Richards does drugs...
Rock-lol. I would be in shock, too! Good luck, Ozzy. 44 days leads to 45 days. Keep trying, so you can keep rockin'.
Ozzie needs too leave that woman once and for all....after all she's no Ivanka
bye Sharon-Yay Oz man
I booted my husband out when he fell off the wagon, I wasn't about to put myself & our family thru that mess again. Hello – this is your wake up call! He's been sober 3 years now and we are once again happily married.
get a life
What? Ozzy does drugs and drinks? Since when?!?
Let's all get naked.
I'm one day sober and it's killing me...
All you need is one day at a time! Hang in there!
Oh, so he did the new Black Sabbath sessions while on substances? Cool, then we can expect a damn rocking album after all!
I was sober for 44 days once, but not all in a row.
you're an idiot
No apology necessary. Good luck!
The damage to his brain has already been done.
What damaged yours?
Please Ozzy just go away. You were past it when i was a kid and i am 55! if you go away, then hopefully we won't have to deal with Sharon and your kids any more.
So what you are saying is you're not a true rock-n-roll fan at all. Go on and listen to your elevator music then.
So, only 55? you missed all the good stuff, Ozzie was definately part of the good stuff.
why ozzy is a good lad, hope he stays around as long as possible, icon is icon, for better or worse
IN NO DISRESPECT SHARON APPEARS TO HAVE A CONTROLING PERSONALITY. ONE'S ENVIORMENT CAN HAVE A BIG INFLUENCE ON ACHIEVING ONE'S GOAL. GOOD LUCK OZZIE, WISH YOU THE BEST.
Wendee, in email, online messages etc, it is considered screaming to write in all capital letters. Please stop screaming at us. Thanks
Sherri, Stop being so anal and start enjoying life. Caps are easier to read, not screaming.
She was doin' the butt, he pretty, pretty
When you get that notion put your backfield in motion, hey
Doin' the butt, hey se xy, se xy
Ain't nothin' wrong if you wanna do the butt all night long
The Blizzard will prevail.
"Ozzy was snorting ants man!" – Tommy Lee.
??? i stayed sober most of my wannabee rock and roll life guess i missed something when everytime i turn around someone sotned is getting famous then ruining it and getting famous again...odd!! good luck ozzyzeek!
Congrats on your spotless record. Some people are genetically prone to this kind of thing, you clearly are not. Don't judge others on some bar you think you've set. We all have our struggles. The biggest of which seems to be the struggle to accept the fact that everyone is different.
Regardless of how it turns out now or in the future, if he doesn't know Jesus, he's on his way to hell and the lake of fire. Sad but true. God wants everyone to be saved, but so many choose otherwise.
How do you know he doesn't know Jesus? That's between him and God not for you to decide. He signed his message on FB "God Bless" so he apparently does have some sort of faith in God.
Show me physical proof that is true.
Yeah, Jesus is the answer...in your mythology. But maybe that doesn't fly with everyone's belief system. The truth here is this old rocker needs to stay clean if he wants to live and let the afterlife sort itself out. Any "all knowing, compassionate, loving" deity that would condemn a soul to hell for anything less than outright evil behavior is maybe just another mental crutch for those who aren't capable of independent thought.
If your all good and powerful god wanted us all saved he would just do it. Creating this whole game of faith and subservience was either created by a evil and self absorbed deity or simply made up by man. If it does turn out to be true I'll take what's behind curtain number two.
And if he doesn't know Santa Claus, he won't get anything for XMas.
What a load of crap! It's hard to believe that people still believe such fairy tales in the 21st century.How could you worship an individual who would condemn you FOREVER and NEVER forgive you? ...and for what? Not believing in him/her, despite the fact that he/she couldn't even exist outside of a bronze-age book? Incredible. Get a life.
If the answer is so simple, why..oh, heck. Nevermind.
Everytime lazy starts hanging with the boys from Sabbath this happens lol
Don't be surprised – 44 days sober is nothing but it is a start. Alcoholics/drug users seldom if ever conquer their illness. Many have good weeks, moths or years – few have a lifetime once they are clean.
44 days is nothing? You clearly know nothing about the process. Anything past day two is simply monumental. Day 44 means he's already endured the 21 days of hating everything in life except for drugs. I'm on day 106. This is the hardest 106 days I've ever lived...but also the sweetest. Sadly it took a full 90 days to start to see the positive aspects past the simple "I'm tired of living this life" that instigated the process originally. Give credit where credit is due.
Congrats. to you, It gets better. I'm 64, 12 years sober, but my marriage of 44 years doesn't look like it's going to servive. I took a new path, she stayed on the old one. It's sad, we could have enjoyed growing old together. I hope you both take the new path.
Congrats Steve, I also will be sober 12 yrs come June. A shame that your wife couldn't find it in herself to walk this road with you.
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs," the 64-year-old rocker began...
What Ozzy meant to say was, "For the last 44 and a half years..."
My congrats to mr.ozzie ozzbourne it takes a great deal of courage and strength to what you are doing.with the love and support of your wife children,friends and of course your fans you will make it im sure
You know, watch the film "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne" you will find out a few things about his so called "sobriety" in it...of how he was "sober" through the 90s and well into now, this is not the case at all...She isn't a saint either....
Strung out and hitting the bottom can make anyone intollerable, I don't blame His Old Lady for taking a break until he got a spot of detox under His belt , And take a clue here, dysfuntional couples can be really good together if they truely care about each other~~~ "Sharon, She is My whole word" (John 'OZZY' Ozborne after receiving the news of Sharrons Cancer)
i love ozzy...
Sober-Short Of Being Entirely Ready. Catch an NA meeting Ozzie or maybe 90 in 90. Learn how to live-clean.
I agree! we see so many celebraties that can't seem to stay clean and they go to AA. That's a great program too but when people use more than just alcohol they might try NA.. It just might work for them too... just sayin'
Stay off the drugs, pay Bill Ward what he wants, tour with Sabbath one last time, retire and take all the drugs you want.
Bill Ward took his glove and went home. Stop beating that dead horse.
We LOVE you Ozzy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get well and have strength!!!!!!!
Good luck and much love to Ozzy. God knows I've never been able to spend 44 consecutive days sober.
this will give ozzy the chance too start a new project for himself...
Ozzy needs a calmer situation...
the hard part of staying sober is just dealing with everyday life
Good Luck Ozzy
ozzy always been an idiot. he's lucky he alive the jerk.
At least he's done more in his life then you'll ever do.
he'll make it
at least she's doing 1 thing right for this man
I love these guys... Dnt u do that to sharon...ozzy.. Thank god everything worked out for the best... Amen!!!!
he needs a break through while he is still young
One never realizes how much of a train wreck you are until you get sober, speaking from personal experience.
Congrats to Ozzy, and PLEASE keep it going.
We love you and we want you to stick around for as long as you can.
Ozzy will be fine...
Quitting is for losers
and makes her husband look bad every single day....change is a must for ozzy
IF any one can save ozzy ,it will be sharon.Love them both .OZZY PLEASE BE STRONG AND GOD BLESS
end of story
I'm with you Ozzy drinking is hard to stop you have my love and support
Ozzy is an idiot and so are most of the marquee bloggers.
thank god ozzy is out
Sober for now....wont last. Have a Bloody Drink Mate ! And a line.
I know, Sharon has been through worse stuff with Ozzy back in the day. However back then she wasn't too serious either. She obviously loves him but she is fed up. I hope it works out for the best.
Good man yourself Oz. I hope you are able to maintain your sobriety and be the partner to Sharon she deserves. To be the person YOU deserve to be. All the best, Wolf
He has fans?
More than you...Troll
The drugs have obviously taken their toll, but Ozzy rocks in his sleep harder than you EVER could.
I love Sharon but she deserves better. However she seems to love him and maybe that can help him overcome this. What on earth did she ever see in him in the first place?
“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
Sharon doesn't deserve better. She deserves whatever life she carves out for herself. She wants to spend her life living with this maniac, so that's what she deserves. Water seeks it's own level, you know - and so does alcohol.
Who gives a crap.
You obviously DO because you posted a comment...duh!
i really hope they get back together he might have had no one to talk to and did drink and drugs
The kardashians have no talent, are shoved up our derriers and do anything for attention....not so for Ozzy and Black Sabbath.........not even close comparison as the Kartrashians are just that..........
Funny, I like to have my pants pooped in. I should send you a pair.
