Two days after news broke that Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon had split, the heavy metal rocker went missing. He surfaced on Monday morning walking his dog after visiting an office building in Los Angeles, according to E! News. He also released a statement to E! addressing speculation about his sobriety.
I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.
The Sun reported on Monday that Osbourne, 67, had gone missing. His son, Jack Osbourne, 30, couldn’t get ahold of him and was desperate to speak” with him.
Ozzy’s wife Sharon, 63, accused him of having an affair with celebrity hairstylist, Michelle Pugh, 45, and kicked him out of the house last week, according to The Sun. He then checked into the Beverly Hilton Hotel, but E! News reports staying with a family member.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Ozzy Remains Sober and Is Staying With Family After Sharon Kicked Him Out
After The Sun reported Ozzy had gone missing, he appeared walking his dog in Los Angeles on Monday morning. He moved out of his and Sharon’s mansion last week and checked into the Beverly Hills Hotel. He is now staying with a family, according to E! News.
Ozzy also made his own statement to E! to say that he was not back on drugs or drinking again. He said that he has been sober for “three and a quarter years” and has not touched drugs or alcohol during that time.
Jack Obsourne had been trying to contact his father Ozzy in the days since his mother Sharon kicked the rock star out of the house. A source told The Sun that Jack, 30, was “desperate to speak” to his dad and his sisters, Aimee, 32, and Kelly, 31, were worried about him too.
“Jack tried to get hold of Ozzy because he thinks he might talk some sense into him,” the source said. “He and his sisters Kelly and Aimee are worried about him and a bit shocked by what has gone on.”
All the children have been active on social media in the past few days, but Aimee may be the only one to actually comment on her parents’ split. The oldest Osbourne child posted a passage from GG Renee Hill’s book, The Beautiful Disruption, on her Instagram that sounds much like her mother’s situation with Ozzy.
She loved him. But he didn’t know how to love. He could talk about love. He could see love and feel love. But he couldn’t give love… She thought her love would change him. He pushed and he pulled, tested boundaries, thinking she would never leave.
2. Ozzy’s Children’s Reached Out to Michelle Pugh Who Called Off Work on Saturday
Concerned for their father’s whereabouts, the Osbourne children reached out to Michelle Pugh, who their mother accused of having an affair with Ozzy. They could not reach the hairstylist and she did not show up for work at the Los Angles hair salon, Mêche, on Saturday because of a “personal emergency,” Pugh’s boss told The Sun.
Pugh cancelled a “string of appointments” on Friday. Her clients include Jennifer Lopez and actress Alicia Silverstone.
3. Sharon Skipped ‘The Talk’ on Monday
Sharon chose to stay out of the limelight a little longer and didn’t appear on her daytime talk show, The Talk, on Monday. Her co-host Julie Chen took time during the episode to address Sharon’s absence as well as her reported split from Ozzy.
There were many tabloid headlines this weekend about Sharon and her husband Ozzy, rumors and speculation that they have split up after 33 years of marriage. Sharon understandably took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and to her family, and we ask that you do the same.
A source told The Sun that Sharon is in no mood to forgive Ozzy right now. The couple has overcome previous rough patches in their 33-year marriage, always getting back together, but this time may be different.
Sharon is in an unforgiving mood and does not want him in the house, so it’s a difficult position. Sharon has got a fiery temper, but after a row, they often kiss and make up. It is a bit different this time, though, and she is extremely angry with Ozzy.
She was able to enjoy a “good day” with her children and grandchildren on Sunday to celebrate Mother’s Day, a source told People. The source added that Sharon “has been pretty down” and doesn’t “know how much more she can take.”
4. Sharon Claimed She Has Proof of an Affair Between Ozzy and Pugh
Sharon threw her husband Ozzy out of the house last week after she found proof that he was carrying on an affair with Pugh. A source told The Sun that Sharon suspected something between Ozzy and the celebrity hairstylist for some time, but now had proof, causing her to go “ballistic” on Ozzy.
People are wondering whether Sharon went through Ozzy’s phone before accusing him. She has done that before but in the past she was checking if he’d been using drugs. Ozzy was extremely sheepish and admitted being close to Michelle. It is likely Sharon has discovered calls and possibly meetings.
When you look at Ozzy you have to wonder whether he is capable of a full-blown affair. But Sharon has definitely accused him, whether she’s got things muddled up or not.
5. Sharon and Ozzy Have Battled Divorce Rumors in the Past
Sharon previously revealed on The Talk that she had caught her husband in bed with two of their children’s nannies in the past. She had to travel for work and accused the nannies of only wanting money and to become celebrities.
The couple also split up in 2013 after Ozzy fell off the wagon and was struggling with his sobriety. She also addressed rumors of a divorce on the daytime talk show and said the only thing that was true was what Ozzy addressed in a Facebook post a week earlier. He said that he and Sharon weren’t divorcing and that he had been 44 days sober.
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.
