Sharon Osbourne Confirms Split With Ozzy Osbourne
The alleged split between Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne has been making headlines over the last few days and on Tuesday, Sharon returned to her daytime panel spot on The Talk and confirmed that she has indeed split from Ozzy.
Osbourne walked out sipping a glass of lemonade, a reference to Beyonce's song "Lemonade" about Jay-Z's alleged cheating. Co-host Julie Chen was the first to address Osbourne, cautiously asking, "One thing that's been reported is that you kicked Ozzy out of the house. Is that made up," to which Osbourne toyed with her ear a bit before candidly stating, "No, it's true" as the audience erupted.
Chen then asked, "Is he still out of the house," to which Osbourne responded, "No he's back and I'm out of the house" with a chuckle as the crowed one again erupted. Co-host Aisha Tyler then stated that she felt as though Sharon was doing what was right for her, to which Osbourne stated, "It's right for me because honestly at this point today I have no idea what I'm going to be doing with the rest of my life."
TMZ reported earlier on Tuesday that Ozzy returned to the family home Monday night (May 9), feeling that he had a right to return, and when he did, Sharon packed a few things and left, at least temporarily.
Though she never directly stated that Ozzy had cheated, People reports that she stated during her appearance, "I'm 63 years of age, and I can't keep living like this ... I've been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know what's going on. I don't need to read about or see about it. It's like putting salt in a wound. I don't need to."
As for Ozzy, she stated, "I love Ozzy dearly, you know. He's given me an unbelievable life. He's given me three gorgeous children … You know, I love him." When asked what the future holds, she concluded, "I honestly don't know. At this point, I cannot answer that because I don't know what I want."
She later addressed her fans and supporters, stating, "I honestly, honestly cannot thank people enough for backing me, and for all the people at home supporting me, sending me messages of love. I honestly, honestly am empowered, and I have found this inner strength, and I'm like, 'Right, okay, what's next? I can handle this.'"
Ozzy Osbourne issued a statement late Monday revealing that he had not lapsed in his sobriety and that any reports that he was not sober were completely inaccurate. It had been reported that the split had nothing to do with Ozzy's sobriety.
