Sharon Osbourne Drugged Ozzy Osbourne to Learn the Truth of His Infidelity
Ozzy Osbourne's infidelity came to light in 2016, with the singer finding himself on the outs with his wife until the couple later reconciled. In a new interview with The Sun, Sharon Osbourne recounts the tumultuous period in their marriage, also revealing that she drugged him in order to confirm her suspicions about Ozzy's extramarital affairs.
“I was a broken woman. He sent me an email that was meant for one of his women," said Osbourne about when she started to suspect Ozzy's infidelity. “Then he took his sleeping pills. I put an extra two in his drink . . . and asked him everything, and everything came out."
She continued, “He would have never told me the truth, ever. He was ashamed, afraid. I knew how long. I knew who it was. I knew what he was thinking and then, you know, you leave."
Osbourne says that even though she learned about his infidelity with Michelle Pugh, more came to light at a later date. She recalled, "Ozzy told me it was over with this woman and I believed him. Then, six months later, I found out it wasn’t and there were others. Only then did he come out and say, ‘I’m an addict. I can’t help it.'"
Ozzy later entered treatment for sex addiction and the couple was able to work out their issues, eventually renewing their wedding vows. However, Sharon says she still has her concerns. "I don’t trust him. I worry about that. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him," said Osbourne. "Nothing in the world hurts like infidelity. Nothing."
Sharon revealed earlier this year in an interview with Variety that she was shopping a book to publishers about "infidelity and what it does to people," as well as a film about her early courtship with Ozzy Osbourne.
