OzzyOsbourneShhh In the wake of rumors that his marriage is in trouble, Ozzy Osbourne has posted the following message on his Facebook page:

“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,


Osbourne had been busy recording Black Sabbath’s new album, 13, which will be released on June 11th. Black Sabbath have also announced four North American tour dates. Tickets go on sale for these shows April 20th.


  1. Ummmmmmmmm, would one of the people he has been and asshole “to the people he loves most” also inculde BILL WARD?!?!?!?!?!? Sabbath is a joke without Bill Ward on drums!!

  2. I am old enough remember when the first Black Sabbath album came out and listened to it for the first time in college. Never heard anything like it. These guys were as dark as their music. Their drug life style epsecially Ozzie’s was well know even then. Well Ozzy is over 60 with kids like his bandmates. As well as I am. That includes most of us of this age group. We accepted Ozzie’s carzyness then but it no longer funny. He has been on and off the wagon for drugs and booze while most of us have move on, become responsible and think of our families first. That include his bandmates. Ozzie’s lifesyle is no longer funny any more. He’s a drunk and a drug addict plain and simple. His act is tired as wsell as his music. The only thing that is keeping him alive is science. He mistreats his family on a milisecond basis. I have no desire to listen to this selfish sociopath who mistreats his family on a daily basis. No one should feel sorry for him. They should avoid him.

  3. An addition to my comment. People who love metal music like I do have so much respect for Ronnie James Dio. Not just for his music but because he was such a gentle soul who loved his fans and family. Thats why we continue to hold him in high regard and respect him. When Ozzie goes to “Great Beyond” I doubt any decent human being or metal fan will hold him in high regard.

  4. I was introduced to Sabbath with their Heaven and Hell album in the early 90’s. Dio will always be my favorite Sabbath singer. I was looking forward to hearing the reunion, but without Ward I do not consider it a reunion anymore.

  5. He should have left her after the Maiden incident or when she ordered the removal of the original bass and drums parts on Randy’s albums. I’m just going to just assume Ozzy was too out of it to realize either of those things happened.

  6. Ozzy at this age, you are pathetic. Don’t apologize in the press, apologize to your family; you owe us nothing. Maybe with Sharon out of the picture, you can fix the wrong of this “reunion” and get Bill Ward behind the drum kit.

  7. It’s funny, but every time some “big star” has a new product to sell, there’s a “scandal” or at least some sort of trouble – usually someone is back on drugs, or drinking again.
    If it is true in this case, I certainly can understand why Ozzy has fallen off the wagon again – I mean, with that insane wife and those horrible children, I’d be numbing myself on a daily basis too..

    Must admit that, Black Sabbath with Ozzy isn’t my thing. The Dio period was good though.

  8. Love Ozzy, Black Sabbath and his solo stuff up until No More Tears.

    Ozzy just can not seem to get his act together. He has and always will have issues with substance abuse. Ozzy has to come to terms with his demons. Until then, there will be relapse after relapse. It is sad because at one point Ozzy was a heavy metal icon. He carried the heavy metal flag. I still and will always listen to his music. He is a legend…..hell, the dove and bat incidents alone put him on the map.

    As for his personal life….hope he gets it straightened out. He has dodged the grim reaper on a few occasions. Do not want to see him lost to something stupid.

  9. don’t care about a washed up heavy metal band that does not even have the ability to have all the original guys for one last album no matter what the money issue is. the album will probably hit bill board in the top ten then tank like a stone. if given the choice i would rather listen to Rick Springfield. Just kidding

  10. Ozzy – everyone knows your marriage is bullshit. You asked Marilyn Manson if you could donk his gf. You have another family that you totally ignored. We don’t give a fuck about you and SHARON. If you are a raging rock slut stick to it and make some fkn music for Jesussake!
