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.

    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.

    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.

    OZZY….for your pennance, you must IMMEDIATELY do a 2 hour special episode of TMS….

    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.

    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.
