Sharon Osbourne turned up the page of the darkest chapter of her life. As per The Independent, in a recent on-stage interview in London with journalist Jane Moore the TV personality shared how she tried to take her own life after learning of husband Ozzy Osbourne’s 4-year affair with hairdresser Michelle Pugh back in 2016. Let’s check out the complete details of this story.
Sharon Osbourne said she took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom
The 71-year-old told Moore, “He always had groupies and I was so used to that,” she explained to journalist Jane Moore..But when he knows the name of the person, where they live and where they work…it is a whole different thing as you are emotionally invested. I took, I don’t know how many pills.”
Sharon, who is parents of three children Aimee, 40, Kelly, 39, and Jack, 38, whom she shared with the musician, added, “I just thought, ‘My kids are older, they are fine and can take care of themselves.’ So I took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom. The maid tried to come in to clean the room and saw me.”
However, neither Ozzy nor Michelle shared their response to the claims.
Apart from his infertility the Black Sabbath member also came out as a sex addict in 2016. “He’s been an outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months,” Sharon said at that time. “And after the tour—he’s starting his summer tour with Black Sabbath—after the tour he goes into inpatient for three months. He’s working at it. It’s hard because it affects the whole family. And it’s quite embarrassing to talk about.”
Ozzy also told British GQ in 2020 about the things he regrets doing, “I’ve done some pretty outrageous things in my life. I regret cheating on my wife. I don’t do it anymore. I got my reality check and I’m lucky she didn’t leave me. I’m not proud of that. I was pissed off with myself. But I broke her heart.”
However, for now the couple has successfully resolved their differences. Sharon told E! News in September, “No relationship is easy, and you have to work at it. You get your ugly times, your bad times and your horrific times. But if you love each other enough, you’ll work through.”
She added, “They’ll never be what you want them to be,” Sharon noted. “There are good and there are bad parts. If you love them enough, you’ll accept it and realize that you can’t change it.”
