After 33 years of marriage, 63-year-old Sharon Osbourne has called it quits with her husband Ozzy Osbourne. The TV personality has avoided social media ever since news broke and after taking a well-deserved day off, she returned to co-host The Talk on Tuesday.
Osbourne opened up on the show about how she’s been dealing with her marriage breakdown.
“I’ve been avoiding looking at any pictures, reading anything,” she explained. “I know what’s going on. I don’t need to read about it and see about it because it’s like putting salt on a wound. I don’t need to.”
It seems she had a change of heart a day later as she admitted to going online and was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from her fans.
“Yesterday, I said that I haven’t looked at any articles or anything that have been written about my husband and I and the girls here said I have to go on social media and see and have a look,” Osbourne revealed.
“I was just overwhelmed by the reaction and so much love and it’s just amazing,” she added. “Of course again, my family here. My girls here — I’m just uplifted and again, thank you all so very, very much.”
During Tuesday’s chat, Osbourne sipped on lemonade, seemingly confirming that the reports about Ozzy allegedly cheating on her with a hairstylist were true. The reference comes from Beyoncé’s latest visual album, Lemonade, which features themes of infidelity.
“I honestly am empowered, and I have this inner strength, and I’m like, ‘Right, OK, what’s next? I can handle this,'” Sharon said.
“I honestly at this point today, have no idea what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life,” she later added, getting a little emotional. “I don’t know where I’m going, who I’m going with, and I just need time to think, and really think about myself — about what do I really want for the rest of my life because this is, like, getting to the last chapter of this book.”
“I really want to think about it carefully, about where I want to go,” she continued. “Because I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.”
The estranged couple have three children together, Aimee, 32, Kelly, 31, and Jack, 30.
Although none of the children have made official statements concerning their father, Kelly did make her own Lemonade reference via Instagram on Tuesday.
“Guess who’s turning [lemon]’s into #lemonade?” she captioned a pic of herself holding up a lemon.
It’s rumoured Ozzy had been having an alleged affair with his celebrity hair stylist Michelle Pugh, who works at Meche, an upscale salon in Beverly Hills, California.
