Sharon Osbourne used her spot as a cohost on The Talk today to speak out about her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s addiction issues and the rumors that the longtime couple are on the verge of divorce.
“Everything that was printed in the tabloids has been distorted. There’s always a little seed of truth to everything that gets reported, but then it gets very distorted,” Osbourne said. “We’re dealing with it. We’re not getting divorced. However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am. I’m devastated right now.”
Osbourne went on to admit that while she knew Ozzy had been drinking again, she did not know the extent of it or that he’d also been using prescription drugs.
“It’s a disease that not only hurts the person that has the disease but it hurts the family. It hurts people that love you and we’re dealing with it,” she continued. “We’ve dealt with worse and we will deal with it and this too shall pass. Otherwise my husband will be taken to the hospital to get my foot removed from his ass.”
