Sharon discusses the split

Sharon Osbourne says her 33-year marriage to Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy is over after she “found this inner strength.”

A spokesperson confirmed yesterday that Ozzy had moved out of the family home temporarily. He later released a statement which didn’t directly address the split but said: “Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”

Later yesterday, Sharon appeared on her US TV chat show The Talk and told co-hosts: “It’s true. He’s back and I’m out of the house.”

Without discussing further circumstances, she added: “He’s given me an unbelievable life and three gorgeous children, and I love him. I cannot thank people enough for backing me. I’m empowered, I have found this inner strength, and I’m like, ‘What’s next? I can handle this.’”

The couple have split in the past. Asked if she thinks it’s permanent this time, she said: “I honestly don’t know. I’ve got to follow my heart and I don’t know what my heart is telling me right now.

“I really want to think carefully – I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.”
