Ozzy Osbourne Asserts He’s Sober
In a recent statement made to E! News, Ozzy Osbourne has made it clear that his recent split with Sharon Osbourne, his wife of 33 years, has nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse has been an issue within the couple’s marriage in the past, so it seems that Ozzy wants to make it clear that this is not the case now.
Ozzy made the following statement:
“I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”
This is good news, because while a marriage splitting up is painful, it is made even more so when it is caused by someone with addiction issues losing their battle with booze and drugs.
…if it’s true, of course. We have yet to hear a statement from Sharon, which is understandable given that she’s dealing with a painful time within her family at the moment. I’m certainly ready to give Ozzy the benefit of the doubt, but those dealing with addiction and recovery are not always known for their honesty.
More than anything, we are just glad that Ozzy is no longer missing. E! even mentions that he appears to be still wearing his wedding ring, so maybe metal’s ultimate power couple isn’t quite done for yet.
More as it comes.
