Ozzy Osbourne, the iconic 75-year-old singer, recently shared candid insights into his complex relationship with his wife, Sharon Osbourne, on The Osbourne’s Podcast. A snippet from the latest episode, posted on Tuesday, January 23, captures Ozzy opening up about the multifaceted nature of their relationship.
In the podcast, the Black Sabbath frontman spoke frankly about his emotions towards Sharon, describing her as his soulmate, but also acknowledging the range of feelings he experiences in their marriage. “Sharon is like my soulmate, sometimes I love her, sometimes I don’t love her, sometimes I’m angry with her,” Ozzy said. He went on to express that at times he is “crazy about her,” feels jealous, and even harbors extreme anger. This honest revelation drew a surprised reaction from Sharon, a well-known television personality herself.
Despite the ups and downs, Ozzy emphasized his deep affection for Sharon, stating, “Through it all, at the end of the day, I love her more than anything in the world.” He expressed his inability to imagine life without her, affirming that his love for Sharon is now stronger than ever before. Sharon reciprocated these sentiments simply with the word, “Ditto”, according to the U.K. newspaper The Mirror.
Ozzy’s heartfelt confession followed a recent disclosure by Sharon, where she shared a particularly dark moment in their relationship. Sharon revealed that she attempted suicide after discovering Ozzy’s years-long affair with hairstylist Michelle Yung. Reflecting on her state of mind at the time, she said, “I just thought ‘My kids are older, they are fine and can take care of themselves.’” This led her to take an overdose and lock herself in a bedroom, a moment that was unexpectedly interrupted by a maid.
The couple, who briefly separated in 2016 due to these issues, have since reconciled and are currently stronger than before. The brief estrangement was a tumultuous period for both, but their eventual reunion signifies the resilience and enduring nature of their bond.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s relationship, with its complexities and challenges, exemplifies a journey of love, struggle, forgiveness, and growth. Their candid discussions about their marriage, including the difficult times, reflect a level of honesty and vulnerability that resonates with many. Their story is not just about the difficulties faced by celebrity couples but also about the universal experiences of love, hardship, and reconciliation in long-term relationships.
