Sharon Osbourne has told U.K.’s The Sunday Times magazine that her husband Ozzy cheated on her with five women in five different countries. She also revealed that the BLACK SABBATH singer had been unfaithful for several years before seeking therapy for sex addiction.
She said: “The shit that’s been going on with my husband recently, it’s been going on for about five years but people are talking about it now. We’ve survived everything, drink, drugs and now it’s women.
“Somehow drugs and drink is more acceptable I think. When it’s somebody that has a sex addiction, it’s embarrassing. He’s come out and admitted it finally. It’s very, very hard. It’s been going on for at least six years.”
Sharon announced in May that she had split with her husband after he was alleged to have been involved with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh.
Ozzy later claimed their marriage was back on track, but Sharon said she remained uncertain whether she could trust him.
Sharon told The Sunday Times that Pugh was a “bunny boiler” and said: “When you’re fucking a load of women, one of them is going to want more. That’s the one that’s going to get you.”
Sharon also said her husband had been having intensive therapy for sex addiction.
She added: “He really wants to work on it. Today, we’ll see.”
Ozzy issued a statement earlier in the month in which he apologized to the women with whom he has had extramarital sexual relationships and admitted to undergoing therapy for sex addiction. Ozzy‘s statement came out in the wake of the first interview given by Pugh, who claimed to have had a four-year affair with the BLACK SABBATH singer.
Ozzy reportedly pursued Pugh for a year after she first colored his hair in late 2011.
Sharon reportedly learned of Ozzy‘s affair by having a private investigator look into his activities. A source told In Touch that Sharon “found out that Ozzy was spending a lot of money. She wanted to know what he was buying and who he was buying it for. The investigator discovered that he was basically living a double life.”
Ozzy is in the midst of a year-long farewell tour with SABBATH.
