Did the ultimate power couple of rock music call it quits?
After 31 years of marriage, both Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were spotted around Los Angeles without their wedding rings on. The photos surfaced on the heels of Sharon moving into a new mansion in Beverly Hills and reports that they have been living apart for weeks.
Rumors had surfaced that the pair were arguing about money after being hit with a $1.5 million bill. Sharon, who has served as Ozzy's manager for decades, reportedly lost track of the family finances.
“The financial situation has been a real burden for them both and has put a huge strain on them. These were big bills, and it has been very difficult for both of them," said a source to The Mirror. "They're no strangers to rows, but they've been under a lot of pressure recently."
Their son Jack quickly took to Twitter to slam the divorce rumors. "It's all bull*hit. Last time I check a lot of British news papers weren't amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on..." he tweeted.
But it was Ozzy who truly set the record straight on his Facebook page and accepted full responsibility for any of his marital woes. The rocker has a long-standing drug and alcohol addiction and admitted to falling off the wagon for an extended period of time.
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an ass*ole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober," he wrote. "Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I'm just trying to be a better person. I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period... and my fans."
A rep for Sharon confirmed that the pair are currently living apart, but insisted it was due to hectic work schedules and that they are not divorcing.
"Of course they row but they are still together. Sharon and Ozzy have spent long periods of time apart before when she was working in the U.K. The marriage is not on the rocks,” said the rep in a statement.
Do you think Sharon and Ozzy can withstand this test?
