After skipping work on Monday, Sharon Osbourne returned to CBS talk show “The Talk” on Tuesday to address reports that she and husband Ozzy Osbourne had split up.
Appearing with her “Talk” cohorts including Julie Chen, Osbourne confirmed that she had thrown her husband of more than three decades out of their house,
She also noted that the Black Sabbath frontman had since moved back in, and she has bolted from the home.
“He’s back and I’m out of the house,” Osbourne said.
“It’s right for me because I honestly at this point today have no idea what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life,” Osbourne said of the move.
While Osbourne did not directly address reports that Ozzy may have cheated on her, she noted, “I just need time to think about myself, about what do I really want for the rest of my life.”
Asked if she was on speaking terms with her now-estranged husband, Osbourne replied: “I’m not with him but I speak to him, sure.”
As to whether there’s a chance that her marriage to Ozzy won’t end, Sharon said candidly, “I honestly don’t know … I don’t know what I want.”
And when asked why she had chosen to split with Ozzy now, after a marriage filled with bumpy times, the answer was simple. “Because I’m 63 years old and I can’t keep living like this,” Osbourne said.
The couple, who married in 1982, have three children together.
Despite the breakup, Osbourne said in her return to “The Talk” that she’s “doing great, I really, really am.”
“I honestly, honestly am empowered, and I have found this inner strength,” she added.
