Sharon Gives Ozzy Ultimatum: 'Quit Booze For Good'
She's apparently threatened to end their marriage...
He said: "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an a*shole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
"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 apologise to Sharon, my family, my friends and my bandmates for my insane behaviour during this period... and my fans."
Now, The Mirror has claimed that Shazza has told Ozzy: “Quit the booze for good, or our marriage is finished.”
An insider explained: "They’ve been through hell together over the years and neither wants to walk away, but Sharon’s made it clear that his behaviour has got to change fast for their marriage to survive.
“But it’s the worst possible time for him to be trying to kick the habit, because he’s about to spend most of the year on the world with Black Sabbath.”
Ozzy is due to join his bandmates for a month-long tour of New Zealand, Australia and Japan with the source adding: "Sharon has been involved with Black Sabbath for years, so there’s not much that doesn’t get back to her from the guys.
“She has made it quite clear that she can’t tolerate his behaviour when he’s under the influence, but knows that for Ozzy it’s got to be all or nothing - he can’t be trusted to just have a couple of drinks while he’s away so it needs to be a total ban on booze."
They concluded: “She’s asked a few of his friends who are on the tour to keep an eye on him, for her sake and for her own. She loves him and just wants him to beat this so they can build their relationship again, but she’s not prepared to put up with the booze and drugs for another day.”
