OZZY OSBOURNE Relapses, Claims To Be Sober Now, But Is He Divorcing Sharon?

We have some not so shocking news! Ozzy Osbourne has announced that for the last year and a half he has been drinking and taking drugs. He also admits to have been an a&*hole to his loved ones. Here is Ozzy's open letter to his fans in which he also clarifies that he is NOT divorcing Sharon:
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole 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 apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

"God Bless,"

- Ozzy
We have to hand it to Ozzy for being so honest! Get well soon Ozzy, we love you!
