Ozzy Osbourne: I have been sober
Ozzy Osbourne has broken his silence for the first time since he was accused of having an affair with a hairdresser. The Black Sabbath star has reportedly split from Sharon Osbourne, his wife of nearly 34 years, over the allegations and while he didn't address their relationship status, he denied rumours he has relapsed.

He said: "I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate."
Meanwhile, Sharon, 63, was absent from her hosting duties on chat show The Talk on Monday (09.05.16) amidst the allegations.
Meanwhile, Sharon, who has daughters Kelly, 31, Aimee, 32 and Jack, 30, with Ozzy, is said to have gone "ballistic" when she found "proof" of the 67-year-old musician's infidelity.
A source said: "She said she had suspected something had been going on for some time and now had proof. People are wondering whether Sharon went through Ozzy's phone before accusing him. She has done that before but in the past she was checking if he'd been using drugs. Ozzy was extremely sheepish and admitted being close to Michelle. It is likely Sharon has discovered calls and possibly meetings."
