Grapevine: Sharon booted Ozzy from Beverly Hills home
Sharon and Ozzy split again
Black Sabbath front man Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, Sharon Osbourne, have split again, gossip news outlets have reported. The pair, married for more than 30 years, split in 2013 because of Ozzy’s drug and alcohol problems. Sharon took him back after he got help, TMZ reports. This fight, however, seems to be related to infidelity. The London Sun is reporting that Sharon kicked Ozzy out after discovering proof that he’s been having an affair with celebrity hair stylist Michelle Pugh. According to the Sun, the Osbournes’ publicist confirmed that Ozzy was not living at the Beverly Hills family mansion. Reports also say that Pugh canceled a string of appointments this week, citing a “personal emergency.”
