Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne have reportedly split up. A source told E! News that the 67-year-old Black Sabbath frontman and the 63-year-old talk show personality are in agreement that Ozzy is to move out. 

The insider makes sure to note that the split is not addiction-related, as Ozzy has been sober for over three years. Their relationship has been rocky in the past due to his drug and alcohol abuse. As Us Weekly points out, an inebriated Ozzy once tried to strangle his wife and was subsequently arrested for attempted murder.

Rumors of their turbulent marriage’s decline circulated in 2013 after a dark period for Ozzy. At the time, Ozzy wrote on Facebook to clear the air that he and Sharon were “not divorcing.” 

Ozzy and Sharon met in the ‘70s because Sharon’s father, Don Arden, was Black Sabbath’s manager. Sharon would later on take on the role. In 1982 the two married in Maui, Hawaii. Later they would have three children, Aimee, 32, Kelly, 31, and Jack, 30.
