Sharon Osbourne reveals she once drugged husband Ozzy, in a bid to learn the truth about his affairs.
The X Factor judge has been married to the Black Sabbath frontman for 36 years, but admitted that she was a broken woman after finding out about his infidelity.
I was a broken woman. He sent me an email that was meant for one of his women, she reportedly explained. Then he took his sleeping pills. I put an extra two in his drink… and asked him everything, and everything came out.
He would have never told me the truth, ever. He was ashamed, afraid. I knew how long. I knew who it was. I knew what he was thinking and then, you know, you leave.
The 66-year-old revealed the musician – with whom she shares daughters Kelly and Aimee, and son Jack – told her it was over, but she later found out it wasnt.
Only then did he come out and say, “Im an addict. I cant help it”, the Sun states she told them.
Sharon previously discussed the moment she found out about his affair with hairdresser Michelle Pugh, stating he was filling a void.
Ozzy later checked in to rehab to seek treatment for his sex addition after their affair came to light – but the ITV star admitted she still doesnt trust him.
I dont trust him. I worry about that. I dont trust him as far as I can throw him, she added. Nothing in the world hurts like infidelity. Nothing.
Sharon recently made headlines after leaving The X Factor, following an awkward interview in which she branded the show fucking karaoke.
But, despite quitting the show, she vowed there are no hard feelings between herself and pal Simon Cowell.
In fact, she revealed it was quite the opposite, claiming his company asked if she fancied a judging spot on Australias Got Talent, after quitting the ITV series.
Its just business, she previously said. He [Simon] just said, “OK, darling, whatever you want to do”, then his company Syco offered me a role on Australias Got Talent and Ive turned that down too!
So were all good. As I said, its just business.
She added: Im not desperate to be on TV. I have been offered Im A Celebrity and Strictly many times and turned those down.
We would love to see Mrs O in the jungle!
