Yesterday, we reported the shocking news that Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne have separated after 33 years of marriage. The rumor is Ozzy was kicked out of the house after Sharon found text messages that showed he was cheating on her with a celebrity hair dresser named Michelle Pugh.
Yesterday, in the initial report, it was believed that the Prince of Darkness was holed up in the Beverly Hills Hotel, but a new report from New York Post's Page Six refutes that report. The Page Six report also states Ozzy's son Jack has been frantically trying to get in touch with Ozzy to no avail. He's even tried to reach out to Michelle Pugh. According to the report:
Pals said Ozzy’s children tried to contact stylist Michelle Pugh to see if their dad was with her but she did not turn up for work on Saturday.
A source said: “Jack tried to get hold of Ozzy because he thinks he might talk some sense into him.
“He and his sisters Kelly and Aimee are worried about him and a bit shocked by what has gone on.
“But Sharon is in an unforgiving mood and does not want him in the house, so it’s a difficult position. Sharon has got a fiery temper, but after a row, they often kiss and make up.
“It is a bit different this time, though, and she is extremely angry with Ozzy.”
Our source explained: “Ozzy is in a hotel somewhere and has taken his credit cards and some money with him.
“But he is not brilliant on his own and is a bit like a puppy — he goes missing but then usually turns up sooner or later.”
Friends fear Ozzy, who has battled alcohol and drugs, could fall off the wagon.
I hope for Ozzy's sake that he does not go back to booze, but this just seems like an unfortunate situation for all involved.
Update: Shortly after this post went live, Ozzy's official Twitter account tweeted that he and Slipknot have a special announcement this Thursday. We're positive Ozzy didn't tweet it himself, but allow us to speculate on what the announcement is.
Update #2: Despite the report from Page Six causing everybody to worry, fear not… Ozzy has been found. Gossip blog Just Jared reports the Prince of Darkness was seen in public walking with one of his dogs. Meanwhile, Sharon took a day off from her talk show, The Talk. It will be interesting to hear what she has to say when she comes back. Here's a photo of Ozzy out and about in LA:
Update #3: Ozzy has since offered comments saying that he has not fallen off the wagon.
