Rumors have been circling the Internet for days about a supposed split between “Prince of Darkness” Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon, but their son Jack is coming forward saying his parent’s 31-year marriage is in no danger.
Even though his mother, father and sister Kelly did not publicly address the rumors at first, Jack went to his Twitter account to set the record straight on Sunday:
“…it’s all bulls**t. Last time I check a lot of British news papers weren't amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on...," he wrote on Monday.
After reports cited the Osbournes living in separate homes, the speculation about the couple’s marriage fizzling began.
The UK’s Daily Mail said there was video footage “The Talk” host “moving into a new home” and Sharon was also apparently photographed without her wedding ring during a lunch date with daughter Kelly.
Britain’s Daily Mirror used similar images of Sharon in a moving van, but cited financial woes, including a large tax bill, as the cause of the Osbournes' supposed split.
According to TMZ, the two are living apart while their Beverly Hills home is getting renovated. While Sharon is shacking up in a hotel, Ozzy is residing in a rental property nearby.
But the legendary rocker won’t be staying there for long. The 64-year-old is embarking on a world tour with his band Black Sabbath that starts in New Zealand Saturday.
A spokesperson for Sharon released a statement on Monday saying the two were not headed for divorce:
“They’ve both got huge work commitments. She is at the hotel for work and he is starting his Black Sabbath tour. Of course they row, but they are still together. Sharon and Ozzy have spent long periods of time apart before when she was working in the UK. The marriage is not on the rocks.”
.it's all bullshit. Last time I check a lot of British news papers weren't amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on...
