Ozzy Osbourne has denied reports that a drug or alcohol relapse led to his recent split with Sharon, his wife of 34 years.
“I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate,” he told E! News.

Since moving out of his home, Osbourne reportedly has been staying with an unnamed family member.
Assumptions that Sharon left Ozzy due to a relapse likely stemmed from in incident in 2013 when Osbourne fell off the wagon. He subsequently entered rehab and insists he has remained clean and sober ever since.
Osbourne married to Sharon in 1982 at a time when he was in the throes of substance abuse and has credited her for saving his life. He is scheduled to return to the road with Black Sabbath in June.
