As a huge fan of Black Sabbath, and his first decade of recorded albums, I really hope this doesn't end ignobly.

Unfortunately I doubt that will be the case.

The cynic in me sees this as Sharon realising that she has nothing more to gain in being married to him. Ozzys reaction being to go on a bender (lets face it thats what he's done) is priceless though.

Thats what I though when I read they had splited... hes done... its over... Records dont sell so musicians need to continue to Tour and he cant do it for much longer.

I realize I am not a touring musician, but I have a friend in a moderately successful touring band and I just don't see how he doesn't have money to fall back on. It's fuckin Ozzy man! He can't live off the residuals from the Sabbath days or his old solo stuff? Dude must have a CRAZY drug/drinking habit or Sharon took more $$ than advertised.

I told a coworker yesterday that while Ozzy has his demons in drink and drug, Sharon has hers as well - mostly related to control issues.

It doesn't surprise me that the two of them have lived together as long as they have, Sharon needing to control someone and Ozzy needing to be controlled, but sooner or later something like this was going to come between them.

Sharon worked hard to create this public persona, between the reality show and her "View" rippoff. She can't afford to be seen as weak or somehow culpable when her husband steps out on her with a hairdresser... Ozzy's aforementioned addictions notwithstanding.

My understanding is that they had an open marriage back in the day, or at least that Sharon looked the other way at all the groupie action. Whatever the case, it's hard to imagine Ozzy being capable of having an affair these days...he can barely walk.

I doubt money has anything to do with this. Sharon's always been known as a cutthroat business woman and said years ago on Howard Stern that she's got her own money. Ozzy was worth $130+ million in the 90's so I have zero doubt that Sharon was worth at $200 million at the time. Ozzy's never given a shit how much money he has and I doubt if you asked him now he doesn't have an exact figure, so whatever he has is what Sharon has allowed him to have. You don't accumulate the amount of money they have without knowing how to save more than you're spending.

This wouldn't be the first time Sharon's taken off for a bit. I've got no doubt she's had some fun on the side while Ozzy's been off being Ozzy. Those two will die together. I know I sound like a teen girl talking about her favorite celebrity couple, but I've just seen, heard and read too much from them about how much they care about each other and some things can't be faked for a camera.

Overall, I feel bad for Ozzy. Sure, it's been his choice to get as fucked up as he has, but he's definitely the product of being thrown out on the road when he should have been in a treatment facility way too many times. The guy never truly got sober, never understood why he should want to be sober and has basically been dealing with handlers or someone else taking care of all his shit. Personal responsibility goes a long fucking way.

I know that he has the tendency to go on a bender every few years or so, but part of me was happy for the guy when I heard this news. I hoped that he finally had enough of Sharon's bullshit. As far as energy to keep his career going, guy has got nothing left. The last few albums and tours, Sharon has practically had to string him up like a "Weekend at Bernie's" marionette...whatever it takes to keep the money (and her botox) flowing.

I agree and best part is she kicked him out of the house, but he was like screw it and moved back in so she left. Lets get Ozzy tom Viagra and send him to a hair dressers convention.

Apparently Ozzy made a statement that his sobriety is intact. But didn't mention anything about infidelity.

Sharon said on her TV show that she kicked Ozzy out, but he's back in the house now, and she moved out.
