Sharon Osbourne Confirms Split From Ozzy Osbourne, Prepares For Divorce

by at .

Over the weekend, the celebrity gossip world was abuzz with news that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have split after 33 years of marriage.

The couple has yet to respond to reports that Ozzy moved out of their Beverly Hills home after Sharon learned that he'd been cheating with celebrity hair stylist Michelle Pugh - but their silence speaks volumes.

Sharon did not appear on her CBS panel show The Talk today, but co-host Julie Chen spoke on her behalf and basically confirmed that the rumors of infidelity are true:

"There were many tabloid headlines this weekend about Sharon and her husband Ozzy, rumors and speculation that they have split up after 33 years of marriage," Chen told her audience.

"Sharon understandably took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and to her family, and we ask that you do the same."

Obviously, she didn't come right out and say the Osbournes are ready to call it quits, but hosts generally don't take time off because of untrue tabloid reports.

Sharon and Ozzy are no strangers to rough patches, and there were rumors that she gave him the boot after he fell off the wagon back in 2013, but the 67-year-old rocker sobered up and managed to save his marriage.

At that time, Sharon addressed her marital difficulties on The Talk, telling viewers that she was "not happy," but had no intention of getting a divorce.

This time, Ozzy's substance abuse issues were reportedly not a factor, and it looks as though Sharon is preparing to move on without him. 

"Sharon has been pretty down," a source close to the situation tells People magazine.

"I don't know how much more she can take. It just weighs you down."

The insider adds that Kelly and Jack stopped by to visit Sharon for Mother's Day yesterday - and Ozzy was nowhere to be found:

"The kids were over yesterday with their kids and their other halves for Mother's Day and they had a good day," says the source.

After more than three decades of putting up with Ozzy, we assumed Sharon didn't have a breaking point, but it sounds like she just reached it.
