Ozzy Thought He’d Lose Family During Relapse

Ozzy Osbourne has opened up in a new interview with the U.K.’s NME about his relapse into drug and alcohol abuse last year as well as his temporary separation from wife and manager Sharon Osbourne. Ozzy revealed last April that he had been abusing drugs and alcohol for 18 months, which led Sharon to move out of their home until he took steps to get sober again. He eventually did and the couple reconciled.

The Black Sabbath frontman revealed that when Sharon found out he was using drugs again, “She was very pissed off. I thought I was gonna lose my family at one point . . . she just said, ‘Look, I’ve got my own thing going on, and I can’t deal with you any more. Get the f*** out. Sort yourself out, then we’ll talk.’ I don’t blame her in the slightest.”

Asked what triggered his relapse, Ozzy said, “For no reason at all, you’ll suddenly think, ‘I fancy a drink,’ and your head will say, ‘Let yourself have one.’ Next thing you know you’re scraping yourself off the garage floor three days later . . . it’s a disease of the mind and body, and you can’t control it.”
