Amidst divorce rumors in the tabloids, plus a new Black Sabbath single coming out this week and a just announced Sabbath tour, Ozzy Osbourne took his Facebook page Monday evening to come 'clean.'

Here's what Ozzy posted:

For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.

Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.

I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

God Bless,


Keep it up Ozzy, we support your sobriety, and can not wait to rock with the new Sabbath record.
