Sharon Osbourne claims that her husband Ozzy Osbourne had several affairs before she learned of his indiscretions thanks to a misdirected e-mail.
In August 2016, Ozzy apologized to the women with whom he has had extramarital sexual relationships and admitted to undergoing therapy for sex addiction. Ozzy's statement came out in the wake of the first interview given by Michelle Pugh, the celebrity hairstylist whose four-year affair with the BLACK SABBATH singer was discovered by Sharon and nearly ended their 33-year marriage.
But Sharon revealed in a new interview with the British paper The Telegraph that "there wasn't just one woman; there were six of them. Some fucking Russian teenager... then a masseuse in England... our masseuse out here [in Los Angeles]... and then our cook," she said. "He had women in different countries. Basically, if you're a woman giving Ozzy either a back rub or a trolley of food, god help you."
Ozzy's affair with Pugh was exposed in May 2016 after Sharon learned of the mistress by searching through his e-mails.
"We were sitting on the couch watching telly; Ozzy on one couch and me on the other," Sharon recalled to The Telegraph. "And suddenly, he sends me this e-mail. 'Why did you send me this stupid e-mail?' I asked, and when Ozzy told me that he hadn't sent me anything, I grabbed his phone and said, 'Look!' And, of course, it was a message meant for one of his bloody women."
When asked by Hello! this past spring how he got things "back on track" with Sharon, Ozzy said: "To be honest with you, it's only been recently that Sharon's been properly with me. I've damaged our relationship. But I promised her that I would stick with my sex addiction therapy. I don't want to be that person anymore. I've been doing my utmost to make amends to Sharon and to all of the family."
Ozzy is still undergoing therapy for his sex addiction and he is determined to stay the course of recovery.
"If you stop going, the little monster in your head opens one eye and it's scary," he told Hello! "You don't know your own mind. I don't like that side of myself; I hate that guy. I'm fed up of being an addict — and it's not just sex; it can be drugs, alcohol, collecting stamps, anything. There's no in between with me and it's really hard work. And the business that I'm in… it's like sitting in a cake shop when you're on a diet. I even do the sex therapy sessions on Skype now when I'm on the road."
Ozzy reportedly pursued Pugh for a year after she first colored his hair in late 2011.
Earlier this year, Ozzy told The Times that he didn't think he was a sex addict, explaining that he was just acting like a typical rock star.
"I'm in a fucking band, aren't I?" he said. "There have always been groupies. I just got caught, didn't I?
Ozzy and Sharon renewed their 35-year-old wedding vows on May 14, a date which also coincided with Mother's Day in America.
They first said "I do" on July 4, 1982.
Sharon continued to manage Ozzy's career throughout their marital crisis.
