Ever since Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne fell in love, their relationship has been filled with ups, downs and, of course, a lot of romance. Over the years, Sharon and her rock ‘n’ roll crooner have kept fans on their toes when it comes to their tumultuous love story.
The longtime couple first crossed paths in 1970. Sharon, who was just 18 years old, was sent by her late father, Don Arden, to look over Ozzy after his former band, Black Sabbath, was signed to her dad’s record label, Jet Records. While it took some time for Sharon and Ozzy to become a couple, they reunited in 1979 and dated for a number of years before tying the knot in Hawaii in July 1982.
At the time, Ozzy and Sharon seemed happier than ever. However, they struggled with a handful of hardships throughout their marriage, including substance abuse issues, alleged affairs and more. Unfortunately, issues persisted for many years as Ozzy struggled with drinking and erratic behavior.
Although the Talk alum stuck by her husband’s side for so many difficult years, enough was enough for Sharon by May 2016. After decades of being plagued with rumors of divorce, the pair announced they were calling it quits following 33 years of marriage.
The brunette beauty opened up about their difficult decision to end things during an episode of The Talk, which she hosted from 2010 to 2021. At the time, Sharon told her former costars she “[couldn’t] keep living like this,” but praised Ozzy for giving her “an unbelievable life” and “three beautiful children.”
It wasn’t long until Sharon and Ozzy were back together despite their mention of a divorce. Just months after the two claimed they officially split, the former Osbournes stars revealed they were giving their relationship another shot after a slight snafu.
“Everything is good. Everything’s on track,” Sharon said during an appearance on Good Morning Britain in October 2016. “You know what, my hubby … he might be a dirty dog, but he’s my dirty dog. I’ve known him since I was 18 and I’m 64 — can you believe it?”
Even though Sharon and Ozzy have been through a lot when it comes to their relationship, they’ve been able to work it out and are now stronger than ever after nearly four decades.
