Ozzy ad­mits to be­ing an ‘id­iot’ for cheat­ing on wife

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

Ozzy Os­bourne was a “f****** id­iot” to cheat on his wife Sharon.

The 68-year-old rocker split briefly from his spouse – who he mar­ried 34 years ago – last year after she dis­cov­ered he’d been un­faith­ful, and he has ad­mit­ted he is “not proud” of the “shock and shame” he caused to the Talk star and their three chil­dren.

Asked the se­cret of their good re­la­tion­ship, he laughed: “Don’t get caught with your mis­tress.”

He then added: “It’s a rock & roll thing – you rock and you roll. You take the good with the bad.

“When I was a crazy f*****, I’m lucky she didn’t walk out. Now I’m com­ing on five years clean and sober, and I’ve re­alised what a f****** id­iot I was.

“I mean, I’m still nuts, but in con­trol of it a bit more...When I said, ‘Don’t get caught by your mis­sus,’ I’m not proud of all that s***.

“I up­set my wife and I up­set my fam­ily and I made a lot of shock and shame. I love my wife, and it made me re­alise what a f****** id­iot I’ve been.”

The Para­noid hit­maker ad­mits he and Sharon have explosive ar­gu­ments and make mis­takes, and he doesn’t un­der­stand cou­ples who claim never to ex­change cross words.

He told Rolling Stone mag­a­zine: “I sup­pose it’s fair to say we love each other. I love her, and she loves me. There’s no other woman I re­ally want to spend the rest of my life with.

“You make a mis­take and you learn by it. She’s made a few mis­takes, and so have I.

“You know when you hear th­ese peo­ple go: ‘Oh, we’ve been mar­ried 35 years and we’ve never had a row.’ I go: ‘You must have been liv­ing in a dif­fer­ent f****** coun­try.

“Some­times, I’ve looked at my wife and I’ve just been an­gry as f***. Other times, I go: ‘F***, I love you.’ ”

Sharon re­cently claimed Ozzy – who has been re­ceiv­ing treat­ment for sex ad­dic­tion – had been un­faith­ful with six other women.

“He had women in dif­fer­ent coun­tries. If you’re a woman giv­ing Ozzy ei­ther a back rub or a trol­ley of food, God help you.”
