Ozzy Osbourne breaks silence after affair allegations

Ozzy Osbourne has broken his silence for the first time since he was accused of having an affair with a hairdresser.

The Black Sabbath star has reportedly split from Sharon Osbourne, his wife of nearly 34 years, over the allegations and whilst he didn't address their relationship status, he denied rumours he has relapsed.

He told E! News: "I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate."

Meanwhile, Sharon, 63, was absent from her hosting duties on chat show 'The Talk' on Monday (09.05.16) amidst the allegations.

Her co-host Julie Chen said at the beginning of the show: "As we get started, Sharon is not here today. There were many tabloid headlines of her and Ozzy, rumours and speculations that they have split up after nearly 34 years of marriage.

"Sharon understandably took today off and we are sending all of our love to her and to her family. And we ask that you do the same."

Meanwhile, Sharon - who has daughters Kelly, 31, Aimee, 32 and Jack, 30, with Ozzy - is said to have gone "ballistic" when she found "proof" of the 67-year-old musician's infidelity.

A source said: "Sharon went ballistic with Ozzy and accused him of having the affair. She said she had suspected something had been going on for some time and now had proof.

"People are wondering whether Sharon went through Ozzy's phone before accusing him. She has done that before but in the past she was checking if he'd been using drugs.

"Ozzy was extremely sheepish and admitted being close to Michelle. It is likely Sharon has discovered calls and possibly meetings.

"He is not speaking to Sharon and she has not let him back into the house. Ozzy went straight to the Beverly Hills hotel which is very near their home. He is well known there and has been there before when they've had rows."
