Sharon Osbourne is getting vulnerable about a difficult time in her life.
While speaking onstage during her Sharon Osbourne: Cut the Crap show in London over the weekend (Jan. 21), the star opened up about her suicide attempt after discovering that her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, had been unfaithful. “He always, always had groupies and I was so used to that,” she said, according to The Mirror. “But when he knows the name of the person, where they live and where they work […] it is a whole different thing as you are emotionally invested. I took, I don’t know how many pills.”
She added her children with the rockstar — daughters Aimée and Kelly, and son Jack — would be able to “take care of themselves” because they were “older” at the time. “So I took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom,” she continued. “The maid tried to come in to clean the room and saw me.”
The couple, who met at 18 years old and tied the knot in 1982, briefly parted ways in May 2016 after reports that Ozzy had been having a four-year affair with a hair stylist. The Black Sabbath star then entered rehab for sex addiction, and he reconciled with Sharon by the end of the summer in 2016. They went on to renew their vows in May 2017.
