Legendary frontman Ozzy Osbourne tells GQ expose how he regrets when he cheated on his wife Sharon back in 2016.
“I’ve done some pretty outrageous things in my life but I regret cheating on my wife. I don’t do it anymore,” says Osbourne. “I got my reality check and I’m lucky she didn’t leave me. I’m not proud of that.
“I was pissed off with myself, but I broke her heart.”
Ozzy and Sharon are making plans for their 40th wedding anniversary in 2022. Ozzy received a scary health diagnosis early in the year. It was publicly announced that Ozzy Osbourne has Parkinson’s disease and has been battling the disease since 2018.
“It’s Parkin’s II, which is a form of Parkinson’s,” Sharon explained. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. It’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
On lockdown in 2020 and how it’s impacting his mental health Ozzy said:
“I bought an air rifle and I’m shooting pellets at the wall every day, I’m getting through 10,000 pellets a week. Bang, bang, bang. In the past I shot everything you could shoot… Cows, sheep, calves, pigs, all kinds of things, dogs… A dog. One dog.”
“Not on purpose,” he explains. “It was in a lot of pain and I put it out of its misery. It’s not like I go dog hunting at night.”

When Ozzy was asked if the scene in Motley Crue’s The Dirt album where he snorted a line of ants was true, Ozzy said “That’s very possible, but I can’t remember.”
I’m not sure what the health impacts would be for snorting a line of ants, but I think I’ll pass on trying it myself.
