- Sharon Osbourne said she and her husband Ozzy Osbourne used to have “legendary” fights.
- “We would beat the shit out of each other,” Sharon said in a DailyMail TV interview on Tuesday.
- Ozzy was arrested in 1989, accused of trying to choke and kill Sharon after a series of fights.
Sharon Osbourne said she and her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, used to have “legendary” fights, some of which got physical.
In a recent interview with DailyMail TV published on Tuesday, Sharon opened up about her almost-40-year-long marriage to the Black Sabbath frontman.
“Our fights were legendary ’cause we would beat the shit out of each other,” Sharon said with a laugh.
“We stopped, must be, 20 years ago. But we had a good run,” she continued.
The longtime couple met when Sharon was still a teenager and have been married since 1982. They’re parents to three children — Aimee, Kelly, and Jack.
Seven years into their marriage, Ozzy was accused of trying to strangle and murder Sharon. He opened up about the incident in the documentary “Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne,” released in September 2020.
“I felt the calmest I’ve ever felt in my life,” he said, according to People. “It was like serenity. Everything was just peaceful.”
In the same documentary, Sharon said that the couple had “had a couple of fights” in the days leading up to the incident and she could tell it was “building to something” before Ozzy choked her while high on drugs.
“I had no idea who sat across from me on the sofa, but it wasn’t my husband,” she said. “He gets to a stage where he gets this look in his eyes where his shutters are down and I couldn’t get through to him.”
Sharon said that he told her, “We’ve come to a decision that you’ve got to die,” and started to strangle her.
She continued that she pressed the panic button on her bedside table and the police came to her rescue. Ozzy was taken into custody but he said he “doesn’t remember much” from the night.
“All I remember is waking up in Amersham jail,” the musician said. “I asked the cop, ‘Why am I here?’ and he says, ‘You want me to read your charge?’ So he read, ‘John Michael Osbourne, you have been arrested for the attempted murder of Sharon Osbourne.'”
“It’s not exactly one of my greatest fucking achievements,” he added.
Sharon didn’t press charges against Ozzy, who committed to staying sober soon afterward as a result of the incident.
