Sharon Osbourne Apparently Drugged Ozzy Osbourne To Get Him To Confess To Infidelity

Back in 2016, Ozzy Osbourne’s unfaithfulness to his wife Sharon Osbourne was making headlines. The two eventually reconciled and renewed their vows, but now it appears there is a new twist in the story. During a recent interview with The Sun, Sharon revealed that she actually drugged Ozzy by putting extra sleeping pills in his drink just to get him to confess to his affairs.

Sharon said the following:

“I was a broken woman. He sent me an email that was meant for one of his women. Then he took his sleeping pills. I put an extra two in his drink . . . and asked him everything, and everything came out.”

She continued:

“He would have never told me the truth, ever. He was ashamed, afraid. I knew how long. I knew who it was. I knew what he was thinking and then, you know, you leave.”

Sharon went on to say she new about Ozzy’s affair with Michelle Pugh, but more came to light later on:

“Ozzy told me it was over with this woman and I believed him. Then, six months later, I found out it wasn’t and there were others. Only then did he come out and say, ‘I’m an addict. I can’t help it.'”

Ozzy then underwent treatment for sex addiction, but Sharon still doesn’t trust him:

“I don’t trust him. I worry about that. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him. Nothing in the world hurts like infidelity. Nothing.”

Ozzy Osbourne Says His “Thumb Is Fully Recovered”

Ozzy Osbourne has shared a new video message to let everyone know that his “thumb is fully recovered.” The singer previously had to postpone several shows after undergoing surgery for three staph infections in his thumb, including one that spread to his middle finger. He said the following:

“I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your concern. My thumb is fully recovered now. I am looking forward to seeing you all this New Year’s Eve at The Forum with Ozzfest.”

Ozzy Osbourne Says He Had Three Separate Staph Infections In His Thumb

During an interview with Rolling Stone, Ozzy Osbourne talked more about his recent hand infections and surgery. According to him, he had three staph infections in his thumb and one ended up spreading to his middle finger. The medical issues resulted in the cancellation of four shows, which have since been rescheduled.

Osbourne said the following:

“I didn’t feel sick, so I was cracking jokes. The doctor said, ‘I don’t know if you realize, Mr. Osbourne, this is a very serious problem you have.’ Sharon said, ‘Would you stop fucking making jokes?’ So I said, ‘Well, it’s my hand.’ The thing was, nobody was laughing. They’re all extremely, deadly serious about it. I judge it based on the expression and the body language of the doctor. If he comes in with a really solemn face, I go, ‘Oh, okay. My time to go is up.'”

He also talked about the actual procedures:

“You put your thumb in front of your face on your right hand, they went in by the side of the nail on the left side for the flesh under the nail. They cut all this stuff out. Even with the numbing stuff, it was agony. It wasn’t pus, but it was the stage after pus, when it gets in the blood and goes in your body and fucking kills you. It may sound fucked up what I’m saying to you, but he was really concerned about checking my blood.”

He also added:

“I haven’t been able to do anything. I’m right-handed. You can’t wipe your own ass. And I didn’t have many fucking volunteers who would do it for me.”

Sharon Osbourne Discusses Ozzy Osbourne’s Hand Injury, Says He Is Undergoing More Surgery Today

Ozzy Osbourne recently cancelled his remaining U.S. dates due to infections in his hand that required surgery. Now, in the below video from CBS‘ “The Talk”, Ozzy’s wife Sharon Osbourne offered an explanation for the injury and also revealed that the singer would be undergoing more surgery today (October 12).

Sharon said the following:

“[He] had a little cut on his thumb. You know when you pull the side of your nail and he just left it. And then he hit it on a door. It started to get bigger and bigger, and then his middle finger, the same thing happened … and Saturday morning we took him into the emergency room and what had happened from a tiny thing here on the side of his nail, it had turned into two different infections in his hand.

He had to have this operation where they cut the side of his thumb and this [middle] finger and they had to get rid of the infection. It’s been from something you think is absolutely nothing. It’s unbelievable.”

She also added:

“…It’s so sad for him. In this portion of his tour, he had four shows left to do in California, but his hand still hasn’t healed. And it’s one of these things that every day, they go, ‘no. Tomorrow you’re gonna be fine. La la la.’ It hasn’t been fine. And, in fact, he’s going into hospital today; he’s gonna have another procedure done on his hand. And so, we didn’t wanna keep canceling them — change it again, change it again — so we just said, ‘Okay, let’s cancel these four shows,’ and they’re all gonna be rescheduled. He will perform.”
