According to Sharon Osbourne‘s candid new autobiography, Unbreakable, the wife to Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, manipulated Ozzy to get his crap together during his 18-month relapse into drugs by threatening him with taking his money right after their brief split around the time of their 30th wedding anniversary.
Classic Rock Magazine reports that Sharon stated in her autobiography that she “would never have imagined” that their anniversary would be the beginning of one of the “worst periods in their turbulent marriage.”
“I’d like to tell you he got me a vast bouquet of flowers and took me for a candlelit supper… But I’m married to Ozzy Osbourne, whose capacity for f**king up is legendary,” said the woman who claimed she once slept with Jay Leno. “Something snapped. I thought ‘I can’t carry this sh*t any more. It’s what I have always done – and I’m tired.
“I said ‘I want a divorce.’ I was expecting him to be mortified, but his reply was something like a sneer. I said, ‘I am serious. I want half of everything; that is my right. I also want £100,000 a month,” continued Sharon. “I knew money was Ozzy’s Achilles heel, and the thought of losing it might have more impact than the thought of losing me. ‘No f**king way. Over my dead body,’ he said.”
