Their 31-year marriage was rocked at the start of the year by a relapse in his sobriety, but Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne appear to have ridden through the storm, and emerged stronger than ever.
Husband and wife put on a united front as they walked the red carpet together on Saturday night. In a public show of solidarity, Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy, 64, was pictured giving Sharon, 60, a loving kiss as they stood with their arms wrapped around each other, while she was seen tenderly fixing his hair.
Clearly touched by these little moments of affection was the couple”s daughter Kelly. The Fashion Police star”s delight was clear to see as she joined her mum and dad at the Beverly Hills event.
Hugging and laughing together, the tight-knit trio made their way inside An Evening With Women, hosted by Kathy Griffin, where Ozzy also performed (pictured).
It has been a month since Ozzy posted a public apology on Facebook revealing that he had relapsed in his sobriety. “For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs,” he said. “However, I am happy to see that I am now 44 days sober.”
He went on to apologise to his wife, family, friends and bandmates for what he called his “insane behaviour”, and firmly stated that he and Sharon were not divorcing. At the time, the couple were living apart, and both had been pictured without their wedding rings.
Things have greatly improved in the last four weeks. Prior to their evening out, Sharon and Ozzy were seen having a meal together in Beverly Hills were onlookers reported they were on “good terms”, and Kelly, 28, later tweeted a photo suggesting husband and wife had resolved their issues.
The snap showed Sharon hiding under a blanket on a chair which Kelly posted with the caption, “My mum is currently hiding from her personal trainer! Can you tell My dad & I are p****** ourselves!”
Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Birmingham-born Ozzy is planning a move back to the UK so he can be close to Sharon when she reportedly returns to the X Factor judging panel later this year.
“Ozzy loves living in LA but he knows that if he doesn”t return to England with Sharon it could be disastrous for their relationship,” an insider told the Sunday People.
“By supporting Sharon in the UK, it means they can work through their problems and she can help him with his issues.”
