Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon split after more than 33 years together, says source

Whether as partners, parents or business associates, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have been by each other's side for more than 33 years. But now, according to reports, they've decided to go their separate ways.

A source told E! News the 67-year-old rocker and the 63-year-old TV host and manager have "mutually agreed" that Ozzy would move out of the home they've shared — at least for now.

TODAY reached out for confirmation on the E! report, but didn't hear back as of this posting.

Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne, one of the enduring couples in the hard-living world of heavy metal, have split, reports said May 8, 2016. Celebrity news outlets E! News and Entertainment Tonight quoted unnamed sources as saying that the Osbournes were ending their marriage of more than 33 years.

Sharon met Ozzy through her rock manager father, Don Arden, when she was just 18. She eventually went on to become his manager herself. They married in 1982.

But this isn't the first time the couple has considered calling it quits.

In her 2013 autobiography "Unbreakable," Sharon wrote that their 30th anniversary marked "one of the worst periods" in their marriage.

After discovering he'd relapsed with drug and alcohol use after years of sobriety, she wrote, "Something snapped. I thought, 'I can't carry this anymore. It’s what I have always done and I’m tired.' I said, ‘I want a divorce.’”

But with therapy, they were able to work things out.

According to the source who spoke with E! News, Ozzy has remained sober since then.
