Ozzy Osbourne was photographed out in public amid reports he and his wife, Sharon Osbourne, had broken up.
He was photographed carrying his dog in Los Angeles. Osburne also said that he hasn’t started drinking or doing drugs again.
“I have been sober for three and a quarter years,” he told E! News, according to a report on Monday. “I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”
Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne didn’t show up for her show, “The Talk.”

The couple has been married for 33 years. Reports over the weekend said Ozzy left their Los Angeles-area mansion over his alleged infidelity.
“There were many tabloid headlines this weekend about Sharon and her husband Ozzy, rumors and speculation that they have split up after 33 years of marriage,” co-host Julie Chen said on Monday’s showing of “The Talk,” which Osbourne helps host. “Sharon understandably took today off,” she continued, reported the NY Daily News. “We are sending all of our love to her and to her family, and we ask that you do the same.”
The couple’s marriage has been relatively tumultuous over the years, amid Ozzy’s drug addiction and alcohol abuse. The Black Sabbath singer has been mostly clean for the past decade or so, but he admitted to having a relapse in 2013, which put a strain on their marriage. At the time, Ozzy said he and Sharon were “not divorcing.” He added, “I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.”
Their marriage was also in the spotlight during MTV’s reality TV show, “The Osbournes,” which ran until 2007.
