Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon are back together after a brief split, following the news that Ozzy had returned to drugs after years clean and sober.

It was recently revealed that the Osbournes weren’t speaking, and that Ozzy was living in a bachelor pad in LA.

The couple’s 30-year relationship hit a crisis when Sharon discovered Ozzy was addicted to prescription medicine again and had begun drinking.

An insider told The Sun: “A month ago they weren’t seeing each other at all. He was in a rented house, she was in a hotel and they lived separate lives.

“Now Sharon is giving Ozzy another chance and has let him move back in. They are working things out.”

Ozzy took to Facebook to admit his substance problems and apologise to his family.

“I was in a very dark place and was an a**hole to the people I love most, my family. I am happy to say that I’m now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing.”

He also apologised to Sharon for his ‘insane behaviour’.

Sharon had admitted on her US TV show that the crisis had left her ‘devasted’, but insisted: “We’re not getting divorced.”

Sharon returns as a judge on The X Factor this year in a £1.8million deal.

Meanwhile Ozzy is preparing to release a new record with his now legendary band Black Sabbath, who release 13 this year.
