No split with Sharon, says Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne, pictured, has confirmed he has not separated from his wife, Sharon, after internet rumours reported the pair had split up.

The Black Sabbath singer wrote on his Facebook page to clear up speculation about his 31-year marriage.

"Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I'm just trying to be a better person," he said.

"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober."

Popular showbiz gossip website Perez Hilton reported yesterday that the couple had "split-up for real", while 'The Mirror' also published a story about the couple's separation.
