Ozzy Osbourne: "Sharon and I are not divorcing"

Ozzy Osbourne wants to set the record straight about his marriage and his personal health.

Amid reports that he and Sharon Osbourne, 60, were headed for a divorce, the 64-year-old rocker took to Facebook to clear things up: "Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing."

He also opened up about his struggle with alcohol and drug abuse, writing: "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place...However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober," before concluding with: "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."

The couple have been married for more than 30 years and have three children together. On Monday, their son, Jack Osbourne, called the break-up reports bogus, tweeting: "Last time I check a lot of British news papers weren't amazing sources of accurate information. Moving on..."

British tabloids had suggested that the Osbournes were living apart, sparking reports of a split.
