A hairy situation. Ozzy Osbourne was having an affair with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh, a source tells Us Weekly. As previously reported, the rock star’s rumored indiscretions may have led to his wife, Sharon Osbourne, calling it quits on their relationship after nearly 34 years of marriage.
A source claims to Us that Pugh “was one of Ozzy’s mistresses” and is a colorist at the posh Meche Salon in Beverly Hills.
On the Tuesday, May 10, episode of The Talk, Sharon, 63, confirmed her split from the Black Sabbath singer, 67. The British TV personality sipped on a glass of lemonade as she addressed her marriage drama in front of the show’s studio audience. (Ahead of her appearance on Tuesday, Sharon's daughter Kelly posted an Instagram of herself holding lemon in front of her right eye. "Guess who's turning 🍋's into #lemonade?" she captioned the pic.)
"I've been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know what's going on," Sharon explained. "I don't need to read about it and see about it because it's like putting salt in a wound. So I don't need to."
"I honestly cannot thank people enough for their backing me. For saying they love me. For everybody here at my home, supporting me, sending me messages of love," she continued. "I honestly am empowered and I have found this inner strength and I'm like right. OK. What's next?"
The mom of three also revealed that she kicked Ozzy out of the couple’s Beverly Hills home. “It’s true,” she said with a laugh, but then admitted that the musician has returned, forcing Sharon to find refuge away from the couple’s mansion. "He's back and I'm out of the house," she noted.
Ozzy has cheated before. Back in March, Sharon said on The Talk that she once caught him in bed with two nannies.
The pair wed in 1982 and share two daughters Aimee, 32, and Kelly, 31, and son Jack, 30. The family — with the exception of Aimee — appeared on MTV’s hit reality series The Osbournes, which aired for four seasons from 2002 until 2005.
Us Weekly has reached out to Ozzy’s rep and to Pugh for comment.
Correction: A previous version of this story reported that a source claimed Pugh had been fired from Meche Salon. However, Pugh is still employed there.
