Ozzy Osbourne Went Missing Before Sharon, Family Discovered His Alleged Affair

Goodbye to romance — and Ozzy Osbourne. The Black Sabbath rocker, 67, went missing in late April, just weeks before reports circulated that he had allegedly cheated on wife Sharon with hairstylist Michelle Pugh, sources exclusively reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

"Sharon thought he had gone on a walk and had some kind of medical emergency,” a family friend tells Us. Worried about her husband, who had been sober since 2013 and was diagnosed with a genetic condition similar to Parkinson’s Disease in 2005, the Talk cohost, 63, enlisted their kids, Aimee, Kelly and Jack to help track him down.

They found a clue in Ozzy’s phone, which he had left behind. “There was a number no one recognized,” says the insider. “It was Michelle’s.”

When he returned to their $10 million Beverly Hills mansion two days later, “Ozzy wouldn’t come clean about where he was,” the insider says, adding that Pugh has refused to answer any of the family’s calls. “They are extremely confused and desperate for more information."

As previously reported, the couple have split after more than 33 years of marriage. But, as a source told Us, “This has happened before. Hopefully it will blow over.”
