Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzy Osbourne: Sharon is obsessed with showbiz

Ozzy Osbourne hates Sharon Osbourne's obsession with the ''showbiz lifestyle''.

The Black Sabbath rocker has been living apart from his wife of 31 years in Los Angeles in recent months because he has relapsed into drug and alcohol abuse.

In an interview conducted before he admitted he had fallen off the wagon, Ozzy admitted he doesn't enjoy being in the spotlight like his 'The Talk' star wife.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''Sharon's obsessed with that showbiz lifestyle. But it's not for me. Leave me out of it. Sharon's always introducing me to people I don't know or want to meet.''

The 64-year-old singer revealed that issues began arising when his family - including Sharon, 60, daughter Kelly, 28 and 27-year-old son Jack - agreed to appear on MTV's 'The Osbournes' in 2000, which chronicled their chaotic and controversial family life.

He said: ''The reality show was all Sharon's idea. I never wanted to do all that TV stuff. I was TV mogul of the day with that show and I became this thing I didn't really want to be. I can't stand seeing myself on TV. I never watched a single episode of 'The Osbournes'.

''Sharon got a career out of it but I'm not interested. I don't like showbiz.''

Despite rumours of divorce stemming from the couple living apart and being spotted without their wedding rings, the 'Changes' singer revealed this morning (16.04.13) estrangement is due to him relapsing into substance abuse.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Ozzy insisted that he and Sharon are not divorcing and apologised to his wife, family and Black Sabbath bandmates for his relapse.

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

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

''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. God Bless, Ozzy (sic)''

Black Sabbath's new album '13' - the first by the original band for 35 years - is released in June and they are due to head on tour in April.

She is obsessed with celebrity. It's not enough anymore being the wife of a rock star. She wants her own attention. You could see the really horrible effect being on film took on him almost instantaneously. No matter what she says, Sharon Osbourne doesn't care about anything as much as money. Ozzy is a tool to have it. She approaches him and his life much as you would a worker, not a mate or loved one. It's sad. I'm far from saying Ozzy wasn't a handful or difficult to be around. But she made her bed by coveting him, making it so he wasn't able to see his children and wife, breaking up Sabbath, then telling him in the devils deal that she would manage him "if." What did she expect?
