Sharon Osbourne saw no way out after finding out about her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s affair nearly a decade ago.
The 71-year-old revealed that she tried to take her own life after learning of the Black Sabbath frontman’s four-year affair in 2016.
“He always, always had groupies and I was so used to that,” she said during her “Cut The Crap” show last week, according to the Mirror.
“But when he knows the name of the person, where they live and where they work… it is a whole different thing as you are emotionally invested. I took I don’t know how many pills.”
She went on, “I just thought, ‘My kids are older, they are fine and can take care of themselves.’ So I took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom. The maid tried to come in to clean the room and saw me.”
The former “X-Factor” judge discovered the rocker’s affair, which lasted from 2012 until 2016, after scouring through his emails.
She soon kicked Ozzy out of their marital home, and the pair briefly parted ways.
“I’m 63 years of age, and I can’t keep living like this… I’ve been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know what’s going on,” she recalled thinking.
“I don’t need to read about or see about it. It’s like putting salt in a wound. I don’t need to… He’s back, and now I’m out of the house.”
Details of the rocker’s infidelity came to light in May 2016, and the following year, Sharon revealed that Ozzy had cheated on her with several women.
“There were six of them: some Russian teenager, then a masseuse in England, our masseuse out here, and then our cook,” she told the Telegraph at the time.
