Sharon Osbourne

911 Tape ...

A Clue to the Split?

EXCLUSIVE

0417-sharon-osbourne-911The Sharon Osbourne 911 tape -- where she desperately calls a dispatcher asking for help after a candle at her home lit a table on fire -- may be a clue to the marital strife that led to their split.

We've re-listened to the tape -- recorded January 17 at 4:45 AM -- and you hear Ozzy at the beginning, sounding somewhat incoherent. It's possible Ozzy was no different than normal, but we now know he's only been sober for around 45 days after 1 1/2 years of abusing drugs and alcohol, so that would mean he was using at the time of the 911 call.

So here's what we have. Someone lit a candle and then carelessly let it burn. Ozzy was off the wagon. It was 4:45 AM.  Sharon sounds like she's the one who was blindsided.

On the other hand ... Sharon told TMZ shortly after the incident that SHE was responsible.

Was it Sharon's fault or was she covering up for Ozzy?

I did wonder why Sharon wanted the fire department there after they put out the fire. Maybe she just wanted them to look at Ozzy. There is no way to tell what really happened, but maybe she is afraid for her safety around him. Maybe she thinks he will burn down the house with her in it, so she ran away to Mexico.


It doesn't make sense for her to go to sleep and leave candles burning in the first place. People usually put them out first, especially if they are in another room.

I do noy like this woman BUT she is smart to get out fromm under this drug thing. It is without a doubt that he set the house on fire and she covered for him because she is an enabler. SHe should bhave walk when he started using again and yr and a half ago. She is at the age where this nonsense shouold be over with but sher can bet her last dime that since his he going on tour that he will be fkd up the whole time. He is an asshat when he is on drugs and booze so it looks like he will be flying solo until he gets it right and ten to one says we will be hearing about Ozzies overdose shortly. HIs body has been beaten up for too many years to withstand anymore drugs. Looks like sharon is going to be a rich widow soon.

Really, we should just let Ozzy be his last chance to be a bit listenable was when he had Randy Rhodes

I don't drink or use but if I was faced with spending what was left of my life with Sharon Osbourne I think I would head for the nearest bottle and find an all-purpose drug dealer and keep 'em coming.

I would guess, the problem is communication. I haven't been able to understand Ozzy since 1956.

Sharon very clearly stated on her show, "The Talk" that she was responsible for leaving the candle burning.
