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.

Who started the fire?

  • Sharon
  • Ozzy
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?

Who cares? He is sober now. Was Ashley Green drunk or on drugs when her condo burnt?

Ozzy put the fire out according to Sharon. He wasn't that wasted or he would have tried to jump over/through the fire instead of putting it out.

LMFAO, I so do adore TMZ when they are grasping at straws. If Sharon told you she was at fault, why not just leave it at that? It's not like the house burnt down or anyone died. TMZ is not the California Police Department, although, I'll give you guys credit sometimes you have more info than they do and make better judgments which isn't saying much for the LAPD.

Please don't try solving issues that will only screw things up for them, I'm sure the Insurance Co has been involved and the issue is beng taken care of. Accidents happen, leave things alone and leave Sharon and Ozzy alone. Hoping for the best for The Osbournes.

Who is more likely to light a candle between a man or a woman? (Really? You have to ask that?) And how is a candle fire relevent to Ozzy's alleged relapse? Is today a slow day TMZ?

As a codependent it would not be unusual for Sharon to impulsively take the blame. I'm glad to see she's regained her composure. I'll bet she went back to Al-Anon.

This is just a bump in the road. They've been together for way too long and gone through way too much to toss in the towel. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
