Sharon Osbourne

I Won't Go Back to Ozzy

'Til He's Clean for Months

EXCLUSIVE

Sharon Osbourne is in the business of tough love ... because she's NOT going to reconcile with hubby Ozzy Osbourne until he proves to her he'll be sober for the long haul.

Sources connected to the couple tell us ... even though Ozzy says he's been sober for 44 days ... it's not enough for her. She's been living with this most recent bout of drug and alcohol abuse for a year-and-a-half, and Sharon is saying 44 days doesn't make that go away. 

Ozzy has admitted ... his boozing and drug use caused their split but he's confident Sharon will NOT end their 31-year marriage by filing for divorce.

Our sources say ... Sharon's intention is not to end the marriage, but she believes she has to make it clear to Ozzy once and for all ... she can't handle his substance abuse.

Sources familiar with the situation say there will be NO divorce.  As one person put it, "They've been through hell and back together.  They're not breaking up."

I don't get it... Why is Sharon rewarding him for abusing alcohol and drugs?

Ozzy, you're no spring chicken anymore and you've had a good woman by your side. Knock that crap off ! It sounds like you have too much time on your hands.

Let Ozzy party! He probably needs drugs and alcohol just to survive like we need oxygen.

Sadly this is the game of addiction that gets played over and over again in households all over the world.
.
Endless promises to stop with ongoing relapses ... or lying saying they will stop - when they haven't, just so they can keep abusing drugs and alcohol and still keep their family intact. It is the ugly reality of what life is like with an alcoholic or addict ... endless mind games and disappointments.
.
She will probably have to wait at least 6 months to see if his latest attempt to get clean and sober holds. If not, as she knows all to well, as soon as they move back in together, he will start secretly start using drugs once more. Fortunately they have a boat load of money, so living apart in comfort will not be a problem.

I hope this is true. Both the part about them not splitting up for good and the part where Sharon refuses to go back until he proves himself. I thought he was done with that stuff years ago. It never crossed my mind that he was back into it. I'm glad she is doing this. He loves her and he will fight hard to keep her. I really hope they manage to stay together. They seem perfect for each other,.

Ozzy will never fully quit, he hates sobriety. Sharon boarded the crazy train years, and years ago, and thats the way it goes
