Ozzy Osbourne is officially out of Sharon's dog house ... and has moved back in with his wife ... after convincing Sharon he's been drug and alcohol free for months, TMZ has learned.
It's a big step for the couple, considering they split earlier this year ... when Ozzy fell off the wagon.
Sharon insisted she wouldn't take Ozzy back until he cleaned himself up -- and to prove she meant business, she moved out of the family home and into the Beverly Hills Hotel.
But now, it seems Sharon's convinced Ozzy's winning the war with his demons ... because the two not only walked the red carpet together at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (and shared a kiss) ... they also went home together after the show.
We're told Sharon is determined to help Ozzy stay off the junk -- she's even hired a "sober team" to monitor the rock star 24/7 and help him steer clear of potential hazards.
Ozzy Osbourne on Sharon
... Sorta Delusional
6/4/2013 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Good news -- Ozzy Osbourne says things are going GREAT in his effort to fix the problems in his marriage.
Bad news -- He's sorta refusing to acknowledge there were problems in the first place.
Ozzy was finishing up a grocery run at Bristol Farms in L.A. yesterday when we asked about his relationship with Sharon ... and Ozzy sounded extremely positive.
As we previously reported, the two were living apart earlier this year after Ozzy fell off the wagon and began using drugs and alcohol again. Sharon told reporters she was "devastated" by his behavior.
So it was a little baffling yesterday when Ozzy told us there was never a problem to begin with between himself and Sharon ... because we know that's simply not true.

... on a Red Carpet

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne took another step toward a possible reconciliation when the pair walked the red carpet at an event in Beverly Hills last night with their daughter Kelly.
As TMZ first reported, Sharon and Ozzy met for lunch earlier in the day. Our spies say that as the meal went along, the two got pretty cozy together.
The couple split last month and our sources say Sharon won't consider getting back together with Ozzy until he proves he is sober for good.

in Beverly Hills

In what appears to be their first public out since they split last month, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne had lunch together today in Beverly Hills ... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, the two dined at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We're told Ozzy arrived first, accompanied by another man, and Sharon arrived a short time later.
The three dined at a booth inside, with our sources saying Sharon and Ozzy did not appear "romantic" ... rather more like a business lunch ... but the two were definitely talking.
As TMZ first reported, Sharon has been telling friends she would not consider getting back together with Ozzy until he proves he's sober for good this time. Last month, Ozzy wrote on Facebook that he had been sober since early March ... so if he has stayed clean, he'd be about 2.5 months sober now.
Time will tell if that's proof enough for Sharon that Ozzy has changed his ways.
UPDATE 2:20 PM PT -- One source tells us that by the end of the lunch, Ozzy and Sharon were "cozying up together in the booth."

49 Days Sober ...
and Still Headbanging
4/22/2013 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ozzy Osbourne celebrated his 49th day of sobriety by rocking out HARD -- we're talkin' crotch-thrusting, hardcore headbanging, and running around a stage like a maniac ... and it was awesome.
Osbourne -- who's 64 years old -- performed with Black Sabbath in New Zealand on Saturday ... just days after coming clean about his private struggle with drugs and alcohol.
We broke the story, Ozzy's wife Sharon decided to separate from the rock star after learning he'd fallen off the wagon -- and said she wouldn't come back until he was sober for several months.
The ultimatum seems to be working -- 'cause he looked fresh and energized on stage.
911 Tape ...
A Clue to the Split?
4/17/2013 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The 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.
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 Won't Go Back to Ozzy
'Til He's Clean for Months
4/17/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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."
Heels in Mexico
4/15/2013 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A foot massage doesn't cure all, but it helped Sharon Osbourne a little bit as she decompressed in Mexico following her split from hubby Ozzy Osbourne.
As we reported ... Sharon and Ozzy are living separately in L.A. -- she moved into the Beverly Hills Hotel and Ozzy rented a house a few miles away.
Sharon shot down to the Esperanza Resort in Cabo this weekend, but the split was clearly on her mind. She was texting constantly and talking on the phone.
Ozzy just posted on Facebook that he's been back on drugs and the bottle for the last year-and-a-half, and he seems to be saying that caused the rift. Ozzy also says he's been sober for 44 days and is sure he can save the marriage.
It's unclear how permanent the split promises to be. As far as we know there are no immediate plans to end the Osbourne's 31-year marriage.
One source said ... Sharon and Ozzy have done this before, and it's a good bet they'll pull a Danny DeVito/Rhea Perlman and rekindle the relationship.
