Monday afternoon, TMZ reported that Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon had split after 31 years of marriage.  Hours later, Ozzy posted the following on Facebook...

For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.

Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.

I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.

God Bless,
