Woman Sues Kelly Osbourne for Shaming Her Over Ozzy Osbourne Affair; Sharon Addresses Ozzy’s ‘Sex Addiction’
Earlier today, we reported that Ozzy Osbourne issued a statement apologizing to hairdresser Michelle Pugh and other women he's had "sexual relations with" over the past few years while being unfaithful to his wife Sharon. Now comes word that Pugh is suing Ozzy's daughter Kelly for publicly shaming her over the affair. Moreover, Sharon addressed the topic on her show The Talk, saying she's proud that Ozzy admitted he had a "sex addiction."
As you may recall, when news of Ozzy's alleged affair broke, Kelly Osbourne publicly outed Michelle Pugh, tweeting, "Anyone looking for cheap chunky LOW-lights a blow out and a b---job call [Pugh's phone number]." She also accused Pugh of "elder abuse," saying she took advantage of her near-70-year-old father.
In her lawsuit, as reported by TMZ, Pugh claims that she had a romantic relationship with Ozzy from 2013 until May 2016. She says that she has been defamed and emotionally damaged by Kelly's social media posts, adding that she has lost business as a celebrity hairstylist as a result of Kelly's actions. Specifically, Pugh alleges she was "slut-shamed, bullied and harassed."
Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne addressed Ozzy's infidelities on today's episode of her show The Talk, stating, "He's [been] going to outpatient for sex addiction for the last 3 months and after the Black Sabbath tour, he goes into inpatient for 3 months."
"It's hard because it affects the whole family and it's quite embarrassing to talk about," she added. "Drugs and drinking is more acceptable, but when it's somebody who has a sex addiction, it's more embarrassing. I am proud [Ozzy] has come out and admitted it finally. It's very very hard. Every person who comes in the room thinks, 'Oh, don't come in, he's here.' He should call Tiger Woods for some advice."
Sharon's statements follow a People magazine article in which Pugh opened up about her relationship with Ozzy, saying she truly was in love with him, and Ozzy's rep responding, "He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context. He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy."
In a statement to Us Weekly, Ozzy himself said, "Over the last six years, I have been dealing with a sex addiction. I am mortified at what my behavior has done to my family. I thank God that my incredible wife is at my side to support me.”
