Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed that he fell off the wagon over the past year and a half, returning to drinking an doing drugs as he recorded a new album with his band, Black Sabbath. Amid that news were rumors that he and Sharon, his wife of 31 years, were splitting up. Ozzy put a quick kibosh on that, stating on Facebook that they were in fact very much together, but Sharon has now come out and said that she didn't realize how bad Ozzy's drinking and drug habit had gotten in this most recent relapse.

Speaking on "The Talk," where she is a co-host, Sharon said "I never knew he was using prescription drugs...I knew he was drinking occasionally but I didn't realize the extent," according to People.

She noted that they are indeed not getting divorced, but that she's still very upset by these recent developments.
