Sharon Osbourne admitted that she partially ‘blamed herself’ for her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s infidelities earlier on in their marriage.
The 62-year-old former X Factor judge has been married to the legendary rock star for 38 years but recently admitted that she hadn’t always been there when Ozzy needed her.
Although their marriage came with some difficulties, the iconic couple have always worked through their differences and have remained together.
The Black Sabbath frontman has since admitted that he “regrets” cheating on his loving wife, but Sharon explained that it wasn’t just down to him because she sometimes hadn’t been there to hold his hand.
Despite feeling “hurt, pain, humiliation and embarrassment,” Sharon had vowed not to succumb to divorce following the heartbreaking scandals.
“It is a really, really tough call,” Sharon said on The Talk, according to The Daily Star.
“It is like ‘hey obviously it is not working because you would not do this.'”
The mum of three then went on to explain that she was ‘not there when Ozzy needed her’.
“Then you look back and you have to take some of the blame too: working a lot, not there when he needed me.”
She added: “When you are used to having someone holding your hand, your whole career at your side, it is very hard when they are not there.
“I was to blame for that. You don’t trust.”
While Sharon admitted that she carried some of the burden, it had also taken her years to overcome the pain of her husband’s infidelity.
Despite that, Sharon has vowed to keep her head up and continue working on her enduring romance.
She continued: “But you know if you love them still, even through the hurt, pain humiliation, the embarrassment, everything that goes along with it and all of that, you choose to stay, hold your head up and go: ‘okay I am staying.'”
Ozzy and Sharon tied the knot in 1982 and share three children together.
However, the pair also briefly split in 2016 for a few months after reports surfaced that Ozzy had been unfaithful with hairstylist, Michelle Pugh.
Sharon then forgave Ozzy on The Talk and the couple actually went on to renew their vows in Las Vegas.
At the start of 2020, Sharon’s husband revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and bravely battling the disease alongside the support of his family.
