Singer apologises to family, friends and fans.
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs,” posted Ozzy in a statement Monday evening. "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.”
The statement comes amid rumours that he and wife Sharon, who have been enjoying marital bliss (more or less) for 31 years, are splitting.
"Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing,” said Ozzy. "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, Ozzy.”
A spokesperson for Sharon said the band were staying apart due to their overwhelming work commitments. Black Sabbath are currently preparing for the launch of their world tour in support of upcoming album "13".

Online campaign started to have Black Sabbath frontman knighted.
"Ozzy has been an inspiration to many great musicians over the last 40 years" says Helen Maidiotis, originally from Sydney. "He is a credit to his country and I believe that a knighthood for Ozzy is one well deserved and long overdue.”
Maidiotis set up a campaign over causes.com, which has already been signed by over 200 people. She is also supporting her efforts with a facebook page. Originally petitioning to have all the founding members of Black Sabbath considered for knighthoods, she has now chosen to focus her efforts solely on Ozzy.
What do you think? Will you be signing the petition? Does Ozzy Osbourne deserve a knigthhood?
