The formerly hot and heavy metal couple, Ozzy Osbourne and his wife have decided to bring their 33-year marriage to a close. Unfortunately, the two have not been able to reconcile their differences and multiple reports indicated last Sunday that the couple will be entering divorce proceedings. Reports indicate that the “Prince of Darkness” Ozzy has been residing in a Southern California hotel recently.
The controversial singer Ozzy Osbourne, who is famous for biting the head off a bat on stage in 1982, is husband to Sharon Osbourne, who allegedly initiated the divorce. Sharon was originally Ozzy’s manager after his father served as his manager. She later became his wife. The couple, and their unique family, became famous beyond rock stardom in a reality television show that put their relationship in the spotlight. The MTV television show aired from 2000 to 2005.
The 67-year-old ex-lead singer of Black Sabbath and his 63-year-old wife have been on the edge of divorce for some time. They have three children together — 30-year-old Jack, 31-year-old Kelly and 32-year-old Aimee — who also became famous as a result of their family’s MTV reality show. According to various celebrity news sources, Sharon suspects that her husband had an affair with a hairstylist.
Celebrity divorces are particularly unique in respect to the way celebrities struggle to keep their and their families’ privacy during divorce proceedings. However, any high net worth divorce runs the risk of public scrutiny, as prying eyes and gossip tend to prey on the wealthy. For this reason, divorce attorneys who take on high net worth and/or celebrity divorces must take every precaution to protect their clients’ privacy throughout the divorce process.
