Sharon Osbourne recently revealed she and Ozzy were "living apart" but wouldn't say why. Now Ozzy admits what was going on.

Recently, both Ozzy and Sharon were photographed without their wedding rings and rumor had it that Ozzy was in a rented house and she was living in a plush hotel just two miles away from Ozzy.

In a posting on Ozzy Osbourne's official Facebook page yesterday, he explains what's going on.

Ozzy said quote, "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an A-hole to the people I love most, my family. However I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I'm just trying to be a better person. I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my bandmates for my insane behavior during this period...and my fans."

Black Sabbath will hopefully regroup and be better than ever for their new record, 13 and their tour which is shaping up nicely.
