The Complete Truth about Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's Relationship!
The Black Sabbath alum has been married twice. Ozzy's first marriage with Thelma Riley was a hasty decision. Done on the spur of the moment, the singer would later call his first marriage a "terrible mistake." Ozzy and Riley's marriage sustained for over a decade nonetheless. Ozzy was a married man and a father of three, daughter Jessica and son Louis, including Thelma's son Elliot from her previous marriage, when he met Sharon.

A promising star then, Osbourne would meet Sharon, a 19-year-old girl, through her father, Don Arden, who managed Black Sabbath. Following Ozzy's exit from the band in 1979, Sharon began managing her future husband's solo career. The pair subsequently started their romantic relationship. They walked down the aisle on July 4, 1982, in Hawaii and have since welcomed three children.
The Osbourne couple alluded to a troubled relationship in 1989 when the singer, under the influence of drugs, tried to strangle Sharon. Ozzy's alcohol-fueled crime led to his arrest but didn't result in the dissolution of his marriage. Recalling the nearly fatal incident in her biography, Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, the X Factor judge wrote, "I had no idea who was sat across from me on the sofa but it wasn't my husband."
