In 2016, the world learned that Ozzy Osbourne had been cheating on Sharon Osbourne, his wife of more than 30 years at the time, with hairdresser Michelle Pugh. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph in 2017, Sharon disclosed details of her husband's affairs — namely that there was more than one woman. "Some Russian teenager, then a masseuse in England, our masseuse [in the States] and then our cook," she said. "He had women in different countries. Basically, if you're a woman giving Ozzy either a back rub or a trolley of food, God help you." His relationship with Michelle, however, was reportedly the longest — the two secretly engaged in a four-year affair. "When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it," Michelle told People magazine in 2016. "He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world." Ozzy, however, has insisted that his relationship with Michelle was nothing more than physical. He and Sharon briefly split but soon reconciled following the cheating scandal.
In January 2020, Ozzy Osbourne shared with his fans some upsetting news: He has Parkinson's disease. According to the Black Sabbath rocker, he found out about it after suffering a fall in February 2019. "It's been terribly challenging for us all," Ozzy told Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America." "I did my last show New Year's Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves." Wife Sharon Osbourne further explained Ozzy's diagnosis. "It's PRKN 2," she said. "There's so many different types of Parkinson's — it's not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it's — it's like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day."

Just four years after "The Osbournes" left the air, Kelly Osbourne found herself at the center of controversy. In the summer of 2008, the then-23-year-old star was arrested for slapping gossip columnist Zoe Griffin of the Sunday Mirror. The alleged assault came after Zoe wrote an article that described Kelly's former boyfriend Luke Worrall (pictured) as being stupid for not understanding what an earthquake was. Kelly was released on bail after the incident occurred, though it's unclear how the case concluded.
In 2012, Sharon Osbourne revealed that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy after finding out she had the BRCA1 genetic mutation that increases her likelihood of developing breast cancer. The talk show host had battled colon cancer 10 years earlier, so taking this precautionary measure was important to her. "As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought, 'The odds are not in my favor,'" Sharon told HELLO! magazine. "I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud. I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy." Her decision to undergo the procedure occurred the same year son Jack was diagnosed with MS and granddaughter Pearl (one of Jack's daughters with now-ex-wife Lisa Stelly) was born. "For me, it wasn't a big decision, it was a no-brainer," Sharon said. "I didn't want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl. I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It's not 'pity me,' it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."
In 2012, Jack Osbourne made headlines when he revealed he'd been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. According to the former reality star, even years later, he still has moments where wonders why this had to happen to him. "Depression is the most common side effect of sufferers with multiple sclerosis," Jack told CNN in 2016. "I don't take medication for it, but I do have bouts of it." He was diagnosed with RRMS — relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis — in 2012 after he noticed he'd gone blind in his right eye and felt unusual numbness in his legs.

A silver beauty! After sporting her signature red hair for 18 years, Sharon Osbourne finally decided to embrace her natural shade! On Feb. 17, 2020, Sharon's colorist Jack Martin took to Instagram to debut the rock 'n' roll wife's new look. "Another great day in my career welcoming the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer @sharonosbourne for a complete transformation," his caption read in part. "Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation [a] long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster."
Following their brief split in 2016 after it emerged that Ozzy Osbourne cheated with hairdresser Michelle Pugh, Sharon Osbourne admitted to drugging her husband to learn more about his extramarital affairs. "I was a broken woman," Sharon told the Sun in 2018. "He sent me an email that was meant for one of his women. Then he took his sleeping pills. I put an extra two in his drink… and asked him everything, and everything came out. He would have never told me the truth, ever. He was ashamed, afraid. I knew how long. I knew who it was. I knew what he was thinking and then, you know, you leave." Sharon, however, decided to stay with her husband. "Ozzy told me it was over with this woman and I believed him. Then, six months later, I found out it wasn't and there were others." She went on to share how she can't trust him. "I worry about that," she admitted. "I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. Nothing in the world hurts like infidelity. Nothing."
On Aug. 4, 2015, while she was a guest co-host on "The View," Kelly Osbourne sparked controversy when she made an insensitive, racist comment about Latinos. "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?" Her remark, which came during a discussion about President Trump's stance on immigration, caused a firestorm on social media, with many people using the Twitter hashtag #QueridaKellyOsbourne. Ironically, Kelly's racist comment came mere months after she opted to leave her previous role as a host on "Fashion Police," which was allegedly due to a racially charged remark made by Giuliana Rancic.
If there's one thing we can count on her for, it's being candid. Following her controversial remarks about the talent of the child contestants on the show, in September 2018, Sharon Osbourne officially announced she wouldn't be returning to "The X Factor" U.K. During an interview with Howard Stern, she addressed why she didn't partake in the show's audition segments and said, among other things, how the kids "all suck." She later took to Facebook to make her departure official. "After watching the new season #XFactor unfold, I've seen the new judges finding their rhythm and are doing brilliantly," she wrote. "Simon [Cowell] was so gracious to find me a spot on the live shows but at this point I really don't think I'm needed and I would honestly feel odd coming in at this point. So I have decided to pass on the series this year. I wish the show continued success and as much as I love to get my face on TV you will have to do without me this season."
Sharon Osbourne is no stranger to plastic surgery, but years of going under the knife have started to take its toll on her. While visiting "The Kelly Clarkson Show" in October 2019, the host of "The Talk" got candid about a recent facelift — her fourth. "I am [scared], sure, because you could wake up and look like cyclops," she told Kelly. "I had this thing where they lifted up my mouth and then for the first week I couldn't feel my mouth. I can hardly feel my mouth now to be honest with you. I couldn't find my mouth." This isn't the first time Sharon was honest about her cosmetic procedures — in her 2013 memoir "Unbreakable: My New Autobiography," she wrote that "there's not much I haven't had tweaked, stretched, peeled, lasered, veneered, enhanced or removed altogether."
Following the news of Ozzy Osbourne's infidelity, his future with wife Sharon Osbourne seemed shaky, but they've since proven that their love is stronger than ever. In 2017, Ozzy and Sharon renewed their vows on Mother's Day ahead of their 35th wedding anniversary on July 4. "For me, this was actually our real wedding day," Ozzy told HELLO! magazine. "This is the one that I will remember. Sharon and I have been through so much, and this honestly feels like a new beginning." Sharon shared the same sentiment. "It was hard to rebuild the trust, but I can't imagine my life without Ozzy," she told the outlet. "The ceremony was just beautiful. We've fallen in love all over again."
Since "The Osbournes" concluded in 2005, Kelly Osbourne has repeatedly made headlines amid her battle with addiction. Kelly, who's always been quite outspoken about her struggles with drugs and alcohol, thanked her family for their support in a touching Instagram post in 2018 when she celebrated a year of sobriety follow a devastating relapse. "This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life and I feel it's time [to] share that with you guys," she wrote. "To cut a long story short things got really dark. I gave up on everything in my life but most of all I gave up on myself. Life on life's terms became to much for me to handle. The only way I knew how to function was to self medicate and go from project to project so I never had to focus on what was really going on with me."
In December 2019, Sharon Osbourne received immense media backlash after she shared a story about how she dismissed Ozzy Osbourne's assistant after sending him into a fire. During an interview on BBC's "Why Would I Lie To You," the talk show host recounted the time she and her rocker husband lit candles in their living room, went up to bed and awoke to see their living room was on fire. During this horrific time, Sharon recalled that their assistant was asleep in the guesthouse. So I go into the guesthouse and he's going, 'Everything all right,'" Sharon said. "And I'm like, "No! House is on fire! Get out! Help! Go in, get the paintings out… There were dogs, and I said, 'You must go in to find the dogs.' After the ambulance came, the assistant was given an oxygen mask — though Sharon was opposed to this decision. "So then I said to him, 'How very dare you! You work here and you get more paintings out right now,'" she continued. "And I took the mask and I put it on my dog." Days after the event, Sharon and Ozzy were laughing about it but the assistant voiced that he didn't find it funny. "Then I said, 'If you don't think that's funny, do you think this is funny?' And he goes, 'What?' I said, 'You're fired,'" she said in the segment. Twitter was flooded with comments and posts from people who found Sharon's actions cruel and horrendous. "She risks her employees life for her material objects then disposes of him like trash. This is why I will never be a personal assistant again!" wrote one user.
Kelly Osbourne made headlines in January 2020 after false reports began circulating about father Ozzy Osbourne's health. The former reality star-turned-author took to Instagram to slam the rumors. "Today I had a wonderful start to 2020," she wrote. "I went out to lunch with my family. Then I spent the rest of the day laughing and hanging out with my dad. I come home to read sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his 'death bed,' sometimes the media makes me sick!" Kelly addressed the rumors just a few months after her father's track "Under The Graveyard" was released in November 2019.
