Ozzy Osbourne’s former other woman Michelle Pugh is opening up about their four-year affair in an exclusive interview with People magazine.
Michelle and Ozzy reportedly started their affair in 2012, just one year after she begin coloring his hair. She said, “My relationship was more with this really nice, sweet, funny, and cool guy... John from England.”
She continued about the rocker, "When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it. He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshiped woman in the world.”
Despite knowing that Ozzy was still married, what kept her in the relationship? Pugh explained, “Chemistry. We just had it. It's that indescribable thing in life, and you can't deny it. And he didn't.”
Michelle and Ozzy were able to kept the affair quiet for years, until it was made public in May when it was announced he and wife Sharon were splitting up. After Ozzy’s affair hit the news, he put an end to his relationship with Michelle and is currently working on his marriage with Sharon, characterizing his cheating as being the result of sex addiction. Michelle shared, "He is a grown man. He is capable of making the decision to be with me. If he has chosen to not be, that is fine. I accept it and move on, but he has been my best friend for the last few years, so of course I am grieving the loss for that.”
Though she is no longer in contact with Ozzy, Pugh reiterated, "I still love him. And I would never exploit the truly personal and private parts of what we had. That's not me. I'm going to stand tall and proud and say, 'This is me. I'm not ashamed.' I fell in love with a man that gave me the love I never knew I could receive."
After her revealing confession about the relationship, Ozzy’s rep said in a statement, "He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context. He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy."
On Tuesday's episode of "The Talk," Sharon was emotional while speaking on Ozzy's sex addiction, saying, "He's been going outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months. After the tour [with Black Sabbath], he goes into inpatient for three months, and he's working at it. It's hard because it affects the whole family. And it's quite embarrassing to talk about. Somehow, drugs and drink is more acceptable, I think. But when it's somebody that has a sex addiction, it's embarrassing."
She continued, "I'm proud that he's come out and admitted it finally... I think he should call Tiger Woods for some advice." Watch!
