In a word: emails.
Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osborne have split, and now we’re learning everything we can about what went down. And sadly, Ozzy’s affair with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh was made known by such a common philandering misstep: leaving emails out to read! Not that I’d put it past soft, old, confused Ozzy to cover his tracks, but come ON. Sharon retraced the rock star’s digital footprints, and boom: found out about the affair AND that Ozzy was giving her sweet, sweet Black Sabbath cash. Us Weekly reports:
Pugh “was one of Ozzy’s mistresses” and was working as a colorist at the posh Mêche Salon in Beverly Hills, but “was fired last week” amid the cheating rumors. “Ozzy was supporting her,” the insider claims to Us.
“Sharon found out about the affair by searching through Ozzy’s emails. She was upset that he was supporting this woman!” the insider continues. “She and [daughter] Kelly both called the salon repeatedly for about two weeks before the news broke, trying to get in touch with Michelle. They were really angry. Sharon is the reason Michelle was let go.”
Ugh. Ozzy and Sharon have both made statements, but this still feels very real and very raw. 34 years of marriage ain’t nothing to scoff at!
