In other news, Ozzy Osbourne has released a statement about the rumours regarding his divorce and admitted his most recent struggles with substance abuse.
Wrote Osbourne: "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole 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 band mates for my insane behavior during this period... and my fans. God Bless, Ozzy."
