Scoop: Sober Ozzy’s not missing; no word from Sharon

Never fear, fans… Ozzy’s Osbourne back.

The rocker resurfaced after going missing amid reports that wife Sharon Osbourne had kicked him out of the house for allegedly having an affair with a hairstylist, E! News reported Monday.

He notably didn’t look like he’d been near a hairstylist in ages, though. His mane was messy as he walked through streets of Los Angeles carrying his dog on Monday.

Despite rumors of divorce, the solemn-looking rocker was wearing his wedding ring.

He also wanted to dispel rumors that he’d fallen off the wagon.

“I have been sober for three-and-a-quarter years,” he told E! News. “I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”

On Sunday, newspapers in London reported that Sharon, 63, had given Ozzy, 67, the boot after finding out he had an affair with 45-year-old Los Angeles stylist Michelle Pugh.

Meanwhile, Sharon was absent from Monday’s episode of “The Talk.”

Her co-host Julie Chen told People: “Sharon understandably took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and to her family, and we ask that you do the same.”


We think it’s safe to say Kaley Cuoco got the better end of the deal in her divorce settlement with tennis pro Ryan Sweeting.

The “Big Bang Theory” actress is keeping the fortune she’s reaped from the hit show.

TMZ reports that Cuoco’s prenuptial agreement was the key to her success. Months after she and Sweeting married in 2013, she reportedly signed a $72 million contract — $1 million an episode for 72 shows — which is protected under the prenup.

She’s also getting two homes: one in Tarzana, and one in the Santa Barbara area.

Sweeting’s apparent parting gifts are a lump sum of $165,000 and any cash and gift certificates he has in his possession.

She’s also being a sport in picking up a $195,000 tab for her ex’s two personal trainers.
