In May, a source close to Ozzy's wife, Sharon Osbourne, told ET that the rocker had been living a "double life," and that his alleged relationship with Pugh "wasn't just a one-time hookup." Months later, Ozzy is admitting that he suffers from a sex addiction and that Pugh wasn't the only woman that the Black Sabbath singer had relations with.
“Over the last six years, I have been dealing with a sex addiction," he says in a statement to ET. "I am mortified at what my behavior has done to my family. I thank God that my incredible wife is at my side to support me."
In a new interview with People, Pugh opens up about her relationship with Ozzy, claiming he started pursuing her after she first colored his hair in 2011. "When I say he was the greatest love of my life, I mean it," she shares. "He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshiped woman in the world."
"What attracted me to him? Chemistry. We just had it. It's that indescribable thing in life, and you can't deny it. And he didn't," Pugh continues. "My relationship was more with this really nice, sweet, funny and cool guy ... John from England."
While Pugh describes her relationship with Ozzy as a whirlwind romance, he says it was purely physical.
"I’m sorry if Ms. Pugh took our sexual relationship out of context," his statement adds. "I’d also like to apologize to the other women I have been having sexual relationships with. Out of bad comes good. Since the press exposed this, I have gone into intense therapy."
During an interview with Good Morning America last week, the 67-year-old musician insisted that his marriage to Sharon was "back on track," though Pugh claims he was "unhappy" with his wife of 33 years. "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," she notes. "But he has been my best friend for the last few years, so of course I am grieving the loss for that."
Pugh admits that she still loves Ozzy and claims to have no ill will toward him. "I wake from my dreams, which some nights he's in, and for a minute when I wake I'm peaceful," she says. "Then the absence sets in. It's horrible."
