Yesterday, the Sun reported that in the wake of Ozzy Osbourne’s apparent split from Sharon Osbourne, he was staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but had been in touch with his children. However, that was yesterday, and today, Page Six (via The Sun) is reporting that the 67 year-old is missing, and son Jack Osbourne is desperate to talk to his father but can’t find him. The tabloid reports that Jack thinks he might be able to talk some sense into Ozzy, but Sharon is “in an unforgiving mood” and is extremely angry with him.
The report claims that Ozzy is no longer staying at the Beverly Hills Hilton, and is at a different hotel, quite possibly with Michelle Pugh, the hairstylist that he reportedly had an affair with who didn’t show up for work on Saturday:
“Ozzy is in a hotel somewhere and has taken his credit cards and some money with him. But he is not brilliant on his own and is a bit like a puppy — he goes missing but then usually turns up sooner or later.”
One place he does plan on turning up is at a press event later this week. Both Slipknot and Ozzy will be making a special announcement on Thursday at Noon at the Palladium. That suggests a number of things:
- There could be an Ozzfest happening, or perhaps an Ozzfest/Knotfest combination show
- Maybe it’ll be an actual tour, as opposed to a destination fest
- This could all be a big publicity stunt, but
- Probably not, as an event like this has been in the works for some time
Either way, we’ll certainly have to hear something soon about what’s going on with Ozzy. There’s too much at stake now. Here’s hoping he hasn’t relapsed and at the very worst case, we’re gossip-mongers repeating rumors.

[UPDATE 5:22 pm] Justjared.com reports that Ozzy has been seen with one of his dogs in Los Angeles. He’s OK. Sharon Osbourne, however, took the day off from The Talk, and host Julie Chen addressed her absence, stating “Before we get started, as you can see, Sharon is not here today. There were many tabloid headlines this past weekend about her and Ozzy. Rumors and speculation that they have split up after nearly 34 years of marriage. Sharon understandably took today off. We are sending all of our love to her and her family and we ask that you do the same.”
