Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have split after 33 years of marriage. Naturally, with a celebrity breakup comes a number of false reports. Luckily, Gossip Cop is here to separate fact from fiction.

FACT: Ozzy moved out
The rocker has left the couple’s Beverly Hills home, and is temporarily staying at a nearby hotel.

FICTION: Ozzy is missing
The New York Post claims Ozzy has gone missing since moving out of his and Sharon’s home, and that his son Jack supposedly isn’t able to contact him. But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, and we’re told Ozzy is in communication with his family, and they’re well-aware of his location.

FICTION: Ozzy relapsed on drugs
Despite rumors spreading on social media that Ozzy and Sharon’s split may have caused the Black Sabbath frontman to start using drugs and alcohol again, Gossip Cop is assured the singer has remained clean. Additionally, questions about his sobriety weren’t a cause for the split either.

FACT: Sharon skipped Monday’s “The Talk”
Leeza Gibbons replaced Sharon on Monday’s episode of her talk show in light of the recent events. Co-host Julie Chen acknowledge the reports of a split, adding, “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.”

FICTION: Jack shaded Ozzy
Jack sent a sweet Mother’s Day message to his wife, Lisa, on Sunday, writing on Instagram, “Thanks for being the best mother/wife I could have ever asked for.” He then added the hash-tag “#YoureAllISee,” which HollywoodLife somehow interpreted as a dig at his father and reference to his alleged infidelity. But Jack was simply sending love and well-wishes to his wife, and his message had absolutely nothing to do with his parents’ split, despite the webloid’s attempt to arbitrarily link the two.

UNKNOWN: Ozzy cheated
The reports that the couple’s breakup stems from Ozzy cheating on Sharon with a Hollywood hairstylist are only rumors and speculation at this point. Gossip Cop is still working on either confirming or debunking these claims, but we will have updates as soon as we gather more information.
