Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are NOT exploiting their split or embellishing their marital problems to help their careers, despite an absurd tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “ridiculous.”

As Gossip Cop reported, the couple broke up earlier this month after 33 years of marriage amid rumors Ozzy had allegedly cheated. But now according to the National Enquirer, Sharon is milking the situation to make money and create publicity for both of them. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Sharon’s ripping a tune from Beyonce’s songbook and capitalizing on her marriage woes to boost her career.”

The magazine goes on to speculate that Sharon, who still manages Ozzy’s band Black Sabbath, is using her marital issues to drum up more interest in the upcoming 20th anniversary of Ozzfest. “Sharon’s a shrewd businesswoman,” the outlet’s dubious insider adds. “She’s not above spinning her private drama into career gold.”

Despite how preposterous the tabloid’s story seems, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the former couple, and we’re exclusively assured they aren’t trying to financially benefit from their marriage struggles. We’re further told the outlet’s claim is simply “ridiculous.” Additionally, the tabloid’s premise is entirely flawed, as there’s no good reason to believe that the Osbourne’s breaking up could help sells seats in an arena.
