    Sharon confirms split with rocker Ozzy, hints at possible affair


    SHARON Osbourne has affirmed news of her separation with metal icon Ozzy and plans a long evaluation about her future.

    Sharon, who was also manager to her husband and other rockers, returned on Tuesday to her spot on the daytime show, The Talk, and was asked about reports that she booted Ozzy from their Los Angeles-area mansion.

    "No, it's true," she said, expressionless. She added that Ozzy had since returned to their former joint home, and that she, in turn, has left.

    They have been married for more than 33 years as one of the most enduring couples in the rock world.

    Sharon, 63, met Ozzy when her father was managing Black Sabbath, one of the defining bands of heavy metal.

    Sharon said she had turned off the television in recent days and was thinking about her future.

    "I honestly at this point today have no idea what I'm going to be doing with the rest of my life. I don't know where I'm going, who I'm going with," she said.

    "Because this is, like, getting to the last chapter of this book. I really want to think about... where I want to go," she added.

    The reasons for the split were unclear but Ozzy, 67, has denied that he had any relapse to his well-publicised past alcohol and drug problems.

    But in a hint that the split was linked to an affair, she took the stage of The Talk holding a glass of lemonade.

    Beyonce last month released her latest album entitled Lemonade, in which she hinted at infidelity by her husband, rap mogul Jay-Z.
