Sharon Osbourne called her and her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s fights ‘legendary,’ in a new interview, as she discussed their history and a biopic they’re working on about their life together.
Sharon Osbourne, 68, is fearlessly opening up about her rocky and violent past with her husband Ozzy Osbourne, 72. The former host of The Talk spoke to Daily Mail about her once “volatile” relationship with the rocker as well as a biopic they’re both working on about their life together, in a new video interview that was released on Sept. 14. “Our fights were legendary because we would beat the s**t out of each other,” she told the outlet in the interview.

“It stopped, must be, 20 years ago, but we had a good run,” she added.
Sharon and Ozzy got married in 1982 and started a family shortly after. They are the parents of three children, including daughter Aimee, 38, who stays mostly out of the spotlight, daughter Kelly, 36, and son Jack, 35. The British beauty said she hopes the biopic she’s working on, which will detail the good and bad times in her and Ozzy’s life, will begin filming in the spring.
“It’s a movie about Ozzy’s and my life, how we came together in the early days and our volatile relationship,” she said. “All the fights, all the makeups, all the fights, all the arrests, all the everything. And it’s a love story.”
“People are going to watch it go, ‘This isn’t allowed. They shouldn’t behave that way and put it on film’,” she continued. “But [we’re] only talking the truth. Some people have volatile relationships and ours was very volatile.”
Although their fights hit an all-time high in the late 1980s when Ozzy was accused of attempted murder for reportedly trying to strangle Sharon, the doting wife admits she also had her moments of violence. “I’ve hit guys in business and it’s like … sorry. That’s the way I was brought up,” she explained. “I famously hit a promoter – I kneed him in the crotch and then I head butted him.”
She went on to explain that the issue was over money and laughed while recalling the situation, confirming the promoter was trying to stiff her. “I got the money,” she proudly said.
As far as what caused her and Ozzy to stop the violence, Sharon said that it was a decision that came from growth. “You grow,” she said. “You grow to a stage where it sickens you. You grow to a stage where it physically makes you sick, but when you’re young and, you know, you’re fighting the world. It’s different.”
