Ozzy Osbourne Recalls Trying To Kill Wife Sharon: 'Not Exactly One Of My Greatest Achievements'

Ozzy Osbourne is opening up about how he once tried to murder his wife Sharon in 1989.

In the new documentary, The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, both Ozzy and Sharon looked back on the incident, which happened while he was on drugs.

Sharon recalled that after she put their kids to bed and she was sitting down to read that “he came into the room” with her, but she didn’t recognize him because of the drugs, she explained (via Yahoo).

“I had no idea who was sat across from me on the sofa but it wasn’t my husband. He goes to a stage where he gets that look in his eyes, the shutters were down and I just couldn’t get through to him. And he just said, ‘We’ve come to a decision that you’ve got to die.’”

Sharon added, “He was calm — very calm — then suddenly he lunged across at me and just dived on me and started to choke me. He got me down on the ground on top of me and I was feeling for stuff on the table. I felt the panic button and I just pressed it and the next thing I know, the cops were there.”

Ozzy admitted that is was “not exactly one of my greatest achievements” however, he says he “felt the calmest I had ever felt in my life. I was just peaceful. … All I remember is waking up in Amersham jail and I asked the cop, ‘Why am I here?’ And he says, ‘You want me to read your charge?’ So he read, ‘John Michael Osbourne, you have been arrested for attempted murder.’”

After the incident, Ozzy was sentenced to six months in medical detention, and Sharon weighed her options in seeking a divorce from him or not.

“I told him, ‘I don’t want the money… but if you do this again, either I am going to kill you or you are going to kill me. And do you want that for the kids?’”

Ozzy and Sharon have been married since 1982 and share three children – Aimee, Jack and Kelly.

The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne will air tonight, September 7 on A&E at 9/8c.

Just recently, Aimee opened up about why she was never a part of the family’s reality show. See what she shared…
