Ozzy Osbourne’s former mistress Michelle Pugh speaks out
Back in early May 2016, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne made headlines when the couple allegedly split after Sharon found out that Ozzy was having an affair with hairdresser Michelle Pugh.
Pugh was recently interviewed by Peoples and spoke out on her relationship with the Black Sabbath singer.
The following are excerpts from the article / interview by Peoples:
However, Pugh maintains Ozzy, 67, was “unhappy” in his marriage and “consistently and willingly and generously” gave her “his love.”
“What attracted me to him? Chemistry,” says Pugh. “We just had it. It’s that indescribable thing in life, and you can’t deny it. And he didn’t.”
Aside from their physical relationship, Pugh says the duo also connected on an “emotional level” and would have long discussions about their “shared passions” for painting, history and current events. “My relationship was more with this really nice, sweet, funny and cool guy … John from England,” describes Pugh.
Acknowledging she is no longer in touch with Ozzy, Pugh says it’s a “struggle every day now” for her when she wakes. “I wake from my dreams, which some nights he’s in, and for a minute when I wake I’m peaceful,” she says. “Then the absence sets in. It’s horrible.”
Even so, the hair colorist says she has no ill will towards her former lover.
“He is a grown man. He is capable of making the decision to be with me. If he has chosen to not be, that is fine. I accept it and move on,” she says. “But he has been my best friend for the last few years, so of course I am grieving the loss for that.”
“I still love him,” continues Pugh. “And I would never exploit the truly personal and private parts of what we had. That’s not me. I’m going to stand tall and proud and say, ‘This is me. I’m not ashamed.’ I fell in love with a man that gave me the love I never knew I could receive.”
