Ozzy Osbourne has spoken out about the moment he tried to kill his wife Sharon in 1989.

The Black Sabbath star had taken drugs and attempted to choke his wife, before being arrested for her attempted murder. He woke up in jail, having no memory of the incident.

Speaking in a new documentary, The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, the rockstar said of the incident (according to The Sun): ‘I felt the calmest I had ever felt in my life. I was just peaceful. It’s not exactly one of my greatest achievements.’

He added: ‘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 arrest, Ozzy spent six months in rehabilitation, and Sharon decided to stay with him, especially for the sake of their children – Kelly, Jack, and Aimee.

Sharon added: ‘Thank God the judge put him in treatment for six months. I had time to really think about what he should do. 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, 71, and Sharon, 67, have been married since 1982 and are still going strong.

The former X Factor judge has been supporting her husband as he suffered a string of medical issues last year.

The legendary musician had a difficult time with his health after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s, having a fall, neck surgery and being hospitalised with the flu. 

He revealed that at one point he was suffering so much he thought he was dying and was convinced the doctors weren’t telling him how bad his condition was. 

However, most recently, Ozzy has been pictured smiling in a snap with his whole family.

In the snap, the star – who shared his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis earlier this year – posed alongside Sharon, son Jack, Jack’s girlfriend Aree Gearhart, and Jack’s kids Pearl, nine, Andy, five and Minnie, two.

Sharon captioned the photo ‘summer vacation 2020’, which Jack also shared on his Instagram, along with the caption: ‘Vacation vibes! #summer2020.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne for comment.
