Sharon Osbourne has proven in so many ways that she is not the kind of woman who gives up what she wants. She has shown through her many successful ventures that life offers you nothing unless you take it for yourself. But more importantly, her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne, which has continued despite all the adversities, is proof that no matter what life throws at her, she will simply shake it off and move on.
With an influence that knows no bounds, Sharon is a very talented and experienced music manager, promoter, media personality, television presenter, television talent competition juror, author, modern impresario, and businesswoman.
Sharon Osbourne Age (Bio)
Sharon Rachel Levy was born in Brixton, London, on October 9, 1952, the son of music promoter and rock and roll entrepreneur Don Arden and his wife Hope Arden. Her parents were Jewish, and as such, she became a practicing Jew. She is of Russian-Irish descent and has a sibling, a brother named David.
Sharon did not have a very rosy childhood, because her father Don was a very violent person and did not spare his daughter one bit in his many outbursts of rage. To make matters worse, her mother Hope took a rather indifferent attitude towards her husband’s alcoholism and her daughter’s abuse.
She started her entertainment life by working with her father in his business as owner and manager of Black Sabbath. After her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne, she took over his management and has not left the industry since. She managed to make Ozzy Osbourne a household name and this opened the doors to her own management company, which she called Sharon Osbourne Management. Her company successfully manages a number of other artists.
By 2002 Sharon Osbourne had achieved celebrity status and successfully negotiated a contract with MTV, which gave her family their own reality show called The Osbourne’s. The show was successful and brought the family worldwide popularity and a higher standard of living considering how much they paid for the show. At the show, she also managed her daughter Kelly and led her to her own success as an artist.
Sharon took advantage of the fame she gained from the family show and tried her own – the Sharon Osbourne Show, which only ran one season from 2003 to 2004. But since she had been involved with music since childhood, she was invited to be a juror for the X-Factor show from 2004 to 2007. This year she also became a juror for America’s Got Talent.
To diversify and better prove her worth, Sharon Osbourne didn’t stop managing talent and being a reality TV star, she rounded it all off by writing her own books, which she did just as well. She wrote Sharon Osbourne Extreme: My Autobiography in 2006, Survivor in 2008, and Unbreakable in 2014. She also hosted a show.
From her teenage years to the present day, Sharon Osbourne has always had something to do and has never been one to sit around idly. Not only has she worked, but she has made sure that her accounts were well managed to avoid the bad conditions in which she grew up, where her father earned a lot of money but ended up wasting it on drinks and leaving his family in poverty. This has certainly paid off because the excellent presenter and reality TV star sits on a fortune of 220 million dollars.
She had a lap band operation in 1999, during which she lost dramatically over 100 pounds. And in 2002, shortly after The Osbournes began broadcasting, Sharon was diagnosed with colon cancer, which she was told had already invaded her lymph nodes. She underwent another operation and survived the disease, although she was initially told her chances of survival were slim. Shortly after her recovery in 2004, she began the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program.
In the beauty department, there is no doubt that the reality TV star is a beautiful woman, given her height of 1.5 meters and the excellent fashion sense with which she adorns herself. Despite all this, she has admitted that she uses cosmetic surgery to improve her appearance and appearance.
Her Husband and Divorce
Since her youth, Sharon Osbourne had been associated with only one man, her husband Ozzy Osbourne. The two met when she was 18 and managed artists together with her father. At the time, Ozzy was the lead singer of the Black Sabbath band, which was managed by her father Don. When he was finally expelled from the group, she took over his management as a solo artist and the two of them started dating against their father’s wishes, who really tried his best to keep them apart.
On July 4, 1982, the lovebirds married in Maui, Hawaii, and their union was blessed with three children but was also plagued by a number of ups and downs, mainly related to drug abuse, alcohol, and violence. At one point it was reported that Ozzy had made his wife a punching bag and even knocked out her front teeth. The drama between the two became a cause for concern after Ozzy was arrested for attempted murder when he almost strangled her in one of his drunken veils. The crime landed Ozzy in a rehabilitation center. Sharon once said on a show with The Talk Panellist that she caught Ozzy in bed with two of her nannies.
After many years of persistence in their marriage, it came as a shock to many when the cult duo announced that they would divorce in 2016 after 33 years of being together. It was claimed that Sharon had caught Ozzy cheating with her hairdresser again and could not take it anymore. A few months later, however, she announced her reconciliation on the program “The Talk”. Her reconciliation brought hope to many of her fans, who see in her association the true definition of “for better or for worse, till death do us part”.

Sharon and Ozzy have three children, all of whom are active in the world of entertainment and are doing quite well in their different fields. The first of the brood is Aimee Osbourne, the oldest of Sharon and Ozzy’s children. She is a musician and actress and was born in London on 2 September 1983. She is not married and was only connected with Rai Thistlewayte through an affair that started in 2004 and ended in 2005. Her popularity is mainly based on the fact that her parents are popular.
Next is Kelly Osbourne, whose life seems to be the most exciting. She was born on 27 October 1984 and is a singer, songwriter, actress, television presenter, and fashion designer. She is said to have accumulated a net worth of over 15 million dollars.
The last and youngest of Sharon Osbourne’s children is her only son Jack Osbourne, born on November 8, 1985. He is an English media personality, married to Lisa Stelly, with whom he has three children. They announced their divorce on 18 May 2018.
