Sharon Osbourne recounts depression and suicide experience

In a sad and touching narrative, Sharon Osbourne recounted her struggles with depression after discovering her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s extramarital affair.

This near-death experience almost claimed her life, as she revealed that she attempted suicide.

During her “Cut the Crap” show in London, Sharon candidly shared: “He always, always had groupies, and I was so used to that. But when he knows the name of the person, where they live and where they work … it is a whole different thing, as you are
The couple’s long-standing marriage faced a significant test when Ozzy’s affair came to light.”

Sharon shares three children with the Black Sabbath frontman.

While speaking, she expressed her belief that her kids’ “older” ages would leave them able to “take care of themselves.” With this sentiment, one cannot imagine the complex emotions she grappled with as she navigated through the aftermath of her husband’s infidelity.


Sharon recounted, “So I took an overdose and locked myself in the bedroom. The maid tried to come in to clean room and saw me.”

This goes a long way to highlight the depth of her pain and the desperate measures she felt compelled to take at that time.

On 2017 Mother’s Day, the couple renewed their vows after she found a way to reconcile with her partner who sought help for his struggles with sex addiction.

However, Sharon’s battle with depression continued to haunt her, leading her to make three suicide attempts.

A good example

Reflecting on this dark period, she bravely admitted: “I was joking about this, but I shouldn’t, talking about my depression, and it’s like, you know, saying, ‘Oh, the first time I tried to kill myself was OK, the second – all right, the third time, oy!’ But it’s like, I’m still here. I still do what I do and you struggle.”

Sharon’s willingness to share such deeply personal experiences was motivated by her desire to be a good example to others.

This touching story serves as a reminder of the importance of mental health awareness and the challenges individuals face behind the public facade.

Her journey through these difficult times underscores the resilience and strength required to confront and overcome such profound emotional hardships.

Sharing this story about her struggles with depression and suicide attempts is a powerful testament to her courage and determination to continue moving forward despite the obstacles she has faced.
