Yet another insider is claiming Ozzy Obsourne went missing before news of his alleged affair broke. A family friend tells Us Weekly that wife Sharon “thought he had gone on a walk and had some kind of medical emergency.” Sharon and Ozzy’s three kids couldn’t find him either, but they got a clue when they saw a number in the rocker’s phone no one recognized.

When Ozzy came home two days later, he wasn’t exactly forthcoming. “Ozzy wouldn’t come clean about where he was,” the insider says, adding that Pugh has refused to answer any of the family’s calls. “They are extremely confused and desperate for more information.”
- As of now, Sharon and Ozzy are splitting up after 33-years together. The source points out, however, that this has happened before, adding “Hopefully it will blow over.”
