(Newser) – Rumors have been swirling that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are headed for Splitsville, but last night Ozzy took to Facebook to "set the record straight": It's not divorce that's the problem, it's a relapse into drugs and alcohol. "For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an a--hole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober," he wrote, adding, "Sharon and I are not divorcing." He went on to apologize to her, the rest of his family, his friends, his bandmates, and his fans for his "insane behavior during this period."

Radar says Ozzy and Sharon have been living apart since the beginning of the month, with Ozzy renting a mansion near the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Sharon is staying; Celebuzz notes that moving vans were recently seen in front of their home. But son Jack recently tweeted that rumors of a divorce were "all bulls--t." (Another celeb dealing with his alcohol demons: Jason Segel is reportedly seeking help for his drinking in the wake of his split from Michelle Williams.)
