Ozzy Osbourne has told how wife Sharon violently confronted him over his relapse.
The couple briefly separated two years ago while the Black Sabbath frontman, 65, battled to get himself sober.
Ozzy, who has not touched alcohol for 480 days, told the Daily Mirror: “Sharon was pretty p***ed off with me. She’d wait like a praying mantis to catch me out drunk or stoned.
“And when she did she would throw books at me, all sorts. She once broke all my platinum discs, smashing them over my head.
“Last year when I was in a hotel, and she found out, she gets a pot of coffee and throws it in my face. It f***ing hurt and I had a red face for days.”
He praised his wife, 61, and said that the couple had recently renewed their wedding vows.
He told the newspaper: “We share a bed still, except the dogs get more bloody space in the bed than I do.”
Ozzy added: “For me, I have to go to my [AA] meetings. If I don’t go then I end up in S*** Street. I’m not in control.
“It’s been 480 days since my last drink and I go to the meetings as many times a week as I can. When we were in Stockholm on tour I went to one. I couldn’t understand a bloody word they were saying but it still helped. It’s just the act of going there.”
