The Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne split rumors that bubbled up over the weekend and on Monday were painting anything but a clear picture of this nearly 31-year-old marriage.
Son Jack Osbourne, however, was doing his part to unmuddy the waters.
First, the rumors ...
Sharon was caught on camera "moving into a new home" recently, according to the Daily Mail, which noted the activity took place just days before "The Talk" host was photographed sans wedding ring at a lunch date with daughter Kelly. The London paper showed photos of the redhead looking "downcast" — or perhaps just looking down at the ground as she busied herself around a moving van.
Britain's Daily Mirror produced the same pictures but emphasized the financial twist, saying as the Mail had that the couple had broken up over financial woes, including a large tax bill.
So now we compare the pics and that info with what TMZ said Monday (while alleging there are no plans for a divorce): Sharon is supposedly living at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the website reported, while Ozzy is allegedly holed up in a rental property several miles from the hotel. The site acknowledged previous reports that the two had been living apart while their Beverly Hills home was renovated.
