Hey, Ozzy Osbourne -- in case you didn't know, the missus isn't too thrilled with you right now.

Sharon Osbourne on Tuesday addressed the rumors over her marriage to the heavy-metal star on her CBS show "The Talk." Reports have suggested that the longtime couple is on the rocks due to Ozzy's substance abuse.

"We're not getting divorced," Osbourne declared, as the studio audience and her cohosts erupted in applause. "However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes I am. I'm devastated right now.

"Everybody knows he’s been struggling with this his entire life and I never knew that he was using prescription drugs," she said. "I knew he was drinking occasionally, but I didn’t realize to [such an] extent." 

She added: "We’ve dealt with worse and we will deal with it and this too shall pass.  Otherwise my husband will be taken to the hospital to get my foot removed from his" backside.

Sharon Osbourne has a proven knack for turning family travails into grist for her TV shows.

Last year, she waged a public feud with NBC, claiming that producers fired her son Jack from the reality show "Stars Earn Stripes" after he revealed he suffers from multiple sclerosis. She has since left her role as a judge on NBC's summer hit "America's Got Talent," vowing, "I never want to hear from them again."
