After the very public breakdown of their marriage in the past few days, reports are emerging out of the US that Sharon Osbourne is willing to take her husband Ozzy back, under one condition… He agrees to attend rehab for sex addiction.

According to the The Sun, after years of Sharon putting up with Ozzy being a ladies man, she’s finally drawn her line in the sand, offering a stint at Pine Grove rehab centre in Mississippi as the condition to staying together to work things out.

Sources told The Sun that the long-suffering wife has spoken out to friends, saying her rocker husband is “squirming with remorse” over the rumoured affair with hairstylist Michelle Pugh.

The reports come just days after the rock royalty pair were spotted putting on a united front at an event in Los Angeles.

Onlookers say Ozzy was definitely trying to cuddle up to Sharon many times, while The Talk host swung between snuggling in and pulling away.

Sharon swung between giving in to her husband’s attempts at affection, and pulling away.

The couple of nearly 34 years were talking divorce earlier this week, with Sharon even visiting an attorney.

But they’ve reportedly agreed to put things on the backburner for now while Ozzy seeks treatment because of the feelings they still have for one another.

“It’s true Sharon has spoken to a divorce lawyer and she’s still mad as hell,” a friend told The Sun. “But she still believes they can eventually recover from this if he is prepared to get proper help.”

She’s also reportedly asked to attend marriage counselling together.

The couple spent time apart last week after reports of infidelity surfaced, with Sharon even taking a day off her hosting duties on The Talk to collect herself and figure out her next move.

When she returned, the usually brash and candid star wasn’t her normally jovial self, saying “I’m 63 years of age, and I can’t keep living like this.”
