Ozzy Osbourne has claimed that he lied about his 'sex addiction' in a new interview
The Black Sabbath rocker – who is married to X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne – revealed that he pretended to suffer from the addiction as a cover up after he was caught cheating with hairdresser Michelle Pugh.
Owning up to the wrong-doing, he told The Times: "I'm in a f**king rock band, aren't I? There have always been groupies.
"I just got caught, didn't I? It was a bump in the road. I don't think I'm a f**king sex addict."

Ozzy and Sharon's marriage was rocked after it was revealed that he had cheated with his hairdresser
I just got caught, didn't I? It was a bump in the road.
His shocking admission comes after the frontman issued a statement last year, where he claimed he was in "intense therapy" to help patch up his marriage to Sharon following the affair.
"Over the last six years, I have been dealing with a sex addiction," he said. "Out of bad comes good. Since the press exposed this, I have gone into intense therapy."
He also added that Sharon's relentless work schedule was also to blame for his infidelity with the celebrity hairstylist.
"In any marriage you grow apart if you don't spend enough time together, and that was part of the problem," he continued.
"Sharon is a workaholic and that's great. But if she comes home from X Factor and wants to go to bed, what the f**k am I supposed to do?"

Unsurprisingly, the Osbourne family were thrown into turmoil when the affair was uncovered, with Kelly, 31, posting a raging Twitter message at the time.
"Anyone looking for a cheap chunky LOW-lights a blow out and a b***j** call," allegedly finishing the tweet with Michelle's phone number.
Despite Ozzy's affair, the long-time couple appear to have come out stronger than ever, with Sharon revealing that the pair are set to renew their wedding vows late last year.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, she dished: "Ozzy has asked me to renew our wedding vows and I'd like to. I'm happy and to be honest that's all I want for Christmas this year."
