Ozzy Osbourne is walking back his earlier admission that he has a sex addiction.

The musician spoke to The Times recently and chalked up his adultery last year to his rock 'n' roll lifestyle, saying:
"I'm in a fucking 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 bet your marriage has bumps in the road too an' all. In any marriage you grow apart if you don't spend enough time together, and that was part of the problem. I don't think I'm a fucking sex addict."
His rep painted a different picture last year after Ozzy was found to be having an affair with his hairstylist Michelle Pugh.
Then, his affair was immediately blamed on his issues with sex addiction, and it was even said that Ozzy was in treatment for the problem.
The statement read:
"Over the last six years, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with a sex addiction. He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context. He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Out of the bad comes good. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy. Ozzy is mortified at what his behavior has done to his family. He thanks God that his incredible wife Sharon is at his side to support him."
Maybe the statement was released just to save face at the time, because it appears the 68-year-old is fine with saying the opposite now.
The Black Sabbath frontman also insists everything is well in his marriage at the moment:
"Yes, we did [reconcile]. Things are fine now. She was just here for the weekend. She'd be with me now, but she's got more fucking work than I have. She's unstoppable."
But when asked if Sharon Osbourne herself may have groupies, Ozzy is not having it:
"I dunno. You better ask her. Sharon have groupies? She'd better not. I'd go fucking mental."
We guess it's only okay for him to cheat! How typical.
