Greed Saved Ozzy's Marriage?

(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne's fear of losing money was the main factor in avoiding divorce last year after the Black Sabbath singer fell off the wagon, says wife Sharon.

He apologized to fans in April when he admitted he'd spent 18 months drinking and taking drugs again. Now in an excerpt from Sharon's upcoming autobiography, entitled Unbreakable, she says the only thing that kept the couple from a permanent breakup was that Ozzy didn't like the idea of splitting their fortune.

"Something snapped. I thought 'I can't carry this sh*t any more. It's what I have always done � and I'm tired," She writes. "I said 'I want a divorce.' I was expecting him to be mortified, but his reply was something like a sneer. I said, 'I am serious. I want half of everything; that is my right. I also want �100,000 a month.'

"I knew money was Ozzy's Achilles heel, and the thought of losing it might have more impact than the thought of losing me." Read Ozzy's reaction to that here.
