Sharon Osbourne Suicide Attempt
“I was joking about this but I shouldn’t. Talking about my depression and it’s like, you know, saying ‘Oh, the first time I tried to kill myself was OK. The second, alright. The third time, oi!” she said. “But it’s like, I’m still here. I still do what I do. And you struggle. But it’s like… I wished everybody could think flowers and daisies and princesses. But you can’t… And we lived happily ever after. No we don’t!”
She provided more insight into her struggle saying at one point that she once slit her wrist to prove to Ozzy that she loved him.
“I’ve never discussed it out of embarrassment of how stupid I was at the time to have done such a thing to myself,” she said in 2014. “It was something that was done when I was 27. I was just going out with Ozzy at the time, we were working together and dating at the same time. He was married, had two children. I was free and single. When we first got together, we would drink a lot together. That’s what we did. We had a session of romance, drinking, partying — it’s about 4 a.m. and he says to me, ‘How much do you love me? I don’t know if this relationship is going to last.’”
“I’m very dramatic as you all know,” she continued. “I’m like, ‘I’ll show you how much I love you!’ So, I went to a room service table that was still in the room, covered with old fries and burgers and steaks, and there was a steak knife. So, I get the knife and I go, ‘I love you so much,’ slash, slash, slash on my wrist [miming cutting her left wrist].”
She went on into further detail speaking on the gruesome event. After slitting her wrist , the bleeding wouldn’t stop. Furthermore, she was rushed to the hospital. This doesn’t come as much of surprise as a book she previously wrote goes into depth about her struggles. She even confirmed that at one point she and Ozzy Osbourne made a suicide pact. If one of them ever get diagnosed with a deadly disease that they would die together.
