Sharon Osbourne has always known who her husband is.

In an interview with the Mirror, the television personality, 71, opened up about how she was aware of how Ozzy Osbourne could be with other women.

"No matter how much bad behavior or who’s wrong or right in a certain situation, I love him. He’s the only man other than my dad that I’ve ever loved. I just adore him. And I knew what he was before I married him," Sharon told the outlet.

She continued: "But in my youth, being naïve, I thought, ‘I can change Ozzy. He won’t drink when he’s with me. I’ll make him a nice home and nest and we’ll be happy ever after.’ But that’s not real life. I knew what he was. I knew he had addictions and I took it on. We can’t go for a wee without each other. It’s ridiculous."

Sharon added that the Black Sabbath frontman, 75, has "always been inappropriate with women."

"We have a nurse at home, quite a large Russian lady, and she bent over him and he goes, ‘Tell me, did you breastfeed your kids?’ And I’m like, ‘You cannot say those things now. The world today is different, you cannot talk to a woman like that, you can get into trouble.’ He goes, ‘But for what?’ There’s no filter at all. He’s got Tourette’s with the truth. It just comes out," she explained.

The longtime couple — who have endured affairs and even Ozzy trying to choke his wife to death while high on drugs — once attempted marriage counseling, but they only lasted 30 minutes into the session.

"One session. He lasted half an hour and threw a water bottle at the wall and walked out," Sharon recalled

The pair have been married since 1982, but were introduced in 1970 when Sharon's father, Don Arden, worked for Black Sabbath. They share three children together: AiméeKelly and Jack Osbourne.

While the "Mama, I'm Coming Home" singer and the former Talk host have endured a lot over the years, they've maintained a refreshing honesty about their highs and lows.

"Over 52 years we have been friends, lovers, husband & wife, grandparents and soulmates," Sharon once wrote on Instagram. "Always at each other's side. I love you Ozzy."
