Even if Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne's 33-year marriage is "back on track," the couple is still sorting out their relationship issues. 

As initial announcement of their separation was brought to light back in May, the Black Sabbath rocker's affair with celebrity hairstylist Michelle Pugh was thought to be the driving factor in Ozzy and Sharon's split. Now Pugh is speaking out about their 4-year relationship to People magazine, an experience she recalls, "made me feel like the most beautiful and worshiped woman in the world." 

And while Pugh maintains the pair connected on an "emotional level" through their "shared passions," a rep for Osbourne reveals otherwise. 

"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," a rep for the singer told the mag.

"He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with," continued the statement. "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."

Of their affair, Pugh says her time with the 67-year-old, "felt like an old-fashioned romance. Being courted. I loved it," adding, "When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it." 

Pugh says she wasn't attracted to Osbourne for his rock star status but instead, "My relationship was more with this really nice, sweet, funny and cool guy ... John from England." 

The stylist—who met Ozzy when she colored his hair—also reveals that although they don't communicate anymore, Pugh admits, "I wake from my dreams, which some nights he's in, and for a minute when I wake I'm peaceful. Then the absence sets in. It's horrible."
