The Osbournes split

Heavy metal first couple Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have split after 33 years of marriage, E! News and Entertainment Tonight said, quoting unnamed sources.

But People magazine said that while Ozzy, 67, was moving out of their Los Angeles home, the separation may be temporary. It said the split was linked to 63-year-old Sharon's suspicions that he was having an affair.

The news outlets said Ozzy has not had a relapse of his drug and alcohol problem, which he was long notorious for.


Prince Harry chastises media

Britain's Prince Harry, 31, has criticised what he called an "incessant need" of the media to delve into his private life. "Everyone has a right to privacy", he told the BBC, and said the desire to know "every little bit of detail about what goes on behind the scenes" is unnecessary.

He said the royal family are "completely aware that we are in a very privileged position", adding: "I will spend the rest of my life earning that privilege and trying to bring a spotlight on to things and causes that really matter to me". He was speaking in the interview in Florida, where he opened the Invictus Games for disabled war veterans on Sunday.

"The other concern is that even if I talk to a girl, that person is then suddenly my wife, and people go knocking on her door," he said in a Sunday Times interview. He described his worries as a "massive paranoia that sits inside me".
