Yes, we think of her as Mrs. Ozzy, but Sharon Osbourne did have a life before she got married. The former America’s Got Talent judge recently admitted to messing around with Jay Leno back in the day. How did the two meet and why did they call it quits?
Sharon Osbourne recently revealed a little factoid that had been resting among other fan rumors for years…she used to date Jay Leno! The celeb prefaced the confession with, “It’s not like it’s a dirty little secret,” but went on to dish about the steamy affair. And no, this secret didn’t come out of thin air — it was planned as part of the Big Secret segment on The Talk.
According to Sharon, the fling began while she was in her mid 20s, at time in which the celeb feels she was not particularly dateable. This was still in the pre-Ozzy days, although the two were had already met and were good friends. But Sharon only expressed interest in Jay Leno, who she first laid eyes on at a comedy club. She made the first move by targeting Jay with a prank call. “He liked my voice,” explained Sharon, adding, “One thing led to another. He came to my house and met me and then we had a little fling. The fling was more fling for me and not fling enough for him.”
The fling quickly fizzled out, but Sharon and Jay remained on good terms. “A couple of months into it he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet. She was lovely and they took me to Fat Burger and they showed me around town. They were so kind to me and continued the friendship over the years.”
