LOS ANGELES, April 16 (UPI) -- British rocker Ozzy Osbourne apologized on Facebook to his loved ones for drinking and using drugs during the last 18 months but said he is now sober.

Osbourne's online statement came after TMZ reported Monday he and Sharon, his wife of 31 years, had split up and were living separately in Los Angeles.

"However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I'm just trying to be a better person," he added. "I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period ... and my fans."
