It's over a month since Ozzy Osbourne and his The X Factor judge wife, Sharon, reportedly ended their marriage. Now daughter Kelly Osbourne hints the celebrity couple may have reignited their relationship.

Talking to Entertainment Tonight Kelly Osbourne said her parents, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, are back together.

News of their split surfaced in May, with reports suggesting Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy, 67, had been unfaithful to his wife of 33 years.

But Kelly told Entertainment Tonight at the Babes for Boobs auction in the US: “My mum and dad are together right now.”

“I will never not be good with my dad,” she said.

“That does not mean that I think what he did wasn’t f****** stupid, but that’s between him and I. I’m a daddy’s girl. I love my dad.”

On Monday, X Factor judge Sharon and Ozzy embraced as they appeared in public together for the first time since news of their split was reported.

The couple reunited at the Palladium in Los Angeles for a press conference where they announced the merging of heavy metal music festivals, Ozzfest and Slipknot’s Knotfest.

After taking to the stage, Sharon, 63, said she wanted to “introduce some friends of mine” before calling out her estranged husband’s name. The Black Sabbath frontman, 67, then appeared and gave Sharon a brief hug.

The event came just two days after Sharon admitted she had “no idea” if she has a future with the singer.

She told US television chat show The Talk that she “can’t keep living like this” as she addressed reports the couple’s 33-year marriage could be coming to an end.

Sharon confirmed it was “true” that she had kicked the Black Sabbath frontman out of their Beverly Hills mansion but now “he’s back, and I’m out of the house”.

Asked if she was on speaking terms with her husband, Osbourne replied: “I’m not with him but I speak to him, sure.

“I love Ozzy dearly. He’s given me an unbelievable life. He’s given me three gorgeous children.”

Asked by her co-host Julie Chen if there was a chance the couple could stay married, Sharon replied: “I honestly don’t know. I cannot answer that because I don’t know at this point what I want.”

Ozzy has fought a public battle with drug and alcohol addiction throughout their marriage but has insisted that any reports suggesting he was using drugs again were “completely inaccurate”.

The pair met in the 1970s via her father Don Arden, who was managing the heavy metal group at the time.

They wed in 1982 and have three children together: Jack, Kelly and Aimee.

The Osbourne family found a new level of fame when they appeared on the MTV reality show The Osbournes from 2002 to 2005. Last year the family were reported to be in talks about a  return of their hit reality show.
