NEW YORK -- Ozzy Osbourne's mistress says it was love. Ozzy Osbourne says it was purely physical.
Osbourne's former hair colorist, Michelle Pugh, tells People magazine they had a four-year affair that was "like an old-fashioned romance."
She says, "When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it."
However, Osbourne's representative says in a statement he's been dealing with a sex addiction for the past six years and he's in treatment.
The statement says he is sorry if Pugh "took their sexual relationship out of context" and he's apologizing to the other women with whom he's had sexual relationships.
Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, separated briefly but are back together.
