Sharon Osbourne had Jay Leno fling
Sharon Osbourne has revealed she had a fling with Jay Leno before getting together with husband Ozzy.
The X Factor judge spilled the beans about her brief romance with the talk show host while appearing on another chat show, The Talk, according to E!.
Telling the story, Sharon said: "I thought that everybody knew everything about me because I tell everything anyway, but this, I don't know why, I just didn't discuss it before or shared it or anything. And it's not like it's a dirty little secret.
"OK, let's cut to when I was 25, I had just moved to America, I didn't know many people - remember, 25. I had met my husband but we weren't together, we were just friends. I'm here, I didn't have a boyfriend... Anyway. my friend worked at this place and said, 'You have to come down to this club where I work because it's full of men, you've got to come down!'
"So anyway, I come down to this club and it is full of men performing and this one person, I think, 'Oh he's very nice, very funny.' So I said to my friend, 'I like him.' She says, 'I've got his number'."
Sharon admitted she crank called Jay and briefly dated him, but "the fling was more fling for me and not fling enough for him because a couple of months into it, he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet. And she was lovely and they took me to Fat Burger and showed me around town. They were so kind to me and continued a friendship over the years - and that man that I had a flingy-wingy with was Jay Leno."
Show host Julie Chen clarified: "You mean you had sex with Jay Leno?"
Sharon replied: "It was so long ago, I can't remember. One cannot remember that long ago!"
