Sharon Osbourne and Jay Leno once dated, shocker!
The 60-year-old made the big revelation during a season of The Talk on Monday. “It’s not like it’s a dirty little secret,” she said nervously before telling her story. “When I was 25, I just moved to America. I didn’t know many people.”
She went on to explain saying, “I had met my husband [Ozzy], but we weren’t together. We were just friends. I didn’t have a boyfriend. I never did date a lot at that time, anyway, because I was not very dateable.” It all started when she went to club where a friend of hers worked and that is where she saw Leno performing his comedy routine. Osbourne told her friend that she thought he was “very nice, very funny” and that she liked him. They decided to prank call him.
“He liked my voice,” she admitted, so she kept calling him. “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,” she said, calling it a “flingy-wingy.” At the time, Leno had eyes for someone else. “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,” Osbourne said, adding, “They were so kind to me and continued the friendship over the years.”
Leno, 63, is known for his long-lasting marriage to Mavis, whom he wed in 1980. He has not commented on the revelation so far.
