“The Talk” panelist Sharon Osbourne compared her marriage with Ozzy Osbourne to the “volatile” relationship between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, and contended “it takes two to tango.”

Last week, Depp lost a lengthy libel case in which he sued the publisher of British tabloid The Sun over a 2018 article that called him a “wife beater.”

The defense for the publisher, News Group Newspapers, was based on 14 alleged incidents in which Depp was accused of being violent toward Heard.

“It’s a volatile relationship,” Sharon Osbourne said last week on “The Talk" of Depp and Heard’s marriage, which lasted from 2015 to 2017.

“I had a relationship like that with my husband at one time," she continued. "I would give him what he gave me. He shoved me, I’d shove him back.”

Following the ruling in the libel case, a lawyer for Depp shared plans to appeal the decision.

“This decision is as perverse as it is bewildering,” said Jenny Afia. “The judgment is so flawed that it would be ridiculous for Mr. Depp not to appeal this decision.”

Sharon Osbourne, 68, has been married to Ozzy Osbourne since 1982.

She said Friday that “it takes two to tango, and I think that they had a very vulnerable relationship.”

“I think they’re both as bad as each other,” she said, before later adding, “whatever went on, only those two know.”
