Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, and also manager, Sharon Osbourne spoke in a recent interview with Celebrity Access, and revealed a story about the money issues that they have faced in early years of Ozzy’s solo career.
She admitted that they needed the settlement money because that’s how they moved on from one gig to another.
“Is it true that you kneed Metropolitan Talent’s promoter John Scher backstage?”
After that question, Sharon has revealed their desperate money issues unconsciously. Here’s what she said:
“Yeah, and whacked him around the head. He tried to do the dirty on Ozzy and I. We needed the (settlement) money because that’s how we moved on from one gig to another. Everything was cash in those days. Everything. And we had sold out the gig months in advance.
Then we got there, and I am doing the settlement, and he gives me all of these advertising bills. I’m like, ‘We sold out. We sold out the first day. Why do I have all of these advertising bills?’ I was then told, ‘Well, once it (an advertisement) is booked, you can’t cancel them.’ I was like, ‘Fuck off.’”
