Ozzy Osbourne overdosed when he found out his wife Sharon suffered a seizure during her treatment for colon cancer, according to his daughter Kelly.
In her new tell-all book, There Is No F**king Secret, she tells how her rock star father dug his hands into a bottle of medication when he learned her mother needed to go to hospital.
The 32-year-old fashion designer says the Black Sabbath frontman then took a handful of pills, swallowed them, and washed them down with vodka.
In an excerpt of the new book, published by Page Six, she claims she begged paramedics to not call the police.
In return, she had to zip-tie her father’s hands to a bar so he would stop fighting them off. The EMTs then had to pull a delirious Ozzy off Sharon, who resisted “out of habit.”
“Dad was there in his boxers, and I watched him scoop his hands into a bowl of pills, swallow a handful of something, and then wash it down with vodka,” she wrote.
While they were in the ambulance, Ozzy, now 68, “leaned over to put his hand out to see if mum was breathing. Then he passed out with his hand over [Sharon’s] mouth.”
When the Osbournes arrived at the hospital, Sharon was treated in one room and Ozzy was rushed to another for treatment of a drug overdose and alcohol poisoning.
Kelly wrote: “Dad could not handle the thought of losing mum,” she explains, adding that he had a doctor come to the house and “shoot him up with whatever he wanted while the [doctor’s] son sat in our dining room and played video games.”
People ask Kelly Osbourne all the time: “What’s your secret?”
Kelly Osbourne may not always have been a typical role model, but no one can say that her perspective isn’t hard won after spending three decades in the spotlight: from growing up completely exposed to the heavy metal scene — replete with crazy antics most readers have only begun to hear about — to spending her teenage years as the wild middle child of an even wilder Ozzy Osbourne, to the family’s popular stint on their wacky eponymous reality show. Since then, Osbourne has forged her own path as a style icon and powerful woman in the media who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is and be honest with her fans. But being the daughter of a music legend hasn’t always been glamorous; growing up Osbourne is an experience that Kelly wouldn’t trade, but there are battle scars, and she is finally now ready to embrace and reveal their origins.
Told as a series of letters to various people and places in her life, There Is No F*cking Secret gives readers an intimate look at the stories and influences that have shaped Osbourne’s highly speculated-about life, for better or for worse. The stories will make readers’ jaws drop, but ultimately, they will come away empowered to forge their own path to confidence, no matter how deranged and out of control it may be, and to learn the ultimate lesson: that there just is no f*cking secret.
