Ozzy Osbourne, 72, looks tired as he is seen after wife Sharon denied racism claims


Ozzy Osbourne was pictured looking tired as he was seen for the first time since wife Sharon was forced to deny allegations of racism which has left her future at The Talk in the balance. 

Rocker Ozzy – who is battling Parkinson’s – was seen leaving a Beverly Hills home Thursday with his trademark long locks showing signs of graying. 

In January last year, the Black Sabbath frontman, 72, revealed that he has Parkin 2 – a form of Parkinson’s which he said is the cause of nerve pain and leaves his legs cold. The star had been hiding his condition for a year.  

Wife Sharon, 68, on Wednesday adamantly denied ever calling Julie Chen a ‘wonton,’ in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, saying the claims are ‘crap, all crap’.

She had first sparked controversy when she came to Piers Morgan‘s defense after he said he didn’t believe a word Meghan Markle said during her Oprah interview. 

That led to a bust up with co-host Sheryl Underwood on the March 10 show during which a tearful Underwood said she believed Morgan’s ‘dismissal’ of Markle’s claims was racist.   

The show has now been put on hiatus until next Tuesday pending an investigation by CBS bosses. 

Osbourne was then accused of racism by former co-stars Julie Chen, Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete – claims she dismissed as ‘crap’ in an interview with DailyMail.com. 

Last year Ozzy told Good Morning America of his Parkinsons diagnosis: ‘It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination but it does effect the nerves in your body.

‘It’s like you’ll have a good day, then a good day and then a really bad day.’

Earlier Thursday DailyMail.com revealed Underwood was caught on camera defending comedian George Lopez after he called a black woman a ‘b***h’ and joked that the number one rule in the Latino community is ‘don’t marry somebody black’. 

Sources told DailyMail.com that they found watching Underwood angrily attack Osbourne for defending Morgan ‘hypocritical’ given her past defense of Lopez. 

Osbourne has also fought back in an interview with DailyMail.com. 

She told DailyMail.com that she was blindsided and believes the debate was ‘a set up’ by CBS bigwigs who ordered Underwood to attack her over her defense of Morgan after fellow co-host Elaine Welteroth refused.

She said: ‘I found out later on, they’d asked Elaine to start off the segment and she said, no I’m not doing it.

‘She kept saying, “where’s the evidence that Piers is a racist? Where’s the evidence? Show me”. Of course, they couldn’t show her anything because there wasn’t anything.’

In the interview, Osbourne asked: ‘But why is it that because I supported a long-time friend and work colleague of mine for years that everybody goes, if you support him, then you must be racist because he’s racist?

‘This is the situation. You tell me where you have heard him say, educate me, tell me when you have heard him [Morgan] say racist things. Educate me. Tell me.’

A tearful Underwood replied: ‘It is not the exact words of racism. It is the implication and the reaction to it.

‘To not want to address that, because she is a black woman, and to try and dismiss it or to make it seem less than it is. That’s what makes it racist.’

Osbourne has also faced further accusations of racism leveled by former co-stars Julie Chen, Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete. 

Both Robinson Peete and Remini claim they were described as ‘ghetto’ by Osbourne, while Chen claims the 68-year-old referred to her as a ‘wonton’.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, Osbourne angrily denied the claims and said the spate of claims amounted to a pile-on.

She said: ‘Everyone’s got an opinion or a story like the wonton story. It’s like f*** off with your f***ing wonton story. F*** off! 

‘Everybody’s got an opinion and everybody’s got a voice – it’s fine. It’s about knowing somebody’s been called out for something and then somebody else is like, “yes!! I’m going to add something too”.

‘Of course, it’s a pile on. People want to add fuel to the fire and it comes with the territory and that’s fine. I can say f*** you all.’

Asked if she had ever called Chen a wonton or referred to Remini as ghetto, she added: ‘It’s all crap. It’s all crap.

‘In situations like this, you’re always going to get people who you’ve had disagreements with in the past, people who’ve got axes to grind, who come out of the woodwork and they’ll come out with their BS and that’s it. It doesn’t surprise me at all. It doesn’t surprise me.’

She added: ‘Being accused of racism is no joke. Now they get their sweet revenge. I can’t even address it because it’s kids in a schoolyard.

‘Coming out with stupid, childish comments – it’s like really? That’s all you’ve got?’  

The bust-up has left her friendship with Underwood hanging by a thread, angry about the ensuing pile-on and with her career at CBS in doubt.

Although she says she is being supported by her friends, family, Morgan and her co-stars – albeit Underwood aside – she told DailyMail.com the furor has been tough to take.

She said: ‘It’s been a really, really bad week – a lot of mental pressure and heartache.’

 Osbourne told DailyMail.com that she wasn’t warned that a debate was coming and had been prepped beforehand for four completely different segments.

She says she was blindsided and stunned to discover her co-hosts were questioning her using cue cards on a part of the show that is usually ad-libbed. 

Osbourne says it was at this point, she realized she had been set up by producers intent on creating headlines and CBS bigwigs angry with her for defending Morgan who they believe ‘tarnished’ their top rated Markle interview with his comments.

Morgan told Good Morning Britain viewers that he didn’t believe a word Markle said and added: ‘I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report’.

Osbourne was later accused of racism for backing Morgan’s right to voice an opinion, while Morgan has now left Good Morning Britain after refusing to apologize for his comments. 

Osbourne told DailyMail.com that she later discovered The Talk’s producers had initially asked Elaine Welteroth to lead the questioning but she refused when they were unable to provide her with any evidence of Morgan’s alleged racism.

She said: ‘I found out later on, they’d asked Elaine to start off the segment and she said, no I’m not doing it.

‘She kept saying, ‘where’s the evidence that Piers is a racist? Where’s the evidence? Show me’. Of course, they couldn’t show her anything because there wasn’t anything.’
