Earlier in the week, we reported that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have run up more than $1.7 million in unpaid taxes and are now facing losing their home.
As Sharon is a woman who highly regards her "moral character" and the perception of herself in the community, she sent us this EXCLUSIVE statement to clear up any misconceptions about the situation at hand. Her statement reads:
“At 4:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon I received a phone call from my publicist who had a reporter on the other line informing her that the IRS had just put a lien on one of our properties. I then contacted my accountant who said they knew nothing about any lien. The lien has been paid. I do intend to find out how this lien happened without the knowledge of myself or my accountants. I hope none of this reflects negatively on mine and Ozzy’s moral character.” – Sharon Osbourne
It shouldn't, but it sounds like you've got a real problem with someone on your staff who is fairly close to all your money. Make sure it is your top priority to find this person and promptly remove them from your inner circle before you get into more trouble that you had zero hand in.
Did this same person screw over Kelly Osbourne too, we wonder???
