OSBOURNES’ HOME BURGLARIZED!
Ozzy allegedly attempts to thrwart jewel theives?
Well this is just whacky. Nothing terribly absurd, but for some reason, we felt compelled to post this.
Seems like Ozzy and Sharon’s mansion in England was burgled! (That’s what they call getting your pad broken into and robbed in the UK. "Burgled.") Anyhow, the following was posted today at CNN.com. (You can read the original article right here).
Osbournes hit by gem raiders
Monday, November 22, 2004
LONDON, England (Reuters) — Burglars broke into the English country home of rocker and reality TV star Ozzy Osbourne Monday and stole a large amount of jewelry, police said.
They used a ladder to climb through a first floor window at the Osbournes’ mansion at Chalfont St Peter in Buckinghamshire, just north of London, police said.
"The disturbance woke the residents and a man grabbed one of the burglars," a police spokeswoman said, without saying if the man in question was Ozzy. "The offender eventually managed to struggle free and then jumped out of the window and made off."
Ozzy and his wife Sharon, two of Britain’s best loved reality TV stars, are living at the mansion. Their children were not in the house at the time.
Osbourne, 55, first shot to fame in the 1970s as frontman of ground-breaking heavy metal band Black Sabbath.
He has since mellowed from wild man of heavy rock to comical much-loved star of MTV’s popular reality show "The Osbournes," which offers a peek into his life at home with his family.
Frequently in the news in Britain, he injured himself badly in a quad bike crash a year ago. He fractured eight ribs and a vertebra in the accident and spent several days on a ventilator.
Sounds like Ozzy might’ve tried to pull a David Lee Roth and confronted the intruders on his own! But unlike DLR back in May of 2003, it seems that the intruders got away. See? It pays to live in Pasadena.
Sucks that they made off with the gems. Too bad they didn’t take Sharon.
