Ozzy Moving To England – “I’m Fed Up With People Getting Killed Every Day”
Rock icon Ozzy Osbourne said he is “fed up” with the gun violence in America and he’s moving back to England.
The Black Sabbath frontman said he plans to sell his Los Angeles home and move to a 350-acre estate in southeast England by February.
Osborne said he decided to make the move because “everything’s ridiculous” in the U.S.
The “Crazy Train” singer listed his Los Angeles home in Hancock Park for $18 million.
Osbourne, 73, has been plagued by health issues in recent years — including a Parkinson’s diagnosis, two staph infections, pneumonia, COVID-19, and, most recently, surgery this June to remove metal plates that had been pressing up against his spine since a 2019 procedure on his neck — Osbourne noted, “I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in f**king Forest Lawn.”
Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, said their decision to move was not based on his health.
“America has changed so drastically,” she said. “It isn’t the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.”
The singer’s new album, Patient Number 9, is slated for a Sept. 9 release and features other musical legends, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde, and the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
