Sharon Osbourne slammed Bruce Dickinson, accusing him of jealousy of her husband, Ozzy Osbourne.
Ozzy and Bruce had a heated argument over a decade ago during the band’s 2005 Ozzfest tour. The Iron Maiden frontman insulted and disrespected the rocker throughout the tour, which enraged Sharon.
Following the incident, Ozzy and Sharon sat down for an interview with Consequence. They both recalled the incident after the former Black Sabbath member was asked if he felt underrated compared to other vocalists, including Dickinson.
According to the former “The View” cast member, Dickinson was a jerk for criticising her husband.
“He’s never apologized, he never even went up and said hello to Ozzy. The thing about him is that he is just so jealous. And always has been of Ozzy. And that’s his problem.”
Despite acknowledging Dickinson’s success as a soloist and band frontman, Sharon revealed that most people are unaware of his true identity.
Ozzy felt the same way, saying that Dickinson was a great singer but not a nice person.
Following the incident, a video of Dickinson slamming Ozzfest and calling it an “Eggfest” went viral.
In other news, Ozzy recently expressed his displeasure with the idea of Johnny Depp playing him in a biopic.
According to Louder Sound, the Prince of Darkness told Consequence that he does not want a famous person like Depp to act like himself. Instead, he would like to see the role played by a relatively unknown actor.
Sharon herself stated that she did not want it to be like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which she described as a signature film. Instead, she desired the film to be more realistic and an adult film for adults.
Ozzy’s biopic was originally scheduled for 2020. It is expected to center on his relationship with Sharon from 1979 to 1996. It will also discuss his well-known battles with drug and alcohol addiction.
There have been no further announcements about it. However, their eldest daughter, Aimee, had already prepared the treatment. Lee Hall, the creator of “Rocketman” and “Billy Elliott,” is said to be writing the script.
