OZZY Complains To Medical Board About His Former Doctor

Ozzy Osbourne filed a complaint with the state medical board against a Beverly Hills doctor who allegedly overprescribed addictive drugs that led to the singer's disoriented behavior on the reality TV series "The Osbournes", according to the Associated Press.

Authorities have asked Dr. David Kipper to turn over copies of Osbourne's medical records and have scheduled a meeting with the British singer and his wife, Sharon, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday (April 3).

Osbourne filed the complaint with the Medical Board of California in early March, claiming Kipper had him take excessive quantities of Dexedrine, Valium, Zyprexa and other powerful medications.

Kipper's attorney, John D. Harwell, said the doctor was "always pleased to cooperate with the medical board." He declined to comment further.

Osbourne hired Kipper in June 2002 to kick a prescription drug habit. Kipper charged the Osbourne family $650,000 for his services, records show. He was fired in September.
