OZZY's Spokesperson Blasts Internet Death Pranksters

January 21, 2005

ContactMusic.com is reporting that OZZY OSBOURNE's spokesman has blasted the pranksters responsible for internet reports claiming the rocker had died — because the rumors have devastated the famous family.

The BLACK SABBATH singer — who's relaxing at his British mansion with his wife Sharon despite yesterday's (Jan. 20) bogus death announcement — has no idea what triggered the story that left fans across the world in shock.

Publicist Jay Morose says, "I have spoken briefly to Sharon and she told me that everything was okay despite what people are hearing. It is totally not true and we have no idea where any of it came from.

"Ozzy and Sharon are back in the UK at the moment enjoying some quiet time together. They are trying to have a bit of rest. I hate it when things like this happen because it's very upsetting for the family."
