Ozzy Osbourne‘s mistress Michelle Pugh is suing Kelly Osbourne for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and public disclosure of private facts.
Ozzy Osbourne‘s mistress Michelle Pugh and daughter Kelly Osbourne have reached a settlement in their lawsuit. “The tweets have been removed and the lawsuit has been privately resolved. The resolution statement is mutual,” Pugh’s lawyer F. Edie Mermelstein toldPeople, who first reported the story.
The lawsuit comes after Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy announced their trial separation as a result of alleged infidelity between Ozzy and Michelle. When the news first spread, Kelly took to Twitter to slam Michelle. “Anyone looking for cheap chunky LOW-light and blow out and a b—–b call …,” Kelly wrote before listing a phone number that has since been disconnected.
After one fan criticized her for sharing Pugh’s information publicly, Kelly fired back, “Are you my family? NO YOU ARE NOT YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SHE DID! So keep ur high-mighty opinions to yourself!”
In court documents obtained by E! News, Michelle claims Kelly “intentionally and maliciously harmed her by publishing private facts and defamatory statements, in addition to inciting a rash of mass cyber-bullying against [Michelle] utilizing the highly popular social media platform, Twitter, wherein Kelly had approximately 4.07 million followers.”
As a result of Kelly’s violation of Twitter rules, her account was locked, according to the documents. Kelly deleted the phone number tweet about a month later, but the “damage” was “already done.”
Michelle is seeking compensatory damages, attorneys’ fees, punitive damages and “other relief” as the court sees fit.
Recently Sharon and Ozzy announced that their marriage was “back on track” after hitting a rough patch, but Pugh opened upto People magazine about her four-year relationship with the Black Sabbath rocker and recalled how he “made me feel like the most beautiful and worshiped woman in the world.”
Although Michelle maintained she and Ozzy shared something special, a rep for Ozzy told the magazine otherwise. “And while Pugh maintains the pair connected on an “emotional level” through their “shared passions,” a rep for Osbourne reveals otherwise.
“Over the last six years, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with a sex addiction. He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context,” a rep for the singer told the mag. “He would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with. Out of the bad comes good. Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy. Ozzy is mortified at what his behavior has done to his family. He thanks God that his incredible wife Sharon is at his side to support him.”
Sharon also addressed Ozzy’s addiction on The Talk, saying, “He’s working at it. It’s hard because it affects the whole family,” she said. “It’s quite embarrassing to talk about.”
