Settlement Reached Between Ozzy Osbourne’s Ex-Mistress Michelle Pugh + Daughter Kelly Osbourne
It's been a tumultuous year for the Osbourne camp after light was shone on Ozzy's infidelity. During all of this, his daughter Kelly publicly called out Michelle Pugh, Ozzy's hair stylist and one of his now former mistresses. Posting Pugh's personal phone number on Twitter along with a damaging remarks, Kelly was sued by Pugh and the two have now reached a settlement.
As People reports, Pugh's lawyer, F. Edie Mermelstein has confirmed, "The tweets have been removed and the lawsuit has been privately resolved. The resolution statement is mutual." Kelly's original tweet stated, “Anyone looking for cheap chunky LOW-lights a blow out and a b—job call [Pugh’s phone number]" and she also accused Pugh of "elder abuse." In response Pugh claims she lost clients as a result of the tweet and was "slut-shamed, bullied and harassed" according to TMZ.
After the news broke, Ozzy apologized to all the women he had sexual relationships with, insisting that Pugh took their encounters out of context. She responded back, telling People, “When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it. He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world.” She also went on to note that Ozzy was "unhappy" and that the Prince of Darkness “consistently and willingly and generously” gave his love.
With this settlement now reached, it helps to put this issue to rest as both Ozzy and his wife Sharon have worked everything out. Late last month, she revealed on Conan that the two have worked things out, detailing Ozzy's struggles when she said, “It’s tough, you know, when you’re an addict. He likes too much alcohol, he likes too much drugs, he likes too much sex. He likes too much food. Everything is too much, so it’s tough for somebody that suffers with that.”
