Jack Osbourne Says Ozzy Is A “New Man” Sober [VIDEO]
Jack Osbourne recently gave an interview to the BBC in which he discusses his father Ozzy’s five year sobriety and also his recently filmed documentary (he produced) titled God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.
Asked why he decided to produce the film, Jack explained, “I did this mainly because I was fed up of the way the media was still portraying my dad as this bumbling, messed up character. He has changed so much and has become a new man who I respect . . . I wanted to highlight that. That was the inspiration for the film. He’s been sober and clean for five years.”
He also recounted how he finally confronted his father regarding his drug and alcohol abuse.
“I just told him, ‘You claim you’re this great guy which you’re not. We, as kids, have never had to go without or want for anything — well, I need a dad,’ and I think that’s what rang a bell with him.”
God Bless Ozzy Osbourne premiered in April at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City but has yet to land theatrical distribution.
Entertainment Weekly did issue a review of the film.
” [Ozzy's children] portray him as an absentee father even when he was physically present due to his mind-numbing abuse of pills, cocaine and liquor”, it states.
Glad to hear he’s sober and doing well but frankly I saw him Halloween night a few years ago and couldn’t really notice any difference.
Ozzy is on tour in Europe throughout the summer.
