Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne Leaving LA Over Tax Rates
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have decided to leave Los Angeles and head back home to the United Kingdom to avoid the high tax rate in the United States.
The couple and their family have been living in the States for 20 years. Their Beverly Hills mansion has become popular because of their early 2000’s reality TV show “The Osbourne’s.”
Ozzy recently spoke with the Mirrors saying:
“We are leaving LA. We are a bit sad. But the tax is getting too much. I am sad because I really really like staying and living there.
“I am taking my recording studio with me. I am going to build a barn there and make my own studio at Welders. I will still be making music and my band will come over.”
The Prince of Darkness, 73, and his wife, 69, are reported to spend most of their time at Welders House, a property the singer owns in Buckinghamshire, a country town in South East England.
When asked if he’d keep the door open to returning to LA, he said:
“If they do the taxes better, then I may come back. I do not know.”
Ozzy has shared about his current battles with mental health problems as he struggled to cope with Parkinson’s, the pandemic, and his recovery from operations. In a press release, he explained:
“Over the past three years I have got a therapist. When I was a kid in England, you would not go to a therapist because they’d think you were f*****g crazy.
“It is OK. You ain’t stupid for going to a f*****g therapist, but you are stupid not to go if you need them.”
While, Sharon had previously been a host on the long-running daytime talk show The Talk, which films at CBS Studios in LA. She was fired from the program last year following a controversial on-air argument with fellow host Sheryl Underwood.
