Ozzy Osbourne Recalls A Fight With His Son Jack That Kicked Him In The Balls So Hard
In an interview with Variety, Black Sabbath icon Ozzy Osbourne talked about his struggle with substance addiction and how a heated argument he had with his son Jack Osbourne made him realize how serious was his addiction.
As you know, the British singer Ozzy Osbourne has been a huge influence on heavy metal music since the 1970s, especially with his performances with Black Sabbath. The legendary vocalist has also been known for his long going alcohol and substance addiction. However, as a part of his unique survival skills which he proved to have over the course of many years, helped him to get through this challenge as well.
Recently, Ozzy Osbourne joined an interview for Variety along with his wife Sharon and their 35-year-old son Jack Osbourne. During the interview, Sharon Osbourne mentioned the time that she realized there might be nothing to do about Ozzy’s addiction when he had to go into rehab for the fifth time.
Here’s what Sharon Osbourne said about how she lost hope about Ozzy’s recovery:
“Initially I thought the first, maybe up to the fourth or fifth time he went into rehab, I thought, ‘It will work. He’ll get it this time. This time I know he’s got it.’ And then after about the fifth time, I’m like, ‘He’s never going to get it.’ And you just accept it. That’s the way it’s going to be.”
Furthermore, Ozzy Osbourne stated that he had a rare moment with his son Jack that something he said made him feel like he was kicked in the balls so hard. Apparently, Ozzy told his son that he will give him whatever he wants. However, Jack asked him to give his father back which knocked Ozzy sideways and made him realize that he had to do something about his addiction.
Here is what Ozzy Osbourne stated about his argument with his son Jack:
“But then you realize the kids have got this fear in their eyes. I mean, it’s a very selfish disease. My kids needed me. … I had a row with Jack. I had to talk business. And I said, ‘What have you ever fucking wanted? I’ll give you whatever you want.’
He says, ‘What about a father?’ That kicked me in the balls so hard. It knocked me sideways. I went, ‘Oh, my God.’ I’d give whatever materialistic things they ever wanted. But the most important person wasn’t there.”
