SHARON OSBOURNE 'Categorically Denies' Former OZZY Bassist's Threat Claim

Sharon Osbourne has categorically denied former Ozzy Osbourne bassist Bob Daisley's charge that she threatened his life, according to Launch Radio Networks.

Daisley said Sharon Osbourne "phoned me up and threatened my life!" in 1991 when he started questioning his royalty arrangement with his accountant, who was also working for the Osbournes at the time. Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake have been suing the Osbournes for years over royalties and proper credit on the albums. Their latest suit was dismissed in California in 2002, and the dismissal was upheld by the U.S. Court Of Appeals last October. The musicians had filed an appeal of the dismissal with the U.S. Supreme Court, but the court declined to hear the motion.

Attorney Orin Snyder of the law firm of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, who represents the Osbournes, released this statement to Launch: "Bob Daisley lost his case against the Osbournes. Mrs. Osbourne categorically denies (Daisley's) accusations, which she believes are nothing more than the rantings of a sore loser."
