Ozzy Osbourne and his outspoken wife Sharon are furious with their daughter Kelly's ex-boyfriend Bert McCracken — because they insist he used their child to promote his band, according to TeenMusic.com.
The foul-mouthed rock couple, whose children Kelly and Jack rose to popularity following the success of their reality show "The Osbournes", feel McCracken of THE USED only wanted publicity when she started dating the "Shut Up!" singer.
The pair split on Valentine's Day following McCracken's announcement live on stage that their romance was over. And while Kelly grieves, her parents are seething.
A source tells magazine US Weekly, "They're pissed because Bert used her to get on TV and get press for himself."
But a pal of McCracken counters, "The kid is not that calculating. The only thing he cares about is what city he's playing next. He's on the road constantly. He didn't have time for a serious relationship."
And although the McCracken ally acknowledges the free publicity "hasn't hurt" the band, the source confirms, "He really loved that girl. Everything he did was out of love."
