Putting the issue to rest. Ozzy Osbourne’s ex-mistress Michelle Pugh has reached a settlement in her lawsuit against Kelly Osbourne, in which the hairdresser claimed the reality star bullied her for profit, Us Weekly can confirm.
Pugh previously filed a lawsuit in August claiming that Osbourne’s since-deleted tweets, which included Pugh's phone number, and comments regarding her affair with the Prince of Darkness, 67, caused her to lose business as a hairstylist in addition to inflicting emotional damage.
The hairstylist further accused Kelly, 31, of using her affair with Ozzy to promote her forthcoming book, No F–king Secret, which is set to release in 2017. A source close to Kelly denies the allegations.
“I can tell you this, this has nothing to do with Kelly’s book or promotion of,” the insider tells Us. “She signed to do a book three years ago and it was written prior to any of this happening.”
A rep for the reality star had no comment, and Pugh’s lawyer did not respond to requests for comment.
In Pugh’s August filings, she claimed that Ozzy was the first to make sexual advances and that their four-year relationship was far from a fling, despite how it was portrayed. Additionally, the L.A.-based hairdresser said that Ozzy and wife Sharon had split over financial issues, not infidelity.
For her part The Talk co-host, 63, has stood by her man following a brief separation.
“He’s been going [to] outpatient for sex addiction for the last three months, and after the tour … he goes into inpatient for three months,” she said during an episode of The Talk in August. “He’s working at it. It’s hard because it affects the whole family and it’s quite embarrassing. … I’m proud that he’s come out and admitted it, finally.”
