X17 Online has uploaded new photos of legendary legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne driving around his new Calabasas, California home in a Ferrari. You can also some of the images in the TMZ.com YouTubeclip below.
Ozzy rear-ended another car on December 13, 2010 while driving around Los Angeles. Law enforcement sources said Ozzy‘s Ferrari hit a Mercedes from behind right before entering an L.A. highway. Both parties reportedly waited for police to arrive and then traded information before departing without incident. There were no injuries and damage was minor.
Commenting on the incident on her U.S. talk show “The Talk”, Ozzy‘s wife/manager Sharon Osbourne said, “Ozzy just recently passed his driving test and you know, every guy’s dream from being a kid to 62, they’ve wanted to have a Ferrari. So he goes and gets himself one. It had 20 miles on the clock, he goes, ‘I’m going driving.’ He goes out, gets lost, doesn’t know where he is and he hits another car. But the guy he hits is a lawyer. So then Ozzy has a wicked panic on, he says sorry, he gets out the car and the guy goes, ‘I’m calling the police.’ Ozzy goes, ‘You don’t have to, it’s only a minor thing.’ The guy goes, ‘I’m a lawyer.’ And Ozzy says, ‘Jeez, it’s just my luck, I hit Perry Mason.’ It’s like, of all the people in the world! This guy was being really lawyer-like, asking questions, being really strict. He was like, ‘Don’t you leave!’ Ozzy was like, ‘I’m not going anywhere.'”
Ozzy revealed in a 2010 interview that it took him 19 attempts to obtain his driver’s license because he was always “drunk or something.” He admitted that he was so nervous during one of the tests that he asked his doctor to prescribe tranquilizers. “So when I had to turn the car, I was simply asleep,” he said. “When I woke up, the examiner had simply disappeared, but left a message on a paper on the dashboard: ‘Unfortunately, Mr. Osbourne has not passed the exam and would suggest that he never again try to drive this car.'” Ozzy also said that instructors and testers have told him, “I’m not even fucking getting in the car with you.”
