Ozzy Osbourne’s mistress is suing Kelly Osbourne for tweeting her phone number

Yesterday we heard from Michelle Pugh, an LA-based colorist who claims to have had a four year affair with Ozzy Osbourne, whom she called the love of her life. We already knew that Michelle was Ozzy’s mistress because his daughter, Kelly, and wife, Sharon, released the woman’s name to the press, claimed to have gotten her fired from her job by calling and harassing her at work, and Kelly even tweeted the woman’s phone number with a childish “for a good time call” message. At that time, Kelly and Sharon were almost entirely blaming Michelle for the affair, with Kelly calling it “elder abuse” and Sharon responding by saying it was funny that Kelly tweeted the woman’s phone number.

Right as Michelle’s interview came out, Ozzy (aka Sharon) issued a statement that he was going into rehab for a six year sex addiction, that Michelle had misconstrued their relationship and that “he would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with,” meaning Michelle wasn’t the only one. This sounds like Sharon exerting her influence to stick it to Michelle after personal attacks failed to keep her quiet. Michelle isn’t taking it. She’s now suing Kelly for tweeting her phone number and failing to remove it for a month. No wonder Kelly hasn’t tweeted anything for a whole two days.

“People falling in love with each other and staying married to someone else and having romantic relationships: It’s an age old story,” [Pugh} contends. “But for some reason here we are in 2016, and they are running this 1600s Scarlet Letter novel.”

Pugh also claims Ozzy’s daughter Kelly Osbourne helped subject her to public backlash by tweeting out her direct phone number and accusing her of “elder abuse.”

“She went on a Twitter rampage, and she started getting responses the night that she tweeted my number out,” Pugh says. “Maybe four hours later, she started responding back to people. One of them wrote, ‘You have no idea what she did.’ [She responded], ‘My father is almost 70, ever hear of elder abuse?’ I’m like, ‘elder abuse?’ We had a four year relationship.”

In response, Pugh says she sent Kelly a cease and desist letter in May, but asserts that the tweet with her phone number wasn’t deleted for nearly a month. She is now suing Kelly for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and public disclosure of private facts, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

“Not only had Plaintiff begun to be slut-shamed, bullied, and harassed for allegedly breaking up a marriage, but was wrongfully accused of a crime that further held her up to ridicule, hate, and shame,” the papers state. “No less than 4.07 million persons were given the opportunity to communicate this hate and harassment to Plaintiff directly, to her formerly private unlisted blocked telephone; the same phone number that Plaintiff provided to her exclusive clientele.”

The suit continues: “Since having her private blocked phone number publicly released, Plaintiff has had to obtain a new phone number and actively dispel false rumors of termination from her salon due to her relationship with Ozzy, as framed by Kelly…

Pugh’s lawyer, F. Edie Mermelstein, tells PEOPLE exclusively that her client “is taking a stand against cyber harassment and bullying at the hands of Kelly Osbourne.

“In the age of social media, reality TV and the internet, anyone, especially a celebrity can launch a global attack leaving an indelible and permanent stain on a chosen target, while inciting masses to demean, degrade, comment and harass,” Mermelstein says in a statement. “Kelly Osbourne, with over four million followers and a strong media presence, intentionally did exactly that to Michelle Pugh on Twitter…

“There are laws on our books addressing harm and damage to the reputation of an individual, as well as publication of a person’s private facts. In violation of California laws and Twitter rules and policies, Kelly Osbourne publicly exposed my client to hatred, contempt ridicule and disgrace,” Mermelstein concludes.

[From two articles on People]

Kelly never should have tweeted Michelle’s phone number, Kelly never should have revealed Michelle’s identity to the press (although it’s unknown whether Kelly and/or Sharon did that I would assume that’s how it got out) and Kelly should have immediately taken Michelle’s phone number down after she received that cease and desist. She didn’t do any of those things and she continued to talk smack about Michelle to the press and blame her for her own father’s actions because that’s how Sharon has always coped – by blaming the other woman and taking Ozzy back. Michelle is standing up for herself and her business, which has surely suffered. However it’s really ripe for Michelle to use the “it’s an age old story/they’re scarlet lettering me” excuse. It’s an age old story because cheaters have always been denounced and for good reason. However in this case Kelly and Sharon were entirely blaming the woman and she had her livelihood and privacy threatened. No one deserves that.

Sharon Osbourne spoke on The View yesterday about Ozzy’s “sex addiction.” She claimed that he’s been going to outpatient treatment for three months (which would coincide with when Sharon found out that he was cheating), that she was “proud that he’s come out and admitted it, finally,” and that he “should call Tiger Woods for some advice.” I don’t think Sharon is mad about the cheating, I think she’s mad that he was with this woman for years and obviously cared about her, that’s why she’s working so hard to make it seem like a compulsion not a genuine affair.

This is how Kelly Osbourne’s hair looked a couple of weeks ago. She should be pissed that she had to switch colorists.

    Sharon & kelly are both vile women. When I read this today about the law suit, the first thing I thought was, ‘ so she bloody well should sue Kelly’. I don’t condone been with a married man but I really hope she wins. Kelly is a giant baby. Oh and ozzy and sex addiction, what a joke. First it was substances that made him cheat and now sex addiction. Sharon belongs with that idoit.

      +1. … on all points

      Sex addiction, my ass. Substitute sex for drinking in following:

      Charlie Allnut : What are you being so mean for, Miss? A man takes a drop too much once in a while, it’s only human nature.
      Rose Sayer : Nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we are put in this world to rise above.

    • Snazzy says:

      Exactly. Releasing her personal info like that was just not ok. Good for her for standing up for herself

    • Nicole says:

      Yea yesterday when CB had the story tmz had the story of the lawsuit. All I can think is “good” because while I don’t condone cheating they basically made it so millions could harass this woman personally and at her business. If they don’t settle she will definitely win

    • Kate says:

      Exactly my first reaction. Kelly deserves to be sued. She acted like the spoiled, horrible child that she is. She is a notorious bully

    • JenniferJustice says:


  2. Mgsota says:

    Can’t believe this dude is a sex addict. He can barely walk and talk?!?!

  3. Elia says:

    I agree. Sharon and Kelly are vile, spoiled jerks. And once you get past their potty mouths, they’re actually quite dull.

  4. Neelyo says:

    Disgusting creatures, the both of them. Mother and daughter have made a career out of talking shit about others. It’s about time it caught up with them.

  5. Betti says:

    Sharon is nasty and controlling, Kelly takes after her mother. Ozzy has ALWAYS cheated on Sharon – didn’t he cheat on his previous wife with Sharon?

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      He did cheat on his first wife with Sharon and his children were very young at the time I think, karma got the slow bus on the long route around to Sharon with this one.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Yes, and Sharon, the hypocrite, admitted to sleeping with Ozzy’s brilliant guitarist, Randy Rhoads, who perished at age 25, in a tragic plane crash.

      Make no mistake, this has NOTHING to do with infidelity, and EVERYTHING to do with finances and control. I am sure Sharon has turned a blind eye to many of Ozzy’s bad habits over the decades, just as long as he kept touring, making money (remember she is his manager as well) and funding her shopping addiction.

      As for Kelly, she deserves what she gets, she tweeted this woman’s personal info. The only way this greedy family ever “learns,” is when it hits them, namely $haron, in the wallet.

  6. shelly says:

    Kelly Osbourne is a waste of skin and oxygen. Devoid of charm and well past her sell by date.
    I wish she would just go away and take her ghastly Mother with her.

  7. Luca76 says:

    Serves Kelly right and I hope she takes her to the cleaners. She should also sue Twitter while she’s at it too because that sh*t ain’t right. Adultery is wrong but there are normal adult ways of dealing with betrayal that don’t involve being a grade A A-hole. But we know that at the end of the day Kelly will portray herself as the victim.

  8. anonymous says:

    “No one deserve that”, well maybe she shouldn’t have involve herself with a married man ! I obviously know that Ozzy and his mistress are both to be blamed here but I can totally understand Kelly (not sharon), she is not thinking with logic but with emotions.
    She obviously loves her dad and will never blame him and honestly if i were her i think i would have done even worse.

    • Luca76 says:

      She can hate the woman all she wants but no one has the right to publicly post someone’s phone number because they are angry. That’s just disgusting behavior and she will be cutting a huge check for her stupid and entitled behavior.

    • Jules says:

      Kelly needs to grow the F up and stay out or her parents marriage that is really none of her business. She’s supposedly a woman, but mentally she’s 12. My parents marriage was far from perfect, and it was also none of my business…

      • anonymous says:

        kids are overprotective towards their parents, that’s the way it is, get over it. I have no sympathy towards the mistress, involving yourself in an affair will only get you in trouble, always.

    • Wren says:

      There’s “not blaming her dad” and then there’s tweeting vile insults, revealing personal information on social (public) media, and generally going after the other party with the fury of a rabid chihuahua with access to the internet. If she had kept the woman’s name and private phone number out of it, I’d say yeah whatevs, to be expected. But no, she had to attack the woman publicly and incessantly, subject her to harassment from strangers (do you have any idea how horrible that can get when the internet is involved?!), and jeopardize her livelihood. That is where she crossed the line from filial loyalty to unacceptable behavior.

      • Aussie girl says:

        Anonymous it really sounds like your giving ozzy a free pass. No one is saying that cheating is ok but it takes two. If you want to think your way than maybe Sharon should have never involved herself with a then married ozzy, braking up his marriage in the first place..? Is the child of the mistress exempt in your example ..? You said no symphony for a mistress for involving herself in an affair and it always ends bad. Like let’s say him always cheating again and having a daughter from his former mistress now wife that goes off at his new mistresses..? Are you seeing how absurd you point is..? And Kelly is what 30, not a child or teenager and let’s face it, her actions where completely juvenile. You are right that Kelly has a right to be upset but she should act like an adult and since she knew this women than confront her and air her grievances in an adult manner and move on. She deserves to be sued because her actions where not how adults should act, regardless of the person at fault.

  9. Ainsley says:

    Not a fan of any of them, but serves that woman right for being a hoebag. No sympathy for cheaters/people who sleep with married people. Ozzy too. All parties involved in cheating/helping someone cheat suck.

    • Huckle says:

      Serves the mistress right for being a hoebag?? what about Ozzy? He’s the one that owed the loyalty to his wife. Where’s his destroyed life and business? Where is his private information revealed? How is this other woman more deserving of hate and scorn than Ozzy? Especially, if he’s always unfaithful. I don’t see the prob anyway…Sharon will mos def get her cut of the family fortune and theres no babies (except for Kelly, lolz) if they were to divorce so I don’t understand the bruhaha.

    • Samigirl says:

      Way to slut shame! This woman didn’t make a promise to Sharon. She didn’t homewreck him – he’s done it repeatedly over the years. If anyone is a “hoebag” it’s Ozzy.

      • Crowdhood says:

        I don’t think it’s slut shaming. I think there is a fairness in expecting humans to adhere to some kind of moral decent code. The poster said Ozzy was in the wrong, too. Just because this woman wasn’t married to Sharon doesn’t mean she is exempt from judgement. She knew he was married, I would hope out of
        The kindness to strangers she would refrain. You always want to think how you would feel if the situation was reversed.

    • Good Gravy says:

      Comments like this always suggest to me that the poster got cheated on and never actually confronted her boyfriend, just attacked the third party and demanded props for it like she won a great prize. I’m right, huh?

      • Ainsley says:

        Nopers, not my relationship, but I caught my father cheating on my mother and when I told her he claimed I was the bad guy for not minding my business. And I did include Ozzy in the comment about sucking. I said everyone in this scenario sucks. All parties. No the woman didn’t owe Sharon anything, but she knew he was married and didn’t care, did she expect no fallout?

    • Wren says:

      Hi, Sharon.

  10. HK9 says:

    This is what happens when you throw stones from a glass house. Sharon was the other woman to Ozzy’s first wife, so she & Kelly need be quiet and contemplate the concept of karma.

  11. Nene says:

    Go for it Michelle. (I don’t condone cheating) Kelly acted like a bum and she deserves to be sued. Her father was the one cheating on her mother, the colourist has no obligation to her parents’ marriage. I get that she was angry but that anger was misdirected.

    • laura says:

      Yeah didn’t she claim elder abuse or some rubbish too? Funny how he’s compus mentus enough to go out on tour whenever they want but not compus mentus enough to participate in any sexual relations…. Can’t have your cake and eat it Kelly.

  12. Size Does Matter says:

    I still want to see what her neck looks like.

  13. stinky says:

    I honestly cant believe the shelf-life of this dentally challenged little toad.
    all because of that spastic Mtv show… srsly. she is beyond gross.

  14. Mary says:

    Kelly is very spoilt little girl

  15. JenniferJustice says:

    I hope Kelly does get her arse handed to her in court. She needs some serious humbling.

    That said, Ozzy isn’t capable of a “relationship”. This hairdresser may have been having sex with Ozzy for the last three years, but that’s all it was. Visits that ended with sex. Without the subtitles T.V. gives us when trying to decipher Ozzy speech, I don’t believe she could even understand what he might have been saying to her. I’m serious. He’s unintelligible these days.

  16. Skins says:

    If anybody needs a laugh go check out some videos from her short-lived singing “career” What a joke

    • eggy weggs says:

      For some reason, I have *no* idea why, I was thinking this morning about the Dave Chappelle skit in which they made fun of Kelly Osbourne.
      “Papa don’t preach? I’ve got a song for you…it’s called ‘Daughter Don’t Sing.'”
      That said, in the promo photos for the KO release “One Word,” they photoshopped her into a lovely little mod/goth critter in a Wednesday Addams dress with a slick banged bob. The one time I thought she legit looked appealing. Google photos and be shocked by the difference between photos and reality.

  17. Snowflake says:

    I think Kelly and Sharon went way over the line in the way they acted towards this lady. How many times has Ozzy cheated ffs? They act like he’s some poor innocent man that got taken advantage of. You know what he is, Sharon. Either accept it or divorce him. He does it over and over cause he knows he can. As for the mistress, I don’t buy she’s in love with him. If she is, she’s a damn fool. I don’t like her acting like she’s some innocent victim. She knew he was married. She knew what she was getting into, deal with the repercussions of your decisions. I have no sympathy for any of them.

  18. jferber says:

    Hasn’t the moneyed life softened any of the rough edges of Sharon and Kelly? They are both rabid and feral. I’d hate to meet either in a dark alley. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had physically assaulted the woman or paid someone to do so. They remind me of Tonya Harding (the ice skater) when she paid someone to bash her rival Nancy Kerrigan in the knees with a baseball bat. Clueless, classless and deranged. Yes, the woman should get the money.

  19. jferber says:

    And who would willingly sleep with Ozzy? And for what possible reason? I think Kelly and Sharon should also pay the woman for psychological help and then both get into therapy themselves stat.
