Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, paid off their $1.7 million tax debt just a week after learning about the issue from the news media. Sharon said the federal tax bill had been paid and now she’s on a mission to find out why the IRS filed a lien on one of their homes in Los Angeles.
Sharon released a statement saying, “I received a phone call from my publicist who had a reporter on the other line informing her that the IRS had just put a lien on one of our properties. I then contacted my accountant who said they knew nothing about any lien. The lien has been paid. I do intend to find out how this lien happened without the knowledge of myself or my accountants. I hope none of this reflects negatively on mine and Ozzy’s moral character.”
