In recent weeks, the ongoing feud between Kanye West and Ozzy Osbourne has dominated headlines. However, the Osbourne family has now clarified their current relationship with the rapper, setting the record straight.

Sharon Osbourne’s Statement on Kanye West

During a new episode of The Osbournes Podcast, Sharon Osbourne made their stance against Kanye clear, stating:

“He eventually pulled it and that’s all we have to say. We just didn’t want to be associated with anything with him because of his stance on current issues which are very important to me and your dad.”

Sharon continued by emphasizing that Ozzy has moved on from the drama:

“We didn’t want to have any association with anybody like that. And that’s the end of it, next.”

Ozzy Osbourne vs. Kanye West: A Clash Over Copyright and Allegations

This statement from the Osbourne matriarch sheds light on their decision to distance themselves from Kanye West. It all began earlier this year when Ozzy Osbourne expressed his frustration over Kanye using a sample from his song ‘Iron Man’ without permission. In a posted message on Instagram, Osbourne accused the rapper of being an anti-Semite and causing untold heartache to many:

“Kanye West asked permission to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of ‘Iron Man’ from the US Festival without vocals & was refused permission because he is an anti-Semite and has caused untold heartache to many. He went ahead and used the sample anyway at his album listening party last night. I want no association with this man!”

Kanye West, however, did not let Ozzy’s accusations go unanswered. He took to social media and shared a photo of Sharon and Ozzy dressed as him and his wife for Halloween, insinuating that someone else is managing their social media accounts, stating:

“He obviously has a celebrity handler who’s on his account.”.

Resolution and Closure

Following this public dispute, Kanye made the decision to remove the controversial ‘Iron Man’ sample from his new song. Confirming the end of the drama, the Osbourne family asserts that Ozzy no longer has any association with the rapper.

The Osbournes Podcast, where Sharon made these statements, is available in its entirety on YouTube for further insights and context.

In conclusion, the Ozzy Osbourne vs Kanye West drama has finally come to an end, with the Osbourne family making it clear that they no longer wish to be associated with the rapper. Ozzy Osbourne expressed his disapproval of Kanye’s use of his song without permission and accused him of being an anti-Semite, causing significant distress. While Kanye initially took a jab at the Osbournes, he eventually removed the controversial sample from his new song. Now, the Osbourne family confirms that any involvement with Kanye is a thing of the past.
