Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzy Osbourne's mansion needs £300k renovation
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have been forced to abandon their Buckinghamshire home for over nine months as it needs £300,000 worth of repairs due to flood damage.
Ozzy Osbourne's home in England needs £300,000 of repairs because of flood damage.
The 65-year-old rocker and his wife Sharon Osbourne's mansion in Buckinghamshire, South East England, has been ravaged by the recent floods in the region and the couple have now been forced to flee to their Los Angeles home as renovations on the property can't begin for another nine months.
Ozzy told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It's been completely flooded. The rain has battered down the walls and seeped through everything. There is water everywhere.
''We've been told it's going to cost £300,000 to repair but we can't even go about getting it fixed because apparently it's going to take nine months to dry out. The place is ruined. If it's not one thing, it's the other.''
News of the damage on the Black Sabbath frontman's seven-acre estate comes after the Met Office revealed the UK has suffered its wettest winter since records began in 1910, and it's not the first time his home has been struck by bad luck.
In 2003, Ozzy broke a vertebra in his neck after being thrown off of a quad bike whilst riding around its gardens, and ten years ago a fire broke out in the house as the couple slept resulting in them being treated for smoke inhalation, but the unlucky streak didn't end there as in late 2004 an estimated £1 million worth of jewellery was stolen by an intruder.
