Hollywood nannies have been getting hit with a lot of bad press over the last year and now Sharon Osbourne is piling on with another story about a celebrity sleeping with the help. And unfortunately for Sharon, the celebrity involved is her husband, Ozzy Osbourne, who she says has been caught in the act at least twice.
Sharon shared her story with the ladies of ‘The Talk’ this week. The story starts innocently enough, with Osbourne mentioning that she has employed four different nannies over the years to help raise her three children. But then, things took a turn.
“I’m telling you, they were the bane of my existence,” Osbourne said. “They were all wanting to be celebrities. They were all wanting money… I caught two of them in bed with Ozzy!”
But then somewhat surprisingly, Osbourne attempted to come to her husband’s defense right after airing his dirty laundry. She mentioned that it’s well-known that Ozzy has been addicted to drugs and alcohol throughout much of his life and she claimed that the rocker was indeed “out of his mind” during the alleged nanny incidents.
Osbourne said she solved the ongoing problem by hiring a very different kind of nanny.
“At the end of the day, I hired a ‘manny’ called ‘Big Dave,’” she explained. “Never trust a nanny!”
Osbourne told the story while her co-hosts were discussing the post that actress Eva Amurri made Monday. US Weekly reported that Amurri, who is the daughter of Susan Sarandon, said her husband had to fire their nanny after she texted him that she “would love to f–k his brains out” while Amurri was away for work.
And this latest nanny story, of course, comes after celebrity sites spent much of 2015 speculating whether or not a nanny was to blame for the downfall of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s 10-year marriage. Garner herself tried to clean up that mess though in an interview with Vanity Fair last month in which she said the nanny wasn’t to blame.
“We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny,” Garner told the magazine. “She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives.”
Gwen Stefani’s ex-husband Gavin Rossdale also allegedly had an affair with their nanny prior to their divorce last August. Stefani is now famously dating her co-star from ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton.
